Stop Apologizing….

Pawlenty: Obama ‘appeases’ Brotherhood

The closest a 2012er has gotten to talking about Egypt, in Tim Pawlenty’s generally well-received CPAC speech just now:

So when the United States of America projects its national security interests here and around the world, we need to do it with strength! We need to make sure that there is no equivocation, no uncertainty, no daylight between us and our allies around the world.

The current administration doesn’t seem to understand this principle. We undermine Israel, the U.K., Poland, the Czech Republic, and Colombia, among other friends. Meanwhile, we appease Iran, Russia, and adversaries in the Middle East, including Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Mr. President, with bullies, might makes right. Strength — makes them submit. Get tough on our enemies — not on our friends. And, Mr. President, stop apologizing for our country.

The bullies, terrorists and tyrants of the world have lots to apologize for. America does not.

The Egypt crisis isn’t going to resolve itself soon, and the criticism that the U.S. should — somehow — be ensuring that the Brotherhood doesn’t join any transition process or new government is likely, I think, to emerge as a major Republican theme.
