(The New York Times)   NY Times: Terribly hard for us to say, really, but this Morsi fellow might perhaps not be a force for moderation in the Middle East...let us ponder the meaning of his expressions like "bloodsuckers" and "vampires" a while longer   ( divider line

The Times was perfectly happy to have 'moderate' authoritarians like Mubarak in power and oppressing their own people for decades. Why should this matter to them now?

Pretty sure the idea wasn't that Morsi is/isn't a moderate, but that he was democratically elected.

also, yes, this is very ugly, but it was in 2010 when he had no apparent hope of becoming head of state. If he was wasn't very strongly pro-palestinian, Egyptians wouldn't take him seriously. I'm sad to admit this seems to apply to old school racism as well.

..and we are done in two.

Democratically elected President of another country says something or other. Times reports it. Not sure where the problem is but I suspect somehow this has got to be Obama's fault.

You should expect something bad.
