Sending The Message

In light of the uprising in Egypt, the modern American Right have been taking after the Obama administration as one that was "unprepared" and "continually surprised by surprises". Their narrative was one that Obama was and is unable to respond to crisis around the world.

So what happens when the Obama administration begins to utilize modern social-networking to show support for change in the Arabic world? The modern American Right eats what they are spoon fed

Hoping to widen the audience for its mini-pronouncements of U.S. policy amid growing unrest in the Middle East, the State Department has begun sending Twitter messages in Arabic.

The department’s first entry into Arabic language micro-blogging appeared on Twitter early Wednesday. It’s a post saying that Washington recognizes the “historic role” of social media in the Arab world. “We want to be in your conversation,” it said.

The next posts reiterated President Barack Obama’s stance that only Egyptians can decide their future and summarized Vice President Joe Biden’s Tuesday call to Egyptian Vice President Omar Suleiman.

The Twitter account is “USA bilAraby,” which means “USA in Arabic.” It had 40 followers within hours of appearing.

Naturally, this story was met by the fine, patriotic, folks at Fox"Nation" as just another in a long line of stories designed to do one thing and one thing only: to show that Obama is a Muslim and favors a Muslim takeover of America.

But what if it's a story about how Obama wants to communicate their intentions with the American people - another complaint leveled by the modern American Right, as they claim he isn't including us in the "national conversation" regarding issues like the unrest in Egypt?

Just ask Fox"Nation" darling and serial misinformer Jim Hoft:

Just like Hugo Chavez, Barack Obama wants to ram his way onto your television sets.

Maybe when he starts interrupting “Glee” and “American Idol” more people will wake up to this man’s intrusion on our lives.

Castro does this in Cuba too, doesn’t he?

Funny that the movement that demands instant gratification regarding a whole host of issues would be against the Obama administration showing a sense of immediacy, especially considering that's what they ask for on a daily basis.
