Used to live in Latin America, but I was still a kid, so politics wasn't a big topic of conversation for me. I remember a mild anti-Americanism, but not extremes comparable to attitudes found in the Middle East, for example. I haven't been there since Bush was elected & I wonder if it's gotten particularly extreme since.
Haven’t been back, but I think so. Chavism has been on the march in several countries, and what happens is that as he makes inroads among officers and radicals, the mainstream politicians start to pander to that trying to take advantage of it, and Chavist influence is magnified as a result.
Anti-american sentiment has as a result become more aggressive. The war, and leftist rage against it, has also made anti-americanism more mainstream. “Bush Derangement” is pretty strong where ever you go these days, I suspect.
