‘we are witnessing history unfold’

President Obama watched Hosni Mubarak’s speech to Egyptians from the conference room on Air Force One, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs tells the pool. Obama is now headed to the White House for a meeting with his national security team, moments after Mubarak said he wouldn’t step down but that he had given some powers to his vice president.

    “Orderly and genuine transition” … thank goodness it has been that way, can you imagine if there was bloodshed or chaos?

      IMO, CTGirl,

      Chaos is what the republicans seem to have been silently rooting for in order to have the opportunity to say that the president is not doing his job, but what we have in Egypt is a peaceful protest that is bearing fruit. For all of those who were saying that the president should have taken a different approach to the situation, I say shut up. They’re always standing on the outside looking in and trying to dictate policy to PBO who has all of the inside access to information and knows what is going on better than the pundits, politicians, and members of the MSM. I had to stop listening to them to protect my sanity. PBO is well-suited to handle the challenges of the job, and he keeps proving it time after time.
