What should Obama do about Egypt? Exactly?

I keep seeing all the blame placed 'Obama lost Egypt' type rhetoric but I'm not sure what y'all expect him to do or what he CAN do.


Please be specific.

  • Obama is the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA not egypt. Thats all I'm going to say, I think the answer may be assumed.

    Don't worry about it, she has no answer. I say he is doing the right thing if he can keep his yap shut. If we do not want to alienate the future government in Egypt, the right thing to do is let them make their choice and go from there.

  • Why must Obama do anything? Let's focus on THIS country, and getting us out of it's economic slump, getting people back to work, getting the housing market back up, getting healthcare settled, fixing education, etc etc etc..............................

  •  I answered this earlier~Well, what Obama should NOT have done? Let Biden talk, sending mixed messages. Let Gibbs talk, sending wish washy crap. THEN Obama should have publicly announced that the U.S. would review any/all financial assistance to Egypt and make further assistance contingent based on the Mubarak's government's ability to follow through on a formal pledge to reduce the use of force/risk lives and pledge to commit efforts to restore order; Obama should threaten withdraw of assistance unless Mubarak agrees to open up the political system and permantly restore communication/media.

  • Carpy, it seems as though you are saying that Obama should support Mubarak vs the Egyptian people.
