Niall Ferguson Says Obama Blew Egypt
Not being George W. does not a policy make, says Niall Ferguson.
Prior to hearing Ferguson, Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough thought Obama did pretty well with the situation, however Ferguson passionately attempted to convince them otherwise. Brzezinski claimed “looking at all the different reports coming in, and the pictures, and the peacefulness on the streets of Cairo, so far so good it actually seems like it went pretty damn well.”
Ferguson responded “I wished I shared your confidence” and attempted to teach Brzezinski a history lesson suggesting “anybody who counts this as a major breakthrough for United States foreign policy, hasn’t got a clue about what happens in the wake of a revolution like this.”
It was flip, followed by flop, followed by flip, says Ferguson.
