    Decree yourself absolute power. Say it is for "stability." Force through an Islamist constitution that blatantly ignores protections for minority groups, who all resign from the drafting process.

    From these origins, you are expecting free speech, religious tolerance, and economic freedom to flow forth?

    Yea guys nuts... Is this guy Moris? No. Is there any identifiers that show Morsi backing these statements? No.

    Is Morsi "moderate"? I dont think so. Seems to be following the line of Mubarak...

    The decision to rule by decree to complete the Constitutional Convention was and remains deeply troubling. But the fact remains that the opposition remains vocal and able to organize, elections remain scheduled for next month, and the country hasn't collapsed or been overthrown yet. We haven't crossed that threshold and there is still reason to hope. Nations, especially nascent ones, have returned from worse tumult.

    Yes. He didnt fire the ****ing idiot. Hes either stupid, incompetent, or ignorant of PR. None of which belong in a position of leadership associated with the current leader of any country. You dont fire him for the statement, you fire him because he was stupid enough to say it and mean it---embarassing his boss. As an aid, your primary job is to make your boss look good. This didnt quite make it.

    I share no hope in a Muslim Brotherhood president, nor the people who elected a Muslim Brotherhood president.

    I'm fairly certain I remember Morsi being quoted as saying he believed 9/11 was a CIA plot. To be honest I don't think it means that much - outrageous anti-western beliefs bordering on conspiracy theory like this are surprisingly common in many Muslim countries.

    The country is deeply divided. The Muslim Brotherhood candidate was elected partly by default, partly because the MB already had a much larger, already functioning campaign machine that put them at a distinct advantage in the election. I think the ongoing unrest is indicative of limits to Morsi's support among the population.

    So some one in Egypt that no one in the US has ever heard of says something stupid and your first thought is how to try and use it to bitch about liberals. Very revealing...

    They are descended from apes. They really shouldn't take it personally though, that just means they're humans.

    So lets see. In 2003, Bush said that the Iraq War would lead to democracy blossoming in the Middle East. Now it is, and Cons are in panic mode. Sounds about right.

    Right, I'm sure he didn't mean it personally. How about the "pig" part? Can you, at least, see where that would be an insult, especially for those of the Jewish faith?
