This Drudge Headline Has It All Wrong

This headline on Drudge has it all wrong: Obama will go down in history as the president who lost Egypt

Nope. Obama will go down as the leader of the Progressive movement that worked with the Muslim Brotherhood to topple the Mubarak Dictatorship.

History will judge whether or not enabling the Muslim Brotherhood was a wise thing to do, but if the Progressive left is correct in asserting that doing business with dictators is bad, how can working with Muslim supremacist fanatics can be any better?

Is it not possible to defeat both the dictators and the Islamists? Do we really only have the choice of dictatorship vs. theocracy? That’s the best we can do?
