Before Obama Egypt was an Ally. Now... not so much.

    When Barack Obama was sworn in, Egypt was our ally in the Middle East. Now, even from his own mouth, it can no longer be considered to be so. Video: Obama On Egypt: We Don't "Consider Them An Ally, But We Don't Consider Them An Enemy" | RealClearPolitics

    Even MSNBC can't cover for Barack Obama's LOSS of Egypt, as we see in this reporter's reaction to Obama's statement that Egypt can't be considered an ally:

    The bottom line is the bottom line. That's why we call it that. In 2008, we had a reliable relationship with Egypt, today, they're throwing rocks at our embassy and pulling down our flag. And IF the mob could get into the building, I have no doubt in my mind that our State Dept. staff there would meet the same fate as their counterparts in Libya.

    Barack Obama is a foreign policy disaster, who has presided over the religious radicalization of Middle East, lost our relationships there, and is off campaigning today.

    Obama and his policies have allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to take over several countries that used to be allies.

    An attack on America is an attack on America, whether here or on foreign soil. Can you imagine if Americans stormed the Libyan embassy and killed 4 of their people?? Do you think anyone would be spending time in Vegas on the campaign trail??

    Wake up people, we have been attacked and this President can't stop campaigning, he can't stop blaming and he goes after Romney instead of the terrorists??

    We need to stop sucking up to Egypt.

    Edit to add- although I think refusing to call anyone an ally is a stupid move.

    It's just impossible to imagine more ways he could've bungled this. He's a one-man, foreign policy wrecking ball. When he says he can't consider Egypt an ally, what he's actually saying is that HE FAILED to deal with Egypt in such a way as to achieve AMERICAN goals. Our goal is stability and the creation of allies. Where we had one in 2008, we do not have one in 2012. How can anybody claim this guy is a success? :wtf:

    He didn't BUNGLE it, it's exactly the way he envisioned it.

    Egypt and Libya embrace his vision for America's future, now.

    Maybe. But I just can't give the guy that kind of credit. Everything he does shows a level of nativity that's just ridiculous coming, as it does, from the President of the United States. It seems to me that a guy who thought he was going to solve the problem of Islamic Extremism by giving a speech and by refusing to use the term "Islamic Extremist" is just an incompetent boob, no special malevolence required.

    Well, we supported Egypt's revolution instead of supporting our ally who was killing people.

    The end result is the muslim brotherhood being in control and making religiously biased decisions in accordance with islam.

    On this very day in 1923 the highest temperature ever recorded (58°C / 136° F) was recorded in Aziza, Tripolitania, Libya.


    If we had a real President, we might surpass that temperature, in Libya, today.

    Lets see, our Embassador to Lybia was killed in a terrorist attack on the aniversary of 9-11 and instead of standing up for America, all you can do is play politics.

    You pulled a Romney. You must be so proud!
