    Liberation of Egypt vs. Bushitification of Iraq

    It is great the way things work out when we have an adult in the White House.

    We didn't even have to invade Egypt in search of falsified WMD to advance democracy in the Middle East.

    What do you think Obama SHOULD have done?  Falsify WMD reports from Intelligence and then invade?  No.  That's a hawk tactic.  There's a lot to learn from Obama's approach.  Stay out of it and promise both sides support in creating a democracy with term limitations.

    Keep in mind that Mubarik AND Sadaam Hussein were once close allies with the U.S.  So was Castro for that matter.  U.S. puppet dictators are becoming very unpopular and we have to keep a pulse on others out there.

    If it turns out badly we know who you will blame for "losing Egypt".  If it turns out well the same guy will get no credit.  Pretty typical mode of thinking.

    Time magazine:
    "The Obama Administration cut democracy-and-governance aid to Egyptian opposition groups in its first two years in office, from $45 million in George W. Bush's last budget to $25 million for the 2010 and 2011 fiscal years. The Obama Administration also stopped providing aid to groups that had not registered with the Egyptian government, drawing criticism from human-rights organizations."

    The two could not be more apples and oranges, so much so you could call it apples and elephants. For you to sit here and claim Egypt an Iraq are a parallel comparison does not bode well for any future posts that you would like us to take seriously. Your level of ignorence on this one is off the charts.  

    This comparison is so rediculas one can only think this thread was started purely to generate reaction. Don't bite on this one guys!

    Thank you, Bob, for pointing out that President Obama made a bold, deficit-reducing break with the failed policies of the Bush era. 

    And look at the felicitous result of President Obama's courageous break with the profligate rebuglican ways.  Egypt is liberated from a corrupt despot. 

    That is what I call leadership!  That is change you can believe in!

    Substantively, it probably had nothing to do with it, but history loves coincidences, and Obama's well-received speech at Cairo University two years ago (an american president speaking directly to the muslim world in well-articulated terms of freedom and democracy) could be viewed as a turning point in the middle east.  And the speech was after american diplomatic relations with the muslim world had been so damaged by the Bush Admin.  Now, the Egyptians have their own "new beginning".

    However, there's no doubt u.s. intelligence was caught completely bent over itself...again...

    ...way to fall bass-ackwards into it, guys...!!

    Good point.  Many demand spending cuts as long as they're domestic cuts - not military.  This cut worked for Obama.  They asked for it.  They got it. Toyota.

    So, Obama was so brilliant he somehow knew cutting aid to Egyptian opposition groups would allow the Egyptian opposition groups to succeed.
    LOL!!
    http://www.haaretz.com/news/obama-cuts-funds-to-promote-democracy-in-egypt-by-50-1.284490

    April 2010

    President Barack Obama has dramatically cut funds to promote democracy in Egypt, a shift that could affect everything from anti-corruption programs to the monitoring of elections.

    Washington's cuts over the past year - amounting to around 50 percent - have drawn accusations that the Obama administration is easing off reform pressure on the autocratic government of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to ensure its support on Mideast policy, including the peace process with Israel.

    The policy in part reflects a change in focus, with more development and economic aid to Afghanistan and Pakistan. It also reflects how Obama has moved away from his predecessor George W. Bush's aggressive push to democratize the regimes of the Middle East.

    "Obama wants change that won't make the Egyptian government angry," said Ahmed Samih, head of a Cairo-based organization that in 2005 used U.S. funds to monitor parliament elections. And in the Egyptian context, that means there will be no change.

    I haven't seen Obama taking any credit for this situation.  These arguments are mostly hypothetical and the opinions of one person.  The fact is that Mubarik stepped down with his own stash of billions of dollars and Egypt is still our ally.

    If anyone deserves credit, it's the Egyptian citizens.

    If, you read these posts Matty; it proves my point that while some on the right still think Obama may be a Muslim even after he states and shows he's not; some on the left still think Bush falsified evidence to go to war with Iraq!!

    Loons meet the loons!!

    Obama should get credit for this just as he should be held accountable for Iran if, it gets worse.

    It's called being POTUS and it's part of the job!

    Please explain.

    On your theory, it's Obama's fault that I stubbed my toe this morning.  He was president, it was on "his watch" and all that.

    No you won't be able to get the answer from O'Reilly, pin-head.
