Don't spoil a good analysis

Reader comment on item: Turmoil in Egypt

Submitted by Mike Berger (South Africa), Feb 1, 2011 at 01:45

I don't understand why you spoil a good analysis by a meaningless and misleading swing at Obama at the end. I followed your link and read his speech which seemed to be a reasonable blend of caution and identification with people's aspirations. Of course the Islamists can exploit the situation but it is difficult to see what Obama could have said which would diminish that possibility without appearing to side with tyranny and corruption.
