weeklystandard.com ^ | June 24, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 06/24/2012 11:31:47 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

White House spokesman Jay Carney issued the following statement in response to the Egyptian presidential election:

"The United States congratulates Dr. Mohamed Morsi on his victory in Egypt’s Presidential election, and we congratulate the Egyptian people for this milestone in their transition to democracy.

"We look forward to working together with President-elect Morsi and the government he forms, on the basis of mutual respect, to advance the many shared interests between Egypt and the United States. We believe that it is important for President-elect Morsi to take steps at this historic time to advance national unity by reaching out to all parties and constituencies in consultations about the formation of a new government. We believe in the importance of the new Egyptian government upholding universal values, and respecting the rights of all Egyptian citizens – including women and religious minorities such as Coptic Christians. Millions of Egyptians voted in the election, and President-elect Morsi and the new Egyptian government have both the legitimacy and responsibility of representing a diverse and courageous citizenry.

You know, this might have been the one time that Obama and his crew kept their gaw-damned crap-emitters shut.

They just sealed the deal on World War Three.

Thanks, asswipes.

Has the Hollywood crowd sent their good wishes yet?

One good thing—when they finish taking us over, there will be no more Hollywood and not much of anything else except a whole lot of killings, day in and day out.

Hmmm, who will they k-i-l after everyone is converted? Each other.
They become bored real easy. LOL

Things will now get much worse for minorities and women, particularly Coptic Christians, and the US Obama supporting media will turn away and not report what is happening or publish propaganda pieces on the great advance for democracy taking place in Egypt.

This all shows the significance of BHO’s first speech in office “reaching out” to the Islamists in Egypt.

He’s kept his promise to them at our own peril.

WHY are the politicians who could do something about him so blind to what’s really happening and how the Wan endangers America at every turn??? Do none of them put their country first and don’t they realize that if it’s down the tubes, there will BE no more elections or politics?

If even a few would stand up and speak truth to the people, millions more would thank them than would vilify them.

Egypt will devolve into Iran on the Mediterranean. Soon impoverished hordes of refugees will be flooding into what’s left of Europe. The US has been sending the Egyptian military two billion dollars a year for the past thirty years. Great return on investment. Obama will probably double the contribution.

I think davius was reminding us of how this very same thing happened 40+ years ago under Carter (with Iran).

Dems are so ignorant of history - since, like goldfish, they appear to live in the perpetual now - that they have already forgotten the Khomenei takeover. Actually, they don’t even care.

But, guys, think of the bright side. I might have sealed the deal on American involvement in WW III, but that guarantees my reelection. As soon as America experiences a nuclear attack, I’ll be just like FDR, and my speechwriters will have me sounding like him, too. And when we respond with a nuclear counter-attack, I’ll be just like Harry Truman blowing up Hiroshima. And don’t worry about what happens if they blow up Washington. I’ll be out of the office playing golf somewhere. So this is really great news, guys. I’m going to survive a nuclear Pearl Harbor, and sound just like FDR and Harry Truman combined, and get reelected! Guys? Guys? How come you aren’t celebrated? Ah,forget it. All you freepers are racists.

Double, triple LoL on that one. Those people in that part of the world have no concept of "democracy" or anything like it and one crummy little excuse for an election changes nothing in that regard.

Fitting that phony Ed Koch, the former NYC mayor and allegedly a staunch supporter of Israel, announced his wholehearted support for Obama's re-election today: the very same day that the Muslim Brotherhood won the Egyptian presidency thanks to the work of none other than Obama and his pro-Islamist pals in Washington.

Inane as it sounds, Koch claims that Obama has become pro-Israel since that NY special congressional election where the Republican Bob Turner, endorsed by Koch himself, pulled an upset in Weiner's former district.

He has become a supporter of Israel as sincerely as he is a supporter of national security, law and order, and tax cuts for the middle class. That is to say, he is as sincere as he is capable of being, i.e., not at all.

I actually think it is even worse than that. Obama has been destabilizing the largely secular Arab dictatorships in North Africa and the Middle East and pushing the Muslim Brotherhood and other transnational Islamists into power throughout the region. More than any other person, Obama is bringing about the creation of the Islamic Greater Caliphate that is the Muslim dream. The Caliphate will unite to try and destroy Israel and serve as the springboard to the Islamization of Europe and attacks on the US.
