Erick Erickson: Egypt Uprising Is Obama’s Fault
Sometimes you have to wonder if certain pundits say ridiculous things just to get attention. Blaming President Obama for the Egyptian uprising has to rank up there. It’s as though those who disagree with Obama root for him to fail, and grasp at any world event in a desperate attempt to find fault. Erick Erickson:

We can however blame Barack Obama for failing to mitigate and control the impact of the collapse.
Like when a demolition team sets about bringing down a crumbling building — and we now know Obama collaborated to help bring down Egypt — the demolition team must make sure the building, as it implodes, does not throw debris and carnage all over the place. If that happens, the demolition team is liable.
Erickson goes on to blame Obama for saying there should be a role for the Muslim Brotherhood in a reformed Egypt. Here’s a bulletin to conservatives: It’s called “democracy” and “the will of the people.” If you don’t like what people want in their own countries–well–we’ve seen what exporting American democracy at the point of a gun has produced.Click here for reuse options!
