Myself, I'm judging Yanks by Obama, whom you elected, and still insists on battling the non-existent warming and fighting the harmless 500 ppm CO2. This is a perfect example of stupid Americans.

*groan* Please don't judge us by the politicians - especially the ones we had no choice in! (secretary of state - not an elected position)

Granted, there does seem to be a dumbing-down worldwide!

I think Americans have the patent on stupidity. But just because you invent stupidity doesn't mean you have to keep it to yourself.

Kerry is just breeching the topic of stupidity so that the Germans will excuse all the stupid things he and Obama will be doing in the next four years. And explains the stupidity for their last 30 years.

wow tweedledumb is right again, Obama is a failure.

We agree on something, strange.

America had a president who said 'may this nation never vanish from the earth'. Canada has a hippy who says 'we still have some to sell off. then our work is done'

Any country who supports terroist supporting dictators, and who invade and occupy foreign countries, and drop bombs on the innocent people, and who say they do it for democracy while at the same time support dictators who buy their weapons, have to be the stupidest people on the planet.

Well, let me introduce you:

Gordon...Mrs Brigand.

The only thing I don't like is when a person is stupid, yet doesn't know they are stupid - they think they're smart.

The United States does not hold a monopoly on stupidity. Sure, it's a person's choice whether or not they are stupid. The only thing I don't like is when a person is stupid, yet doesn't know they are stupid - they think they're smart.
