Obama’s Statement on Egypt (still sides with Morsi)
Wall Street Journal ^ | 7/3/2013 6:57 PM ET

Posted on 07/03/2013 4:57:01 PM PDT by markomalley

As I have said since the Egyptian Revolution, the United States supports a set of core principles, including opposition to violence, protection of universal human rights, and reform that meets the legitimate aspirations of the people. The United States does not support particular individuals or political parties, but we are committed to the democratic process and respect for the rule of law. Since the current unrest in Egypt began, we have called on all parties to work together to address the legitimate grievances of the Egyptian people, in accordance with the democratic process, and without recourse to violence or the use of force.

The United States is monitoring the very fluid situation in Egypt, and we believe that ultimately the future of Egypt can only be determined by the Egyptian people. Nevertheless, 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'm not even sure if the broken clock rule works with this a$$h@t. I have NEVER seen anybody so consistently wrong in my life.

It would be funny if it wasn't so dangerous.

The obozo administration said they were thinking of reducing the aid the US gives to Egypt if Mursi was deposed - now that it’s happened, the US can keep the ~4+ billion a year that is spent there!!

Of course he does. He, Hillary, Rino’s and the liberal MSM bet the ranch
on the “Arab Spring” and the violent Muslim Botherhood. Looks like they
all bet on the wrong Arab Spring.

I was waiting for that-his attempt to get their attention through his mention of “aid” and the “implications” if they don’t put his man back.

He’s warning the military that aid will be cut if they don’t turn over rule to a non-military interim gov’t quickly.

Nothing like a homosexual administration which gained power to promote homosexual agendas through corrupt democratic power mechanics to encourage a Muslim leaning foreign nation in their political turbulence to embrace democracy.

(It’s almost as convincing as posting women as Ambassadors to Muslim nations.)

I don’t know if he’s wrong or he’s right (though my reflex with him is that if he likes it, it must be bad, especially for the US), and I doubt that he knows, because I doubt that he’s all that concerned wth the “wrong and right” of it, at least from Egypt’s viewpoint. But isn’t it rather crass, in the 21st C, to openly state before the world to a sovereign nation, “cave, or no more dinero”? Won’t that put the back up of Egyptians, for him to call them on carpet, so to speak, in public?

Wonder if Putin has any interest in getting in on this?

Nothing more stupid than a woman ambassador to a Muslim Nation. They CANNOT do anything she says or they will look weak. It is also very insulting. No wait, there is one thing worse.

A black woman Ambassador.

He has lost an ally in his idea of a “New World Order”. He will threaten a lot and make a lot of impossible demands just like those made to the Shah of Iran by Jimmuh Carter.

I still think our genius foreign policy master, obama, should go personally to Egypt and tell the masses they are wrong and he is right.

Are you referring to Morsi, or Obama?

Obama is more dangerous to us than is Morsi.

This is one of those statements that says a lot while saying nothing. It is an anodyne statement that is meant to appeal to all sides without condemning anyone.

The major mistake was even mentioning US aid. 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.

It is a ham-handed approach that didn't need to be made public. It will not be well-received by any of the parties.

Ted Cruz has made an excellent statement re the failures of Herr Obozo in Egypt:

Texas Republican Sen.Ted Cruz blasted the Obama administration’s policy toward Egypt in a scathing op-ed in Foreign Policy magazine, slamming the president’s stance on the Muslim Brotherhood “one of the most stunning diplomatic failures in recent memory.”

As the Egyptian military ends President Mohamed Morsi’s rule, Cruz points out that the ire of many people in the streets of Cairo is not reserved for the Muslim Brotherhood alone.

“The people protesting in the streets were not only carrying anti-Morsi signs,” Cruz writes. “They were also carrying signs with slogans like ‘Obama Supports Terrorism’ and ‘Obama Supports Morsi,’ as well as pictures of the American ambassador to Egypt, Anne Patterson, with a large red ‘X’ through her face.”

Below are some examples of the pictures and signs carried by the enemies of Herr Obozo, the Egyptian People in Cairo.

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.
We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same,
or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children
and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
"
President Ronald Reagan
