President Mohammed Morsi, It’s OK, He’s Obama’s Dictator

Really what can go wrong?  The Obama administration tacit approval of the overthrow of Hosni Mubarak was championed as “the New democratic process” in the Middle East.  And the “Arab Spring” elections in Egypt brought the Muslim Brotherhood’s very own Mohammed Morsi. Egyptians Protest MubarakEgyptian President Morsi

  1. “We look forward to working together with President-elect Morsi and the government he forms, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States.

    We believe that it is important for President-elect Morsi to take steps at this historic time to advance national unity by reaching out to all parties and constituencies in consultations about the formation of a new government. We believe in the importance of the new Egyptian government upholding universal values, and respecting the rights of all Egyptian citizens – including women and religious minorities such as Coptic Christians. Millions of Egyptians voted in the election, and President-elect Morsi and the new Egyptian government have both the legitimacy and responsibility of representing a diverse and courageous citizenry.

    The United States intends to work with all parties within Egypt to sustain our long-standing partnership as it consolidates its democracy. We commend the Presidential Election Commission and the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) for their role in supporting a free and fair election, and look forward to the completion of a transition to a democratically-elected government. We believe it is essential for the Egyptian government to continue to fulfill Egypt’s role as a pillar of regional peace, security and stability. And we will stand with the Egyptian people as they pursue their aspirations for democracy, dignity, and opportunity, and fulfill the promise of their revolution.”
    – Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary

    Yeah, how’s that working out for you folks in the White House now?

  2. Oh, you thought we were going to have democracy? Oh no no, we were just ‘pretending’ to have democracy. Haven’t you heard of Al Taquia? No? I could tell you … but then I would have to kill you. Just kidding! Truce, brother, truce. I kill you 😉

    • That was funny, Justin,
      Truth be told, my friends in Egypt are really scared of this guy. As is usual in these situations, it was Mubarak’s laissez-faire attitude towards corruption and graft that brought about his downfall, and maybe Egypt’s

      • Oh dear God. Really? You are really going to sit there and blame Morsi’s power grab on Mubarak? Not that I do not support Mubarak, but seriously man, Morsi was given his own brain at birth, and is capable of making his own decisions. Blaming Bush isn’t the right answer here, bud.

  3. No Greg…. I’m not lamenting anything but the lockstep attitude of the sheep like you who refuse to see the absolute disaster that is the Obama Middle East foreign policy. But hey …. you did vote for that.

  4. Ah yes, and Mubarak, Reagans dictator, certainly let freedom ring in Egypt didn’t he? Operating the country for his entire reign under Emergency Law- suspending the constiution, legalizing censorship and controlling the press, outlawing unapproved political activity such as opposition parties, protests and demonstrations, allowing arrest and jailing without trial or charges holding an estimated 30,000 political prisoners, holding occasional elections where no one was allowed to run against him (and when finally, at the end, allowing some opposition- rigging the election). But he was a “friendly dictator”- one who could be counted on to take the US money (while pocketing large sums” and do what he was told.

    And never mind that Morsi is not Obamas dictator. He was elected by the people of Egypt in their first free and fair election in decades. Never mind that he has not followed the wishes and demands of the muslim brotherhood.

    And never mind that no one yet knows what his recent steps mean. Whether he intends it as a power grab for his own motives- or whether this is seen as the only way to allow the new constitution to take shape and take force in a country where Mubarak era strongmen in the judiciary have dissolved the lower house of parliament- those elected by the people, and taken numerous other steps to keep Egypt from forming a working government or rule of law.

    • druggie,
      When you said “suspending the constiution, legalizing censorship and controlling the press, outlawing unapproved political activity such as opposition parties, protests and demonstrations, allowing arrest and jailing without trial or charges “, I thought you must have been refering to OWEbozo, but when you said, ‘rigging the election”, I was sure of it.
