    How about that... I seem to remember being told quite frequently that the election of Barack Obama would lead to an improved perception of the U.S. in the Muslim world.

    Sectarian violence exists for a reason. Muslims don't like each other.

    ....but radicalism among the general populace of middle eastern arab muslims is just a "small minority". Sure. No different from the tiny minority of radicals in the US like McVeigh.

    Actually I know that's not fair. There is a difference between actual radicals, and radical sympathizers. And come to think of it there are McVeigh supporters everywhere you look in America. Can't walk down the street without hearing about it...

    Gonna have to call failspin on this one. Unless you're arguing that killing Bin Laden was an unnecessary provocation of the muzzies...

    Where's the fail? We were told over and over and over again that Bush was responsible for the poor favorability the Arab world had for the U.S. We were told over an over and over again that Obama would rectify that. This poll not only proves that he did not rectify that, but has actually made it WORSE.

    This isn't solely about taking out Bin Laden. Reading the poll results clearly shows just about every single policy of the Obama Administration is less favorable than what Bush polled at when he left office, not just UBL.

    I'm saying anything positive about Bush, only pointing out that the 'experts' were dead wrong about Mr. Nobel Peace Prize changing the damaged perception that 'Bush caused'.

    No, Owenay's right. Part of the 'Obama Promise' was that he was going to improve diplomatic relations with the Middle East.

    Obama has been burdened by the fact that every one of the issues that he's inherited has been more difficult than he or anyone else expected.

    Actually if you read the poll data it says the number one issue they have with Obama is him not taking a more hardline stance AGAINST Israel and FOR the Palestinians. Oh literally me...

    And that's all well and good but, but how do you explain that Obama has been burdened by the fact that every one of the issues that he's inherited has been more difficult than he or anyone else expected? :icon_cool

    What's so funny?

    I honestly believe Obama gave up everything he wanted to do once he became president in order to focus on hunting down Bin Laden. He let Pelosi, Boehner and the rest go batshit insane because they mostly left him alone with fighting the war. Any opposition they raised was mostly symbolic. One of these days I'll get around to reading his book, but from what I have heard be basically says this. The war was more important than balancing the budget or making the tax cuts permanent.
