The law is the law, except when Obama doesn't want to enforce it.

If we call the coup a coup, Obama cannot give Egyptian Army any more of your money.

Don't you believe that Obama was sending American money to Morsi and his band of radical Islamists?
What makes you think the Egyptian Army needs America's money to deter radical Islamists?

remember the caveats put on that aid, that was again going to go mostly to the military, that obama stipulated?

facts are fun!

who else is going to fund the military there? the failed Egyptions economy?

real world discussions are fun! you should try one sometime...

Bush did cut brush. He went to Crawford 51 times costing the American tax payer 21 million dollars. Obama goes to Africa and it cost the American people 100 million dollars in one trip.

If Obama had a son, he would name him DeVille.
But he was completely wrong about Egypt.
WHY?
Because he's an IDIOT.

The only transparency coming from Øbama is how mind-numbingly stupid he is for thinking any American with an IQ above 70 thinks it was anything other than a military coup. It is identical to the Benghazi situation when Øbama told us that it was a video that killed Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

Øbama has a spine made of jell-o in matters of foreign policy.
