While Cairo Burns, Obama Parties


#1

The Washington A-List was out in force Saturday night at the farewell party for senior adviser David Axelrod, with a roster of guests featuring Cabinet secretaries, big shot journos and – President Obama.
As revolution threatened to sweep Egypt and possibly other allies – with the horrifying prospect of Islamism replacing reliable friends – the president was on view partying with the IN crowd.

The skepticism beyond the Beltway about whether Washington is just one big Love-In certainly gets fed by the sight – as conveyed by the press pool report – of reporters like ABC’s Jake Tapper, NBC’s Chuck Todd, National Journal’s Major Garrett, and John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times emerging from a bash with the president that was held to toast his chief political fixer and leading spinmeisterdd, National Journal’s Major Garrett, and John Harwood of CNBC and the New York Times emerging from a bash with the president that was held to toast his chief political fixer and leading spinmeister

Obama will go down in history as the president who lost Egypt - Haaretz Daily Newspaper | Israel News

So many don’t realize that the perceived strength of the U.S. President on matters of human rights and Liberty has a lot to do with how bold the enemies of these things will be.

This subject is like the Supreme Court, there are just some people who can’t comprehend how far reaching the good and the bad aspects of a President will go long after their term ends.

The enemies of self determination and Liberty smell blood, they will use any conflict to entrench themselves without fear of reprisal.

I have to agree with Volk on this one. We have no business interfering with Egypts’ internal affairs unless we are asked to by either the government or by the People. Egyptians should determine the future of their country not America.

Obama apparently believed the main problem of the Middle East was the Israeli occupation, and focused his policy on demanding the suspension of construction in the settlements and on the abortive attempt to renew the peace talks. That failure led him to back off from the peace process in favor of concentrating on heading off an Israeli-Iranian war.

So in effect Obama signaled to the Mideast his support of those who hate Israel.

Egyptians aren’t. Muslims and commies are. It’s like the US. The radicals tend to stay in the big cities.
