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.
