384. I don't think we, here, have any idea how destructive Bush was to our image abroad
We all know the rest of the world was much more aware of the abuses of our government around the world than we were at home. And I think we have no idea how much the rest of the world sees President Obama as bringing us back from the brink of becoming a dictatorial evil empire. The committee likely saw President Obama's diplomatic efforts as a significant turning point in the world. I don't think we see how much he has changed the trajectory, blinded as we are by the biased reporting of the MSM.
