Canute in the oval office

 If I remember correctly the liberal establishment was reviling George Bush for attempts at nation building. Now, because his favored friends in the Moslem Brotherhood have been rejected by young ,educated Egyptians , women ,those of  persecuted religions and gay people. He  and cohorts in congress are threatening to cut off aid to Egypt. This is a blatant attempt at nation building. Demanding in his statement that Eygpt hew to a democratic form of government which was rapidly becoming a theocratic state he is ignoring reality and the best interest of the United States which he is sworn to protect. Egypt as an allay is important to us and interfering with the government that is not supportive of jihadism is not in our interest. A theocratic state in the middle east is plainly inimical to our interest
