Canadians for Obama?

I'm visiting Thunder Bay, Ontario on business. To pass the time in the evenings we stopped at Chapters (like a Borders) to get some coffee and browse. As an American visiting a foreign country, I am slightly freaked out that this giant display greets all incoming patrons:

Oh I swear there are so many people up here who are nuts about Obama. They did a news report about how there were a lot of Canadians who went in chartered buses down to be there at his inauguration. And there is so much hype about how Obama's first visit to a foreign nation is here next month. (Never mind that's the traditional first visit).

Back when Bush was in, people up here wanted pretty much nothing to do with America.

I don't think a lot of Americans know just how badly Bush was disliked up here. Even Conservatives and their ilk didn't like him.

I feel like I saw things like this in Australia as well.

I don't think anyone was more looking forward to someone (especially Obama) replacing Bush than the entire rest of the world.

Which makes sense. Bush ruling your closest neighbor has got to make you anxious.

You should come to Europe and see how people here love him

Well, let's face it - no-one wants to read a Stephen Harper hagiography...

I agree
the infatuation that people have with him is quite weird/bizarre.

The honeymoon will end soon once the "stimulus" package passes with its protectionist trade policies.
