Obama Hears Egyptian Protesters But Not The Tea Party Protesters

Hundreds of thousands of protesters in Egypt take to the streets demanding change from what they perceive to be an unresponsive government. United States President, Barack Hussein Obama is so moved that he calls the President of Egypt urging Mr. Mubarak to step down from his office, perhaps immediately...and assured protesters "we hear your voices"...Think back now to the summer of 2009 when hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Washington DC and cities all across this nation to protest the Obama Healthcare Bill that was passed anyway, against the will of the majority of the American people. Did President Obama take to his all powerful, all seeing, presidential podium and say, "we hear your voices"? No, he didn't...In fact, the White House unbelievably declared that it wasn't even aware of the protest rally that received nationwide coverage in advance of the rally. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said, "I don't know who the group is." While the White House has been telling Mubarak to turn on the internet and cell phones, Obama has been working to have the power to turn our internet and cell phones off. It sounds like someone wants to be a dictator just like Mubarak,


  1. This is one of the most disturbing things to me. We rally and protest, but he doesn't notice us. He demands that Egypt turn on the internet for the people, while he readies his own internet kill switch bill. He wants the people in Egypt to be able to speak freely, while he only wants us to shut up.

  2. Great point. Very well said. I was there in 2009, very proud to say it. Obama best be careful, or this country is next. And they will not be able to control the type of revolution it is, like I feel they think they could.

  3. Have any of you noticed that the media is silent on the kill switch and the comparisons to the Tea Party? I've heard a lot of people say they "hope what happens in Egypt doesn't happen here." I don't think it will happen here but neither did the Egyptians until it happened. I have a feeling that someone or some group is organizing all these protests.

  4. Chris, the Tea Party and the crowds in Egypt are the same? Well, you might be right. Both are the result of angry religious fanatics who come together under questionable leadership.

    The problem is that they have suffered under 30 years of less than democratic government and we had just turned the page on 8 years of the same with Obama's election.

    But if you want to ask about "Hearing the Crowds" what happened when the majority didn't want to invade Iraq? Didn't hear you mention that one yet.


Please keep it clean and nice. Thank you for taking the time to post you thought. It means a lot to me that you do this.
