The Bad Publicity Your Country Has Been Receiving
- It may not be true, as it usually is the case, but what bad publicity has your country been receiving recently or to date? Examples include being protrayed as a haven for prostitutes, having racist policies or having a government which oppresses its people.

For the US its basically every day...:hilarious

Were always doing something or causing this or that, or not giving enough. Not to say we haven't done anything....And all this is just our media! I'd hate to go over seas and see what the rest of the world was saying.

One day I hope the US becomes like Canada in stature. Known, but not known, ya know?
^and I'd like to apologize for this person right above me.

I don't like Bush, but Im not going to apologize for him, we voted for him (as a majority) so he can apologize, not us.
Now even though were getting of topic by just a smuge, I'll answer.

I personally like George Bush when it somes to international policy. Now what make me mad is that he ran as a conservative (hisss, Im hearing now), but now hes made a big left turn with his domestic agenda. We in the conservative (hiss) fold are getting very annoyed.

But as for bad press for the US the biggest thing here is the Micheal Jackson trial and the missing child of the day.
Well whoever started this forum, Im sorry for getting off

But what exactly are you putting up with? We are who we are, as a majority. If you feel like your being treated as an "idiot" by just association then I feel sorry for you. America is not just the president and the world should realize that were not all like Bush. Im not going to scream to the world "IM SORRY FOR VOTING HIM IN OFFICE!" You really need to stop being so compliant to the rest of the world. :)

Please dont take any of this personally, these forums are on cities, its not like were on Fox. :lol:

I'd like to see him apologize for warmongering, environmental attacks, etc. But that'll never happen. So until then, every time I go on vacation I have to specify to people that I hate the guy as much as they do. Or more, because he makes all the rest of us in the US look like idiots by association.

We're talking about opinions from outside our countries here. Bush is more hated than liked worldwide. In this country, too many people (and media) give him a free pass.

See, world? We have to put up with people like SDfan. And so do you if you're in a country we want to attack.
Thats whats sad about that. The world should already know that were not all like Bush, I don't think we should apologize for us being Americans. Nor should a Frenchmen say sorry for being a French because there socialists. The world already knows there are anti-Bush people in the United States, don't go to other countries and say'll look stupid and compliant to them.

No offence to non-us citizens :)
