The constitution has been suspended; elections have been called for; the chief of Egypt's Supreme Constitutional Court will serve as interm president; there have been clashes between Morsi's supporters and the military; Morsi himself denounced the ousting as a "coup."

I, personally, have conflicting feelings.

I'm happy to see Morsi gone as president--he wasn't an improvement on his successor, and he was hopelessly divisive, never trying to compromise and forcing his and his party's stamp on everything.

However, I don't like the chaotic political situation right now in Egypt, and this is just making things even more polarized, and just deepens the gap between Morsi supporters and critics. This, at least in the short term, is going to drive even more very important foreign tourist dollars away; remember, Morsi's handling of the sluggish economy is what the most recent protests were about. I'm also worrying about the precedent this is setting in Egypt, but that may be a more minor issue.

Things are hopeful, and things are troubling.

As usual, the analysts, not the newspapers, have the real story: http://www.stratfor.com...

Just going off of what might be an inaccurate memory, but didn't he pass a law or something that said that no future president can ever undo any of his laws?

Morsi is like an Egyptian Newt Gingrich. I am delighted to see him gone.
