Mitt Romney has broken with conservative opinion in his statement on the Egyptian crisis, coming down on the side of the mob of angry Islamists and Barack Obama (see linked article):

First off, Obama is following the lead of President Jimmy Carter, who -- you will recall -- righteously demanded that the Shah of Iran be deposed because he was not democratic enough.

So once the Iranian radical clerics saw that the Shah would get no more support from the US, they moved in for the kill, long knives drawn. This paved the way for the eminently democratic Khomeini, who promptly took the US embassy personnel captive, as a way to say "thanks" to Jimmy Carter.

That went so well that, several years later, the democratic Khomeini's successors eventually chose radical Islamist Akhmadinejad, who hates democracy, as the leader of Iran. Democratic uprisings are put down with an iron hand, but after all, that's no longer important. The US democrats got what they wanted.

So now, Mitt Romney is in turn following Obama's lead in denouncing Mubarak in Egypt because, after 40 years of serving as a valuable go-between for Israel and the rest of the Middle East, why, it turns out he, like the Shah, is not democratic, never has been. Hillary was quick to scold Mubarak for not letting the Islamic radicals have their fun and organize his overthrow on the internet.

I can't wait to see the wonderfully democratic radical Egypt winds up with as Supreme Leader after Mubarak falls.

Once that occurs, remember the names:


And then ask yourself if Mitt is your man in 2012. (But don't forget to save a copy of this article, since Mitt has a habit of flip-flopping on everything as the wind changes directions. One of his favorite lines is "I never said that.")

Here is a brief profile for those not familiar with Mitt and his MO:
