Zogby: Obama's Popularity in Arab World Now Lower than Bush'sTopics: Political News and commentaries
Hmmm..., apparently all that hopey/changey, kowtowing-to-Islam, Muslim outreach crap isn't workin' out so well:
... Obama's approval ratings are even lower than President Bush's before he left office in 2008. They dropped from 26 percent to 12 percent in Morocco, 9 percent to 5 percent in Egypt, 16 percent to 10 percent in Jordan and 22 percent to 12 percent in the UAE (though they did improve in Saudi Arabia, and tick up slightly in Lebanon).As the piece goes on to note, Obama's "unique" background (perhaps referring to his Muslim background and his statement in Egypt that he is a Muslim?) was supposed to make him a prime candidate to improve the relationship between the U.S. and the Arab world. But more than halfway through his first term, not only has there been no progress (even with all his appeasement to Islam), it looks like relations are even worse than before he came into office.
