"You have the majority of the poor people, the simple, definitely for the president and for the constitution," Muhammad Rifaa al-Tahtawi, Morsy's chief of staff, told CNN on Sunday.
"You have a majority among the elite who are not for this constitution. Businessmen, media people. They are definitely a small minority, but powerful minority."
During the Iranian revolution, they purged the "elites" -- people who had a college education, or were even literate. When a new government makes a deliberate enemy of businessmen and journalists, you know the future can't be good.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

Yep.. And our gov hasn't learned a damn thing either. Let's see.....We've supported rebels in Egypt and Libya that have turned out to be Al Qaeda thugs.......and now we are turning around and doing the same thing in Syria. Then these Rebs come back and bite us in the ass.

The crowds welcoming Ayatollah Khomeini and Adolph Hitler were about the same as those welcoming Obama in that there were lots of people feeling good, but few with any knowledge of what was about to happen to their country.
Egypt is the same. Given the head start they got in history, Egypt should be home to one of the greatest countries on earth. But no. They struggle and struggle, and throw rocks and firebombs. Is the problem their religious philosophy? Yeah. I think so. The same way that political philosophy was Hitler's problem.
