Worldview on Obama: He’s a Failure

President Obama: A failure on the road and at home (AP/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)
Barack Obama’s plummeting job performance ratings at home are nothing compared to the worldview of the American President — especially in the troubled Mideast where candidate Obama promised a different approach.

Both sides of the Mideast debate agree on one thing: Obama the President is a failure and both the Israelis and Palestinians blame him for the current state of affairs in that troubled region.

“Instead of becoming a heady triumph of his diplomatic skill and special insight, Obama’s peace process is viewed almost universally in Israel as a mistake-riddled fantasy,” writes Ben Smith on Politico. “Even those who still believe in the process that Obama has championed view his conduct as a deeply unfunny comedy of errors.”

Smith continues:

“The political peace process to which Obama committed so much energy is considered a failure so far. And in the world’s most pro-American state, the public and its leaders have lost any faith in Obama and – increasingly — even in the notion of a politically negotiated peace.”

Obama has become the Rodney Dangerfield of political leaders. He just can’t get no respect — at home or abroad.
