@bobw111 – Yes, words cost little. But words elevate to acceptance and endorsement fairly quickly. Especially when this was seen coming from miles away. There was never going to be a Jeffersonian Democracy in Egypt and this administration was all in favor of the chaos and what eventually would come from that chaos. Now we see what the emergence and beginnings of another Islamist state. And the US has enabled this movement to initiate the hijacking of another state. More to come I fear.

Here come the Christian fundamentalists that are bent on keeping their religious war against Islam criticizing sensible dialogue. Do you all even realize how similar you are to the Muslim fundamentalists you hate so much?

Would you rather just ignore these guys that have much influence in the post autocratic Egypt? That is exactly what has got us into trouble in the past, you know what insanity is? doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. About time we got a smart enough leader to know we have to change our ways. It is not our position to dictate what, if any, kind of democracy the Egyptians want. It is our place to work with the groups that the Egyptian people pick as their leadership, if the Muslim Brotherhood is one of these groups, so be it. What got us in this mess in first place was dictating out ‘will’ and ‘morals’ on other people that do not necessarily think the same way we do, that is what you all in the right do not realize.

@justuhvoter….do you always have to inflame the discussion by implying that our President is a closet Muslim? if he was would it really matter? are we not supposed to have religious freedom in this country? I think you show your true un-accepting of others not like you nature with comments like that. That is the EXACT opposite of what America is supposed to stand for
