Why dont you understand that anger towards USA goes towards the governments foreign policy (and probably to some extent towards people that support it) and has nothing to do with common people?

So... America bashing is a moot point because tourism up. Not quite seeing that point.
I'd be more inclined to go with the explanation that tourism is up due to the low dollar.

Hmmm. I suspect it has less to do with "bashing" than the value of the dollar.
Also, most people are intelligent enough to distinguish between America and Americans, and Bush's foreign policies. Critics don't equate them all - that privilege is generally reserved for the few supporters here at home who are making political hay on the (totally synthetic) equation.
