    Wolfe, I read recently that the Prez gave the Senate & the House raises
    He also gave me a SS raise of $9.
    Did we all get the same amount?
    I'd gladly return my $9. if they'd return their's

    Does any one really believe what Morsi is saying?!!!!! He lies through his teeth....He hijacked our country with his gang of mobsters for their own agenda....with the help of the US he is destroying our beloved Egypt....doesn't the American Administration have any conscience to stop those maniacs from ruining our country for generations to come!!!!!!

    I wish Wolf was living in Egypt so we can hear the same words from Morsy. I wonder why Morsy's speeches to public are coming from completely different personality. Please Mr Wolf,apply for Egyptian citizenship

    Fascinating interview with Morsy..but no matter what question Wolf raised about Israel, the Egyptian president completely failed to ever even mention the name of Israel or its President or Prime Minister. I bought a map of the Middle East many years ago while traveling in Egypt, and there was a tiny white, unnamed triangle of land where the State of Israel exists. Apparently the attitude has not really changed. Morsy has plenty of glowing remarks about peace and the rights of Palestinians, with which i wholeheartedly agree. Too bad he cannot take a leadership role as did President Sadat and state, without any hesitation or indirect references, a strong stand for the rights of Israel and its people too.

    I'm going to change networks. Maybe Fox. When Piers Morgan goes back to England I may return to CNN. I really like Wolf and The Situition Room. I remember the last time the British tried to give us advice.
