Dick Morris continues to push one of Fox News' latest themes with him leading the way -- claiming that President Obama somehow "lost Egypt".

Right-Wing Media Claim Obama "Lost Egypt," But Can't Agree On Why:

Right-wing media outlets have begun claiming that President Obama has "lost Egypt" due to his reaction to the unrest in that country. But they do not agree on whether Obama lost Egypt because he is too supportive of Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak, is not supportive enough, or is doing something else wrong.

Go read the rest from Media Matters. The wingnuts at Fox like Morris here seem to have their talking points confused with the ones they should have been using for Bush and Iraq. They also can't seem to quit fear mongering about how the scary Muslims are out to get us.

Can you help us out?
