July 03, 2013 Statement by President Barack Hussein Obama on Egypt

Statement by President Barack Obama on Egypt

 

Statement by President Barack Obama on Egypt

As I have said since the Egyptian Revolution, the United States supports a set of core principles, including opposition to violence, protection of universal human rights, and reform that meets the legitimate aspirations of the people.  The United States does not support particular individuals or political parties, but we are committed to the democratic process and respect for the rule of law.  Since the current unrest in Egypt began, we have called on all parties to work together to address the legitimate grievances of the Egyptian people, in accordance with the democratic process, and without recourse to violence or the use of force.

 

The United States is monitoring the very fluid situation in Egypt, and we believe that ultimately the future of Egypt can only be determined by the Egyptian people. Nevertheless, we are deeply concerned by the decision of the Egyptian Armed Forces to remove President Morsy and suspend the Egyptian constitution. I now call on the Egyptian military to move quickly and responsibly to return full authority back to a democratically elected civilian government as soon as possible through an inclusive and transparent process, and to avoid any arbitrary arrests of President Morsy and his supporters. Given today’s developments, I have also directed the relevant departments and agencies to review the implications under U.S. law for our assistance to the Government of Egypt.

 

The United States continues to believe firmly that the best foundation for lasting stability in Egypt is a democratic political order with participation from all sides and all political parties —secular and religious, civilian and military. During this uncertain period, we expect the military to ensure that the rights of all Egyptian men and women are protected, including the right to peaceful assembly, due process, and free and fair trials in civilian courts.

 

Moreover, the goal of any political process should be a government that respects the rights of all people, majority and minority; that institutionalizes the checks and balances upon which democracy depends; and that places the interests of the people above party or faction. The voices of all those who have protested peacefully must be heard – including those who welcomed today’s developments, and those who have supported President Morsy. In the interim, I urge all sides to avoid violence and come together to ensure the lasting restoration of Egypt’s democracy.

 

No transition to democracy comes without difficulty, but in the end it must stay true to the will of the people. An honest, capable and representative government is what ordinary Egyptians seek and what they deserve. The longstanding partnership between the United States and Egypt is based on shared interests and values, and we will continue to work with the Egyptian people to ensure that Egypt’s transition to democracy succeeds.

 

 

Take note women, people of color, LGBTQ members and anyone who feels a need to assemble & protest….Egypt understands how it’s done….

It’s A Mandate…..Stupid.


By Jueseppi B.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Won, Get Over It

 

Susan Milligan is a political and foreign affairs writer and contributed to a biography of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, Last Lion: The Fall and Rise of Ted Kennedy.

 

One would think that with re-election—by an Electoral College landslide, notably—people would finally accept that President Barack Obama is the leader of the country. But still, despite the failed efforts of the birthers and Donald Trump and everyone else who just couldn’t imagine that a majority of voters said Obama should be president, the efforts to discredit Obama persist.

 

 

Almost immediately after Obama was re-elected (becoming only the fifth president in U.S. history to win a majority, and not just a plurality, of the popular vote twice), the self-anointed realists declared that Obama had no “mandate.” Never mind those 332 Electoral College votes, never mind the fact that he managed to win re-election despite residual racism and a general unhappiness with the slowness of the economic recovery.

 

 

It was deemed that because Obama won by just three percentage points in the popular vote, that he somehow had no right to assume he had earned the authority to lead. This argument is especially remarkable when one considers the comments made by disgraced former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, who said after the GOP had taken majorities in both chambers under President George Bush that since the Republicans controlled the White House, the House, and the Senate, “we control the agenda.” Not much room there for cross-party compromise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In remarks on the Senate floor, the top Republican in that chamber argues against a mandate for President Barack Obama after his reelection last week.

 

 

 

“In politics, there is always a temptation among those who win office to think they have a mandate to do what they will,” McConnell will say, according to prepared remarks. “But it’s important to remember that in this case the voters also re-elected a Republican-controlled House last week, and a closely divided Senate. And in a government of three equal branches, that’s hardly irrelevant. Most people may focus on the White House, but the fact is, the government is organized no differently today than it was after the Republican wave of 2010.”

 

 

The top Senate Republican contends that Americans are “wary” of what Obama might do in a second term. “Look out across the heartland, and you’ll see vast regions of the country wary of the President’s vision for the future. The country is sharply divided about the right path forward.  If the President wants to unite America, as he has always claimed to, if he truly realizes that he was elected to represent all of its citizens, not just the ones who voted to give him a second term last Tuesday … then he’ll seek the common ground he avoided so strenuously in his first term. That’s his task. That’s the duty that comes with being President.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mitch McConnell is a fool, an idiot, a moron and a flaming racist ass. That’s a fact. 332 electoral votes for POTUS Obama against 206 electoral votes for Willard Romney.

 
States Carried: POTUS Obama-26 + D.C.  Romney-24

 
Popular vote totals: 62,307,405 (50.6%) Votes for POTUS Obama……..58,938,376 (47.8%) Votes for Willard Romney.

 

 

Thats a mandate all day long…..Stupid.

 

 

Turns Out Romney Is the 47 Percent Candidate

 

John Nichols

 

The 2012 election produced more than its share of ironic results, but there is one that will stand above all others: Mitt Romney is the candidate of 47 percent of the American electorate.

 

As the long count of ballots cast in last Tuesday’s presidential election nears completion, Barack Obama’s popular-vote margin over Romney continues to expand. The Democratic president’s percentage of the vote has been steadily rising. As this has happened, his Republican challenger’s percentage has fallen.

 

Whereas on election night conservative commentators could speak of the finish to the long and bitter campaign as “almost a tie,” Obama now has a 3.4 million popular-vote, and 50.57 percent of the total.

 

Romney has drifted down to… 47.84 percent.

 

President Obama Friday claimed an election mandate to raise the richest Americans’ taxes before across-the-board hikes push the country back into recession next year.

 

“I’m not wedded to every detail of my plan. I’m open to compromise,” Obama said in the East Room of the White House.

 

“But I refuse to accept any approach that isn’t balanced. I am not going to ask students and seniors and middle-class families to pay down the entire deficit while people like me making over $250,000 aren’t asked to pay a dime more in taxes,” he said.

 

America has never been about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. That’s the principle we were founded on.

 

~ President Barack Obama, November 7, 2012~

 

 

Sounds like a mandate to me.

 

Let’s not forget…..It’s Still Barack’s House.
