Remember when our moral superiors said the world would love us once Obama was in office? Yeah, about that.
President Obama in June 2009 in one of his first major foreign policy initiatives delivered a highly publicized speech in Cairo reaching out to Muslims worldwide after the conflict of the Bush years. But only 18% of Likely U.S. Voters think U.S. relations with the Islamic world are better now than they were four years ago.
A plurality (45%) of voters believe those relations have gotten worse since then, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Thirty-one percent (31%) say America’s relationship with the Islamic world is about the same.
Seeing our ambassador to Libya being murdered and dragged through the streets is just so unhelpful to Obama’s re-election efforts. How unfair!
