New York Times’ Title Says It All: ‘Obama’s economic view is rejected on world stage’

When the New York Times runs a front page story detailing that the entire world rejects a Democrat president’s economic “solutions,” you can pretty much know for certain that those “solutions” must truly, truly suck.

But that is exactly what happened yesterday:

Here’s the main page of The New York Times:

And here is the New York Times story, via the San Jose Mercury News:

Obama’s economic view is rejected on world stage

SEOUL, South Korea — President Barack Obama’s hopes of emerging from his Asia trip with the twin victories of a free-trade agreement with South Korea and a unified approach to spurring global economic growth ran into resistance on all fronts Thursday, putting Obama at odds with his key allies and largest trading partners.

The most concrete trophy expected to emerge from the trip eluded his grasp: a long-delayed free trade agreement with South Korea, first negotiated by the Bush administration and then reopened by Obama, to have greater protections for U.S. workers.

And as officials frenetically tried to paper over differences among the Group of 20 members with a vaguely worded communique to be issued today, there was no way to avoid discussion of the fundamental differences of economic strategy. After five largely harmonious meetings in the past two years to deal with the most severe downturn since the Great Depression, major disputes broke out between Washington and China, Britain, Germany and Brazil.

Each rejected core elements of Obama’s strategy of stimulating growth before focusing on deficit reduction. Several major nations continued to accuse the Federal Reserve of deliberately devaluing the dollar last week in an effort to put the costs of America’s competitive troubles on trading partners, rather than taking politically tough measures to rein in spending at home.

The result was that Obama repeatedly found himself on the defensive. He and the South Korean president, Lee Myung-bak, had vowed to complete the trade pact by the time they met here; while Obama insisted that it would be resolved “in a matter of weeks,” without the pressure of a summit meeting, it was unclear how the hurdles on nontariff barriers to U.S. cars and beef would be resolved.

Obama’s meeting with China’s president, Hu Jintao, appeared to do little to break down Chinese resistance to accepting even nonbinding numerical targets for limiting China’s trade surplus. While Lael Brainard, the undersecretary of the Treasury for international affairs, said that the United States and China “have gotten to a good place” on rebalancing their trade, Chinese officials later archly reminded the Americans that as the issuers of the dollar, the main global reserve currency, they should consider the interests of the “global economy” as well as their own “national circumstances.”

If you wanted a treaty with South Korea, you are missing Bush right about now.  Like the overwhelming majority of Ohio voters who now recognize their mistake in having voted for Obama in 2008.

Remember the European Union president saying the Obama stimulus was “a way to hell”?  From the New York Times:

PARIS — The European Union’s crisis of leadership during the economic downturn was thrown into sharp relief on Wednesday, as the current president of the 27-nation bloc labeled President Obama’s emergency stimulus package “a way to hell” that will “undermine the stability of the global financial market.”

And the last two years proves he was right.  And Obama very wrong.

The facts now prove that the countries that refused to enact massive Obama-style stimulus programs have recovered far faster with far more job growth than the U.S.

China warned that the Obama administration’s reckless monetary policies could trigger a global economic collapse.  Even as China – you know, the country that now owns us - just downgraded U.S. credit.

And now the G-20 nations are agreeing with the American people in telling Obama to go to hell.

    Another look at what the rest of the world thinks of Obama’s economic policy:

    “The rest of the world goes West when America prints more money”

    Because you can’t have the Antichrist until you have a global government in place…

    Some good quotes in there:

    Last Wednesday was a hinge point in history. The United States decided to drop all pretence of being interested in leading – or even being part of – a coordinated global policy response to the most serious economic crisis in more than 70 years.

    America is now isolated and the rest of the world is furious. The widespread use of capital controls and even a lurch into 1930s-style protectionism are both far more likely than just a few days ago.

    The world was so happy over their messiah, and now they’re just missing Bush so much. The jokes on all the fools in the world (and that’s a LOT of fools).

    And He is going to take us with Him when socialist liberals literally create hell on earth in the name of their next Utopia.
