A lot of pundits are punditing about what led Pharaoh Mubarak to take flight from his royal pyramid and hand the reins of power over to the Egyptian military.
Well, they need pundit no longer, because Barack Obama has discovered who was really responsible for the regime change. Turns out it was Barack Obama…
Thus President Obama didn't know what Mubarak was going to say until he said it. And once the US saw that the reaction in the streets of Cairo was one of disappointment and anger, they pushed for more.
"Not to satisfy us," one official tells ABC News, "to satisfy them," the official said, pointing to mass protests in Tahrir Square.
You see? The Obama administration put pressure on Mubarak out of concern for "them," the people who were being killed in the streets with weapons bought with the billions of dollars given the U.S. gives to Egypt for its military. They're almost as magnanimous as Glenn Beck is prognostic.
Not sure I'm buying it completely. I have to believe that eventually we'll discover a much more likely explanation for Mubarak's sudden departure…
There! Obviously, this makes a lot more sense.
