    Did they specifically use that term?

    Not that it matters, though. They most certainly called him an 'idiot' and that's just the '******' of the 19th century, was used in exactly the same way in medical journals as were terms like imbecile, moron, etc. Pretty sure '********' was invented as the PC version of idiot!

    It doesn't show that at all, it shows how much everyone outside the US hates the Republican party. Lesser of two evils: he's using some pretty indiscriminate military tactics but at least he hasn't invaded any countries because he thinks God told him to.

    But yeah, I don't think people outside Pakistan are too bothered with it. But they'd vote against Romney anyway.

    i think it shows they know obama is a chill enough guy who hasn't really made the world a worse place yet (hi pews) whereas they know romney as the guy who hates 47% of the population. i don't think it's a very interesting poll. i just wanted the flying killing robots joke.

    well actually pretty much no-one in kenya being undecided was pretty interesting. did they only poll 7 people or something

    Yes, repeatedly. Just search youtube and you'll see clips all over the place of all sorts of people (not just comedians).

    Agree with the Upper****. As I've said earlier, for the rest of the world, the drone stuff is a non-issue. It's all about making sure Romney never holds the levers of power. History should, by rights, judge Obama so ****ing harshly for it, though. Nobel Peace Prize, indeed!

    Tbh Coulter must be top of an hate-**** list. Speaking of which I see Louise Mensch has been in America for a couple of weeks and is now an expert on American Politics. Fox News awaits.

    Anyway more GOP fun. When this lot get elected it's really gonna help me on the whole looking-down-on-septics thing

    That's hardly a shocking position for a religious conservative though.

    Well, TBH, if it's not shocking then I'm glad I don't live in a country where it's considered normal for anyone.

    Not to sound like I'm defending such putrid statements, but it just sounds like the normal Christian belief that everything happens according to God's plan. That would include a woman's rape and the subsequent pregnancy that results from it. So to abort that child would be screwing with God's plan. This is all, of course, completely ignoring the fact that people who believe this don't actually follow through on their own logic, because that would mean that abortion must've been a part of God's plan as well.

    Well, I'm not a christian, but TBH it's fairly offensive to the vast majority of them to say this is what they all believe. Free-will and all that. See this is why most of us find US religion so bizarre, it really isn't the same in most civilised countries. These people are extremists IMHO.

    Anyway, Trump's thing really doesn't even deserve mentioning, what a clown.

    Oh but then again

    Not surprised by either being not popular in Pakistan. Surprised by Obama being more popular in India though, as India has traditionally had better relations with Republican regimes and Obama mentioning India a few times in terms of outsourcing became news here.

    Wonder how much of this also the fact that Obama is more known being president for 4 years than Romney.

    Hmm ? Never been to USA and Don't really care that much who wins personally tbh.

    Didn't see much wrong with the VP debate or the 3rd debate moderator which Democrats won for me too.

    The survey results were very similar in terms of McCain vs. Obama in 2008.

    Yeah, as Grecian said, in OZ and I presume generally outside of the US, that **** is considered weapons-grade crazy and you rarely hear it.
