Could someone please tell Hosni Mubarak that he is not only embarrassing himself, but he is embarrassing all Egyptians in his elections statements.
When he goes on public record with statements like: Egypt cannot afford to go to war, Egyptians will not find food, drink and services if they go to war ..
This is defeatism to say the least, where is the dignity and pride in being an Egyptian, a country that if managed well can not only feed itself, but can feed the whole Arab world!
Where is the Army that has the lion's share of the Egyptian annual budget?
Mr. Mubarak, Egyptians can and will surprise you.
Another Elections promise is to double the salaries of government employees!!
Is Egypt going to borrow more money to cover this?
Have those employees reached their optimum number and efficiency in productivity? And even if yes, is it wise to overburden the rest of the population ? Can Egypt afford it?
What are the repercussions and how will this reflect on prices?
He will create millions of jobs.. Yeah Right!
He will give away lands.. Whose Land ?
Then what were you doing in the past 24 years? Giving Egyptians telephones that work and new sewer systems? If my grandmother (God rest her soul) was in power she would have achieved more! If Egypt was under foreign occupation it would have seen more progress!!
This is all highly embarrassing, resist the urge to remain in power, be the first Egyptian president to resign, get out alive for a change, stop humiliating yourself and all Egyptians, Please!
