With the Middle East now more hostile to U.S. interests than ever, the "Arab Spring" has become a major political liability for the president. Try as he may, he can't distance himself from it.
Betraying his frustration with Cairo's Muslim Brotherhood, which egged on U.S. embassy rioters, President Obama said, "I don't think we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy."
But in a May 2011 speech at the State Department, Obama essentially took credit for Islamists' rise to power as part of his broader Mideast strategy to help free them from the "repression" of despots, while ending their "suspicion" and "mistrust" of America from the war on terror.
"That's why, two years ago in Cairo," the president expounded, "I began our engagement based upon mutual interests and mutual respect."
The main beneficiary of his "engagement" was the radical Muslim Brotherhood, which has called for jihad against America and the destruction of Israel. The main loser was steady U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak.

Didn’t you hear? Somebody has apparently paid 30,000 Libyans to hit the streets with protests declaiming the murder of their dear US HomoAmbassador.....just touching....they actually loved him!!!!.....
Most likely OBAMA paid pro-US protestors so he wouldn’t look so AWFUL.....with OUR money, of course!!
I would like to see us feed them to these dogs.
Mideast? wht’s that? Nobody is talking about the mideast!The important thing is Romney’s Tax returns and he confirmed that by giving on that release. And it doesn’t matter that there is nothing in them, There will be loud and high indignation at every item. What the voters will hear is not the substance of the charges but the indignation in which they are expressed. I have heard that caviling from people who should know better.
BUSH DID IT.
It might be interesting to see where this goes - might turn out to be a counter revolutin to "restore" a semblance of what they had before the great zero "saved" them.
IOW, his plan is going perfectly.
What Obama did was tell us he fixed it with Obama super glue... but in realty it was just spit...
He owns it because he sold himself and the American people a bill of goods and a vicious lie...
