U.S is now less popular in the region than at the end of the George W. Bush administration.

-the White House has been lowering expectations for Obama's trip to Israel all this week.

-support for the United States in Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon and Pakistan is lower today than it was in 2008 in the closing year of George W. Bush's administration

-The Arab Spring, which once raised hopes of freedom and dignity, has diverged onto the dark path of Islamist authoritarian rule.

-In Syria, tens of thousands of people have died in a bitter civil war that might have recently seen its first use of chemical weapons.

-Iran continues its march toward nuclear weapons

-confidence in Obama in Muslim countries dropped from 33% to 24% in his first term.

-A poll released last week showed he had a scant 10% approval rating in Israel, with an additional 32% saying they respect but don't like him.

-young Palestinians defaced a billboard with Obama's image and burned pictures of him in the streets

Obama is in a difficult position with Hussain as a middle name.

He has killed Bidladen, allowed North Korea and Iran to progress to having a nuke. Pulled us out of Iraq and is in the process of pulling out of Afghanistan.

Under Obama the superpower USA is in retreat from being a global leader. Instead President Obama has established the USA as a leader in golf, basketball picks, Hollywood supporter, observer of attacks on US installations, supporter of Jews AND the PLO.

President Obama doesn't understand consistancy.

He wants to support everyone and play golf and basketball.

Obama got a standing ovation from some self-loathing Jewish college students as he was pimping for the poor, downtrodden, Palestinian terrorists.

Nice observation, Obama is always playing college students.

Those at that age must be gullible in the USA and Israel.
