Appearing on "The O’Reilly Factor," former Bush Press Secretary Dana Perino
claimed that the U.S. had not lost any standing in the world during the Bush
administration. “I actually think that we are respected in the world,” said Perino.
However, in December 2008, the Pew Global Attitudes Project released a report
showing that “the U.S. image abroad is suffering almost everywhere“:
Opposition to key elements of American foreign policy is widespread in Western
Europe, and positive views of the U.S. have declined steeply among many of
America’s longtime European allies. In Muslim nations, the wars in Afghanistan
and particularly Iraq have driven negative ratings nearly off the charts.
During her tenure at the Bush administration, Dana Perino falsely claimed that she had "debunked" the pre-war Downing Street memo; that claim was met with laughter.
