    1. "America's Reputation in the Muslim World Is Worse Than Ever

    2. Despite a promise that America's reputation would be restored throughout the world during his tenure, public opinion of the United States is worse than ever in the Muslim world.

    3. Attacks on American diplomatic institutions in Egypt, Libya and Yemen this week highlight the low approval ratings that the United States has in the Arab world.




    4. A Pew Research Center Global Attitudes Project poll completed in June showed that in places like Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and Pakistan, U.S. favorability is lower now than it was at the end of President Bush's tenure.




    5. ... there was a huge opportunity for President Obama to improve America's reputation at the beginning of his tenure. The simple explanation, however, is that he blew it.

    6. ...there's been a ten percentage point drop in favorability in Muslim countries since 2009 and, specifically, a 19% drop in approval of President Obama's foreign policy.

    7. A 2008 promise saw president-elect Obama saying "I think we've got a unique opportunity to reboot America's image around the world and also in the Muslim world in particular." Obama also promised,

    an "unrelenting" desire to "create a relationship of mutual respect and partnership in countries and with peoples of goodwill who want their citizens and ours to prosper together."
    The world, he said, "is ready for that message."

    "The message I want to send is that we will be unyielding in stamping out the terrorist extremism we saw in Mumbai," Obama said, adding that he plans to give a major address in an Islamic capital as part of his global outreach.




    8. ... since 2009, there's been a near-universal decline in attitudes both towards President Obama and the United States generally.

    9. Far from starting a new era of harmoney between the U.S. and predominantly Muslim countries, President Obama has fared even worse than President Bush.

    10. The Washington Examiner's editorial today drove this point home, writing that President Obama's "grand vision" has been a failure.

    There is nothing wrong with a president mouthing sweet nothings to the Islamic world. But there also comes a point when Americans must recognize them for the nothings they are."

    Get that???

    Obama compared by the Arab world to Bush.....

    .....and Bush comes out ahead!!!

    Calm down chick. Broken promises are the new norm for America. As well as disrespect. Which we unfortunately deserve

    You'll have to ask PC if she's dead or illegal. I just know she can't count.
