Top White House adviser David Axelrod on Monday said that President Obama's trips to Europe, Turkey and Latin America in the last three weeks have made anti-American sentiment uncool and "created a new receptivity" to U.S. interests.

My understanding is what he said is not true. So I wonder: am I wrong, is he mistaken, or is he lying? (Or has he been misreported?) My hunch is he is lying, trying to establish his narrative. But I would like to know for sure.
