Saudis to Obama: Lay off of Hosni

Does anyone remember just last week where Obama and Gibbs told Hosni Mubarek to get out of town by Friday???  Well Mubarek is still there and there are no signs that the 82 year old dictator is getting out soon.  It seems that the disastrous foreign policy team of Obama wants to pretend that what they said never happenned but as Obama slogs from one foreign policy disaster to another the truth comes out. According to the UK Times, our weak kneed,  wussified, apologizer in chief was given his dressing down and marching orders by Saudi King Abdullah (I guess all that bowing never really worked.)  From the U.K.  Times the story states
In a testy personal telephone call on January 29, King Abdullah told President Obama not to humiliate Mr Mubarak and warned that he would step in to bankroll Egypt if the US withdrew its aid programme, worth $1.5 billion annually. America’s closest ally in the Gulf made clear that the Egyptian President must be allowed to stay on to oversee the transition towards peaceful democracy and then leave with dignity.
So once again our boy Messiah in chief blows it and foreigners call him on the carpet.  What will Obama do?  He will crawl in the corner like a whipped puppy sacrificing American prestige all the way.  The Obama handling of Egypt beginning with Joe Biden saying Mubarek is not really a dictator has been a Keystone Kops operation from day one. Read here how the Saudis have read the riot act to the weakneed Obama. http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/news/

  1. The Saudi’s can tell him that because they own him. At least that is the impression that Obama gave them when he bowed to the Saudi Prince. It was an act of fealty and they saw it that way.

  2. Foreign policy could be BO’s undoing in ’12, particularly if the ‘moderate’ revolution in Egypt in fact follow the pattern of Iran. Carter encouraged the overthrown of the Shah amid cries of ‘democracy’ and look what happened. Liberals and their media operatives are currently exhibiting the same naivety; the prospect of replacing Mubarak might seem perfectly sensible, but doing so abruptly rather than through the electoral process might allow the radicals to fill the void during the subsequent political confusion.

  3. The “electoral process” in Egypt is fatally flawed. If Mubarak stepped down today, an election would have to be held within 60 days — in a country with no organized opposition outside of the Muslim Brotherhood.

    It is rather amusing, though, to hear right-wingers pretend they have any idea what the best course of action would be. I get a big kick out of the way blog commenters have convinced themselves they know more than people who have devoted their careers to these countries and issues.

  4. I don’t think that “people who have devoted their careers to these countries and issues” have any idea what will happen; remember Zbigniew Brzezinski?

  5. I don’t think they do either — which makes it even more unlikely that laymen are doing anything beyond guessing.

  6. Supposedly, Mubarak steps-down tonight, with his hand-picked successor to take power. Good luck with that.

  7. “I don’t think they do either — which makes it even more unlikely that laymen are doing anything beyond guessing.”

    Of course we are all guessing. According to this report the shots are being called by the Saudis and not our government.

  8. For your next post, could you please predict that the rest of the Middle Eastern dictators will remain in power?…alpha

    Are you responding to me? All I said was:

    Supposedly, Mubarak steps-down tonight, with his hand-picked successor to take power. Good luck with that.

    That’s what I heard; that he’s stepping-down tonight. And I assume his ‘new’ VP (or whatever he’s called) will assume power. And when I say ‘good luck with that,’ I mean that I don’t think the protestors will embrace the new leader.

  9. One man, one vote , one time is endangered and throughout the Middle East there will be repercussions for every country over many years.

    As for Egypt the military is the power behind the scenes and the transition IAW their concerns. The protesters and the elites are headlines but the military is in control and will continue to be.

  10. think123,

    I had forgotten about our former President sucking face with the Prince down on the ranch. Thanks for reminding me.

  11. I mentioned BO once on this thread:

    Foreign policy could be BO’s undoing in ’12, particularly if the ‘moderate’ revolution in Egypt in fact follows the pattern of Iran.

    That’s not true?

    I will say that I believe that the Chinese and Russians see Obama as a naive pushover.

  12. Think 123 if you can’t engage in debate without namecalling and personal attacks then I will think you need to rethink about posting here. If you think that Fay can get annoyed with your constant name calling wait until you get done with me.

  13. Tennessee, stop telling folks I called you “names”. I did not call you “names”. We can tell you like being a censor because you don’t just xxx out some bad word or two, you erase an entire comment when it embarrasses you. God forbid Tea Party should gain any real power.

    How do you figure that you get to personally attack the President as “weak kneed wussy apologizer in chief” – then you want to get all sensitive about name calling?

    I did not call you a “name”. Just busting you for trashing our Commander In Chief. Certainly did not say you are a weak kneed wussie. Mainly I did say your hostility towards American leadership in the mid East is divisive. You and the other Tea GOP folks are jumping on this foreign turmoil as a chance to bad mouth the President. It’s part of the reason why voters think the GOP is partisan to the point of being simpleminded.

    I get the feeling you are not used to having your opinion busted in public. If you want to discredit the President, expect some push back.

  14. You and the other Tea GOP folks are jumping on this foreign turmoil as a chance to bad mouth the President…

    Who needs ‘foreign turmoil’ when you have Obama Socialism?

  15. Think 123, the president is a public figure. Don, Rick and myself are not the President of the United States and are not public figures. The fact that you are so dense as not to comprehend this simple fact says more about you than anything I can say.

    The leeway granted to public figures are not granted to insulting individuals on this blog. If you don’t understand this then go elsewhere.

  16. “As for Egypt the military is the power behind the scenes and the transition IAW their concerns. The protesters and the elites are headlines but the military is in control and will continue to be.” Worth repeating after hearing Mubarak’s speech.
    The former President sucking face with the Saudi king. Let’s get real. Bush like every sensible President knows a government program can’t produce oil but the Saudis can at the drop of a hat. The Saudis have the surge capability we need to stabilize the oil market a bit.
    By the way, Mubarak told Obama to take a hike in his speech-priceless.

  17. Tennessee, your theory about insulting public figures being different than insulting private people has to do with liable suits. Not blogs. Has nothing to do with you censoring people who give you a hard time. You weren’t libeled, not even named. So make all the excuses you want for erasing my repudiation of what you were saying – the truth is . .

    You were just called out, you don’t like it, so you want to make you own rules regarding what constitutes free speech. I understand. It’s the oldest instinct in the book.

    Delaware Politics has to be a total first amendment zone. This is a political blog. The belly of free speech beast in America. Cybersoap box where citizens young and old alike take center stage and mouth off. And you Mr. Tennessee want to decide, all on you very own, what constitutes an insult?

    You’re the one who said the Commander In Chief is a weak wussie boy messiah when it comes to foreign affairs. Fine. Gross, anti-intellectual, bad for GOP image, simpleminded. But fine.

    I reply by saying our adversaries in the MidEast say similar things to discredit American leadership. I say that when Republicans like you make simpleminded comments like that it makes the entire GOP look bad. Makes this blog look stupid.

    Face it Tennessee, you want to break balls, you just don’t like to get yours broken. I’m going to blog right here. My job is to make sure Conservative Republicans don’t get dumbed down too much by what you post.

  18. Think whine and cry all you want. In fact why don’t you go over to Delaware Liberal and cry on Pandora’s shoulder. That is your typical MO when you get paddled over here.
    Now I appreciate the fact that you are such a big fan of Obama and that you think Conservatives should defend the inept foreign policy of this president. But your name calling of just not me but others on this site, I will no longer tolerate. I thank Fay Voshell for pointing out that we need not put up with your poison.

  19. I’m a fan of having respect for the Office of The President. Falls under the basic category of conservative Republican patriotism. You want to bring that talk radio trash Obama talk to the blog, call him a weak kneed wussie boy apologizer in chief like you did here -don’t be surprised when you get busted for being obnoxious. You don’t have to be a fan of anybody, just don’t be anti-intellectual. It’s bad for our GOP brand.

  20. Think I would have some respect for your position if you actually went after Liberals who compared Bush to Hitler. This is something you never did. Instead you went after Bush yourself.

    I am calling Obama an incompetent. I am not saying he is the equivalent of a mass murderer. For some reason your criticisms are very one sided.

  21. Tennessee, stop telling folks I called you “names”. I did not call you “names”. We can tell you like being a censor because you don’t just xxx out some bad word or two, you erase an entire comment when it embarrasses you…think123

    Yeah, I tend to agree. Tennessee doesn’t like being put in his place. At least he finally seems to have stopped his whining about you-know-who.

  22. @Mike Protack

    I believe that think123’s comment about the former President sucking face should have been compared to comment #1. which said “The Saudi’s can tell him that because they own him. At least that is the impression that Obama gave them when he bowed to the Saudi Prince. It was an act of fealty and they saw it that way.”

    bowing – kissing, you can kinda see how the one comment might draw out the second right? Especially if you replace “bowed to” with “kissed” in the second sentence.

    And of course the point would be just as you alluded to “Bush” (Obama) “like every sensible President knows a government program can’t produce oil but the Saudis can at the drop of a hat.”

  23. Calling Obama incompetent is reasonable if that’s what you think. Not sure what you mean about Bush. On a number of occasions I rolled out numbers to say Bush ruined our fiscal world. I don’t think I ever disrespected him with name calling. I think Bush was right on Iraq after 9/11. I don’t care about WMD or no WMD. Watched many long interviews with Bush. For me, Bush seems very quick, very bright, overall a good guy. I got no beef with Bush except he screwed up the fiscal with some bad theory gone wild.

    I’m not concerned what extremists in the Democratic Party call Bush. But on a blog called “Delaware Politics”, where folks from all over might stumbleupon to see what Delaware conservatives, Delaware Republicans are saying – I don’t like seeing the blog look stupid with the anti-Obama trash radio talk. So . . say all you want about my man Obama. All I ask – for the sake of the Party Brand is – do it in a William F. Buckley way, not a Howard Stern fart joke way.

  24. Think123 not once on Delaware Liberal did you ever call your liberal buddies out on their name calling of Bush. Your concern for the dignity of the Office of the Presidency is seriously one sided.
    Now not only did you direct a personal attack at me you also did so against Don Ayotte and Rick.
    You also have also done so against Fay Voshell in the past. Now you can do all of your meaningless first amendment blathering that you want but we have had to change our individual judgements since the episode of Rick’s immigration solution of “six guys in a pick up truck with shotguns” comment. This caused this blog to be the subject of public ridicule in this state’s highest circulation newspaper. I have spent countless hours cleaning up comments and redacting the result so the commenter does not look like an idiot. This includes editing your comments. I refuse to spend that kind of time anymore.

    When you engage in ad hominem attacks against me, Don, Fay, Rick or anyone else I am just going to delete the whole thing. I no longer am going to be your editor.

  25. I have spent countless hours cleaning up comments and redacting the result so the commenter does not look like an idiot.

    There just isn’t enough time in the day, is there.

  26. “There just isn’t enough time in the day, is there.”

    No there isn’t. But not having Jason posting here as much recently certainly made the job easier.

  27. Tennessee, citing the First Amendment is not meaningless blathering, as a matter of fact I resent that attack, you’re the one who is doing the meaningless blathering. You are this close to ad hominem. I will consult my old Pravda manual.

    I happen to like the First Amendment. As you know, it’s not the First of the Amendments for nothing. What your talking about is that you and your crew feel “insulted” ad hominenily – because you want to write nasty stuff and not get called out in public. Call folks baby murderers who favor abortion at the Party of Death with the Communist President who shares values with Stalin, while the Right is tied in to Christ and the left worships government not God. That what the old crew here has been posting you know. And that’s when I answer with a pie in the face, then all the tough guys suddenly get all political correct saying they feel ad hominized.

    How dare you call me names you cry? Why I only suggested that you and your ilk of a weak kneed boy messiah Party of Death President favor mass baby killing and communism.

    The oldest instinct in the book is to want to spout off then censor the opposition. Egypt has been doing that for 30 years. Maybe you should declare a State of Emergency on the old blog here, grant yourself special powers until things calm down. Appoint some of your crew interim Vice-Censor.

    The solution is you don’t be so gross, that way I won’t have to be so gross. Otherwise, you get a pie in the face from me.

    I don’t care what Democrats say on Delaware liberal, if they want to look stupid that’s fine with me. My interest is making sure Conservative Republicans don’t look stupid.

  28. And that’s when I answer with a pie in the face, then all the tough guys suddenly get all political correct saying they feel ad hominized.

    No, some of the ‘tough guys’ do- and all the liberals do.

  29. think 123 as usual you respond with emotion and not facts and then you do your usual misrepresentation.
    First I love the first amendment. I just don’t care for YOUR blatherings on it.
    If you want to exercise what you see as your first amendment rights to say anything, anyplace, anytime, then buy your own newspaper or start your own website. This website is under no obligation under the First Amendment to print anything you say. You should know this since you were suspended from posting here for your ad hominem attacks on Fay Voshell. Now if you think I am wrong then hire a lawyer and sue this site for my decisions so that I can laugh at the utter stupidity of someone who continually demontrates that they don’t know what they are talking about.
    Now that I have paddled your arguments with logic and facts, go back to your buddies at Delaware Liberal and complain about your treatment.

  30. Tennessee, ever since you learned “ad hominem” you have been a real pain. For a guy who calls himself Tennessee Walker, you sure seem a tender footed cowboy.

    Not sure why you want to me to hit the road. You’ll end up with 5 people writing the same crap agreeing with each other. Are you in charge of tent shrinking and main censor too?

    Don’t be saying people are wussie boy baby killers in the Godless Party of Death and we’ll be okay. If your crew wants to say the President is part of some African liberation plan to ruin America (as they have) – I will be here with a pie in the face. You call it ad hominem, I call it getting a dose of your own medicine.

  31. Think I would love for you to stay, your panties in a bunch hysterical rants with no facts or logic make it easy for me to paddle you with facts and send you on your way. As ususal you change the subject after I destroy your arguments. Your 1st amendment rights have not been abridged here otherwise you would have hired a competent attorney to defend your rights.
    You have some contributors here who want to see you out of here and have said so. I was not one of them.

    Now once again I can destroy your hysterical arguments with facts.

    I have called only Dr. Gosnell a baby killer. That is because he killed babies.
    So now thinkless 123 cite one instance where I called anyone the Godless Party of Death.
    Cite one instance where I said that Barack Obama was part of to use your usual hysterical language a ” part of some African liberation plan to ruin America ”

    I am awaiting your answer althought I know for a fact that you will avoid citing anything. You see I know you don’t deal in facts just a lot of hot air.
