Performance proceeds democracy?

Mr. Friedman seems to think so.

Friedman supports the military coup in Egypt.

The logic goes, Morsi, the Islamist guy who was toppled by the military, wasn’t good for Egypt and neighbors, and the situation dictated that there was no time to spare for the next round of elections, three years down the road. Damn with the process; damn with democratic principles, if the guy ain’t good and isn’t performing as expected, he has got to go by any means necessary, is the thinking, outlined by Mr. Friedman.
