Berlusconi: I'm Number One

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has compared himself on previous occasions to Jesus and Napoleon. Now, claiming that internal polls show him with a 75-percent approval rating, he’s bragging that he’s more popular than Obama. "The opinion polls I know say that he (Obama) is at 59 percent. Only (Brazilian President Luiz Inacio) Lula tops 60 percent—he is at 64 percent. So mine is a record high," he told reporters. Protesters at the occasion probably beg to differ: They yelled “Go Away!” at Berlusconi.
