I think that just like with machine language, the main thing that throws people off with C is the messy syntax, and in C it's always the abundance of parantheses, semicolons, and curly braces. It just looks difficult to learn.

Programs written in C, E, Basic, Amos, Blitz, and other structured, imperative programming languages look very much the same once you look past and ignore the syntax fluff.

(and yes, some languages come with great standard libraries and lots of stuff built in, and for the ones that don't you can usually find what you need on the Internet.)
