    American's always think everything revolves them.

    The people of Tunisia had lived under a brutal dictator for 23 years.

    They finally get fed up and demanded change.

    What Obama said or didn't say had zip to do with the ousting of the the president. :cool:

    I think, that none of what has happened in Tunisia has to do with Obama.
    The journalist portrays it like:
    "Hey, Obama won't help us, so we make it on our own".
    None of that demonstrators had Obama in their mind.
