Early in this crisis, one of the most wise people on Egypt in the entire world told me the following joke:
Aide: "Do you want to say good-bye to the Egyptian people?" Mubarak: "Why? Are they going somewhere?"
As I told you, the regime was not going to give up and reports of its death were greatly exaggerated.
This is a huge lesson in political culture. It also shows just how bad the media coverage has been! Mubarak is not resigning. He's managing the "reform" process. He is appointing a committee to study constitutional changes. He will decide when there are elections. He is going to "consider" changing the emergency law.
He basically said: I am an Arab warrior, not a community organizer. That speech should be required reading for anyone who wants to understand the Middle East.
As I told you this is not over yet. There has been no revolution so far. The protesters are going to freak out. Obama gave this jaunty statement of victory applauding Mubarak's resignation, extolling Egypt's new democracy, and claiming it was his doing. Either he didn't know what Mubarak was going to say or he is going to look like a total fool.

>>Either he didn’t know what Mubarak was going to say or he is going to look like a total fool.<<
This reminds me of his trip to Europe to lobby for the Olympics coming to Chicago. You don’t make a big deal out of something like that unless you already know the outcome and it is in your favor.
Again, he demonstrates that he is an amateur, and a poor one at that. In good times, we could survive such a “leader”. But times are not good. We need better, and this presidency is gonna leave a mark.
Our President, Our CIA, Everything Obama SUCKS! They are a bunch of blithering idiots and a danger to the Republic. Can’t something be done? This is beyond the pale. We will never survive 2 more years of Obama.
Guess he should have minded his own d@mn bidness.
Like I said in another thread, good outcome for ‘us’...so far.
O just had his butt handed to him on a MelMac platter.
Resign Barack Obama. Resign Hillary Clinton.
EXACTLY! Unprecedented in American presidential history, the POSOTUS should resign or be impeached. Are there any men left in Washington?
Resign Barack Obama.
