Biden Praises Arab Spring on Same Day Egypt Dissolves Its Parliament

Vice President Joe Biden, speaking at a high school commencement ceremony in Virginia on Thursday, called the Arab Spring a “democratic movement”--on the same day that the Egyptian high court nullified the Islamist majority parliament and the Egyptian military assumed control of the legislature.

“The democratic movement that swept across the Middle East, the so called Arab Spring, began when a lowly fruit vendor set himself ablaze to protest a corrupt government, igniting a confrontation magnified by social media that literally set off a revolution that was waiting to happen for well over 200 years,” Biden said in his speech at Tallwood High School in Virginia Beach, Va.

In Cairo on Thursday, the Egyptian high court determined that the regulatory laws for parliamentary elections are invalid, meaning by law the current parliament is nullified and obligated to dissolve.

According to the Congressional Research Service (CRS), the Egyptian parliament was dominated by Islamists.

"On January 23, the People’s Assembly held its inaugural session following what many international observers have deemed to be a somewhat successful, though not perfect, election for the lower house of parliament known as the People’s Assembly," the CRS reported.

The fact that the election of MB Islamists was a fraud and Mubarak’s cohorts are back in control (temporarily) is the lesser of two evils but Biden is still naive as always for not updating his crusty, outdated, inaccurate notes. lol

Slow Joe probably plagiarized the whole thing anyway. He can blame the guy he stole it from.

Such impeccable timing. Just when the two wolves and the sheep were about to vote on what’s for dinner. And they would have burnt a Coptic church afterwards to celebrate.

How can anyone admit they voted for this guy? He’s the dumbest person to ever hold office. He gives Cynthia McKinney a run for the money.

Timing,...timing...This could only be a even better epitomy of Slow Joe if he had plagerized the speech from some Mullah.

Don’t forget Patty Murray. I thought she was the benchmark for dumb politician.

Biden has to be quantified in Murray Units.

“It’s all in the timing” for Joe Biden.
This is one stopped clock that somehow is not right even
twice a day.
