Mubarak 1, Obama 0 (CIA to Obama: Mubarak Would Resign Today)
http://blogs.dailymail.com/donsurber/archives/29332 | February 10, 2011 | Don Surber

So our CIA told President Obama that Hosni Mubarak would resign today.

From Rush Limbaugh: Obama went to Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan, and said: “I just want to say that we are following today’s events in Egypt very closely. We’ll have more to say as this plays out. But what is absolutely clear is that we are witnessing history unfold. The moment of transformation is taking place because the people of Egypt are calling for change.

“They’ve turned out in extraordinary numbers representing all ages and all walks of life. But it’s young people who’ve been at the forefront — new generation, your generation, who want their voices to be heard. So going forward, we want those young people and we want all Egyptians to know America will continue to do everything that we can to support an orderly and genuine transition to democracy in Egypt.

“As we watch what’s taking place, we’re also reminded that we live in an interconnected world. What happens across the globe has an impact on each and every one of us.”

Except, Mubarak did not resign.

In fact, Mubarak told the people protesting at Tahrir Square in Cairo, go home. I told you I am not leaving until after the September elections, and I am not.

Good for him. Good for us.

From the Washington Post:

CAIRO – Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, defiantly rejecting opposition demands that he leave power immediately, vowed late Thursday that he would follow through with his plans to transfer authority to an elected government after his term ends in September and would continue efforts to amend Egypt’s constitution in the meantime.

I'm ashamed of the humiliation Obama has engendered upon us all, the USA.

there are no heroes here but I am kinda pulling for Mubarak, he is about the only leader in this screwed up cast of characters

As we have seen in the past 2 years- anything obama wants BAD (like installing el baroody with the support of a rent-a-mob rounded up via twitter) - is BAD for America

If we are lucky, the Saudi King will be so PO'd at 0bama that he will drive up the price of oil to $200.00 per barrel and blame it on the 'bamster. If so we might 0bama's 'day of departure' before the next election.

If "Smart Diplomacy" were of any value, the State Dept. should'a known what was about to happen.

Obviously Mu-Barack doesn't trust H! or Barack.

You've gotta give Mubarak credit for standing up to 0bama and the USA...although thats a back door slap at how much our country has fallen under the 'bamster.

If intelligence is wrong then the president is a liar. Obama lied to the American people, he played on our fears.

So Obama now gets to use the old Bush line of “I relied on the intelligence I was given”. So, how does that feel, Mr. President?

We just need Milli Vanilli to get back together so we can sing “Blame it on Hussein”. And yes, I know one of them is dead. The surviving one would be good enough

Mubarak was ready to walk away, until Obama and his goons started to push.

Obama FAILED.

BO Plenty’s speech is a look at what he wants to accomplish in the USA: a mass uprising by people of color, drug addicts, homeless alcoholics, and all college students who cannot think for themselves. The objective is to destroy all white people and “white institutions” to include the financial, military, Christianity, and old people on Social Security.

The clock is ticking on the survival of the USA as we have known it.

Mubarak wouldn’t “stand up” to the US unless he had financial and political cover from the Saudis and other oil sheikhs, and probably Israel and Jordan, too

I think Rodham-Obama’s grasp of middle east politics is about as shallow as their grasp of everything else, political

Wasn’t a fair fight.

So should be we all. The sad fact is, Mubarak has a more valid sense of democratic self government than does the Alien Usurper, who continues to confuse democracy with mob rule.

Zero, other than in hindsight.

BTW, Much of the media's “He's resigning” came from (stupid) US sources.

The big message here is how poorly the Obama administration handled this. Some bottom lines:

1: Our best Arab ally in SWA knows Obama will screw him as soon as possible.
2: Israel knows Obama will screw them as soon as possible
3: Russian, Chinese and French diplomats are saying “Look what happens to America's allies at every cocktail party.
4: Radical Islamic groups, especially the ones that try to proclaim they are really “Moderate,” know that they either have Obama and the American media fooled, or that Obama and the American media are complicit in their plans to ruin ME and USA.

All in all, it's a disaster that will get MUCH worse.

Even if protesters go home tomorrow, this will have a long term very negative impact for US.

It will take months if not years to fully comprehend how bad this is for us... thank you Mr. Obama!
