Jimmy Carter came out and said Sunday what many experts in the region believe is now inevitable: Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak will have to go.

Some conservative commentators said that even Carter was shaming Obama by sounding more supportive of Egyptians' freedoms than his fellow Democratic president.

But more common was an equating of Obama's foreign policy with that of Carter - who, after all, is generally considered in Republican circles to be the country's weakest recent president, and the man who lost Iran.

Yes, he blew Iran big-time but he did get Israel and Egypt together after 5,000 years of hostilities, no small achievement. And the treaty has held for over 30 years.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
