The supporters claimed that the nation is in deep trouble with corruption, economic failure, endermic unemployment, constitutional crisis, etc, and believe that a dictator will set things right, even if that dictatorship last for years.
Let us reflect upon the lessons of history.
China, a staunch Karl Marx Communist State with Maoist self style repressive dictatorship, began its journey into reforms in 1979, without FIRST reforming the powerful administrative organs of state.
As a result, thanks to authoritarian rule and 'guanxi' ( connections to power), the crony administrators of state grew corruptively rich under dictatorship rule. The legislatives were mere rubber stamps, The judiciary is joke, as the different branches of govt grew fat on authoritarian rule.
Muslims may claim that China is an atheist state, without any divine moral or ethical guidance, thus their failures. They are correct. But then lets look at Islam after the death of Allah's last messenger - prophet Muhammad. Had the Caliphs been any better?
Some of them were truly great, but unfortunately, many more were a horror to the muslims they claim to lead, so much that by Allah's mercy and compassion, the caliphate was destroyed in 1911, just as monarchy was destroyed in the western christian world, where only constitutional monarchies remain.
Prophet Muhammad understood the fallibility of flawed mortals, and thus he refused to give power to any single individual, although he had ALL the time to do so, and hope that his followers will learn to make the right choices by selecting an assembly using moral and ethical guidelines from the sacred Koran to administer to the community, and NOT by the twisted interpretations by mortals known as the 7th century 'Sharia Law' which sole aim is to keep the Caliph as a god-on-Earth and muslims illiterate, at the mercy of others.
The road to Hell is often paved with good intentions. President Mursi may seem to be doing the right thing, but history had proven authoritarianism solves nothing but create even more hate and divisions within the community.
Better leave it to elected legislative parliament, no matter how difficult it may be, or how long it takes. Humans are prone to errors, but do have the capacity to acknowledge and correct errors to progress and evolve. Presuming that full authority by one will solve all problems is only mere fantasy, as proven by history.
Worse will be when the problems grow with the power within one mortal instead of being resolved. All that he had believed in, his judgements, etc, will be taunted in full, and be despised forever as being a fool, as China today, after 30 years of reform, dictatorship and corruption, is despised by the more knowledgeable.
