Obama declares he lost Egypt as ally; Even Luke Russert slams


Posted on: June 5, 2017

President Obama didn’t just shamefully hit up Sin City while four Americans lay dead after embassy attacks. He also uttered sickening comparisons and took to Telemundo to throw away a 30 year allied relationship. No, really.

Serious ?: If the president of the United States says Egypt is not an ally, how long can annual multibillion aid package be sustained?

RT @BuzzFeedAndrew: ! MT @AnthonyNBCNews: In exclusive @BarackObama tells @jdbalart "I don't think that we would consider (Egypt) an ally"

— Guy Benson (@guypbenson) September 13, 2012

RT @DrewMTips: So Obama just wrote off a 30 year strategic alliance but hey, lets get back to the timing of Romney's statement.

Obama says Egypt not an ally. NBC chief foreign correspondent so stunned he almost has to sit down. http://t.co/6RL4y2fx

That’s right. In an interview with Telemundo last night in Vegas, baby, Vegas, President Obama admitted to losing Egypt as an ally. He declared, on Telemundo, that the U.S. would no longer consider the Egyptian government an ally, “but we don’t consider them an enemy.”

Breitbart.com has more. Even MSNBC was forced to express disbelief.

This morning, on MSNBC of all places, NBC’s chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel obviously didn’t get the memo about protecting The One throughout this crisis and hammered Obama over losing one of three allies America has in the Middle East (Saudi Arabia and Israel being the other two):

CHUCK TODD: I just want to get your first reaction, before you give me a report, of the President saying Egypt was not an ally or an enemy.

RICAHED ENGEL: Yeah, I almost had to sit down when I heard that.  For the last forty years, the United States has had two main allies in the Middle East — Saudi Arabia and Egypt, the other ally in the Middle East being Israel.  For the President to come out and say, well, he’s not exactly sure if Egypt is an ally any more but it’s not an enemy, that is a significant change in the perspective of Washington toward this country, the biggest country in the Arab world.  It makes one wonder, well, was it worth it?  Was it worth supporting the Arab Spring, supporting the demonstrations here in Tahrir Square, when now in Tahrir Square there are clashes going on behind me right in front of the US embassy?

You know what would surely not be worth it? Another four years of this hot mess of a president. Unbelievable. Besides Israel, the United States has two allies in the middle east: Egypt and Saudi Arabia. President Obama’s “smart diplomacy” lost us one of them. And he irresponsibly announced it on Telemundo. Funny what happens when he is off teleprompter, huh?

Citizens are, of course, outraged. And where is the rest of the media?

If we don't consider Egypt an ally or an enemy, what do we consider them then? An allemey? An enelly? Obama foreign policy = FUBAR

Can we stop giving them billions? RT @samsteinhp: Obama to Telemundo on the Egyptian govt.: "I don't think we consider them an ally…."

— Kirsten Powers (@KirstenPowers) September 13, 2012

3) Obama just called Egypt, a country that used to be a significant ME ally, not an ally. Huge blunder.

— AG (@AG_Conservative) September 13, 2012

RT @gnuseibeh: Obama saying that Arab world's largest country is no longer a US ally is a big turning point, for both countries. #Egypt

— Shadi Hamid (@shadihamid) September 13, 2012

We threw our ally Mubarak overboard and Egypt is now our enemy. Great going Obama–Israel is in trouble.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 13, 2012

you're giving taxpayer money to a country (egypt) that you yourself acknowledges as neither an ally or an enemy?! #Obama

— B (@Blynbrady) September 13, 2012

Pure guess but I'd bet there were a lot of people at State and DoD who said, "Whaaaaaat?" upon hearing Obama's "Egypt not an ally" statement

— DrewMTips (@DrewMTips) September 13, 2012

Obama's kneejerk reaction to polls is to declare Egypt "no longer an ally" so… why the Billions in subsidies? "Smart Diplomacy" #FAIL

— DANEgerus (@DANEgerus) September 13, 2012

I hope the press doesn't ask why Obama reversed 33 years of American policy by saying Egypt is not an ally. That would be beyond the pale

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) September 13, 2012

Heh. Of course it would! They real issue is Romney’s statement and all.

Obama announces Egypt, a 30yr strategic ally in most volatile region, isn't an ally and Romney is the story @mmurraypolitics ?

— DrewMTips (@DrewMTips) September 13, 2012

Absurd. The press has reached rock bottom and are at risk of plummeting through the earth’s mantle.

Obama's gaffe-laden week goes pretty much unreported. FP watchers repulsed by Obama's Egypt slight. http://t.co/N6cGHeNL

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) September 13, 2012

Here is how junior high poet Rick Klein, head Obama cheerleader, responds.

big implications here – Obama not sure if Egypt is an ally, warns of "a real big problem" if govt doesn't step up http://t.co/FvqQNSz4

— Rick Klein (@rickklein) September 13, 2012

Romney had rougher day, but Obama could have rougher week explaining world events: http://t.co/kM6UEGh9

— Rick Klein (@rickklein) September 13, 2012

Romney had a rougher day. Because, statement. We have truly fallen down the rabbit hole. President Obama also couldn’t bring himself to say terrorist and couldn’t resist a little football spiking. As four Americans lay dead and as embassies continue to be under attack.

Obama couldn’t bring himself to say “terrorists” just now. #tcot

— RB (@RBPundit) September 13, 2012

Kind of odd for Obama to spike the football again in Vegas, you know with 4 dead Americans on their way home and all.

— DrewMTips (@DrewMTips) September 13, 2012

Obama admin won't call what happened in Libya a terrorist attack, but has no problem saying Republicans "war on women" http://t.co/j2KOnq1I

And credit where it’s due. Luke Russert rounds out the horrifying Egypt statement with some good, old-fashioned snark.

#Present RT: @NBCFirstRead: Obama: Egypt not an ally of US, but not an enemy http://t.co/8U6RoYqf

— Luke Russert (@LukeRussert) September 13, 2012

Indeed. Voting present, once again. The middle east is in turmoil and President Obama is throwing out statements like he isn’t sure if Egypt is an ally, all willy-nilly. Decades of diplomacy down the drain. That’s what Obama calls smart?

3:00 a.m. phone call fail. Again.
