is obama a bonus?
i deeply concerned how the US government undertake their public diplomacy. since obama’s victory, US have manipulated his image internationally for public diplomacy purpose. formerly, I have searched that Bush was not the source for US public diplomacy. but Obama, just like a bonus for US public diplomacy strategy. how come ?
it is deeply rooted on global frustration on Bush, his administration, and US foreign policy toward Iraq, Afghanistan, and recent global economic crisis. I think, this is a hard situation for US diplomat regarding positive image of the US. unexpectedly, there is Obama that come into view as a promising successor for Bush. Obama become expected figure not only for US citizen but also for global community. beyond such a high expectation then, Obama is now become main source for US public diplomacy. just see how US Dept of State manipulate his positive image for such a particular issues.
