Remember the left claiming the Egyptian revolt was a good thing?

    While the right warned of possible terrible outcomes?

    Now the Egyptian army is killing Christians in mass. Even running them down in the streets with military vehicles. Killing the very people that supported them during the revolt.

    Bandwagon mentality really makes you guys look foolish in the end. Occupy anyone?

    Anyhow, I've gotta get in the store to meet a client so ill check in later.

    What, is everyone ignoring this? It's not like it isn't recent. I can see the parallel to todays protesters in the fact that the left instantly latched onto what could be another explosive situation.

    people ignore it, because blanket statements about some nebulous "left" are silly.

    i'd say you probably think i'm "left" on most issues. and i can promise you, i never thought it was good. mubarak was a creep, but he was our creep.

    The left supports killing Christians! Why do you think the left idolizes and romanicizes the French Revolution so much.

    Egypt to Obama is what Iran was to Carter. The muslim brother hood is likely to get into power there now. Mubarak kept the peace for 30 plus years in the area and was our friend...We fucked him over...Watch for a much more unstable middle east; because of this, as you don't remove friends that make a area stable as Obama did...It is not wise.

    Of couse, you are correct in your analysis of Egypt...but Gramps is correct...there were folks on the Left jumping on the Tahir Square bandwagon....

    Ms. Truthie was so happy about 'democracy coming to Egypt.' And there were others who suggested that she put the breaks on.

    Overall, though, it was the Left who cheered, believing, I guess, that it was support for President Obama, who threw Mubarak 'under the bus.'


    "It appears everyone, from both sides of the aisle, is praising our president for the way he handled the events of the first geo-political crisis he has faced since occupying the White House.

    Egypt is now "free" and Mr. Obama will not cease in taking credit for being a large part of the "history unfolding before us." I only hope he doesn't live to regret what he took a bow for.

    The perceived victory Mr. Obama has achieved is no surprise. It came by employing a political strategy he has used over and over again. It's the same one he used to secure his presidency. He has just tweaked it a bit to work in a diplomatic way in Egypt.

    He threw someone under the bus."

    Within less than a century of gaining their independence, Americans were engaged in a Civil War!

    According to "Grampa Murked U's" logic, support of the American Revolution should be condemned as a "Bandwagon mentality" in which the Founding Fathers were made to "look foolish in the end."

    Nice projection. I was unaware our founding fathers were fighting against people who like to blow themselves and innocent people up. Slight difference in desired outcomes.

    Grampa's logic says you should fully understand the people and the actions they intend to persue before looking like a fool and siding with terrorists just to gain political points in the short term.

    The left latched on to Obama and got failure, Healthcare and got trounced in the midterms, Arab uprising and now innocents are being slaughtered, protesters in Wisconsin and lost the recall effort, a "jobs bill" that is doa, disgusting low life protesters with a sketchy outcome, etc...

    I give you facts of mass sheep mentality and you give me projection.

    And what makes you think those who actually supported turning Egypt over to these people are upset that Christians are being murdered?
