Obama Observes 30 Days of Silence on Egypt

No matter the disaster we know we can count on President Obama to be AWOL on leadership. As the images of a meltdown pour in from Cairo and all over Egypt, Obama plays the Nero card and fiddles around, hoping someone else will do something.

We saw this inability to lead during the financial meltdown in 2008. Obama sat on the sidelines letting it happen. And again, when the oil began leaking in the Gulf of Mexico, nothing but silence.

But when he does act, it is always wrong, so who can blame him for being reticent?

For instance, in 2006, then Senator Obama took a stand against raising the debt ceiling saying “The fact that we are here today to debate raising America‚Äôs debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.” And now, he is demanding the limit be raised.

Obama took a stance in the case of the black University Professor and walked away with egg on his face.

He has shown a similar failure to act with North Korea, Iran and other nations that are threats to Americans.

Yet he urges restraint when a Muslim Terrorist opens fire on a US Military base, and with other terrorist threats to the country.

But he is the first in line to criticize those who openly disagree with him, or point out his failures, something the “Mainstream” Media is loathe to do.

Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and others do not get the 30 days of silence and calls for understanding and restraint afforded even terrorists.

And it would do this Administration well to take a look at the protests in Egypt. These destructive demands for change are truly a Mob scene. Although every single TEA Party protest was without violence, this Administration and the Democrats wrongly characterized TEA Party protests as identical to those happening in Egypt and elsewhere in this world. This is a country where battles are fought at the ballot box as demonstrated last November. It is unconscionable for Obama and his minions to portray honest dissent as anything remotely resembling the scenes playing out in other parts of the world.

And the hypocrisy of this administration giving advice to Egypt to “listen to the grievances of the people” is laughable. Would that this were a sign that Obama finally “gets it”. That ignoring the will of the people is a career limiting move for politicians.

But, alas, this is simply the ploy of an ineffective leader attempting to play both sides of the fence in order to not alienate the eventual victor.

We have moved from Ronald Reagan’s “Tear down that wall” to a President cowering under a desk, afraid to lead.

    Tom? Obama let the oil spill in the gulf and didn’t ‘do anything’?
    I’m sorry, but what the devil was he supposed to do? Spend money to fix someone else’s (BP) mistake?
    And now you don’t like what he has said about respecting the will of the Egyptian people? And- wait- and you say he’s silent, but you don’t like what he’s said, so… which is it?
    Unless you think the US can and should dictate it’s agenda to another country (which won’t tolerate that), what – and to whom should the US president say, exactly.
    Please write the speak, sir. What should be said? And to whom? The leader on his way out, or the people who are protesting.
    The only thing to say, Tom, is nothing. Just put our money where our mouths are. Made in the USA is on the weapons being used against the demonstrators. We cease the funding and propping up of the dictators. And that action is worth a thousand words.

    Well, I stand corrected. You are correct that he blocked foreign offers of aid, thwarted Jindal’s innovative efforts and tried to use red tape to soak up the oil. But there are those who believe he wanted the disaster to be as bad as possible to push through his anti-oil agenda.

    Apparently, in today’s news, he has decided to throw the Egyptian Prez to the wolves, asking him to step down.

    What SHOULD he do? Simple. What Bush or Reagan would have done. Spread Democracy. Instead, Obama plays footsy with the Muslim Brotherhood – father of terrorists.

    We are in agreement that the $1.5 billion a year we pay Egypt to like us is a horrible idea. We should just give that money and arms to Israel until we get Obama out of the White House and put someone in who understands that a strong Israel and the full backing of the US is the only way to keep peace in the Middle East.

    In the meantime, we simply keep busy erasing everything Obama and the Progressives have done to us this last 4 years.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
