One Muslim Brotherhood president has been overthrown. But the other one is still on his second term.

I’m not going to run the full bag of generic drivel that Obama unloaded tonight. Most of it consists of meaningless words. A lot of stuff about the Egyptian people, democracy and teddy bears.

So let’s skip straight to the threats and the pro-Brotherhood rhetoric.

We are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsy and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsy and his supporters. Given today’s developments, I have also directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the Government of Egypt.

I don’t know who Obama’s Royal We are, it’s not the American people who don’t give a damn, but he didn’t show the same concern about the arrests of Mubarak. And a rush to elections is how the Muslim Brotherhood wound up being the first in line at the ballot box.

Finally, Obama and his minions swore up and down that they couldn’t possibly stop supplying Morsi with weapons. Now suddenly Obama is concerned about (gasp) American Law, a subject that he usually cares less about than the price of tea in China, and the implications of supplying aid to a non-democracy.

Perhaps he should take that question up with the Islamist FSA brigades in Syria whom he’s supplying with weapons. I don’t recall them holding any elections.

The voices of all those who have protested peacefully must be heard – including those who welcomed today’s developments, and those who have supported President Morsy

Why do I have a feeling that President Morsi Obama weighs the latter group more than the former group.

Obama-Morsi

  • Softly Bob

    The more that Obama reveals himself to be the evil snake that he is, the more that people like us knew that we were right about him all along.

    This is the time that he should have kept his mouth shut. His little Arab Spring experiment had failed and his Muslim Bro government in Egypt have now failed. He could pretend to have been dumb and naive all along, just an idiot who backed the wrong horse. Instead his arrogance won’t let him stop digging his own grave. For him to still be supporting Morsi now, is a big, big mistake”
    In fact Obama could not be making his true colors clearer than if he had stood up on live TV and shouted “I am a Muslim and I hate America.” at the top of his voice,
    Of course, his faithful voting public still won’t get it. He could line them all up one by one and punch them in their faces and they still wouldn’t get it!

      So well-stated!

      The media hasn’t been giving adequate coverage and photos of the signs the Egyptians made. Write and complain, people.

  • Drakken

    Comrade Obummer and his minions must be having a complete meltdown that one of his allies got overthrown and have no clue as to what to do about it except use empty words from an empty suit.

  • ziggy zoggy

    Even Obama’s warnings are couched in pu$$ified doublespeak. The Egyptian military is laughing at him and his empty threats. That’s why it took out the Morsi Brotherhood to begin with.

  • soldier4110

    The President is a very vengeful man. Undoubtedly the anti-Obama and anti-Paterson signs displayed by the opposition are sounding like fingernails on a chalkboard to him. I wonder if the NSA has identified all the 20 million Egyptians who protested against Morsi. The President surely will find a way to threaten and intimidate those people.

  • Ellman48

    It’s very telling that Obama stepped out of his seeming indifference about the events in Egypt once it became clear that Morsi’s neck really was in the noose. How different from his open, unambiguous condemnation of Mubarak. His solicitude about Morsi’s fate is quite transparent, almost like that of a son pleading for his father’s life. What’s the real connection between Obama and Morsi and the Brotherhood? There’s a lot more to this liaison then we’ll find out about from the propaganda stream media. At the same time that the US State Department announces “we don’t want to get involved” Obama pleads publicly with the Egyptian military for Morsi’s survival. This regime has to rank as the most incompetent and bewildered in our history.

    Interesting loyalties our muslim-national-socialist-black-liberation-theology syncretist has. When honduras’ president broke their law and was removed by their congress, Obama sided with the lawbreaker. Obama sided with Russia by betraying the Czechs and Poles, on the anniversary of the invasion of Poland by the Soviets. When the muslim brotherhood and similar groups fomented rebellions in the middle east and near east, he sided with them.

    Barmy Barrack’s precious misogynistic brotherhood … they should be despised for their actions NOT supported!!
    Nose out – for a change.

    Hillarious will be WORSE if ever elected.

    THE STREETS OF CAIRO ERUPTED WITH CHEERS … get it?

      He’s worried the American military might get ideas

    One Muslim Brotherhood president has been overthrown. But the other one is still on his second term.

    I wonder: Just how far will Teh O go to rescue his band of Brothers? We could be in for a very dystopian future.

    The military should quickly kill Morsi and his closest collaborators to make crystal clear to Obama that there will be no rollback.

  • delm31_nabla@yahoo.com

    Morsi=jailbird. But his following will simply go underground and terrorize Egypt. Best never to travel there.

  • Gee

    The US supplies weapons to most of the two-bit dictatorships in the world, how is the new Egyptian government any different from say the FSA?

  • Sam Cane

    He’s dumb enough to threaten them. I think this is about him wanting to control the make up of the African Caliphate. The bastards he put in charge were talking about destroying the pyramids and the sphinx. Not only had their church burning madness stopped 11 billion annually, but those bastards wanted to permanently turn Egypt into nothing but a rock pile. The People rejected their rule, so barry soetoro is threatening them!

  • johnfsmith94

    “He did not show the same concern about the arrest of Mubarak.” Are you serious? There is a different between the overthrow of a corrupt, US-supported dictator who has been in power for more than 30 years and stole billions from his people with US complicity, and the overthrow of a democratically-elected President who has been in power for just one year.

    You, my friend, are biased and irrational.

  • TexasVetgal

    If we didn’t have such losers and cowards as Congressmen, Ob0zO would be under arrest for the damage he has done to this nation. Its not to late, Arrest this lying fraud usurper, He is not eligible nor qualified to hold office. Get him out NOW, by any means possible, some preferable to others.
    Disgusting what this a$$hole has done to this Nation. Round ‘em all up for a good public neck stretching. Hitlery and Nazipolitano included.
