They now love the president, but they're still anti-American

Check out this hilarious example of gratuitous (and dishonest) anti-Americanism from the AP.

The headline: Iraq wraps up election with major violence

They were really hoping that's all you would read, as the lead paragraph exposes the lie:

Iraq's provincial elections have wrapped up without any reports of serious violence.
Polls closed at 6 p.m. local time (10 a.m. EST) on Saturday--an hour later than planned. Millions of voters cast ballots for influential regional councils around most of Iraq.

Shame on those of you who were naïve enough to think that electing a president the press loves woudl cause them to suddenly start liking America. Nor will it change the fundamental US-hate in Europe.

You can lead a journalist to the water on which Obama is walking, but you can't make him drink.
