Obama to Mubarak - So Long!

Obama Urges Mubarak Not to Run Again

Mr. Obama has told President of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak, that he should not run for another term in elections scheduled for the fall, effectively withdrawing American support for its closest Arab ally, according to American diplomats in Cairo and Washington.

This is the most wishy-washy half assed support that should be expected of the US Government. It says to everyone, yeah, we want to support democracy - but we need our guy to see out his 'term' to keep stability in the region.

If you were expecting Mr. Obama to get on the picnic table and cheer ¡Viva Revolution!, this is as about as close as you're going to get.
