From Peace Broker Hero To Despotic Dictator?

Just a short few days in the past, our Secretary of State was announcing a cease-fire between Hamas, other radical elements and Israel.  The announced hero to handle the ramp down is/was none other than the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader and President of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi.  You can read and see some of the magic show that Hillary Clinton and other champions of Morsi’s good purported good works in the tenuous cease-fire have tried to see instituted:

Morsi’s Miracle

Morsi’s status as a broker for peace and one who might be trusted has not lasted long.  Now we see Morsi copying the dictator he replaced (Hosni Mubarak) in seizing extra-ordinary powers which were to be given to Egypt’s people. His actions now seem to say,  in government, a vacuum is likely to be filled with detritus from a failed action.

Whatever his (Morsi’s) actions actually demonstrate on the issue of his taking more power than the Egyptian citizenry bought into, they have certainly angered many of his supporters, along with his detractors.

New Powers Taken By Morsi

In modern times, perhaps even from our nation’s start, we have trouble picking our way out of bad decisions.  This may be another of those times.
