I seem to recall various and assorted assholes saying the world would love us if only we had Obama as president. He's cringing all over them...and they still hate us. Gosh, didn't see that coming... Poll: Few Iranians see US favorably, despite Obama "A rare poll of Iranians says that few of them have favorable opinions of the United States, a view that hasn't changed much from before the election of President Barack Obama. The survey, taken last month, shows that 29 percent of Iranians view the U.S. positively. In February 2008, a similar poll of Iranians showed 34 percent with favorable views of the U.S."
