The Hypocrisy of President Barack Hussein Obama - Egyptian vs American Protests

Hundreds of thousands of protesters in Egypt take to the streets demanding change from what they perceive to be an unresponsive government. United States President, Barack Hussein Obama is so moved that he calls the President of Egypt urging Mr. Mubarak to step down from his office, perhaps immediately.

He then steps to his powerful presidential podium and speaks to the protesters in Egypt saying President Hosni Mubarak must begin a transition immediately toward a new government, and assured protesters "we hear your voices".

He continued on to say, "To the people of Egypt, especially the young ones, I want to be clear: we hear your voices. I have an unyielding belief that you will seize your own destiny." 

How arrogant is it that this president thinks he can simply inject himself into the political debate of the sovereign nation of Egypt?

Think back now to the summer of 2009 when hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Washington DC and cities all across this nation to protest the Obama Healthcare Bill that was passed anyway, against the will of the majority of the American people.

Did President Obama take to his all powerful, all seeing, presidential podium and say, "we hear your voices"?  No, he didn't. Did he say "You will seize your own destiny"? No, he didn't. Did he get on the phone and call Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and advise them that they make an immediate change in course? No, he didn't.  

In fact, the White House unbelievably declared that it wasn't even aware of the protest rally that received nationwide coverage in advance of the rally.  White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, "I don't know who the group is."

Imagine if President Mubarak, or the leader of any other country had gone on international television and told the Tea Party protesters, "We hear your voice" and called on President Obama to step aside as President of the United States?

What is wrong with this man, that he is so willing to listen to the will of the people; but only when it is the will of people outside of his own nation? What level of self-importance must he have to believe that the people of Egypt will actually stop their protests because "we hear your voices"? And what level of hypocrisy is it that he can respond to the protesters of Egypt and completely ignore even larger protests from American citizens?

Mr. President, I advise you learn to listen to the people of this country.  You know, the ones who actually pay your salary. Perhaps we should demand that you step down immediately, like you are demanding of the President of Egypt.

Listen to US Mr. President.  It is our nation you swore to defend.

What is wrong here is that you have not an inkling of what is going on in the international issue of Egypt because you are too busy Obama -ashing and twisting every piece of news to suit your goal of Obama-bashing to care about anything outside of your own egotistical views and small town mindset.  Egyptians WANT the United States to stop backing a tyrannical despot and WANT him to address the issue.  Our country sends A LOT of money in aid to Egypt and as a result supports a cruel reign of suppression against Egyptian people and prevents them from having anything like our own freedoms- to have free speech & elections that aren't rigged for starters.  So they have grievances with us, and directly with our President(s), for many years now. ----A minor protest against healthcare is ridiculous. President Obama was elected by the majority, that majority wants healthcare, end of story. Sorry if you can't see that allowing sickness and poverty to destroy this country like a cancer needs to be stopped. Why don't you talk about both sides of the issues in a balanced way?

Minor protest?? Majority wants healthcare?  YOU ARE WRONG.
Look at ANY poll and they all show that the MAJORITY do not want Obama's healthcare law - which is not at all about health care but about taking over 1/6th of the economy and the government/bureaucrats telling us how to live. What planet have you been living on? There are people who seem to think that the government providing them healthcare is a right - IT IS NOT a right. People should be responsible for themselves. Tell me Finchy - how long to you think your "free speech" will continue to be a freedom if Obama stays in office? His czars are already trying to limit your rights on the Internet and are trying to find ways to further regulate guncontrol.  You don't think that "rigged" elections happen here? You are fooling yourself. How do you think Harry Reid got reelected? How do  you think the 2012 elections will go? If Obama gets reelected it will be because the unions used every dirty trick in the corrupt book to pad the votes. It simply amazes me that there are people who think like you do - you know - unrealistically and blindly.  Exactly the type of person who Obama panders to. The uneducated, minorities, illegals, deadbeats and the young and impressionable and those who want government handouts.  Why don't you start paying attention to the Obama-bashers - you might learn something.

You took the words right out of my mouth, Yellow Rose. I am just amazed at the way some people in this country think today. If these same liberals acted this way during WWII, we would be either speaking Japanese or/and German as our national tongue. What is wrong with you Obama supporters?! You remind me of a woman who has battered wife syndrome. Obama and the Democrats keep abusing this nation with lies and "back door" deals but his supports keep supporting him anyway! I'm registered as an Independent because I distrusted both the Republicans and Democrats. Left wing radicals want to "change" this nation, mold it like clay to their vision. But what is their vision. Their actions show what their vision is and it's frightening, for us and the future generations of our great country. Wake up Obama supporters! Don't late your hatred over the Republicans or the Tea Party ruin this nation! Be strong and Smarten up!!

Well said to you both!

Actually Oblabla was not elected by a majority of the voters, since less than 55% of eligible voters voted.  And you are completely wrong about the majority wanting the healthcare debacle that the U.S. Congress passed.  While many want healthcare reform, what we were given is not what is wanted.  The situation is only going to get worse even faster under Oblablacare.  Get a clue!

Yes, you are absolutely right, the health care reform that passed was unpopular—because it lacked a more robust non-commercial alternatives: a public option, expansion of medicare, and even single-payer have all polled well.  Obama is not a leftist or a socialist, he is a corporate capitalist as are nearly all American politicians are (Senator Sanders is a lone exception).

sigh...

No Finchy, what's wrong here is that you think this article has anything to do with the international issue of Egypt. This article is about an American president who refuses to listen to the will of the American voter. Barack Obama said in October that the November election was clearly about his presidency. I agree with him on that.  The problem is, he did not learn from his "shalackin" in November and continues with his "my way or the highway" attitude.

Finchy, you're so intelligent you should sincerely stick by your man Barry, and hold steadfastly your allegiance to Muslim Brotherhood whereby Shariah rules.  Down with the infidels!!  On a more serious note, I do not think you comprehended the message of the story. 

ObamaCare and the unconstitutionality of this corrupt bill, and how it was illegally and unethically shoved down the MAJORITY of American's throats, is no minor issue sir.  What town are you from?  Our putative & tone-deaf president needs cochlear implants for hearing, and eye glasses for his myopic vision.  What he is seeing isn't the vision of the American people.

"Our country sends A LOT of money in aid to Egypt,"  That's true, but...

Egypt, after voting 79% of the time against the United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

Jordan votes 71% against the United States and receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

Pakistan votes 75% against the United States receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

India votes 81% against the United States receives $143,699,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

Perhaps it is not time to get out of the UN, curtail our generousity and give the tax savings back to the American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to pay the taxes and be herded like sheep. Egypt, for example, after voting 79% of the time against the United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

The only reason most people don't like Affordable Care Act as passed is because of the ridiculous compromises the Democrats had to make just to get the thing passed. Most Americans want a health care solution that goes much farther towards socialism than the current ACA. You claim to be speaking for the People, but most Americans are like me, not like you. Most Americans are sorry they ever let your side have control of the House, the Senate, and the Presidency at the same time.

"Most American's want a heath care solution that goes farther towards socialism than the current ACA".  Are you kidding?  It's easy to throw out claims that have no backing when you can hide behind a blog.  Do we need health care refrom  YES..do we need a government take over of health care to solve the probem NO.    This isn't about heath care....our country is very very sick and government and it's intrusions into our lives that has made it from a sniffle to a full blown cancer.  Think for yourself and if you're going to throw out facts ans figures...actually have some

Absolutely clueless and dilusional.  You live in your own little fantasy world when you think anyone would be dumb enough to support a system that steals from businesses and tax payers just to provide HC to those who already get it free when the need it.  It will never pass and you LIB are screwed!!!

I love Obama.  Look up authoritarian personalities on the internet and you will read about yourself, and why liberals hate you so. Go ahead, all education is not painful.  But this will be.

You said, "The only reason most people don't like Affordable Care Act as passed is because of the ridiculous compromises the Democrats had to make just to get the thing passed."

Didn't you mean the ridiculous bribes they had to pay to members of their own party to get them to go against the will of their constituents?

Ah yes, of course...  I thought that's what you meant.

I am sorry to have to inform you of this, but most Americans are not like you.  Most opposed the Obamacare program.  The polls clearly showed this and the November election confirmed the polls.

And who's party did the voters just recently take the monopolistic control of power away from?  I think it was yours. Checks and balances are a good thing.  They keep power from swinging too far out of bounds from the will of the voters.

Utterly preposterous is your equation of the tea-bagger protests with what is now occurring throughout Egypt.  Obama was democratically elected and had hardly served a year before the over-exposed tea-bagging affair began.  Mubarak is a repressive dictator who has ruled Egypt for thirty years.  If you can't see the difference you are fool.

drdorje, apparently you didn't hear or head your president's call for civility in discussion. The use of the degrading term "tea-bagger" is nasty, offensive and designed to escalate the discourse in political discussion.

I am not equating the tea party protests and the Egyptian protests at all. Protests by American citizens to an American president should be considered at a much higher level of regard than those of citizens of another country about that country's own political situation.  

Yes, Mubarak is a dictator who has completely ignored the will of his people. He will now probably follow the path of all dictators to his demise as a political force in Egypt.

However, I would say that an American president who ignores the will of the people who, by a large majority, clearly opposed his policies, is leading himself to a role close to that of dictator. The appointment of record numbers of czars, unprecedented levels of recess appointments, ignoring the voice of the American people are all indicators of a leader who is more interested in his own power than the processes of our Republic designed to protect America from the kinds of tyrants who come and go in countries around the world.

Now please go learn how to play nice in the sandbox.

Your use of the derogatory term Teabagger boldly says what kind of human being you are and what you represent.  Do you feel a part of the hate crowd of liberalism?  So much for civility.  Are you a Palin basher as well?

 

Our putative president has had much to say to the public he ignores, like:

 

Obama:“They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />


Obama to His Followers:“Get in Their Faces!”

Obama on ACORN Mobs:“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

Obama to His Mercenary Army:“Hit Back Twice As Hard”

Obama on the private sector:“We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”

Obama to lib supporters:“It’s time to Fight for it.”

Obama to Latino supporters:“Punish your enemies.”

Obama to democrats:“I’m itching for a fight.”

 

Do you think that's classy for a U.S. president?  Is he a dictator or president?  You tell me.  

Watch out America----He is a "Wana-Be-Dictator.

the clear fool is you!  This empty suit in the White House will only go with the flow, he'll never make a tough decision...Iran protesters?  American people?  This clown- Obuma, is playing a dangerous game of Chicago politics that I hope leads to impeachment.

Yes, but your comments will look somewhat naive when at the end of his second term, Barry Soetoro declares himself President for Life and places the FBI and all police forces throughout America under the direct authority of the newly created Dept of National Security headed by Bill Ayers.   

It does not surprise me.  It seems that whenever there is a crisis that as nothing to do with the problems that we the honest, hardworking Americans are facing, we are ignored by this administration, but whenever another country has a problem he seems to have solutions to their problems.   That speaks for it self...I can't take care of my business so I'll just stick my trillion dollar nose in yours, by so doing it'' make me look as if I'm doing my job.   YEH RIGHT!!!!!!

GOD BLESS AND KEEP AMERICAN AND ITS PEOPLE SAME!!
PEACE

Does anyone notice that  "He"  only hears the voices of the ISLAMICPEOPLE,  not the American People.
Change ?  Change  ?    YEA, NOW WE REALLY NEED A CHANGE.

So Obama hears the voices of Egyptians - and not the Tea party.
What more proof do we need that a lunatic occupies the White House?  After all the crazy laws and taxes he's proposing to stop "Global Warming" -  and now his EPA is claiming that your drinking tap water is the cause of Autism -  he passed a humongous "Healthcare" bill for most US citizens (except his buddies in the Unions, who get waivers) and he dissed the USA in speeches to countries all over the world.  What else does he have to do to convince the fools who still believe him? 

I guess it just goes to show how insignificant the Tea Party "Movement" really is. You know, there were some pretty big protests against the Iraq War too. But, since they didn't have the media support that the Tea Party protests have had, nobody wrote ridiculous articles like this one. The success of the Tea Party has nothing to do with grassroots anger; it has everything to do with the power of FoxNews and conservative organizers like Dick Armey. As far as Egypt goes, there is a huge number of Egyptians who are actually suffering from poverty and oppression because of their current government. They have taken to the streets in rage. There is no comparison between this revolt and the Tea Party Pout-riates who are just sore over losing an election.
