Obama “Dispirited” After Mubarak Snubs Him & Decides to Stay in Office

Barack Obama found President Mubarak’s speech announcing his decision to stay in office “dispiriting.”.



NBC News’ Chuck Todd reports that White House officials say President Barack Obama found Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s speech “extremely dispiriting.”

After making upbeat remarks earlier in the day at a speech in Michigan, in which he said the world was watching “history unfold,” Obama is now expected only to issue a written statement this evening.

“We’ve got to work this carefully,” a U.S. official told Todd. “We’ve got to get this just right.”

Mubarak told the Egyptian people Thursday that,

“And we will prove that we are not servants to anyone and will not be dictated by anyone, and that no will take the decisions for us.”

You know that didn’t go over well with Obama.
