In the latest Pew polls, 76% of Egyptians had an unfavorable view of the Obama administration; poll numbers from Shibley Telhami found only 25% favored Obama's reelection and 85% had an unfavorable view of the U.S. in general.The good news for President Obama is that Egyptians don't vote in US Elections; at least I hope not.
The bulk of the article talks to the three things standing between us and the Egyptians:

- The Israel Problem—Do the Egyptian People really want peace with Israel?
- The "Egyptians-hate-our-policy problem"—enough said.
