    Well folks, it seems that the worlds leaders are finally seeing hussein for what he is.


    "I think as the president heads to Europe, he faces a huge public relations disaster," said Nile Gardiner, director of the conservative Heritage Foundation's Margaret Thatcher Center for Freedom.

    "Europe is increasingly turning against his massive spending plans, which most European leaders see as a destructive way to move forward for the global economy and will only add to a massive American debt burden," Gardiner told FOXNews.com.

    "At the same time, there is a growing impression across Europe that the Obama administration is inept and inefficient and increasingly poorly managed."

    A top European Union politician on Wednesday slammed Obama's plans for the U.S. to spend its way out of recession as "a way to hell."

    Despite all the Anti-American BS, the reality is that the legitimate World leaders know that the US has always been the primary economic engine of the World and that the dollar has always been reliable because the political stability of the US. Now they see a shuck and jive no-nothing in charge, doing idiotic things, that are going to basically undermine the stability of the dollar.

    You bet they're worried. As well they should be.

    George Soros said the current economic crisis has been the culmination of his life's work

    A hedge fund manager who predicted the global credit crunch has said the financial crisis has been 'stimulating' and the culmination of his life's work.

    George Soros, who predicted the global financial crisis twice before, was one of the few people to anticipate and prepare for the current economic collapse.

    Mr Soros said his prediction meant he was better able to brace his Quantum investment fund against the gloabal storm.

    But other investors failed to take notice of his prediction and his decision to come out of retirement in 2007 to manage the fund made him $US2.9 billion.

    And while the financial crisis continued to deepen across the globe, the 78-year-old still managed to make $1.1 billion last year.

    'It is, in a way, the culminating point of my life’s work,' he told national newspaper The Australian.

    Soros is one of 25, top hedge fund managers from across Wall Street who have defied the credit crunch crisis to reap a total of $11.6billion (£7.9bn) last year.

    The managers made their profit by trading above the pain in the markets, according to Institutional Investor’s Alpha Magazine.

    Former maths professor James H. Simons, who has made billions in hedge fund Renaissance Technologies, earned $2.5 billion running computer-driven trading strategies.

    And John A. Paulson, who made his fortune by betting against the housing market, came in second earning $2 billion.

    Big hitters: John Paulson and James H Simons were part of a group of 25 hedge fund managers who make a total of $11.6bn

    The managers made the profit in a year when losses were recorded at two of every three hedge funds and when hedge funds lost an average of 18 percent, according to the New York Times.

    Two of the three managers who tied for ninth place, at $250 million, are based in Britain and include David Harding of Winton Capital and Alan Howard of Brevan Howard Asset Management.

    Another Brevan Howard employee Christopher Rokos also made the list."
