He looks serenly judgely
So a coup here would give us President John Roberts? What good is that?
I wonder if used that word (as opposed to "democratic system") deliberately? I wonder if he knows the difference? I wonder if he will try to give Egypt a republic, as America once was?
I'm sure Obama would much rather have him in a full beard, headscarf and a koran...
isn’t there someone from Obama’s past named Mansour? Related maybe? Just a-wondering cause ya-neva-know...
wonder how he got the job?
Now to apply for our 1.8 billion refund....
Mansour said: "I swear by God to uphold the Republican system and respect the constitution and law.
God -- not Allah?
Republican -- not small R republican (ok, an interesting editorial decision by Al Jazeera - unless it was also a written statement)
the Constitution -- which one? the MB bastardization or the original one?
Sounds like a powerful impetus driving this change of regime. Trying to think of any where else that might apply where the regime in power is thinking ahead as to how to permanently concentrate power in the hands of their party... doing things to ensure this, such as changing the electorate, for example.
democratically elected with 24% of the vote...........and after Mubarak was illegally thrown out................uh, see any issues there?
You know you got a problem when Al Jazeera has better reporting on this than US media. Some of the most patriotic people that I know are Arab Christians living in the US. Why? Probably because they know exactly what it’s like living in a Muslim dictatorship, and want nothing to do with it. Congrats to the Egyptian Tea Party, hope they can keep their Republic.
dead Judge walking.
From the UK Guardian story:
“Mansour, who was appointed as head of the constitutional court on Sunday, said this week’s protests had “corrected the path of the glorious revolution that took place on 25 January 2011”, and that continued revolution was needed until “we stop producing tyrants.”
I think Egypt is going to be juuuust fine.
The Egyptians have done more in 4 days to combat Islamofascist terrorism than Obama has done in 4 years.
