Arabs aren't feeling the Hope! and Change!! they wanted(dead Jews and America flat) from Obama:
'He talks too much," a Saudi academic in Jeddah, who had once been smitten with Barack Obama, recently observed to me of America's 44th president. He has wearied of Mr. Obama and now does not bother with the Obama oratory.
He is hardly alone, this academic. In the endless chatter of this region, and in the commentaries offered by the press, the theme is one of disappointment. In the Arab-Islamic world, Barack Obama has come down to earth.
and Stories Obama Doesn't Want Told, including
He sees America as another pleasant country on the U.N. roll call, somewhere between Albania and Zimbabwe
(some of us figured that out a while back, but it does stand)
And one more: Honduras has an election and Zelaya finds out what those bus tires feel like.
