They hate us! They really hate us! -- President Obama may not have been able to turn the economy around as he promised, but at least he has changed America's image in the world. Unlike when President Bush was world emperor, the world community has rallied around Obama and now America is loved again, especially in the Muslim world where the U.S. was once so reviled. Hold on a sec. What? That's not even remotely true? Meagan Clark reports for TheDC:Someone yesterday noted that when Bush was president the media and Dems were desperately worried about our standing in the world, something that Obama was going to fix. How's that working out for you?
"The Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes surveyfound the approval of Obama's policies in Muslim-majority countries plummeted from an average 34 percent to 15 percent. In Pakistan, where Osama bin Laden was killed, approval is the lowest --- coming in at 7 percent. Muslim attitudes toward America and confidence in Obama also decreased."
It should be noted that the global poll also indicated that "clear majorities in Britain, Germany, France and Spain say China is the world's economic leader.” So, in fairness, those participating in the poll were idiots.
