… then you’re not paying attention.
From Barack Obama’s speech today on the revolution in Egypt:
I’m also confident that the same ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit that the young people of Egypt have shown in recent days can be harnessed to create new opportunity, jobs and businesses that allow the extraordinary potential of this generation to take flight.
Really, dude? The people of Egypt just overthrew their repressive, authoritarian dictator of three decades — the dictator who you and your predecessors all supported, by the way — and you deliver the same address you’d give to a bunch of business major jack-offs at the Wharton School?
Are you fucking kidding me?
