    Does Time magazine think Americans can


    This Week's TIME magazine has a prozac version for all us docile sheepfaced American idiots.


    Ignorance is bliss, and we all are still on our honemoon.


    =================================================================
    For the covers of its Europe, Asia and South Pacific editions, Time went with "Revolution Redux," covering another uprising of Egyptians against military rule and featuring a defiant Egyptian rebel on a fiery street donning a gas mask.

    For the U.S. cover, Time went with a smiling, androgynous black and white cartoon figure to illustrate a special health feature that asks, "Is anxiety good for you?"

    This week a radical Islamist government was voted into power in Egypt (the US BTW spent 200M spreading democracy in Egypt. The fact that Egypt is a disaster doesn't speak well for his support for the "Arab Spring".

    Now follow, Time editorially supports Obama, they aren't going to run a cover that makes his foreign policy look bad, they want him reelected.

    Time Magazine is just a fancy rag, The Boston Herald and Drudge have far more Credibility, they are just like NBC so biased and partisian that they are now nothing but "toilet paper" if any of you have one, spread it out on the kitchen floor and let your dog sh!t on it.

    This is one of these idiotic right wing lies, that is repeated over and over again, but when confronted as to what they would do, there is only silence.

    Reminds me of the gulf oil spill when they repeated the lie about Obama did not know what he was doing over and over again. When asked what they would do there was no response...

    The method of the right is tiring, tell lie after lie, repeat it and tell the same lie again... they somehow think that the lie is believable, but it is still a lie. Never a solution, just repeating the lie.

    Obama's opinion doesn't matter, either. His policy does.

    Our policy is to support democracy....which is what the elective procedure is all about. If the Egyptian people choose an Islamic government, that's their choice.

    Or should we have forced a regime that we somehow magically put in place rather than a regime that Egyptians elected?

    Not undercut Mubarek knowing that the Muslim Brotherhood was waiting in the wings, this is what I said earlier in this year.

    The Camp David accords are going to be nullified as per the leaders of the parties taking over. We could have a new war in the ME.

    Oh yeah not give these clowns 200M. of $$$ we don't have.

    You also said that Sarah Palin would announce herself as a candidate for president on Labor Day and that Herman Cain was gonna be the main man.

    Mubarak was going down, US help or not. The smart move would have been to engage the Muslim Brotherhood years ago when they might have been more receptive to us. To Bush's credit on this issue, he did actually try to do that a bit. It met with fierce resistance here, unfortunately.

    The nullification of the Camp David accords is not a fait accompli. The isn't the flimsy Phalangist-Israel treaty we're talking about here. There are billions in aid and equipment tied up in this deal. The Egyptians remember the lessons of the Iranian revolution well. Don't burn bridges with your chief arms supplier if you think you might ever need spare parts and ammunition in the future.

    Well, that's the carrot we've dangled to entice Egyptian acquiescence to an unpopular treaty.

    Right now the Muslim Brotherhood is speaking in moderate terms. It is not an especially radical group in Egypt, though it has had extremist individuals just like the Republican and Democratic Parties here. It has also modernized its beliefs and seems to be interesting governing.

    The Republicans are doing all they can to destroy the economy and block even the payroll tax cuts in the hope that that will defeat Obama. By painting the results in Egypt in the most pessimistic way, you are hoping that Obama's overall superb foreign policy will fail. After all, let's face it, it's under Obama that bin Laden and Qadaffi fell, that we're getting out of Iraq, and that tensions with NK have calmed. Clearly, Obama has accomplished far more to protect America in 3 years than the Republicans accomplished in the previous 8 years. But, we can always hope that Egypt becomes an enemy. Keep your fingers crossed!

    Well that's a relief.

    I guess that tells us where things are headed when the MB are the moderates.

    We'll see if they actually do any "governing".

    I'm with you on that one. A lot of money on the sidelines.

    They have?

    History will tell. Was Egypt an ally before? I think they were the equivalent of someone to whom you pay protection money.

    Sounds like what Castro and the Ayatollahs in Iran said when they came to power.




    Obama doesn't need any help destroying the economy, it seems to be the only thing he can do well. The fact he never had a job is showing up now.

    HE is just playing class warfare to deflect from his record of failure with the economy.





    Yawn, Al Queda was on the ropes when Obama was sworn in.

    I am not being pessimistic I am being realistic about what is happening. IMO you are seeing thing through rose colored glases hoping it will help Obama get reelected.

    That's almost as vague an answer as your hero Cain would give.
