'He just lit the final fuse' (Dem Rep. Gary Ackerman)
MSNBC ^ | Feb. 10, 2011

Posted on 02/10/2011 2:06:36 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-N.Y., chairman of the Foreign Affairs subcommittee on the Middle East and South Asia, called Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's address "a sadistic tease" and predicted that demonstrations could turn violent.

"He just lit the final fuse," Ackerman said in an interview on MSNBC TV. "And now I think the situation is going to verge on the explosive over the next 24 hours."

I think MSNBC meant: “Gary Ackerman, D-NY and FORMER chairman of the foreign relations committee...”. They just can’t give it up.

Considering how accurate the administration and Intelligence agencies have been regarding Egypt I would suggest that the Congressman has as much credibility on the subject as my 90 year old Aunt.

Obama will make Mubarak the USA’s enemy. It will give Obama a “community organizer’s moment” which he will enjoy. He can grandstand about promoting democracy. The MSM will be able to promote this simple narrative. Obama believes it will further burnish his 3rd world Muslim credentials. He won’t really care who takes over in Egypt.

There is nothing in the world more testy and dangerous than a majority member now finding himself moved to the minority. They have jaws that can excert more pressure than a Great White.

I never thought I would say this but Hilary seems to be the only one Dem with any brains, unless I’ve missed something she said. This is a no win situation and idiots like Ackerman are not going to warm up whoever comes out on top in Egypt. A BLANK teleprompter is what is needed at this moment.

If Barak had ANY political acumen at all, or if he had not insisted on surrounding himself with sycophantic worshipers, he would have seen this coming and tried to get Mubarak to defuse the situation by announcing a more democratic form of government.

Obama will make Mubarak the USA’s enemy.

What irony...as he's already made Israel the USA's enemy. He's uniting the world in hatred of us (or at least in hatred of him).

Actually, with those comments, I think Ackerman is the one lighting the final fuse.

Nothing incendiary about that comment.
Doubt it'll give anyone any ideas ...

If a Democrat calls something a "final fuse", and it isn't, then by gawd they'll make it the final fuse.

“I never thought I would say this but Hilary seems to be the only one Dem with any brains...”

What has she ever done to convince you of that. She’s an old ugly Stalinist with a gigantic sized ego.

I’m no fan of Mubarak but shouldn’t the administration be supporting an orderly transition? Their message has been all over the map. This is what we get when we have a cardboard president. Posers don’t make good presidents.

I didn't say that, dude. I'd never ascribe anything but delusional blind ambition to the H-Rod. That being said, by comparison to everyone else in the coup, she's the only one that isn't a moron crackhead Marxist. She's just a moron Marxist.

And I thought State couldn't fall any further than Albright. That sure shows me.

ROFLMAO!

And yeah-I guess the 'crackhead' part doesn't fit, a stretch too far as it were...but mostly, I love the ascription (not sure that is a word) to 'delusional blind ambition' and, lol, 'H-Rod'. What a hoot.

It's relative but unless I missed something, she has been smart enough to keep her mouth closed. Give credit where it is due, again, unless I missed something she said.

Perhaps someone could send Mubarak a few rolls so he'll get the message.

US leftists are supporting a Muslim Brotherhood takeover so fervently you’d think they’re getting discounted memberships.

"He just lit the final fuse," Ackerman said in an interview on MSNBC TV. "And now I think the situation is going to verge on the explosive over the next 24 hours."

That's vitriolic. If anything happens in Egypt now, it will be Ackerman's fault for using inciteful rhetoric.

I wish I could do it the GS way ... take every position and zap the bad ones before the open...

I’d probably short the airlines (leap puts) ... they’ll take a hit with reduced loadings and higher costs...
