Skip to comments.Egypt crisis: Mohammed Mursi says new powers 'temporary' (Yeah right!)
Posted on 11/25/2012 9:54:10 AM PST by tobyhill
The office of Egyptian President Mohammed Mursi has defended a decree giving him sweeping new powers, saying it is temporary and not intended to concentrate power in his hands.
The decree was intended to prevent democratically elected bodies from being undermined, the statement said.
Mr Mursi was committed to finding "common ground" with other parties.

I’ll give the guy a week. I’m sure they have a Marcy Park in Egypt.
Not sure he would have taken that step if he didn’t think he had the Army in check.
We’ll soon have five new Irans...? Don’t forget the way Obama wanted us all to know how HE inspired all this.
Didn't Castro promise this?
Thats what Barry will say when he declares martial law and tried to confiscate guns. Good luck with that Barkey.
Hitler also said, “Just give me four years.”
Pharaoh Morsi is just showing Obama how easy it is to assert power almost unchecked, and do it all in the name of the Muslim Brotherhood.
The power is there, it is only necessary to have enough cojones to seize it and put it to personal use.
All in the name of defending the “correct” course of action, of course. After all, there is a legacy to preserve.
You're half-right, LOL. Egypt doesn't have a Marcy Park, but soon they may have a Mursi Park with a new grave marker.
The average American doesn't know about what Obama did in Benghazi, fast and furious, Solyndra, Passing the dream act, with an executive order, ACTA, plotting with the UN to give the UN power to regulate our guns and internet, and many other traitorous dictatorial acts. And this is with many conservative sites, talk radio etc reporting on it.
“When the Obama Communist does this in the U.S.”.....
Hey, he has, in effect, ALREADY done this in the US!
Consider the striking parallel that Obama and Mursi both
“won” their elections by a comparable percentage.
Mursi is Obama on SuperEgyptian Steroids in the same way
Obama is Carter on Steroids.
Mursi is Obama’s surrogate in the Middle East, head of the
most populated country there, and is merely taking Obama’s lead in decreeing his new expanded powers, and his hostility towards input and ideas from any perceived “opposition”.
There is NO practical difference, except the crushing irony
that we have to witness a new and real Arab Spring re-assert itself as it was slowly being crushed into oblivion but their “NEW” dictator. We have to watch them in admiration,
and a profound disappointment as we realize that Obama
& Co. are getting a second chance to underwrite a real Arab Spring, and will find a way NOT to take that chance.
Obama is silent.... Because he needs Morsi to continue to get weapons and arms to Hamas in Gaza...
Morsi as the new Pharaoh can do what he needs to do without dissent from the people in Egypt who actually want to continue to have peace With Israel...
Obama plan is to surround israel with MB and force a peace on them....
IIRC, they said they weren’t going to run a candidate in the election, too.
I don’t remember Castro promising that but I was way too young at the beginning of his rule to know what was what.
I remember him saying to a questioner (maybe Jack Paar, of all people!) that NO NO NO! he wasn’t a Communist he was
But this “it’s only temporary” ploy is used all the time in the political/bureaucratic realm. When the Port Authority came into being after the construction of the George Washington Bridge here in NY/NJ it too was only supposed to be a temporary agency and the very modest tolls were they said only needed to pay off the construction of the Bridge.
They’ve managed to assert their autonomy , shed their principles, and entrench their bureaucracy over a period of decades so that they have their own police force and tolls
are now a stunning FOURTEEN DOLLARS to cross their little
A few learned about his war on coal, using various branches of the government to harass coal miners, truckers, etc. Those that knew got out and voted in Virginia's coal counties (e.g. Tazewell). But even with that, they got less turnout there than in 80% black Petersburg VA. The moochers seem to know what they are getting, but not many of the victims.
He thought he did but he doesn’t as the ongoing attacks on the Muslim Brotherhood continue unabated. Guess who the rioters really are?
Like a temporary tax!???
(There's no such thing as a temporary tax!)
It’s truly his intent. He is only being a pharaoh long enough to get the $4.8 Billion from th IMF. Honest Injun. How else is he supposed to get that IMF to commit?
