Bibi in 2012?

Americans like Netanyahu better than Obama

US President Barack Obama accidentally let it be known last week that he doesn’t think much of Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu. But that’s OK, because Obama’s own countrymen actually prefer Netanyahu over their own president.

A poll conducted by the group Greenber Quinlan Rosner found that 52.3 percent of Americans rate Netanyahu positively, compared to 51.5 percent for Obama. Other polls have Obama’s approval ratings even lower, while Netanyahu has been consistently winning praise.

The results of the poll were enthusiastically discussed on Israel’s Channel 10 News on Thursday.

Well, at least he’s not Romney.
