From the reich wing nut HuffingtonPost (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/08/18/obama-mubarak-meet-to-rep_n_262194.html):

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON President Barack Obama won lavish praise from his Egyptian counterpart on Tuesday and spoke of an "extraordinary opportunity" for making peace in the Middle East, saying he was encouraged by U.S. efforts to restart talks between Israel and the Palestinians.

Seated next to President Hosni Mubarak, who was making his first visit to the U.S. capital in five years, Obama thanked his Egyptian counterpart for joining him in trying to construct a deal that has eluded world leaders for more than six decades.

Returning the compliment, Mubarak asserted that Obama's speech to the Muslim world delivered in Cairo earlier this summer had convinced Arabs the United States truly was an honest broker.

The 81-year-old Egyptian leader, who was estranged from the Bush administration, said Obama had "removed all doubts about the United States and the Muslim world." </div></div>

2009: Obama and Mubarak praise each other, and the left says it was good.

From the whacked out conservative Associated Press (http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,158326,00.html):

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">WASHINGTON President Bush prodded Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (search) on Wednesday to provide a model for other Mideast nations to follow by holding genuinely democratic and contested presidential elections. ...

Bush reiterated his demands on the Egyptian process: allow people to vote without intimidation; allow the opposition to campaign on television, whether state-owned or not; allow people to carry signs advocating for or against all candidates; and count every vote. The president has also called for international monitors.</div></div>

2005: Bush pushed Mubarak to move towards freedom for his nation ... in case anyone was wondering why Egypt and the US were estranged.

The left looked upon this with hate and condemnation.

From the rabid wild eyed wing nut William Jefferson Clinton:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> I am delighted to welcome my friend President Mubarak and his delegation from Egypt back to the White House to reaffirm the close partnership between the United States and Egypt. <span style='font-size: 11pt'>Under the wise and courageous leadership of President Mubarak</span>, Egypt has been a key partner with the United States in working to build both regional security and global peace.

I commend him for his vision and his dedication. Nowhere has that been more crucial than in Egypt's own region. ...

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>We are proud to stand with you, and I am proud to stand with you as we work together in the future. I thank you for your wise counsel, your strong leadership, and your iron determination. And we're glad to have you here.</span> </div></div>

1996: Clinton embraced Mubarak and his policies, and the left smiled upon them and blessed them.

OH DEAR! (http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php?pid=53134)

2011. Both Mubarak and the radical Muslim Brotherhood are emboldened by an obviously weak Obama.

Egypt descends into a darkness that nobody can predict how it will emerge from.

The far left smiles upon it and sees that they are told to believe this is good.

No, they didn't. You're making that up.

Generally, that may be true.

Specifically, in this case, it's probably not what they did.

Any criticism of a push for a dictator to become more democratic and more honest would have been welcomed by the left, and the only criticism I can imagine from that quarter would have been an expression of doubt that he was serious or would really do anything to make that happen.

- Then why did the left go into apoplectic fits that we simply must end sanctions against Iraq?

- Then why does the left to this very day have such admiration for Mao?

- Then why does the left sport Che tees across the fruited plain?

- Then why did the left refer to Khomeini as an "ISLAMIC GANDHI?"

- Then why did the left swoon over Uncle Joe Stalin?
