Somebody help me out here. As near as I can tell, conservatives are now obsessed by the Muslim Brotherhood and the possibility that it will gain power in Egypt. And, in some vague way, they seem to blame the Obama administration for this possibility. But at the same time, they’re four square in favor of dumping Hosni Mubarak and turning Egypt into a real democracy, and they vaguely blame the Obama administration for not being forthright enough about this as well.
So…..what’s the conservative plan? Does anyone know? How are we supposed to (a) dump Mubarak, (b) support democracy, but (c) ensure that the Muslim Brotherhood is kept on the sidelines? Who’s the go-to conservative if I want to know what their plan is?
The “plan” here is the same “plan” that conservatives have used since January 20, 2009: assert the opposite of whatever Obama says, and damn the consequences. Consult today’s Onion for another example.
