Cairo, Again

Instapundit is linking this picture of the streets of Cairo during today's protest over the Morsi government...

Meanwhile Obama is at the other end of the African continent right now--a good example of his Egypt strategy that seems to include staying just close enough to the issue to take some credit but just far enough away not to get any blame. 

So as the world awaits the outcome of these protests Obama will either be....right alongside everyone else, reading about it in the paper. That is, if things go to worms.  If things go right, ie, the Egyptian people peaceably force another election thereby reducing the Muslim Brotherhood's power and prestige and giving the Arab Spring a true glimmer of hope, well, he will be right there, front and center saying that he predicted this all along and it came about due to his policies, which will include praise for Hillary2016! for carrying them out.  C'mon, you know it's gonna happen.

He supposedly called leaders at the the Yarnell Hill fire where 19 firefighters died, and told them that "he could be there in a few hours if they needed him".


No one believes that he is "needed" there nor do they believe he will cut his trip short to be there.

Just like the folks in Egypt actually believe anything he says.

Right Truth

Wow, had not heard that.

He's apparently also imprisoning women in the White House.
