Obama ratings up in Arab countries ahead of visit

Tunisia in north Africa saw the largest percentage change, with Obama's ratings rising to 37 percent from a 14 percent approval rating for Bush in June last year.Obama also registered a double-digit rise in popularity in Syria, where 15 percent of those polled said they approved of the US president compared with only four percent for Bush last year.

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama's popularity in Arab nations has risen sharply compared to his predecessor George W. Bush, a poll showed Monday ahead of his trip to the heart of the Arab-Muslim world.

In seven out of 10 Arab countries plus the Palestinian territories surveyed by Gallup, Obama's popularity saw double-digit percentage increases compared with ratings for Bush compiled mostly from last year, the poll showed.

"These upsurges may reflect positive reception to Obama and his administration's public outreach to the Muslim world," Gallup analysts said in a report published with the poll results.

"The president's overtures toward pulling US troops out of Iraq and closing Guantanamo Bay prison ... also may have resonated with residents," said the report issued ahead of Obama's departure for Saudi Arabia and Egypt.

In Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, Obama will hold talks with King Abdullah, seeking Arab support for US peace efforts for the Middle East.The following day, the US leader will make a personal address in Egypt to the world's Muslims, seeking to heal rifts and rebuild Arab trust in the United States.

Approval of the US president was up by 19 points to 25 percent in Egypt and up 17 points to 29 percent in Saudi Arabia from ratings in May 2008 of six and 12 percent for Bush, the poll showed.

But the poll showed that Obama's popularity fell in the Palestinian Territories from 13 percent for Bush to seven percent and also declined in Lebanon, from 25 to 22 percent in May 2008.Gallup speculated that the drop in the Palestinian territories was "perhaps related to Obama's silence during Israel's attacks on Gaza shortly before he took office."

You can bet we will only get more lies!

Obama's Passport:

Since Mr. Obama won't respond truthfully on his birth issue I believe the issue can be resolved by Obama answering one simple question: What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi?

How did a young man, who arrived in New York in early June 1981, without the price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of a round-the-world trip just a month later? And, once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi, what passport was he offering when he passed through Customs and Immigration? The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, they must have answers. It makes the debate over Obama's citizenship a rather short and simple one.

Q: Did he travel to Pakistanin 1981, at age 20?
A: Yes, by his own admission.
Q: What passport did he travel under?
A: There are only three possibilities. 1. He traveled with a U.S.passport, 2) He traveled with a British passport, or 3) He traveled with an Indonesian passport.
Q: Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. passport in 1981?
A: No. It is not possible. Pakistan was on the U.S. State Department's "no travel" list in 1981.

Conclusion: When Obama went to Pakistanin 1981 he was traveling either with a British passport or an Indonesian passport.

If he traveled with a British passport, that would be proof that he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims.

If he traveled with an Indonesian passport that would prove that he relinquished whatever previous citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by his Indonesian step-father in 1967.

Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a "natural born" American citizen between 1981 and 2008. Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress and the disastrous spending plan he has presented to Congress, the sooner we learn the truth of all this, the better.

Count me in as one of those inquiring minds who'd at least like to know the answers to these easily answered (by Obama) questions. :confused:
