Interesting how since the people of Egypt are no longer needed for any of Obama’s manufactured drama he says not a word about their plight. When was the last time you hear him say Afghanistan, even though we have men and women still in harms way? How about those people who were good enough for his Hurricane Sandy photo-op and are still without electricity? Oh I know, I know, he’s a busy man. Redistributing from the makers to the takers is an exhausting task.

We can all thank our President and Hillary for being such a wondefully positive influence in getting the Egyptian government changed to what it is now: a bastion of equality where Christians are embraced and provided housing in the nearest local prison, women are beaten, and journalist becoming quieter by the day.

Meet the new boss same as the old boss! True to Morsi’s fanatic brotherhood roots, they marginalized the infidels(non salafist), didn’t fix any economic issues, Didn’t provide security, and rammed through an unjust constitution. Same excuse for cracking down on opposition as Mubarak used. These people give democracy a bad name. Democracy is only worth keeping if all are respected in the decisions of the majority.

Folks, why so surprised? This is all apart of Mr Obama’s plan for “A New Beginning” in the middle east.

Is Muslim Brotherhood out number Egyptians or what? Just blow back at them at all fronts, they will have to explain why they should hijack a revolution. Egyptians should put chains on lazy people playing god, Egypt’s democracy must not be hijacked by these god playing lazy people.
