I thought Bush had a home-run answer to the question about the US being unpopular around the world. He invoked Reagan and the unpopularity of some of his decisions in Europe, even though those decisions were proven correct. In this framework, Bush made the unpopularity in Europe of his decisions on the war and a few other matters a matter of courage and commitment to US security. He went out of his way to talk about the International Criminal Court for the second debate in a row–a sign, surely, that Bush advisers consider that one idea that is popular in Europe but not here at home.
