"The Internet" loses its grip on power. President Mubarak is absolutely correct.

Tell the Boy Scouts in Tahrir Square they won as many concessions as they are going to win.  They need to return to their lives and continue to anticipate open and transparent elections whereby their devoted President Mubarak, nor any of his family will be running.  He is instituting "Marshall Law" and I support that.  The country has to return to a 'stable and normal status' to inherent the powers of a democracy.  THERE IS NO INFRASTRUCTURE in place for President Mubarak's resignation.  HE IS NOT NIXON! 
The reason Egypt is a powerful peace partner is BECAUSE of President Mubarak.  The focus HAS to shift to 'quality of life' of the Egyptian people and NOT a change in power.  To that end the USA needs ot chnage its policies to focus on the people and NOT the military.

The 'legacy of Middle East evil' as mapped out by Bush and Saddam DOES NOT EXIST. 

This is insane.  Mubarak is not a monster.  The MIDDLE EAST and its inherent nature is the problem.  He is trying to carry out the will of the people while protecting them.  How proud would any Western Civilization be if after a month from his resignation there were blood baths in the streets? 

The 'free media' has more issues than they are willing to face ! 

This should NEVER have been a 'black and white issue.'  EVER.  There is entirely too much 'grey' in this transition and it has to proceed well to a 'clear and discernable' end.

Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak said (click title to entry - thank you) in a national address Tuesday evening that he will not step down until a new president is selected in elections scheduled for September.

Saying a peaceful transfer of power is underway, Mr. Mubarak refused to give in to demands of tens of thousands of anti-government protesters who took to the streets for a 17th straight day.

It is the second time in two weeks that Mubarak told the nation he will stay in office until September....

No one is pointing a finger at extremist groups eithre.  We all know the beginnings of this and it is about as innocent as it comes.  The country is not ready for the transition.  It is just that simple.  The Western Media needs to point out the 'greatness' of this Egyptian President and his devotion to transitioning Egypt as he also marshalled peace with Israel.  GROW UP !

If there are deaths and riots leading NOWHERE, we all know where to look!

Sen. Kyl Retiring to Give 'Others a Chance'

It would appear as though the USA is also seeing transitions as well. Let's hope this goes just as well. I never thought I would ever see the day. The Dems need to at least put their best foot forward. Kyl has been sliding in the polls since his last election. He could be elected again, but, he was reaching 'a margin' where that might not be the case, either.

President Mubarak has been a dedicated leader to Egypt. Today is no different.

I congratulate Egypt on their transition to an openly democratic government. It will be the second democracy in the Middle East.

The military has proven themselves to be capable of the restraint necessary to provide further stability during these uncertain times.

We are all watching and hoping for the best.

Lee actually resigned? That has a first for the GOP.

Lee issued a statement that, in part, reads: "It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Western New York.  I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents.  I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness. "...
