Obama muddles ahead

Obama muddles ahead

Amidst anarchy in Egypt and rumors that Hosni
Mubarak
plans to step down so that Mohamed
ElBaradei
, supposed “point man” for the
“outlawed” Muslim Brotherhood, can seize control of the reformed Egyptian
government, in an effort to reassure
a tense
world President Barack Obama finally took to the stage with an
update on the crisis in Egypt.

Somber and in control, Barack assured the people that in between basketball games
and cocktail parties for political advisors, his “administration has been in
close contact with our Egyptian counterparts and a broad range of the Egyptian
people, as well as others across the region and across the globe.” Then Obama, a
man who seems to lack
core values
, gave his word that when it comes to Egypt, “a set of core
principles” leads the way.
The President espoused opposition to violence, commended the Egyptian
military for “professionalism and patriotism,” and thanked them for “allowing
peaceful protests while protecting the Egyptian people.” Ever the promoter of
“change,” Barack Obama urged “the military to continue its efforts to help
ensure that this time of change is peaceful.”
Maintaining a serious tone, Obama never mentioned the Tea Party, Fairness
Doctrine or Internet “kill switch,” but claimed to “stand for universal values,”
such as “freedom of assembly…speech and…access to information.”
Midway through the address, the always predictable Obama accidentally slid
into campaign mode and spoke out on “behalf of the need for change.”   Regaining
composure Obama shared that President Mubarak recognized that “the status quo is
not sustainable and that a change must take place,” which coincidentally are the
same words Obama uses whenever referencing health
care
reform, the war in Afghanistan,
or when out promoting new/justifying old  failed
policies
.
The President said, “Indeed, all of us who are privileged to serve in
positions of political power do so at the will of our people…The voices of the
Egyptian people tell us that this is one of those moments; this is one of those
times.” Amazingly, Obama hears the Egyptian people 6,000 miles away, yet seems
hearing-impaired when it comes to listening to the voice of the American people
about ObamaCare.
Nevertheless, the President shared that he told Mubarak, “Now, it is not
the role of any other country to determine Egypt’s leaders. Only the Egyptian
people can do that.” Still, it did seem as if Obama offered Mubarak a polite
suggestion, nudging the toppled president toward “an orderly transition [that]
must be meaningful, … peaceful, and …must begin now” – emphasis on the “must
begin now.”
Speaking on behalf of old
friends
, Obama allegedly expressed a willingness to
support
the Muslim Brotherhood’s role in a reformed Egyptian government.
However, in this statement, Obama referenced “free and fair” elections and
suggested Mubarak’s three decades-old dictatorship be replaced with a system
influenced by an ideology that supports a Islamic theocracy rooted in Sharia
law, or what the President loosely defines as a “broad spectrum of Egyptian
voices and opposition parties.”
Even though it appears “aspirations of the Egyptian people” may have been
manipulated by an Islamist organization with “stated goals … to
instill the Qur’an and Sunnah as the ‘sole reference point for … the Muslim
family, individual, community … and state,’” as well as the annihilation
of Israel
, Obama did not hesitate to propose Egypt’s new government be
“grounded in democratic principles.”
Despite the fact that an overconfident Muslim
Brotherhood
told “Egyptians [to] prepare for war with Israel,” President
Obama vowed that throughout Egypt’s transition process, “the United States will
continue to extend the hand of partnership and friendship to Egypt.”
The President, who ignores the voice of the
American people and who burdened generations of children with insurmountable
debt, spoke with respect for the younger generation who took to the streets of
Cairo, which is quite contrary to Obama’s opinion of
peaceful protestors in America. Obama said:  “We hear your voices…[and] have
an unyielding belief that you will determine your own destiny and seize the
promise of a better future for your children and your grandchildren.”
So a short recap of Obama’s most recent comments on the crisis in Egypt
include: Mention of . America did find out that the President does support free
speech, but just for Egyptian protestors, and an Internet “kill switch,” but
only if his hand is on it.
While speaking about Egypt, America was reminded that the President saying
“the status quo is unsustainable” is an all-purpose justification for whatever
Obama wants to defend or support. Thankfully, the nation also learned that our
esteemed leader isn’t profoundly deaf, only conveniently hearing-impaired when
within earshot of certain voices, and that “passion and dignity” are respectable
traits in protestors, but only if no one is waving tea bags around.
Above all, it’s likely that America was relieved to find out that Barack
Hussein Obama is open to Sharia law having input into Egyptian governance, as
long as radicals pinky-swear to reject terrorism and accept democratic goals.
Summing up his short public statement on the crisis, Obama ended by sharing
his opinion that “truth” is defined as a “sense of community.”  Yet, the
President retreated from the podium without mentioning the single most glaring
truth of all — ousting Mubarak’s regime and allowing the participation of an 80
year-old religious brotherhood, regardless of how minimal the influence, or
smooth the transition, will eventually make 30 years of repressive government
seem like Egyptian paradise lost.
