February 2, 2011 politisite 0

With this, we’re now officially past the “orderly transition” phase of nudge-nudging. Last night, Obama issued a brief public statement that included just one line about a prospective deadline for Mubarak’s exit from power: “My belief is that an orderly transition must be meaningful, must be peaceful and it must begin now,” Obama said. But White House press secretary Robert Gibbs was more explicit Wednesday. “‘Now’ means ‘yesterday,’” Gibbs explained. […]

February 1, 2011 politisite 0

From The BAZ File: For the Obama administration catching up with the uprising in Egypt is like chasing a runaway locomotive on a bicycle.
