RealClearPolitics - Video - Matthews On Handling Of Egypt: "I Feel Ashamed As An American""What was our plan for transition for our friend? Did we ever talk to him about it, encourage him? That's my view; character and planning. I feel shame about this. I feel ashamed as an American, the way we're doing this. I know he has the change. I know we're for democracy, but the way we've handled it is not the way a friend handles the matter. We're not handling it the way Americans should handle matters like this. I don't feel right about it. And Barack Obama, as much I support him in many ways, there is a transactional quality to the guy that is chilling. I believe in relationships. I think we all do. Relationship politics is what we were brought up with in this country. You treat your friends a certain way. You're loyal to them. And When they're wrong, you try to be with them, you try to stick with them."
We did a lot worse to the British in '54 over the Suez crisis and it didn't get that ugly. It is possible that nobody will get terribly worked up over this incident. The emotional feeling of betrayal is certainly their, but there isn't any actual damage from the information. If the British say "those lousy American's are a bunch of lying weasels, the next time they start an idiotic war they can go it alone", that would end up being positive in the long run. That said, Obama was still an idiot for authorizing this. The sensible thing to do would be negotiate a fair exchange for the information, not stab your ally in the back and then get your bad behavior aired to the world.you have to wait?
for the reaction of our most reliable ally?
to their being deceived and bargained away with no say?
go for it, take your time

I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
