President Obama’s ‘proud’ statements on improving US image might boomerang

It appears that some of Obama's "declarations" about the American Image have completely backfired.

He has been making statements about image all while things were heating up behind the scenes.

I wonder if his staff thought of a possible turnaround in Islamic relations in general ?

I wonder how complacent and comfortable they really Were ? (past tense now)

The Hill story

President Obama has said that elevating the image of the United States around the world was one of his proudest foreign policy accomplishments, but those remarks could boomerang and hamper his reelection bid.

The violence and anti-American protests throughout the Middle East are bringing fresh attacks on the president’s foreign policies as Muslim rage is intensifying in the region.

The protests that have spread could undercut one of the key tenants of Obama's foreign policy argument that he has restored the U.S. image in the Middle East.

In February, Obama said, “One of the proudest things of my three years in office is helping to restore a sense of respect for America around the world, a belief that we are not just defined by the size of our military.”

I bet the top White House staff has a busier week next week than this week was.

Certainly they must be considering the realities now.

Dimes to donuts says that they will be busy booking and scheduling new TV appearances and many other media events and book unveilings all set to begin next February !!

Obama and Co. stands to make 10x more money on the media circuit than presently.

4 more years will delay the windfall profits between now and 2017.

How "Proud" is Obama NOW ?

Can we see yet ?
