MUS­LIM DIS­MAY

Huck­abee’s White House run in 2008, and son of for­mer South Carolina Gov­er­nor Car­roll Camp­bell.

“In the quest to re­place Barack Obama, we must quickly look to the fu­ture,” the younger Mr. Camp­bell says. Af­ter meet­ing Mr. Hunts­man, he’s sold.

“I was ex­tremely im­pressed. As gov­er­nor of Utah, he demon­strated he is the type of prob­lem-solver our coun­try needs. He’s a proven con­ser­va­tive who cut taxes, grew jobs, passed free-mar­ket health care re­form, and signed strong pro-life leg­is­la­tion,” Mr. Camp­bell adds. “The rise of pro-democ­racy move­ments has not led to an im­prove­ment for Amer­ica’s im­age in the re­gion. In­stead, in key Arab na­tions and in other pre­dom­i­nantly Mus­lim coun­tries, views of the U.S. re­main neg­a­tive — in­deed, in Jor­dan, Tur­key and Pak­istan views are even more neg­a­tive than they were one year ago,” says a mas­sive new sur­vey by the Pew Re­search Cen­ter’s Global At­ti­tudes Pro­ject (http://pewglobal.org), re­leased just in time for Pres­i­dent Obama’s mas­sive new pol­icy speech on the Mid­dle East on May 19.

“Obama him­self re­mains un­pop­u­lar in the Mus­lim na­tions polled, with the ex­cep­tion of In­done­sia, and most dis­ap­prove of the way he has han­dled the calls for po­lit­i­cal change roil­ing the re­gion,” the sur­vey says. “In Jor­dan, just 28 per­cent ex­press con­fi­dence in Pres­i­dent Obama to do the right thing in world af­fairs; in Tur­key, just 12 per­cent. And in in­ter­views con­ducted be­fore U.S. forces killed Osama bin Laden, the sur­vey finds just 10 per­cent of Pak­ista­nis ex­press­ing con­fi­dence in Pres­i­dent Obama.” wounded pa­tients from Wal­ter Reed Army Med­i­cal Cen­ter and Na­tional Naval Med­i­cal Cen­ter and those who pro­vide the con­tin­uum of med­i­cal care from the bat­tle­field to the home front.

“The PenFed Foun­da­tion does an in­cred­i­ble job help­ing wounded vet­er­ans and mil­i­tary fam­i­lies, and the Gala pro­vides a venue to cel­e­brate the ac­com­plish­ments of ex­tra­or­di­nary in­di­vid­u­als who have served our countr y while also rais­ing aware­ness and fi­nan­cial sup­port for the PenFed Foun­da­tion’s crit­i­cal pro­grams,” Mr. Boal tells the In­side the Belt­way.

“The battle isn’t over when de­ploy­ment ends. By hon­or­ing mil­i­tary heroes and those in the mil­i­tary med­i­cal com­mu­nity, we’re giv­ing thanks to the men and women who de­fend our nation and let­ting them know that their sac­ri­fice will not be for­got­ten,” he adds.
