Skip to comments.Obama sharply criticizes Egyptian govt's move

WASHINGTON Bristling with impatience, President Barack Obama on Thursday openly and sharply questioned whether Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's pledge to shift power to his vice president is an "immediate, meaningful or sufficient" sign of reform for a country in upheaval.
Without naming Mubarak, Obama issued a written statement that criticized the leader for not offering clarity to his people or a concrete path to democracy. He called on Egyptian government leaders to do so, declaring: "They have not yet seized that opportunity."

I sharply question WTF Obama’s doing sticking his nose into Egyptian affairs when he needs to get to work putting America to work.

Norm, I think Obama has just had his Bay of Pigs.
Mubarak has given the 0 the bird or thumbs-up.
“Furious Egyptian demonstrators vowed to launch their most spectacular protest yet in Cairo on Friday”
You mean, “spectacular” as in fire, people screaming, streets filled with blood, etc?
Obama fanned the flames and got the radicals even more radical and now all hell is going to break lose throughout Egypt.
No variation of “sharp” belongs in a sentence with “Obama” in it.
I’m expecting Obama to crash Prince William’s wedding and make a speech about how Prince Harry deserves to be king.
Impatient, Obama sharply questions Mubarak pledge
this is the new headline at that link. Impatient added. Hmmpt.
I wonder. Gingrich on Hannity tonight said the administration afterward will simply ignore what happened and go off and make speeches on other subjects.
He said that this is the strategy employed after North Korea and Iran. And thinking it over, I guess that's exactly what happened.
FUBO. Who cares what you think?
probably change the title a few times at this rate.. Thanks!
Hey, just like he criticized the Iran government during the uprising - right?

So, Egypt isn’t sovereign after all. Paper released an ocean away, written by person(s) unknown, tell the country what to do.
On the Internet, no less.
‘Spose if we get to protestin’ outside the White House it someone like Hu will call Obama up and tell him to get out?
Do you know what Obama needs for moments like this?
He needs some scary looking teleprompters, as he pronounces from on high.
"Like the first letter of his name, Obama is about as sharp as a bowling ball."
“Where are the skinny people ?”
Looks like the fatties ate them......
Psst...college kids...you don’t have a future; thanks to this pencil-necked dweeb. WTF, right?
Wow, now his thin-skinedness is out there on the world stage for all to see. What a mess he is making.
RESIGN Barack Obama.
Zer0 doubles down.
Response from Egypt: Blow me
Well, how can you have a Caliphate if the Caliph is not obeyed?
Doesn't Mubarak understand the meaning of Islam? It means SUBMIT TO YOUR MASTER.
No variation of sharp belongs in a sentence with Obama in it
I always say “sharp as a marble”
“Bristling” cracks me up. We are, we aren’t, go, stay. wait.
Now he’s “bristling”.
Where were these hog-sized nuts when you could have knocked Ahmedinejad off his feet, American “leader”?
According to CONSERVATIVE American commentators on FOX NEWS, the protesters - at this point - are NOT Islamic fanatics, and the Muslim Brotherhood does NOT have the support needed to take this revolution over. AT THIS POINT it is a spontaneous secularist movement of people tired of a tyrant who has sucked their country dry of money and brutalized them to the extent that most of them have to live on $3.00 a day, and subject to control by NAZI like storm troopers.
The BEST scenario here is for the Egyptian Military to take over, kick Mubarak out, and set up a transitional Junta style Government until Mubarak’s term ends in September, allowing secularist opposition groups to coalesce and present a strong slate of candidates.
IF the Egyptian Military FIRES on their own people and backs Mubarak, THAT will provide the spark to allow the Islamic Radicals to take over and engineer Mubarak’s over throw. The Islamists WANT the Military to do this and they WANT Mubarak to remain in power as a visible target of public hate.
Obama’s statements and those of his administration on this subject have been as inconsistent and ridiculous as Mubarak’s rambling nonsensical speech.
U.S. Officials who were responsible for not providing information on this situation earlier or refused to take behind the scenes action to lever that bastard Mubarak out of office, should be called to account by the American public.
The major difference is that China and Russia don't have leaders who need to stroke their own egos in public by making multiple statements, all with a different message, on the same Egyptian scenario.
The “what if” game is often played on FR, but had W. Bush bungled this situation this poorly, and had his Intel department testified that the Muslim Brotherhood was a “secular” organization, there would be a movement from the Democrats to pressure Bush to resign.
This Egyptian leadership crisis is an absolute disaster for Obama, but more so for the United States. We've become a secondary ‘power’.
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Narcissist in Chief is Spreading his rage at being rebuked.
If anyone doubts that the Islamist will destroy all the treasures of Egypt don’t. If the Army joins the rage infected expect destruction of all the treasures.
Anything that produces an insight into the evolution of cultures BEFORE Mo, has to be obliterated. Christians, Jews,
the birth place of Christ. The disease of the Islamist is all incompassing.
Is that George McFly in Back to the Furture?
Look who's talking!
Especially after our cowardly “community organizer” so quietly tip-toed around the Iranian patriots’ fight for freedom.
Zero would be wise to worry about his own mess.
That punk Obama just got the middle finger from ol’ Hosni Mubarek
WW III would serve as a pretty effective distraction.
He was rebuked all right, then the Foreign minister said this:
Egypt Uprising - Foreign Minister Abu Al-Gheit Slams U.S. Administration for Interfering in Egypts Affairs:
“The question is not whether or not the latest American position pleases me. Ultimately, they have realized the need to conduct these major transformations gradually and on the basis of a roadmap with clear goals, guarantees, and phases. They were using the word ‘now.’ They said: You must do it now! But they changed their position...
When someone says to me ‘now,’ ‘immediately,’ and whatever, I say to him: ‘Boy, go play somewhere else.’ We will do everything according to the interests of our people and country.”
“.... It got to the point that whoever wants to gain points in his own country, and to give a show back home that he is a progressive-leftist-democratic-whatever, ....”
(I posted this on another thread as well, just didn’t want you all to miss it).
Nothing, absolutely nothing (saracsm).
tThe “leadership” nobama presents to us is a farce. nobama is the destroyer. he knows what he hates: America, Freedom, Americans. Think. nobama is a hate crime.
Wee-weed up, acting stupidly.
Another great find. Good one.
Obongo’s speeches about the Egyptian situation have been sickening. What a vacuous little turd. I’m driving and I lunge for the radio to change the station
What a moron.
