Egypt: Obama's distraction


Many would like to know exactly what is being done in reference to solving our ever worsening jobs problem. You would think that as our continuing loss of jobs is the number one issue in America today, it would be all over the mainstream news. Not so. The fact is unless you are an Egyptian living in America you might as well not bother turning the television on.

This whole Egyptian circus is nothing more than an international distraction which has cost us nineteen days of press coverage for the ongoing crisis in America.
In his second interview with WNYC's Brian Lehrer, cut short because of breaking developments in Egypt, FCIC head Phil Angelides continued to promote circulation of the FCIC's Final Report (which continues to get scant coverage in the media), and called for more aggressive federal action to deal with the continuing foreclosure crisis.

It was probably no coincidence that the Eyptian crisis occurred just as the Angelides report came out.
