Obama’s Popularity in Arab World Now Lower than Bush’s

James Zogby, the anti-Israel pollster who released these findings today, blames the drop in support for Obama in the Arab world on Obama’s failure to put the amount of pressure on Israel the Arab world wanted and expected. But according to the poll, the Arab world doesn’t seem to be happy with any of America’s foreign policy positions.

Most surprisingly, Obama’s approval ratings are even lower than President Bush’s before he left office in 2008.

Obama’s unique background 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, it looks like relations are worse than before.

    Do not forget, to a Muslim, Barky is an apostate.

    Wore than a non-believer, worse than a Christian, worse than a Jew is the one who was once Muslim and no longer submits to Mohammed.

    And that is exactly what he is.

    Unless, of course, he is still a Muslim.

    Well, he’s the anterior portion of a horse anyway.

    (And just BTW, does anyone find it odd that there’s an “anti-Israel pollster” whose name begins with “ZOG”? Mr Serling, call your agent…..)

    Well at least he stopped the sea levels from rising (if you don’t hold that Japan thing against him).
