"The morals of America are not being reflected in their politics toward Egypt," said Sharif Hegazy, 37, who manages the Cairo office of a U.S. company he preferred not to name. "Because of its past support for [deposed President Hosni] Mubarak, America has always been seen asa veiled enemy. Now they are just waiting to see which side will win. That's not ethical.

Having no spine or foreign policy except to wait and see might work for Greenland, but not for the United States. Now Obama has pissed off both sides. That takes real talent.

Reality hits the manure truck... remember the blarney in the vid below?

The scary thing is he probably believed it... for he said it early in the Socialist of Amerika Party's primaries in 2007!

Has nothing what so ever to do with Obama. Egyptians have "hated" America long before Obama... hell even Reagan.. and the radical Islamist hate the US even more because of Israel.

I suggest you listen to the youtube clip and try again... you're making claims that have little to do with the thrust of the post.

We had four years of foreign policy incompetency with Obama/Clinton. Now we'll get four years of foreign policy incompetency with Obama/Kerry.
Kerry has already shown he agrees with Clintons view of "what difference does it make" as he went for a boat ride while Egypt was falling apart.

As long as nobody points a finger at Obama, it's all good with the idiot class.

So, Obama supporting the MB has nothing to do with it?

You didn't watch the clip, made your initial post and ended up looking the fool. Now you're trying a deflect. So... back we go to the thrust of the thread.

Obama made some moronic claims (as noted in the youtube bit)... on par with the Beauty Pageant line "World Peace". They looked absolutely foolish in 2007 to anyone with half a brain, and in light of recent events... they look idiotic.

Where is all this Obama magic? With unconditional (moronic) talks with Iran... North Korea? Where is all this love from Muslims towards Amerika?

Obama's utopian world got t-boned by reality traveling at the speed of light.

Pete... the best thing you can do is admit... yep... Obama's utopian world got smashed by reality.

Poor, poor Obama. Just because he's president, people actually expected to actually take some responsibility.

Why do you hold Obama to such a low standard?

And why dont you and your right wing friends take some responsibility for the last 40 years of American foreign policy? Why dont you and your right wing friends take responsibility for putting Hamas in power, for letting Iran gain more and more power around the world, and letting Morsi in power in the first place by under mining Mubarak with all this bull**** Bush doctrine and spreading democracy in the Arab world?

no they look optimistic, which at the time was a hope of not only him but everyone around the world. Bush had ruined so much and he was seen and saw himself as the fixer. He has done some, but also continued lots of Bush policies, which disappointed a lot of people.

Where is all this Obama magic? With unconditional (moronic) talks with Iran... North Korea? Where is all this love from Muslims towards Amerika?

Again considering the cluster**** that Bush left him with... then he needed to be freaking Harry Potter to fix it all.

Obama's utopian world got t-boned by reality traveling at the speed of light.

Yes, and it had a lot of help from the GOP. Not being able to get rid of GITMO because of GOP interference.

Pete... the best thing you can do is admit... yep... Obama's utopian world got smashed by reality.

Never ever denied it did not.. that is you that are trying to gloat over something... of which your side had a large portion of blame in torpedoing but also creating.

When Obama was running for pres there was a feeling in this country he was pro Islam, that feeling is spreading around the world.

Are you anti-Islam?

I don't really understand what else we should be doing.

Bush is still president? Really? I didn't get the memo?

It's never Obama's fault. I'm embarrassed for the Libbos, seeing how they defend him. I mean, how can someone have any self respect, when their defense of Obama is that he's incompetent?

No. You guys just tend to go stupid and try to attach everything to him.

Right! It's not like he's The President, or anything. How foolish to think that The President take responsibility for what happens on his watch. That's totally asinine to think that.

This is from your source,

Consider President Eisenhower. In 1953, the year before the Brotherhood was outlawed by Nasser, a covert US propaganda program headed by the US Information Agency brought over three dozen Islamic scholars and civic leaders mostly from Muslim countries for what officially was an academic conference at Princeton University. The real reason behind the meeting was an effort to impress the visitors with America’s spiritual and moral strength, since it was thought that they could influence Muslims’ popular opinion better than their ossified rulers. The ultimate goal was to promote an anti-Communist agenda in these newly independent countries, many of which had Muslim majorities.

You had to go back nearly 70s years, to find a way to defend Obama? That's very telling.

Ya know, there was a company of Muslims that served in the Confederate Army. Does that that make The Confederates supporters of Islamofacism, too?
