bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Hussein doesn’t know squat about what is going on.

All he knows about the Egyptian situation can fit in a very small thimble.

I've never seen on of zer0’s speeches, and I don't intend to start now.

I'll hear the truth about it all the same way I always have.

By reading what Freepers have to say about it.

Rush said the speech is being delayed because it’s taken them a little longer than they thought to build the pyramid backdrop. Heh.

The Jerusalem Post is optimistic:

They tend not to stick around on this marble much longer after losing power.

Except maybe Noriega....is he still languishing in a Miami prison?

Well he owns it now. I do hope they form a pro american free democracy and all is Unicorns and Rainbows. However. Socialists intentions always cause the opposite of the desired outcome. I imagine he will try to bail out Egypt now with our money through the IMF.

We're going to hear how he single handily saved the Egyptian people..... and the entire world - again. Then he'll move on to how much we should love and adore him for it.

No thanks. I've heard that same type speech for two years already. I don't need to hear it again.

“Obama learns of Mubarak resignation by watching TV in Oval Office...” (Drudge headline)

Obama and Co., plus our clueless State Department and Intelligence agencies will likely learn the same way of the next radical Islamist attack on America or any other world disaster. They are clueless and aren’t improving through learning from mistakes. If we don’t vote out Obama and some more Democrat senators in 11/2012, we are doomed.

O: Let me be perfectly clear! This happened because of me. I am here, they are over there. But it’s absolutely true that I made it happen. Look how the Egyptians are praising me and Allah, in that exact order, me first, Allah second.

You forgot to add that Mobark said last night that he so loves Egypt and the children and no amount of money or outside influence will make him leave. Obama then called Mobarry on his blackberry and offered him compensation for all of the oil money he will lose and he got on his jet and moved to beverly dubai or a yacht in the middle of no where.

It was highly reported Obama and Clinton incited this. Obama is happy as a clam his brothers mooslum will grab the reins but he will try to act presidential because ole Daley wrote the speech on the teleprompter.

LIVE on Fox all the crowds are suddenly SO NICE and not attacking. The radicals were all called to the Obama tent to rest so the normal people can make it look all cushy.

An Egyptian protester/celebrator just being interviewed on FNC said that he wants freedom "like they have in Iraq".

I thought that was an interesting comment.
