White House clarifies Obama’s statement that Egypt is not an ‘ally’



quote:

President Barack Obama didn't intend to signal any change in the U.S.-Egypt relationship last night when he said Egypt is not an "ally," the White House told The Cable today.

I am confident that this "gaffe" will receive the same degree of attention that Romney's alleged "gaffe" has.

I wonder if this is an instance where the President "shot first and aimed later"?

But they had been an ally for decades right? So how is this not a change?

re: White House clarifies Obama’s statement that Egypt is not an ‘ally’


the egyptian government isn't even fully formed yet; they're still rebuilding after a massive shift overthrowing the former regime. who would the US be allying itself with right now?

if he'd said we were a strong ally of egypt, i'm sure there'd be right wing outcry about how obama allies himself with the Muslim Brotherhood.

on this board, Obama is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

President Obama is the first man in history to have the ability to use white out on his statements.

Wasn't the original statement a prepared statement? Why is it necessary to clarify a prepared statement? That is not a gaffe. That is incompetence.

ok, sure. but if you want to criticize the way the left reacted to Bush, i'm not sure reacting the same way to Obama is making any point about the need to be rational and reasoned.

see? obama has his officials meet with representatives of egypt's new regime, obama's a secret muslim and is criticized. obama states that we're not currently allies with or enemies of the new regime, he gets criticized.

damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

Dem control of the message via an obliging media has and probably always be the big obstacle for Pubs.
