Boehner, GOP Support Cautious Approach To Egypt Protests

February 1, 2011 by  

Boehner, GOP support cautious approach to Egypt protestsAlthough the GOP has amassed a laundry list of complaints regarding President Barack Obama's job performance, Republican leaders have praised the White House for its cautious approach to the growing unrest in Egypt.

Many critics, including some Democratic lawmakers, have urged the President to call for the end of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak's 30-year reign. However, Obama and his cabinet — including Secretary of State Hilary Clinton — instead have advocated for an "orderly transition that is responsive to the aspirations of the Egyptian people.”

Appearing on FOX News Sunday on Jan. 30, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said that now is not the time for the United States government to be calling for a new leader in Egypt.

"The administration, our administration, so far has handled this tense situation pretty well," Boehner told the news provider. "Clearly, reforms need to occur in Egypt."

According to media reports, more than 100 people have died since the protests commenced last week. Mohamed ElBaradei, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient in 2005, emerged as an unofficial leader of the resistance movement over the weekend. On CBS' Face the Nation, ElBaradei said that Obama and the U.S. government "is losing credibility by the day" by giving "life support to the dictator."
