With all of the US embassies in Middle East being attacked in the last few days, it sure doesn't seem like our current democratic administration has achieved the results of bettering the US image abroad. Here's a link for a recent news report from Reuters.
I remember how the message we heard so loudly 4 years ago was how George W. had isolated the US and disinfranchised other countries, essentially fostering an anti-US movement around the globe. Question is, will the media react to these recent attacks calling the Obama adminstration insensitive, incompetent, and incapable of improving US relations with our "friends" in the Middle East? No, it's because of a youtube video titled "Innocence of Muslims". Um...what? Attacking US embassies (because the video is believed to have originated from the US) seems like a reasonable, rational response from a very progressive and tolerant culture.
