World to USA: "your notions of democracy suck ass" [Purp]

Even with the worldwide Obama lovefest bump from 2008-2012, we're still under the 50% mark in the "shining example" category with a lot of countries.

Although there's no 2012 data on them, we're probably still a solid lock with Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Kenya based on the 2007 figures, so at least we got that. Given their dysfunctional systems, looking impressive isn't a big deal though.

If the USA isn't setting a (perceived) positive example for others and inspiring them, then what the hell are we doing? And should we keep doing whatever that is?

I'd like to hear how the president and congress would answer those questions.
