Egyptian Leaders Snub Hillary Clinton And Point Out Obama Did NOTHING To Help Them

Next up, of course, is Libya, on the extremely unlikely scenario (now) that they can topple Gaddafi in the face of his jets and tanks.

Like anyone who gives a damn about freedom, those who want to escape from Gaddafi’s tyranny are missing George Bush as a useless failure named Obama pisses America away.

Obama said, “We’re tightening the noose on Gaddafi,” and made other similarly useless statements given the fact that he had no inclination at all to do a damn thing to help the Libyan people.

One Libyan resistance leaders said on Fox News:

“We are angry about the Americans.  If the Americans want to support us, then do it now, not tomorrow!”

Obama pontificated, made some bold statements, and then did nothing.  Now a no-fly zone would probably come to late.

It was hardly any different in Egypt.  The only difference was that Mubarak was a pro-American leader who wasn’t prepared to murder his own people; and Gaddafi is an anti-American thug (and therefore embraced by Obama’s pastor for 20 years Jeremiah Wright) who was more than prepared to kill the Libyan people by the tens of thousands:

Young Leaders of Egypt’s Revolt Snub Clinton in Cairo
March 15, 2011 1:17 PM

ABC News’ Kirit Radia and Alex Marquardt report:

A coalition of six youth groups that emerged from Egypt’s revolution last month has refused to meet with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who arrived in Cairo earlier today, in protest of the United States’ strong support for former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak who was ousted by the uprising.

“There was an invitation for members of the coalition to meet Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but based on her negative position from the beginning of the revolution and the position of the US administration in the Middle East, we reject this invitation,” the January 25 Revolution Youth Coalition said in a statement posted on its Facebook page.

A spokesman for Clinton had no immediate response to the snub. Another State Department official, who would not speak for attribution, confirmed such a meeting had been slated for Tuesday and noted that she still plans to meet with members of civil society and transitional government officials during her visit, during which she will urge Egyptians to continue on the path towards democracy.

Mubarak was one of the United States’ strongest allies in the Middle East over successive American administrations. He enjoyed a cozy relationship with top US leaders, which courted Egypt with massive military aid packages as thanks in large part for its support for Israel.

“I really consider President and Mrs. Mubarak to be friends of my family. So I hope to see him often here in Egypt and in the United States,” Secretary Clinton told the Arab language satellite channel al Arabiya during a 2009 interview.

As the revolt strengthened in the streets of Cairo, Clinton was perceived as slow to recognize the strength of the protest movement.

“Our assessment is that the Egyptian government is stable and is looking for ways to respond to the legitimate needs and interests of the Egyptian people,” Clinton told reporters when first asked about the unrest on January 25.

In a separate statement provided to an Egyptian newspaper the youth group said “the US administration took Egypt’s revolution lightly and supported the old regime while Egyptian blood was being spilled.”

Don’t forget Vice President Biden saying Mubarak wasn’t a dictator:

When asked if Mubarak was a dictator, Biden responded … I would not refer to him as a dictator.”

Scratch one former powerful ally in the Middle East.

And as we watch Bahrain begin to topple – and Bahrain is the home of the US 5th Fleet – maybe watch another one, too.

The message is basically that if you hate America, you can retain power by murdering your people.  If you are pro-American, Obama will turn his back on you and you are fair game.

The total repudiation by the Egyptians who won their own freedom in spite of Obama, of course, doesn’t stop Obama’s ideologues for claiming that the entire Islamic world in Cairo and everywhere else owe their freedom to Obama because he gave a stupid speech once in Cairo, of course.  They have long-since immunized themselves from reality.

Even Democrats are acknowledging that Obama is a total Zero in his foreign policy as this disaster spreads across the Middle East:

Senate Democrats were less pointed in their comments, but expressed similar concerns about the Obama administrations handling of the crisis. At one point, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J. lamented all that the international community said but didnt do about the Qaddafi regimes military assault, and wondered aloud whether the presidents national security team was ever serious about trying to shape the outcome of the Libyan conflict.

I read the statements [from administration officials] and I almost get a sense it’s like a Texas two-step, Menendez said. I’m still not sure what we are supporting. It seems to me that it is a dangerous proposition to urge people to seek democracy and revolt and then basically not to help them. And so, you know, I am concerned as I listen to your answers, including what happens if Qaddafi prevailsI think we’re going to miss an opportunity to promote democracy with a small ‘d’ throughout the region, and to be seen on the side of those who have aspirations of that.

Republican Senator Marco Rubio accurately pointed out the fact that:

The United States, quite frankly, looks weak in this endeavor, said Rubio. It looks unwilling, and maybe even unable, to act in this capacity.What are we going to do if theres a bloodbath after this? The president of the United States has specifically said Qaddafi must go, but has done nothing since saying that, except have internal debates about it for a week-and-a half or two.

[…]

So our message to the dissidents, Rubio said, the people with the bravery to stand up to Muammar Qaddafi, and then the people maybe thinking to stand up to the Iranian regime, and in other places, our message is: You guys go ahead and do this stuff, and if we can ever get the Russians or the Chinese to ever come around, we may or may not join you?

Obama is a liar, a fool and a wicked man.  He takes the credit for anything positive whether he deserves it or not.  And anything bad that happens, even entering into his third year as president, is all Bush’s fault.  Meanwhile, he is detached and disaccociated from anything resembling real leadership.  And his golf game and his NCAA brackets are far more important than human lives be they in Libya, Japan or anywhere else.

    The new American foreign policy: You’re on your own, pal! G.W. Bush would never have ignored an entire population revolting against a dictator (Iraq anyone?). This would have been a golden opportunity for the Bush administration to show the public that he’s not just finishing up daddies unfinished business. I believe his heart was in it. It’s just sad that the putrid reputation we have as a nation was brought on by horrible left wing policies. Hilary, you’re a day late and a dollar short. “A” for effort? No, “F” for apathy.

    Bush was hated by the world because he was willing to stand up and fight for American principles such as humanity and democracy.

    Obama was welcomed with adoring cheers.

    Now the world – even the Arab world – is looking around, and nobody is willing to really stand up and do anything. And when they look to America, all there is is an empty suit.

    And the same people who reviled Bush are now missing him.
