With the glaring exception of Vice-president Biden, officials in the Obama Administration fervently hope that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will achieve a smooth and rapid transition of power from himself to others, obviously excluding family members and thugs in the Muslim Brotherhood.
The hope is that the transition will happen sooner rather than later. Much sooner, in fact.
For his part, President Mubarak does not see the urgency of change and is quite comfortable with remaining in power until at least September when elections will be held.
For some inexplicable reason, Mubarak is operating under the retarded notion that the people of Egypt need his presence for another eight months, to “oversee” the transition.
Might that foolishness have originated with Joe Biden?
However, as was brutally obvious in Cairo on the day after President Mubarak spoke to the Egyptian people, the huddled masses are not amused.
They want Mubarak to shorten the transition time table so that he is gone—NOW!
Clearly, President Mubarak is in complete denial. He simply cannot, or will not, accept the fact that the game is over and that the time for him to go has arrived.
Call it “Denial on the Nile.” Remember you read that here first!
Speaking of denial, President Obama appears to similarly smitten. In his speech following that of Mubarak on February 1, Obama said the following, in part:
“Furthermore, the process must include a broad spectrum of Egyptian voices and opposition parties. It should lead to elections that are free and fair. And it should result in a government that's not only grounded in democratic principles, but is also responsive to the aspirations of the Egyptian people.”
Interesting words, those, especially the part about the need for “a broad spectrum of voices and opposition parties” and a call for “government being responsive to the aspirations of the people.”
This moral talking-down from an aloof, elitist president who
presided over a corrupt process of manipulation to pass a socialized health care bill (ObamaCare), despite widespread opposition among the governed and the opposition party.
This blatant hypocrisy from an inexperienced community organizer who chose to bribe, deceive, lie, misstate, deny, extort, slander, obscure, hide, execute, misstate, sabotage, and any and all other acts of sleight-of-hand chicanery and tom foolery needed to pass ObamaCare in cahoots with like-minded Marxists in Congress.
This condescending language from a wrong-minded, anti-capitalist renegade who chose to render the principle of democratic governance subservient to the wishes of the elitist governing class, including Congressional scalawags such as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid who hold the will of the people in utter contempt.
Antonyms to the way in which President Obama handled health care include open, honest government, integrity, rule of law, Constitutional, fair, decent, democratic, representative, and American.
Unfortunately, Obama’s dictatorial behavior has extended beyond the criminal antics required to pass the controversial measure.
Indeed, two federal judges have independently ruled that ObamaCare is unconstitutional.
Furthermore, federal judge Roger Vinson ruled that as a result of the unconstitutionality of the "individual mandate" that requires people to buy insurance, the entire law must be declared void.
While Judge Vinson did not issue a specific injunction against implementation of ObamaCare, he clearly expected the Obama Administration to pull the plug on the flawed legislation, as evidenced by the following words from Vinson on the subject:
"...there is a long-standing presumption that officials of the Executive Branch will adhere to the law as declared by the court. As a result, the declaratory judgment is the functional equivalent of an injunction.”
“There is no reason to conclude that this presumption should not apply here. Thus, the award of declaratory relief is adequate and separate injunctive relief is not necessary."
WRONG! To date the Obama Administration has simply ignored the ruling by Judge Vinson.
Which leads to the following conclusion: Not All Dictators in Denial Live by the Nile!
