Charles Krauthammer Rips Barack Obama, The Bystander in Chief … On Egypt, ‘Obama the Bystander Again’ … People Trying to Bring Down and Islamist Govt and Obama Remains Neutral
What a difference a revolution makes. Why did President Barack Hussein Obama support the over throw of Egyptian President Mubarak; however, Obama remains neutral against the anti-American, Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi? Why is Obama not standing on the side of the people this time? Good grief, Morsi is hardly representing Democracy.
Charles Krauthammer shreds Barack Obama as the “bystander” in Chief :
As he did during Iran’s Green Revolution, President Obama is letting slip an opportunity to dislodge an Islamist regime that will oppose our interests in the Middle East and which ultimately seeks our destruction.
Speaking today in Tanzania, Obama suggested that because Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was elected democratically, the United States needs to sit on the sidelines as Egyptians take to the streets to try to save themselves from Islamism.
As Krauthammer notes, Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood are not democrats, and they have not acted democratically during their year in office. To say one must be neutral in a battle that could remove the Muslim Brotherhood because one is committed to democracy is to caricature democracy.
