They Told Me If I Voted McCain That the Arab Street Would Like Terrorists More and Us Less...

And they were right....except, McCain didn't win. AND, we were told that since we elected Obama, the arab street would love us and the rest of the world would respect us more....uh, WRONG-O!:
the American president's standing has never been worse in Egypt, plummeting since 2008, when he received a 25 percent favorability rating, to 12 percent in 2011. Even Osama Bin Laden, the late al Qaeda leader, was more popular this year, with a 21 percent favorability ranking. The Iranian leader fared worse, dropping from 21 percent favorability rating in 2008 to a miserable 5 percent.

The findings are drawn from a public poll of Egyptian views in the aftermath of the public uprising that brought about the resignation of Egypt's fallen leader Hosni Mubarak. The poll was commissioned by the International Peace Institute, a New York-based think tank with close ties to the United Nations and Arab governments.

How is that hopey changey stuff working out for us, again?
And by the way, where are the jobs?

Oh yeah, and what about these endless wars (Libya, Yemen) Obama has gotten us into?
