Obama challenges Mubarak: Consider your legacy (The same legacy Obama already ruined)

Embracing an Egyptian future without Hosni Mubarak, President Barack Obama on Friday pressed the embattled leader to consider his legacy and exit office in a way that would give his country the best chance for peace and democracy. Obama tried to rally world pressure on Mubarak to make "the right decision" but did not call for his immediate resignation.

"I believe that President Mubarak cares about his country. He is proud, but he's also a patriot," Obama said as Cairo remained a center of protest and upheaval.

The U.S. president said he had urged Mubarak to listen to those in his government and the pleading voices of his people, and decide if he's willing to accept a serious transition out of power.

Obama, limited in his leverage to control events, appeared to adjust his tactics in making brief comments to reporters. Instead of just outlining Egyptian steps to halt the street violence and move toward a freer government, Obama openly played to Mubarak's pride and reputation.

The irony is too rich. His conceit would never allow him to see it however.

I think we should show it to him!

It wouldn’t take long to use our social networks to have at least a million conservatives demonstrating for the Leftists to leave office. Heaven knows, they have done everything in the book to provoke us.

Yesterday Obama wwas demandin gMubarak leave office forthwith.

Today obama backed down and allowed his rhetoric to be allowing Mubarik a peaceful transition? Buahahahahahahaha1

The Obama’s created “revolution for democracy” crisis in Cairo has....FAILED.

Mubarak and Obama were face to face......Obama BLINKED.

And it was Obama created:

The MSM does not report the facts, you have to dig, and here they are:

First the telegraph of London reports the Egyptian revolutionary radicals at conferences in the USA:

There is no democracy movement in Cairo, that case has not been made which is why Obama is moving so quickly, and is so desperate.. It has been engineered by Obama.

Note the complete silence from Europe’s leaders on Mubarak stepping down. It is deafening. Obamas purpose is two fold:

1) Put Europes Oil supply at the ransom of An Islamofascist Regime ( The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in 1928, and were allies of the Nazis) through control of the Suez Canal.

2) Establish a Southern Invasion route into Israel from the Sinai.Obama and China will arm the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypts problems are economic. Instead of an injection of Capital for the Egyptian economy to help with high unemployment,and a few dozen boatloads of Saudi bread,Obama has arranged for a popular revolution so called, involving 250,000 people out of 8 milliom,less than .3% of Egypts population, AND is tryiing to create a power vacuum for the Muslm Brotherhood, all covered by the US media who are in Egypt for one purpose, to carry Obama’s water. Its all fabricated.

Mubarak is playing Obama and his little revolution like a fish. All Obama can do is stamp his foot in Washington and make noise. If he sends in the US Marines to quell violence brought on by his own Obama created revolutionaries, it will be a horrible slaughter on the US military, and Obama wins again, by further weakening and demoralizing the US military.

How do we stop Obama? GET THE TRUTH OUT. Support Mubarak.
And revile Obamas neocolonial adventurusm in Egypt, calculated to distract from the issues at home, such as Death Care Repeal, and Obamas failing popularity.

Mubarak should do what I do when I see or hear Obama endlessly on the raido or TV first I scream then I turn it off. The sound or sight of Obama makes me ill and angry. And to think his hands are all over this he is such a liar and a cheat

When are we having our “Day of Anger” to call for Barack to step down?

Soros and his useful idiots get to have theirs first, instigate some chaos as a pretense for "Change" under the guise of Homeland Security.

I wonder if anybody abroad still listens to what Obama is saying. Definitely no one in the Middle East and highly unlikely anyone in Europe.

He should be confined in Pelosi or Reid’s house to be fair; not in our House.

Give Hosni a break!

He needs another 24 hours to be sure that the extra 2000 pounds of gold can be stored in the hold of his gitaway.

2000lbs = $38+ million.

So? If I was being run out by some other country’s president and the Muslim Brotherhood, I would also be stocking up for the long haul.
