#1 Bouyed up by his success in effecting a ceasefire in Gazoo, President Mohamed Morsi has acted the wrong way -- he has given himself sweeping powers in a move that the opposition calls "a coup against legitimacy"

He was going to do it sooner or later. This was the perfect time; essentially cutting the White House off at the knees.

#2 Or perfect timing, depending on your point of view. It's best to get the change in reality out of the way now and by the end of the next four year cycle it'll be old news.

#3 SM is right. Do it now before the idea of democracy really takes hold and it will be a 2hr. story.

Everyone in Egypt will forget that there might have been a difference quickly enough.

Well maybe the Copts won't but they won't be around much longer.

#4 I wasn't talking about the Egyptian elective cycle alone.
