    Obama has scrapped NASA and made it into a Muslim Outreach and we still have this kind of nonsense. I thought this fraud was going to make the world love us. Another epic failure.

    Egypt is to Obama as Iran is to Carter.

    Forget the election. Impeach Now.

    "Egyptian demonstrators climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo today and pulled down the American flag to protest a film they say is insulting to the prophet Mohammad.

    Update at 2:07 p.m. ET: CNN reports that U.S. security guards fired a volley of warning shots as the crowd gathered outside the embassy walls.

    CNN adds that the embassy had been expecting a demonstration and cleared all diplomatic personnel earlier from the facility.

    Original post: The Associated Press reports that embassy officials say there was no staff inside at the time.

    Reuters reports that protesters tried to raise a black flag carrying the slogan: "There is no god but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger."

    The news agency says about 2,000 protesters have gathered outside the embassy and about 20 have scaled the walls.

    The AP says the protesters were largely ultra-conservative Islamists."

  3. Interesting article. We give Egypt $1bill of taxpayers money, they use it to buy two subs from Germany. Then Israel will expect us to increase their aid to combat the Egyptian subs.

    Maybe the Israelis should point out to the Germans who has nuclear weapons and who doesn't. Payback's a bitch.
  4. "Egypt is to Obama as Iran is to Carter. "

    Brilliant point that is not made enough.

    I don't know why this isn't Romney's campaign slogan.
  5. Because it's even more stupid than the We didn't build it nonsense. Come on AAA.
  6. It reminds me of the 1970s
  7. Time will tell. Iran blew up immediately in the idiot Carter's face, but he was plagued by bad luck. Probably the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running Egypt are clever enough to wait until after the election with their patron obama safely back in the WH to do anything really extreme.
  8. Actually Romney has a better slogan that has already been tested in an election. It's also very fitting to our current situation.

    "It's the economy stupid."

    People in the USA only vote for what sounds good to them.
    Many of you just don't get it.

    Condition of their iPhone is way more important than the condition of the United States.

    Just face it: Americans are dumb.
    This election will prove that the USA is a liberal country.
    Romney should win this election by a landslide, if people think about what we have in the White House.
