    We hear again and again that the President messed up with Egypt by letting Mubarak fall. For those who believe that,

    what was the correct course of action, in your view?

    Nah I wouldn't go that far, I got no problems with Mubarak but we really don't have the resources to invade Egypt to keep him in power.

    Again you can't even be honest with the Most Basic Facts. Nobody is saying we should have kept him in Power, What people are saying is it was Irresponsible of Obama to Encourage his Over throw with out a clear plan as to who would replace him.

    And he showed his Ignorance when he tried to tell us all that what was happening in Egypt for Example was a good thing, was going to lead to more freedom.

    It's irresponsible for us to even be involved in who rules what country, other than our own.

    Its now become painfully obvious that Obama cheer leading the Arab spring was a major fuck up

    No... but no support of the actions going on in Egypt should have been given...And certainly no support of the muslim brotherhood should have been voiced when they started taking over the government there... and certainly they should not have been invited to the US for meetings (the new Egyptian leadership)
