Another perspective

I've heard another perspective on the prez's latest actions.  Some argue that this is the only means by which Morsi could have supported the revolution.  The Judiciary disbanded the Parliament earlier this year, and supposedly were planning on disbanding all popularly elected bodies, leaving Morsi the lone representative of the revolution against a government of the old regime.  Apparently,  the attorney general was appointed by Mubarak and Morsi had tried to fire him several times, and he refused to leave, so this was why he chose to lessen the power of the Judiciary.  His back was up against a wall.  Some are complaining that the liberals, who have called for protests are being babies, and need to accept when things don't go their way, if it is a result of fair elections.  The issue is clearly complicated. I personally am still very concerned, about the fact that Morsi has no checks to his power.  Muslim Brotherhood or not, that isn't how democracy works, for anyone.  But it is reassuring that he may have good intentions.  Maybe.  As for the liberals being babies, Egypt has a strong recent history of politicians boycotting things when they don't like the rules or results on both sides of the spectrum.  I often question how productive this tactic is, but it looks to me like the liberals turn has come around.
