I wish every RINO and every Democrat in the House and in the Senate (and perhaps including our White House) would visit Egypt, Libya, and every other hellhole that has been through the “Arab Spring” that they celebrate. Security? What could go wrong now that they have the government selected by the violent mobs we are supporting and arming with our tax dollars and with the left’s blessing.

It’s revenge.

They were the ones who told him to go along with the Arab Spring Muslim Brotherhood takeover.

That blew up in his face, so now he say’s “you fix it”.

We can only hope that McCain gets lost on a pyramids trip and Linda falls in love with a hook nosed guy on a camel.

BO is looking for cover and someone to blame for his failed foreign policy practices.

Why not ask the former secs of state Clinton and Powell to go without portfolio.

If anything happens, Obama of Arabia can zoom over and take charge of the mission to get them back.

Perhaps the Obama's could change their vacation plans for next month.

Cairo is lovely this time of year, and he could reenact his FIRST speech after becoming president.

ATTENTION EGYPTIAN MILITARY:

These men do not represent those of us who are Patriots. You have our permission to ridicule them and to wave smelly shoes in their faces. Do not let your shoes come in contact with them... they are unclean. Give all three a strongly worded letter... obama likes that sort of thing and then point out how obama has destroyed Peace in Egypt, wrecked Libya and is destroying Syria. Present him with a bill for damages.

Ok NSA... boys I’m joking son... I say I’m joking! Well not completely... ok I am joking... mostly...
