Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss.
Obama's guy. Neat!
This is the perfect example of Egyptian democracy. One man, one vote, one time and then wipe out your political opponents.
Just a couple days ago Obama and Hillary were patting this guy on the back. Four more years of a failed foreign policy for the USA.
So much for democracy in Egypt. And don't forget, Obama has said more than once that he wishes he could simply bypass Congress. It seems they are birds of a feather.
How is Morsi different than Mubarak? Revolutions and power vacuums can be very very dangerous. This was not a win for Egyptians wanting democracy. This was a win for a ultra muslim dictator who now is in power.
It is ironic that he is a product of a democratic vote in his country, and now more/less turns his back on democracy. That does not give credence to a few people commenting here, to bad mouth the Egyptians just yet. Would they have preferred not to have a democratic election? Do they not have faith in democratic elections? Would they like to see the USA just blindly install a puppet government in this country? Further, would they have preferred that Morsi not help the current administration stop the Isaeli/Gaza conflict and let more people die just because they don't like Obama and Clinton? I think some people need a reality check, and also need to look at the alternatives. Let Egypt find their own destiny, and if it doesn't quite fit with your idea of life, then so be it, but the Egyptians overthrew one dictator and this guy appears to be wearing very thin. Let the Egyptians find their own solutions.
Good to see the resistance to what appars to be yet another duly elected leaders of so many countries who then goes the strong man route to assume unlimited power and to eliminate the opposition. But as many have already said, that is a problem and/or opportunity for the Egyptians to resolve and not ours.
This is the way it was until the American Revolution. One guy (or royal family) held ALL the power. Our founding fathers were very wise to create 3 independent branches of government.
