Obama Backs Morsi as Egyptians Demand his Resignation


At a crucial moment, Obama demanded that Mubarak step down. At an equally crucial moment, Obama has stepped in to back Morsi.

Obama said the White House is “concerned” about the outbreak of violence in Egypt and is monitoring the situation closely. But the president said Morsi’s election was “legitimate” and called on all parties in Egypt to return to the negotiating table.

“Our position has always been, it’s not our job to choose who Egypt’s leaders are,” Obama told reporters in Tanzania. “When I took a position that it was time for Egypt to transition [away from Hosni Mubarak in 2011], it was based on the fact that Egypt had not had democratic government for decades, if ever. And that’s what the people were calling for.”

The people in equal numbers are now calling for something else.

And Obama did not tell Mubarak that he had to stand for elections. He told him that he had to step down. That’s a very big difference.

Obama’s claim that he does not choose Egyptian leaders. He chose Egypt’s leaders when he made sure the Muslim Brotherhood would be at his Cairo speech.

Obama chose Egypt’s leaders when he pushed for Mubarak’s immediate resignation leaving the Brotherhood as the only organized force capable of stepping into the power vacuum.

Obama chose Egypt’s leaders when he rewarded Morsi with aid and weapons, shoring up his regime. And he’s still backing him now.

That’s a choice.

Back in the day, Obama claimed that America was hated because it backed tyrants. Obama is backing another tyrant in Egypt. But this tyrant is an Islamic tyrant.

It’s not about democracy. It’s about Islam.

    Of course for Obama it isn’t about democracy but support for Islamic tyrants and terrorism against human dignity and freedom of Americans as well.

  • Gee

    More stupidity from the Thug-in-Chief. It’s time for him to step down

      He’s arming Islamists in Syria, This is an impeachable offense.

  • edlancey

    Yes, unbelievable and incomprehensible as it seems, Obama and his merry band of traitors have decided that these headhackers are “our guys”.

    Well, actually it’s perfectly comprehensible if you take Barry “I will always stand with the Muslims” Obama at his word, which sadly so few people seem to be willing to do.

    • 8ball

      Obama’s decisions are only incomprehensible if you resist the logical conclusion that he’s a closet Muslim. He’s now arming al Qaeda in Syria. Not even Joe Biden would be stupid enough to do that.

    Paying the piper for the rookie mistakes and selfish indulgences of this Clown Prince of Alinsky will haunt our nation for no less than five decades.

    Thank you lo-info citizens.

      These are not rookie mistakes. These are the decisions of a closet Muslim.

      • Torqued

        Exactly. But he’s out of the closet. He always was to me.

      • onecornpone

        You’re right, he shows all the signs of being a “closet Muslim” but the “rookie mistakes” manifest in his failure to find a candidate modern Muslim citizens of a fairly secular Egypt could support (they don’t want to be Iran-ized), whereas his choice of the Islamo Nazi Brotherhood to control the entire ME is quite contrived and predictable.

        I agree , he is a closet Muslim who believes in Islamic rule. How can there be any doubt ? The Muslim Brotherhood have infiltrated our White House . They are making policies within the DHS. They are purging our CIA and FBI’s training manuals of all mentions of Jihad and Muslim Extremism. The enemy is training those meant to protect us. We know from investigative reporters that Obama attended a Mudrassa while in Indonesia and that his family in Kenya were Muslim , black slave traders !!! WTF , people wake up!!! While we are all arguing over abortion , over immigration , this usurper is weakening our military, weakening our economy , making us more dependant on foreign oil . Oh and killing the dollar. we are being set up for a takedown . What do you think is going to happen if we have a total meltdown collapse and are attacked by radicals by design ?

    Why does his support for a dictator surprise us? Morsi’s bunch did vote fraud. Obama’s party did vote fraud unlike any other time in history.

      No thinking person would ever spend his tourist dollars in an Islamic country. I will never go to Bali, and I will never go to the Maldives.
