Granny_Panties: Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Egypt
Lurk sober post drunk: Amy Walter of the Cook Political Report added, "The situation in Egypt is another reminder of the lack of influence the president has right now... his 'lame duck-ness,' both internationally and domestically."i know right? why isn't he completely fixing egypt which he totally could do? geez obama.
Satanic_Hamster: I like how they're also using Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda interchangeably.
Granny_Panties: Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb EgyptIt's only Republican thing left to do! And therefore the word of God!
theknuckler_33: "what would happen if we cut off the aid is that western terrorism ends in Egypt for the forseeable future, for as far as the eye can see. Western investment comes to a standstill. Egypt becomes a begger client state of the Sunni gulf... Arab.. Arab gulf states. Egypt's future is really damned. And I make that point clear, it's just not about the aid, it's about the relationship. We're the strongest nation on Earth, everybody that sides with us tends to do better than people than we oppose. So I would play to the best interest of the military, stop this before it gets out of hand. We can't support where you are taking Egypt. And I'd tell the Brotherhood, forget about the condition of Morsi being put back in as president before you have a new dialog. I would be firm with the military and the Brotherhood, we do have a lot of influence. If American business stops investing in Egypt and American tourists stop going to Egypt their economy is going to be in ruins. There is a lot at steak here for us and them. If you had a winner-loser list from a failed state in Egypt, the Egyption people and the American people would be on the loser list."There's a metric ton of derp in there.
Nemo's Brother: Hilary left at the right time. She knew she and Obama have farked up the world and she skirted out before the flames were visible.DEEERRRPPPPP alert!!! WOOPWOOPWOOP!
potterydove: Obama cancelled firefly?/pitchforks and torches time
Karma Chameleon: Senator Lindsey Graham (R-eaching)More like reaching around. Because he's gay. Get it?
hawcian: FTFA: The Brotherhood is a "force" in the streets, he said, but "if you had new elections the Brotherhood would get creamed."I'm confused. Wasn't the problem that the Brotherhood did win the last election, and their guy basically decided to become dictator-lite? Why, exactly, would they suddenly "get creamed"?/apologies if I'm way off
thanksagainandagain: Karma Chameleon: Senator Lindsey Graham (R-eaching)More like reaching around. Because he's gay. Get it?He's gonna get primaried by a couple of living colostomy bags, so he's got to turn the derp up to potatoe asap to prove his bona fides to his constituency of theocratic nimrods. I wish someone would flood his district with Cheerwine and drown the lot of them.

clambam: No matter what Obama does the repubs will be against it, so honestly, who cares what they think? I thought the line about the Muslim Brotherhood losing big time in a new election was pretty laughable, though. If there;s anything we've learned about the Middle East in the past forty years or so, it's that if you give a Muslim the right to vote, the first thing he will vote for is to strip himself of his voting rights and hand the country over to a theocracy. It happened in Algeria, it happened in Iran, it happened in Gaza, it happened in Egypt, it's happening right now in Tunisia and Libya and the handwriting is on the wall for Iraq and Afghanistan. It hasn't happened in Turkey because the Turkish military comes down on like a ton of bricks whenever someone tries to pull that stunt and it hasn't happened in Indonesia largely because traditional Javanese culture is as strong if not stronger than the more recent Muslim overlay. Creating a genuine democracy in an Arab state is probably what it would have been like if you suddenly gave a medieval serf voting rights: he'd look around in a panic and then gratefully hand power back to the nearest nobleman or priest.
