Millions of Egyptians massed in Tahrir Square in Cairo to celebrate the ouster of Islamist President Mohamed Morsi. Kori Schake of Foreign Policy noted The Insufferable Airhorn “achieved the impossible, getting all factions angry with the U.S.”
Schake continues, “U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration has achieved the hat trick of alienating all factions in Egypt. It neither defended nor pushed out Hosni Mubarak, thereby earning the embitterment of both the ‘deep state’ that had been America’s ally for 30 years and liberals who agitated against it; gave the military a pass during the 18 months of its ‘caretaking’ when policy choices and governance rules might have been established; waived congressional concerns limiting U.S. foreign aid; gave the elected government too little support to have influence; was largely silent during a crackdown on nongovernmental groups; and now condescendingly suggests Egyptians would do better to politically organize than protest.”
Protesters carrying signs that were clearly anti-Obama, anti-Clinton and anti-Ambassador Patterson indicted them all as shills of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood. Meanwhile, The Insufferable Airhorn was playing golf for the 19th time this year. If you’re keeping score, that’s the 130th golf outing of his administration.
And John "Christmas-In-Cambodia-Is-Seared-In-My-Memory" Kerry, Hillary’s replacement at the State Department, was cavorting in Nantucket Sound on his 76-foot yacht, the Isabel.
CBS owned the story regarding “Lurch” being seen riding in a boat to get to another boat just to be able to board the yacht. So it was little wonder that Sunday’s Face the Nation featured Reuters journalist David Rohde saying that the young people of Egypt would not be inspired by U.S leaders.
Rohde said, “The President has a tough statement and then, you, I don’t know how this happened, but it was terrible optics, the next day the President goes golfing and Secretary Kerry is out on his yacht. What does that say to young people in Egypt and across the Middle East?”
If anything, they’re getting a taste of what we here in America have to deal with every day. Welcome to our world kids.
