Obama continued his defense of the uprising in Egypt during a Feb. 14, 2011 press conference at the White House:

“Well, first of all, without revisiting all the events over the last three weeks, I think history will end up recording that at every juncture in the situation in Egypt that we were on the right side of history.”

At a Democratic National Committee event in Chicago on April 14, 2011, he used the line once more to tout his foreign policy record:

“Now, part of the hopefulness and the anticipation we all felt that night in Grant Park was also about what we could do to secure and restore America’s standing in the world. So that’s why we strengthened our alliances. We signed historic arms-control agreements, secured loose nuclear materials. That’s why we’re on the right side of history now throughout the Middle East, because we believe in preventing innocents from getting slaughtered, and we believe in human rights for all people.”
