You’re All Just Jealous

And you peons don’t understand “Smart Power”

As Egypt descends into chaos, President Obama is facing increasing criticism that an “incoherent” policy toward the country — much like U.S. policy toward Syria — is putting U.S. money and influence on the line without a clear end-game.

The Obama administration claims to be staying neutral in the violent confrontation between the military-backed government and Muslim Brotherhood supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi. More than 600 people have been killed so far across the country.

“America cannot determine the future of Egypt,” Obama said Thursday, in brief remarks from Martha’s Vineyard, where he’s vacationing, as he appealed for calm and condemned the violence.

Yet the administration is sending mixed signals. While the president directly spoke out against the military-backed government on Thursday — and canceled upcoming joint military exercises — the U.S. has refused to label Morsi’s ouster a coup. That means, under U.S. law, the administration can continue to send $1.5 billion in annual aid to the Egyptian government.

The One is just so smart that we can’t possibly understand the subtle nuances of his Divine Plan.

So shut up.

    Obama’s entire foreign policy is incoherent, period.

    Danger quotes need not be deployed.

    JeffS, I think you overrate his foreign policy by an order of magnitude. At the least.

  3. Gunslinger says:

    America can’t even determine it’s own future with this administration of ignoramuses in charge.

    It’s all very strange. Bill Clinton went to Moscow as a student, was a Rhodes scholar.
    Yet, he was from a poor town in Arkansas, always had money as a young man- never had to work-
    Everyone in the town always wondered where he got his money.
    Obama was Barry Sotereo growing up as a muslim in Indonesia.Probably has a fake birth certificate.Yet, he becomes President after two years in the Senate. Strange .
