    The U.S. won't allow a true democratic election in Egypt. The risk of the Suez Canal and the oil companies there being nationalized are too great. Whoever is in power must capitulate to the demands of the western nations. Whatever Obama is saying on t.v. is what is needed to show the world a certain face. You can bet the intelligence community is working overtime in Egypt right now to ensure the proper person comes to power.

    The Suez Canal is one of the most important economic pathways in the world, if not the most. As if it will be left up to simple elections to determine who runs Egypt?

    FWIW, this could have happened to any president at any time, imo.

    Oh its an obama fail..... That said i wouldnt have confidence that it would not have been a mccain fail either.

    It's not a presidential fail. It's a Mubarack fail.

    This was Mubarack flipping the bird to the entire western world, and the Saudi Arabians backing him in doing so.

    I think Mubarak is already doing a great job of getting himself humiliated since so many of his own people want to cut his balls off. He already looks impotent regardless of what Obama has or hasn't said.

    My guess is...if all this is true, that he is more likely saying to himself..."ok bitches...you wanted it...you got it. Have fun."

    Americans blame the president who occupies the office at the time an adverse event occurs. It is the American way.

    Obama is being blamed because this happened on his watch. His predecessors don't matter in this context.

    Nope. Obama is going to take the heat. He needs to man up and accept responsibility.

    That influence was dead by the time that dubya went on his knees to them asking them to please lower the price of oil. Don't you remember his and America's humiliation back then?
