P.J. Crowley and "deeper democracy"

This non-expert on the Arab world was pontificating about Egypt on BBC News. He was justifying the military coup in Egypt on the grounds that the cup will produce "deeper democracy." Kid you not.  He said that Morsi did not put women in positions of power in Egypt, as a justification for overthrowing him.  Does that mean that opposition in the US has a good reason to overthrow Obama in cooperation with the military?
