Family issues - some good, some not, none involving the Super Bowl - require my attention, so, please read Clarice's: The Incredible Lightness of Obama on American Thinker. It is an excellent summary of the Week in Cairo, as well as a reflection on the god-complex causing the Obama administration to ignore judicial rulings they don’t like.
This week saw a showdown between the man whose most significant achievement before 2008 was that he very nearly got the asbestos removed from the Altgeld Gardens tenements in Chicago and the third-longest-ruling head of Egypt since the Pharaoh Ramses, whose reign lasted 67 years. The Egyptian, an 82-year-old with terminal cancer, easily bested the community organizer, the man elected by people who quite clearly confused the last presidential election with an American idol contest. While many who elected the American president probably do not yet realize it, it is lucky for them that he lost the showdown, for had he not, the results would have created worldwide havoc and devastation…
And in an effort to avoid constitutional havoc and devastation, Judge Vincent last week ruled Obamacare unconstitutional based on the Democrats’ either intentional (they wouldn’t dare throw the whole law out!) or unintentional (sloppy, careless) drafting.
Meanwhile, the White House signaled that it intended to ignore the clear language of Judge Vinson's opinion and proceed with implementing ObamaCare. As of Friday afternoon, the government had not filed a motion to stay Judge Vinson's order nor an appeal of his order, and at least two states have telegraphed that they think that ObamaCare is dead in its tracks. Both Wisconsin's and Florida's attorneys general have instructed state agencies to cease work to implement it.
It is the hallmark of the administration thus far: ignore what you don’t like and just deem your wishes to be the law of the land.
The man who in 2009 in Cairo said, "So let me be clear: no system of government can or should be imposed on one nation by any other" was now dictating to Mubarak the kind of government Egypt should have and when it should have it. Mubarak noted only the obvious: that if he stepped down immediately, the situation would devolve into chaos.
Indeed, as things rolled out early last week, what ignoramus could’nt see the reality of chaos theory setting in?
The rulers of Egypt have a stake in its continued existence which supersedes Obama's adolescent moral preening.
Ah yes, our adolescent, moral preening Won:
We have not yet seen a detailed Obama position paper on who should fill what cabinet slots in Egypt or how its constitution might be rewritten, but the man who showed such contempt for our Constitution and laws -- from the appointment of czars and czarinas to the refusal to acknowledge the import of Judge Vinson's ruling -- was surely contending both his right to rule the U.S. and that that right includes the right to rule Egypt.
