Gibbs: U.S. Doesn't Determine Who's on Egypt's Ballot

There are a lot of people siding with the Egyptian people without even knowing the Egyptian people or what they want in their leaders. There are a lot of people who say the U.S. should call for Mubarak's resignation. In other words, there is a lot of noise out there, a lot of people with opinions that have no knowledge of Egypt or the Egyptian people. It's amateur hour. Our media seems to have been blindsided by the protests as well.
Saw this tweet by Marc Ambinder, which seems fitting: "Iraqify" = to impose a Western version of liberty on another country w/ little regard to the circumstances of the country.
