Egyptians are furious with President Morsi, who they blame for widespread electricity cuts that are further disrupting businesses, shops, and restaurants at a time of economic hardship.

It's a very unfortunate situation for the Egyptians to be in. It's disgraceful that the government does not take quicker action or prepare for situations like the energy crisis they know always comes. That is indeed something I think they are fair to blame the government for. Not Morsi alone but the government. The subsidies obviously need reconstruction. They must stop subsidizing the cost of all fuel. That's ridiculous! It's no wonder they can't pay the companies for it. (Although we all know the big oil companies have way too much money.) Someone needs to get their head on straight and get in there and DO something proactive! As far as citizens complaining about building power plants and so on near them, well, you have to build the stuff somewhere in order to get power. Unless Egypt decides it can afford clean energy and build "attractive" energy in people's neighborhoods, they're kind of out of luck for now.

I'd say Morsi's days are numbered as the Egyptian economy slowly disintegrates.

Sounds like Morsi and Obama are bed buddies! Neither care about their people!
