Morsi: “Obama Has Been Very Helpful, Very Helpful”


You can say that twice. And Morsi did. Because Obama has been really, really helpful.

“President Obama has been very helpful, very helpful,” Morsi told Time Magazine. “And I can say really that his deeds coincide with his intentions.”

Sure, just ask anyone trying to earn a living.

Meanwhile the Obama Administration is taking a strong line in favor of the protesters and against Morsi’s power grab. A line almost as strong as the one they took on the Iranian uprisings. It’s almost like Obama Inc. favors tyrannies, so long as they are Islamist tyrannies.

As we called for last week, when confronted with concerns about the decree that he issued, President Morsi entered into discussions with the judiciary, with other stakeholders in Egypt. As I said, I think we don’t yet know what the outcome of those are going to be, but that’s a far cry from an autocrat just saying my way or the highway.

I hear Prime Minister Chamberlain will be suing the State Department for plagiarism.

The White House lavished praise on Morsi for his role in the ceasefire and has appeared to tip-toe around a full condemnation of his apparent power grab since then. Press Secretary Jay Carney has said the administration is “concerned” and has expressed those concerns to Egyptian officials. But asked on Monday if that equated to a condemnation, Carney demurred.

“I don’t have any new language to give to you today on how our view on it — what our view on it is,” he said. “I would say that we are concerned about it and have raised those concerns.”

He characterized the situation as an internal conflict to be solved by Egyptians.

Calling it an “internal conflict” is code for “we will allow the regime to do whatever it wants without interference.” So yes, Obama is being very helpful indeed.

    "Calling it an “internal conflict” is code for “we will allow the regime to do whatever it wants without interference.” So yes, Obama is being very helpful indeed."

    You could not be more literally correct than this. To a totalitarian globalist like Obama, this is precisely the definition.

    Ugh, that's not ever something I want to hear out of an Islamist's mouth.

    Of course he's been helpful,very helpful, they are brothers in arms,peas in a pod, turds in a toilet . When 0bama was debating the Rino John McCain in that disastrous election in '08,McC.said"You said you would set down with A-jad ,castro,and chavez…" 0bama said "Of course I will, these are the people I'll have to deal with for the next 8 to !0 yrs." 10 yrs?? and this is a supposed Constitutional "professor". Didn't he know he can only serve 8 yrs., or is something else in the offing. Mistake,I think not.

      "Didn't he know he can only serve 8 yrs.,"

      Only according to that pesky document he called "outdated" and 'deeply flawed'.

        Look for a try at a third term or worse. He said he would impose his will on congress,if he could. If he gets a chance he will get around the Constitution and impose his will on the people. Executive orders,you see.

    Quisling and Chamberlain run the US State Department.

    There is a reason they call it the "Brotherhood". I mean what would they think of Obama if he didn't help his fellow Moslem Brotherhood member out.
