When VP Joe Bidden was asked whether Egypt's President Mubarak should step down, he responded:
"No. I think the time has come for President Mubarak to begin to move in the direction that – to be more responsive to some of the needs of the people out there."
NO, he shouldn’t step down! Really?
And “ THE TIME HAS COME”? Now that Tunisia has fallen and hundreds of thousands are marching through Egyptian cities? Now is the time? Really?
So Mubarak needs to BEGIN to move in that direction? BEGIN?
He needs to be responsive to SOME of the people? SOME?
Very insightful Joe, and spoken like the ultimate politician.
Let’s also note that this has been the only “voice’ of the Obama administration.
