Bush Congratulates "Elected" Egyptian "Leader"

Posted by Frankie at 9/13/2005 11:24:00 AM

POTUS Bush made time out of his busy day from having to go down in the South and look at poor and black people's homes and get pictures taken with imported firefighters to call up the newly "elected" leader of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak. Mubarak was in power of Egypt for 24 years until they decided to hold an "election" where he fortunately won in a landslide with an amazing 88.5% of the vote. Yet only one out of every four of the nation's 32 million registered voters cast a ballot.
Last Wednesday's election was marred by low turnout, voting irregularities and reports of widespread pressure for people to back Mubarak, one of Bush's strongest allies in the Middle East.
Though Condi Rice thinks this is a good thing:
We encourage Egyptians to build on progress made with this election and to address valid criticisms of the electoral process. In particular, more needs to be done to increase the voice of the people and their confidence in the democratic process.
