Obama as Sphinx

POTUS shows Mubarak the door, without saying so in White House statement during appearance with Canadian PM.

Highlights from Obama and Harper’s presser:

Obama:
U.S. and Canada “are woven together like perhaps no two other countries in the world.”

Egypt “still a fluid situation” and we “oppose violence as a response to crisis.”

Attacks on reporters, human rights activists, peaceful protesters “unacceptable.”

Transition “must begin now” and work towards “free and fair elections.”

“In light of what’s happened in the last two weeks, going back to the old ways is not going to work. Suppression is not going to work.”

“If you end up having just gestures towards the opposition, that’s not going to work.”
