I thought the most incompetent President in history couldn't possibly damage the United States any more than he already has. I was wrong.
By publicly calling upon Mubarak to resign he has undermined our relationship with just about every other country on Earth. Mubarak is a brutal dictator, no doubt, but how do you expect the president of any country to react to Obama calling for his resignation? What do you suppose King Abdullah is thinking - hey, I'm on the side of the US, but the moment a crisis occurs, President Obama will call for my head too? Some friend the US is.
I'm no diplomat, but I'm sensitive enough to understand no one in his right mind publicly meddles in a sovereign country's affairs in such an overtly boorish manner. For a US President to do so would have been unthinkable. So I thought.
Jordan and Egypt are probably the only two US-friendly countries left in the Middle East. Egypt may go the way of Iran... and then what do you suppose Israel will do? If Netanyahu has any intelligence at all, and I think he does, he'll quickly learn the US won't lift a finger to help in the event of a crisis. Who's next? Germany? Japan?
Obama has now demonstrated that his first instinct would be to cave in to the demands of an angry mob - as long as they're in some other far-off country, that is.
So what, you think? That brings us to Saudi Arabia - the only remaining US ally in that part of the world, despite having sent nineteen islamic terrorists to kill us ten years ago. Well, it seems they have offered to match the US's magnanimous billions of foreign aid to Egypt, should the US threaten to use its increasingly emaciated muscle to influence events over there. Who needs the pathetic US dollar anyway.
Millions of Americans were duped by a nice face and a good speech into thinking Obama was capable enough for the job. I never understood that, having actually read some of his writing I concluded (like anyone who read some of his writing would conclude) that he was dumb as a post. I'm afraid he's turned out to be much worse than I thought. Obama is a goddamn fool who's already wreaked incalculable damage to the US, and is now intent upon inflicting his incompetence upon the rest of the world.
Obama's mishandling of this disturbing situation has made it likely to end worse for the US than it does for Egypt or any other country. He could have handled this event in almost any other manner.
His ineptitude is boundless.http://m.whitehouse.gov/blog/2011/02...not-going-workhttp://news.blogs.cnn.com/2011/02/09...-aid-to-egypt/
