What’s the Conservative Plan?

Somebody help me out here. As near as I can tell, conservatives are now obsessed by the Muslim Brotherhood and the possibility that it will gain power in Egypt. And, in some vague way, they seem to blame the Obama administration for this possibility. But at the same time, they’re four square in favor of dumping Hosni Mubarak and turning Egypt into a real democracy, and they vaguely blame the Obama administration for not being forthright enough about this as well.

So…..what’s the conservative plan? Does anyone know? How are we supposed to (a) dump Mubarak, (b) support democracy, but (c) ensure that the Muslim Brotherhood is kept on the sidelines? Who’s the go-to conservative if I want to know what their plan is?

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
