Surprise! Poll Finds Most Think US-Muslim Relations Worse Under Obama

Remember this gem from Cairo?

“I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition.”

And this one from 2007?

“If I’m reaching out to the Muslim world, they understand that I’ve lived in a Muslim country,” he continued. “And I may be a Christian, but I understand their point of view.”

How’s that working out?

(Daily Caller) A plurality of likely voters — or 45 percent — believe that U.S. relations with the Islamic world are worse under President Barack Obama than they were under President George W. Bush, according to a Rasmussen poll released on Tuesday.

A mere 18 percent believe that U.S.-Muslim relations are better, while 31 percent believe relations have stayed the same since Obama took the White House four years ago.

We certainly can’t blame it all on Obama: we have to consider that the continuous growth of extremist Islam plays a big part in the equation. Of course, when we consider Obama’s foreign policy, which is a muddled, mixed up, often contradictory, and mostly incoherent, we get a good picture. While he yammers on about peace and stuff, he uses drone strikes like some people use nicotine gum.

He said he’d close Guantanamo Bay, yet didn’t do any work to follow through.

The relationship between the Obama admin. and many Islamic nations, most notably Pakistan and Afghanistan, have become much worse. Blowing off the Iranian “green revolution”, leading from behind for the Arab Spring, starting a war of choice in Libya then only having slightly harsh words for Syria, etc and so on, they all contribute to a poor relationship. Kowtowing and apologizing to Islamists for our core freedoms certainly doesn’t help.

Then there’s Iran. That open hand with no pre-conditions sure worked miracles, eh?

On the flip side, it takes two to tango, and countries with ever increasing governments and people pushing for hardcore Islamic values certainly doesn’t help.

    However, now that Madonna has “outed” Obama as Muslim, the seas will part and the Jihad will end and all will be right with the world caliphate.

  2. john says:

    Sooooo 49% of Americans think that our relations with the muslims are the same or better, and fewer 45% think they have gotten worse.

    Of course john, you are missing the context of the statement. If you remember, Obama claimed he was going to fix the relationship between the Islamic world and America that allegedly George Bush had screwed up.

    The majority of people think he hasn’t done that.

    Try looking at it this way…..

    People think that you’re an ignorant troll.

    A year later, 31% think you are less of an ignorant troll. At the same time, 61% think you are the same ignorant troll you have always been or you have gotten to be more ignorant and more “toll-ish.”

    That isn’t a compliment or a sign of success, john.
