India by the numbers

Survey SAYS!...Bush polls better in India than in the U.S.

A Pew Global Attitudes survey taken ahead of the president's trip to the subcontinent shows that 71 percent of Indians are favorable toward the U.S. and the president himself is popular with 64 percent of the population.

But don't look for those numbers in the American press -- you'll have a hard time finding them. They're too busy covering the roughly one thousand Muslim extremists and Communists are who are protesting the state trip.

I wonder why the Indians like him (and us) so much. Hard to say, but maybe it's because they've been dealing with Muslim extremists for decades and understand how important it is to stand up to them.
