  • Because look at the 2jokes we haverunning for Prez. Ubder Reagan we were looked at as a workd ower now we are the laughing stock since Clinton signed thee free trade agreement!
  • They are laughing at the female vice president selection
  • Your kidding right?
  • Are they?? I dont think here in the UK we can afford to laugh at anyone, look what we have for Prime Minister.. a complete ass!!!
  • Not laughing, so much as groaning. And not at all Americans. Just the complete bollocks-up that the last 8 years have represented nationally and globally. Although I do laugh that the republican vice-presidential candidate holds views on science that should make her right at home in the 10th century.
  • We aren't.
  • George Dubya Bush, elected for two terms. it's more-so people laughing at him and his supporters as opposed to the Entire country.
  • At this moment, you may be entirely correct. The greatest nation on the face of the planet cannot take care of its own finances. America may be the "keeper of peace" for the world, but financially, America is currently a bust. It appears that people were given credit for home purchasing and credit cards, that did not qualify. given this credit, just so someone could receive a bonus on their paycheck. Its all about greed and you and i are going to pay for it. Laughing? No. its more like disgust that the watchdogs did not do their job in protecting Americas credit.
  • i cant actually believe these answers to the question!!!
  • Maybe they like an easy target.
  • Tropic Thunder was funny as hell
  • I have a dream! a dream of a country full of fat people a dream of Mcdonalds on every corner. a dream of nerds, playing video games, until they die a dream of Presidents being cocks! a dream of fast-food companys rivalling against eachother this dream,is my dream what is your dream? what is your friend's dream? why not...what is your mothers dream? well I told you my dream, and it came true America was born!
  • some people had a negative view of the US.
  • They're not they act like they are but inside they envy what we have
  • I don't hear anyone laughing..sorry rest of the world. To give another reason, they were probably raised to do so.
  • People will laugh even harderat us after this election! Just remember you saw iy here 1st thst who rver is v.p. now will be prez within 4 yrs. So make up your mind who will be best Prez Biden or Palen??? One thing she is prettier!!!
  • Its not necessarily fair, but the rest of the world does laugh at America...to be honest especially now with this huge bailout coming ahead. I think to be honest, its the way in which America lives so excessively...a few examples are: that you are in this problem now, yes because of bad policies and leadership but also because of SO MANY of you living beyond your means...I have lived all over the world and have never lived beyond my means...America's fast food wastage in one day alone is calculated as being enough to feed the whole of Africa...its the waste that angers the world and that you think America is in itself a world...
  • To be honest though...I'm British and I laugh pretty hard at England now...could a great country have messed up anymore? Look at what has happened to the UK in the last 10 years...like America...2 once great nations are falling flat on their faces.
  • Could it be because we elected the village idiot to the highest office in our country? And because he gets on television internationally butchering the English language and unable to pronounce "Nuclear?" Things should change quite a bit in January.
  • I'm still laughing at the answer I wanted to give....
  • What do you mean the rest of the world? I live in America and I'm laughing at us. Look at our choices for President this past election! A fossil and a Malcolm X-JFK wannabe. Of course I'm laughing. Not much better than our old President, I'd say...All heil the Obamessiah!!
  • The only thing that could have been worse that Obama? Was ALgore. Obama had alredy climbed in bed with all the towle heads and is one of them...He hates this country! Just ask Pastor right about Obama. They are on the same page to gather. And , the page they can be found on is in Karl Marx Coommunst manifsro.
  • Because America has earned it and deserves it
  • Living in Africa, we routinely laugh at America - wow, you voted TWICE for Bush - and we think you're a bit funny when you come here to look for your roots. But of course it's also tinged with envy. In between bouts of laughter we're trying to emigrate to the US :-)
  • Laugh at us? The world's economy chokes in fear everytime we lay someone off. You may not like us, but you need us. And laugh all you want, we are quite content here.
  • Laughing? The rest of the world is VERY impressed with America at this time.
  • Dave Chappelle, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Chris Rock, Ben Stiller, Seth Rogen, Chris Tucker, Eddie Murphy, Tina Fey... There's way to many halirious people to list!
  • Why would America care?
  • It all boils down to jealousy. Sure, we are having a tough time right now, but it won't last, it never does. America knows how to get out of a jam, it may take time, but it will happen. maybe if we stopped handing out money to the very ones who thinks it's so funny, they would be laughing out of the other side of their mouths. Who is the first one others demand a handout from when they are in a bind? Yeah..that's right..America.
  • Maybe because U.S try to resolve problems around the world when it has own problems..... P.S I am really sorry for my English
  • Are we? What did I miss?
  • It's not. Don't believe everything you read.
  • I'm part of that "rest of the world" and I'm not laughing at America. I treat America like I would any psychopath with a large gun... with a tiny bit of respect and a whole lotta fear. One of the previous answers scared me into commenting. The one that basically said that 'America's fine we've just hit a rough patch but we'll be the greatest again.' It's just that kind of attitude that destroys any hope of America garnering even a small measure of respect from the rest of the world. There's a world of difference between, "Who is the first one others demand a handout from when they are in a bind?" and "Who's the first that sticks their nose into everybody else's affairs and invades anybody who might be developing a bomb to rival the one that they're using to be the world's school-yard bully?" Don't get me wrong... there's tons of reasons to love America. Where else can a poor minority grow up and become CEO of a multi-national corporation. All it takes is the will to be dedicated, amoral and ruthless enough and you've got it made. Where else can the government say to a large corporation, "You can't sell that drug here as it kills people." And the corporation says, "Okay." and stops making the drug. Then quietly sells the millions of dollars of product that was already made to customers in France. (Who likes the Frogs anyway?) Where else can people complain that free health care is socialistic while their Government is giving billions to rich white guys who screwed up their companies through financial mismanagement. Without anything in writing to control how they spent the governments dole. Where else can the people elect a charismatic President who could possibly change the whole world's opinion of America only to have him assassinated before his first term is over? Where else can they try it again and have almost half the country claiming it's the "End of Days?" Wake up America! Nobody likes a person with the attitude... "I'm so much better than you, it's scary!" so why should we like an entire country with that attitude? Hope this helps.
  • I don't think they are as much as they were a few months ago... Other countries found out fast that where the US goes economically... So goes the rest of the planet. So even when we suck... We still set the tempo for who else sucks as a direct result. No one should be laughing. If we go... YOU go!
  • 'Cause we farted;)
  • We're laughing with you, it's okay.
  • Just look who we've had for a president for 8 years.
  • I do't think their laughing. I do think they are watching rather nervously, at times, to see what America will do next.
  • I do not think the rest of the world is laughing at the US. Infact the rest of the world is anxiously watching the economic situation in the US and the remedial action being taken by the US Government. The rest of the world is also anxious to know what changes will be there in the US policies when the next President takes over early next year. The rest of the world simply cannot afford to laugh. The destiny of all economies are so inseparably tied up with that of the US that all are willing to co-operate to the full extent in whatever proposals are there for a revival of the US and world economies. The best economics brains the world over are intensely looking for solutions to the present setback and to find ways to give momentum to all efforts for recovery that is being made.
  • Yes especially China. The easiest non hostile takeover in earth's history
  • Please do not speak for me.....
  • I wasn't aware they were.. anymore. Bush will be gone Obama will be the next president. We're trying at least.
  • b/c they can...
  • Lets see. Maybe because we elected Bush, and a Republican political majority. Less government regulation, and things will take care of themselves, right? Therefore, it is our own fault that our country is in the multifaceted economic crisis it is in at this time.
  • Because every fool thinks that all other around them are fool...............
