Sounds like a plan! Through the "Arab Spring", one thing has been constant. Obama has supported whichever side was the most Islamist. In Libya and Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood - backed rebels got the nod. In Iran, the government was supported against the secular people. In Syria, there are two groups fighting Assad; and we are supporting the Islamist, not the secularist, group. Indeed, before Obama was elected, he was in Kenya with his cousin working to instal Sharia law in that country. He says he's a Christian. Maybe so. But he consistently supports Islamist factions, which are hostile to us and our interests. This is a Problem. And if he can get away with just about anything, as a lame duck, I'm afraid he'll try to do just that.

You have to hand it to the leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood. They know how to play power politics. They know how to acquire power. And they know how to use power.

Last Friday, the day before voters by most accounts elected the Brotherhood's candidate Mohamed Morsy to serve as Egypt's next president, The Wall Street Journal published a riveting account by Charles Levinson and Matt Bradley of how the Brotherhood outmaneuvered the secular revolutionaries to take control of the country's political space.

The Brotherhood kept a very low profile in the mass demonstrations in Tahrir Square in January and February...
