Didja hear Hillary’s robotic response to this? She is the most incompetant, sloppily-dressed, dirty-haired Secretary of State we’ve had in the history of the country. She makes Madelaine Half-Bright look like a well-dressed model.

Gibbs!

So now twitter and facebook are fundamental human rights. Is the UN all over this?

Oh, well....as long as they're concerned.

Let's just hope it doesn't escalate into stroking of chin and knitting of brow. That's the redline.

So, I guess Obama is on the Islamists’ side.

Wasn’t it just a couple days ago that the MSM was insulting Palin for releasing her analysis to the SOTU on facebook - calling it childish.

Now, the One is using twitter to comment on the implosion of Egypt?

hmm

I suspect that you are right. He will say or do nothing until the Brotherhood owns Egypt. They never witnessed a crisis that they couldn't take an advantage of.

I was going to write 'unbelievable', but it's not.

Our Nation is being run by an incompetent community organizer with exactly zero executive experience of any kind. He's surrounded himself with a mixture of Harvard educated policy wonks and radical left-wing nutjobs, not one of whom has any real, practical experience with crisis situations.

And he's got his people sending out Tweets?

We are so screwed....

And the opposition party playing The Dating Game with him and his comrades.

We’re in for a world of hurt.

Somehow, someway this is Bush’s fault.

Foreign policy by Twitter.

Reagan must be spinning in his grave at 100K RPM right now.

But maybe I’m just being unfair, what with destroying an economy, weakening our military, lowering our strategic defenses, bowing to foreign heads of state, taking over the medial industry — our Dear Reader is a busy man. He’ll get to the tawdry mess in Egypt right after he gets his daily ice cream and has his nails done.

The White House is SCARED! They are afraid to have a spokesperson come out in public.

They can't find anyone competent enough to make the right statements. They are afraid they will screw up. They are afraid to lead.

So did we think it would be any different with Clinton and Obama when we hit a real crisis??

We know B.Hussein Obama is rooting for his muslim brothers. He will be there praying with them and bowing before them when the smoke clears.

That’s the way it looks to me too.
An hour ago Fox News was awaiting 2 press conferences from the Thugocracy, and both were canceled. Evidently they’ve been replaced by “Tweets”! OMG. America is screwed until 2013.

Egypt has blocked internet and cell phones. How can anyone, liberal, conservative, socialist, etc be in favor of this happening in this country.

As I pointed out on another thread.

Zer0 wants 'the kill switch' to the internet. IMO the exact same reason, to be able to stifle dissent if/when the time comes.

Unserious men, nay—children—are in control of the White House. That is the only logical conclusion.

I saw part of Hitlery’s robotic, moronic response. The fact is: she and Hussein are clueless boobs. The 3:00 am wake up call came in at about noon today, and neither is prepared.

Gates? Ha. He has no clue either.

And Hussein’s rubber stamp NSC won’t have any meaningful input either. Time to punt: they’ll call Valerie Jarrett and that woman they have overriding Hitlery at the United Nations....I forget her name....Oh, and look for a photo op Hussein will have with John Kerry and Carl Levine—you know, to show he is “on top of the situation.”

A photo-op presidency while the world burns.

Maybe obama was figuring the people of Egypt could read his response on Twitter. Apparently he didn’t get the word that the Egyptian government had shut down all communications. I can only assume that includes twitter.

Lots of other Texas Universities make fun of Aggies and say they’re dumb. Gates doesn’t help much.

Sadly, the world is burning. And it’s more like World War I than World War II. No real leaders to see this through...

Oh for God’s sake.

Is it a snow day in DC? Maybe Malia and Natasha are having a “Go to work with Daddy day.” Responding to a potentially explosive Middle East Crisis on Twitter is not the act of a working brain cell.
