The Muslim Brotherhood's victory in Egypt's presidential election proves that "the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare," Rep. Allen West posted today on his Facebook page. "A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt," he noted. "We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons." But the prediction has come true, he said, citing the "ominous specter ... of the Iranian Revolution." Now it's time for Obama—aka "the second coming of Jimmy Carter"—to "denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities," he wrote, according to Politico.
