Well by 2011 the masses outside our borders wouldn't care at all cause Obama will still be in office.
No, not really. The sort of muscular patriotism that Captain America is associated with is nowadays associated more or less exclusively with conservatism.
I can only say that viewing him thru that prism is unfair to those democrats, blue dog or otherwise, that have your "muscular patriotism". You or others have placed an unjust box around this "perception of Cap".

Cap is about Freedom and Justice and while he may be cloaked in the colors of America those concepts are more than simply American. If people can't see past his Americanism and into who the core of the character is, regardless of who is in office, then thats a sad commentary on them.
