.WASHINGTON Stepping up pressure on a stalwart but flawed Middle East ally, President Barack Obama said he personally told Egypt's Hosni Mubarak Friday night to take "concrete steps" to expand rights inside the Arab nation and refrain from violence against protesters flooding the streets of Cairo and other cities. The White House suggested U.S. aid could be at stake.

The big eared rookie is in way over his pay grade.
I think the translation would have been more accurately rendered as “place your feet in the concrete”.
Obama needs to take some long “concrete steps” off a short pier.
LOL... I was just thinking, “Is that the same thing as ‘concrete shoes’?”
WTF is a concrete step? is that a Chicago mafia thing?
The media must’ve wanted him to pose for something.
Well, one Jimmy Hoffa theory holds that he is wearing concrete shoes somewhere in Lake Michigan.
“Hey Hosni ole buddy, kiss your butt goodbye. When the goin gets tough, I’m outta here. When’s tee time?’
and his gay prade too.
Just who is Obama speaking for anyways?
I forget, did 0 say anything to the thugs in Iran when they were cracking down? Didn’t 0 also back the communist former president in Honduras, in tandem with his socialist buddies in Nicaragua, Cuba and Venezuela.
On top of that, we have that progressive Gates forcing gay acceptance to the military. When are the republicans going to start demanding answers on the military and this reckless foreign policy?
“The big eared rookie is in way over his pay grade.”
NONE of these yahoos get it!! Did you hear Hillary’s dumb speech/statements about how “peaceful” protesters must be respected and their right to “freedom of assembly”???
Charles Krauthammer on Bret’s panel talking about how there are many “secular elements who want democracy” who “shouldn’t be crushed” or similar drivel (I’m paraphrasing both the above people, somewhat). And silly Nina on that same panel talking about what a wonderful example of how social networking can be used for freedom!!!
God help us.
Bolton gets it. Brigitte Gabriel (up against Muslim president of “Americans Together” on Hannity) gets it. But our “leaders”, the media, the supposed intellectuals? Not even.
Those “concrete steps” sure as hell beat those wooden steps up to the gallows, right Barry? Dem Muzzies love hanging people when they’re not stoning them to death.
I guess means there will be need for concern about Obama calling out the police and military when Americans hit the streets to run him out of office and save the country from ruin.
Watch the MSM! Zer0 will get total credit for the uprisings of the Arabs, based on his Cairo speech!
But, only if it comes out ok. Hardliner Condi and Bush will be villified, regardless of the outcome!
Mubarak is going to tell Obama to eff off, and run to the Russians now standing by.
Can't say as I blame Mubarak much.Who would want Obama idjit in a strategic mix.Obama has no intelligence, only ideology. Of course that led to genocide ( 15,000 civilian deaths)in Kenya when Obama did the same kooky liberal fascist crap there in 2006/2007 with Odinga's Orange Party.Yeah, Obama was a great help then wasn't he?Same this time, liberal fascist ideology Uber Alles.Obie doesn't give a sweet eff about Egyptian's themseleves.We are witnessing how leftists and their cowardice manifest in the modern era, and the world already is judging them as psychopomps, lacking in intelligence and humanity.
America has foisted a curse upon the world.Its name is Obama.
Our allies now abandon us. In the world,we will stand alone. America will have a huge butchers bill to pay even to minimally defend its interests around the world.And it will be .......Bush's fault? We need rid of Obama ASAP.
The first concrete step should be rounding up all the mossies possible and shooting them.
There’s an awful lot of cynicism here, but the President has several tools at his disposal. He could send some community organizers to to assist Mubarak in organizing free and fair elections. How about statining Black Panthers with billy clubs outside of Cairo polling places.
SEIU could help with crowd control.
Mubarak Hussein Obama
The big eared rookie is in way over his gay pride.
Sodom Hussein Obama
Word analogies are fun!
Here are some nice ones.
Exactly what it sounds like. The final nail for the Shah was when carter wouldn’t let him in the US for cancer treatments. Then, the government fell. Looks like we are on the same glide path. Thank you carter for all of our problems in that part of the world.
He could send jimmy carter...
aaaah! The nuclear option. But when it comes to diplomacy, Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like Charlie Sheen in a tittie bar.
