      At least this guy was elected. Who are we to criticize the Egyptian people because the new government they fouht for is not up to our version of snuff?

        Electing a new dictator. They elected a President to work with their legislature and finish a new constitution. I don't think declaring himself, and his cronies, above the law was part of what most Egyptians thought they were buying. But I'm not an Egyptian, maybe that is what the party in Tahrir Square was all about.
