Posted on 03/18/2014 7:24:02 AM PDT by LeoMcNeil
President Obama has issued sanctions against Russia for its de facto annexation of Crimea via a laughable referendum vote. The Presidents sanctions amount to punishment for seven Russians, largely from Putins inner circle. The Russians literally laughed at the sanctions. The Russians actually expected a serious move from Obama. Instead they got an embarrassing half effort. Obama shouldnt have even bothered. At least not bothering would have represented a legitimate policy decision on behalf of the United States. Let Russia govern Russians in Crimea, thats at least a policy. Instead we got a half effort that suggests Obama has no idea what hes doing.

Boris, how can moose and squirrel stop us stealing Crimea?
This reminds me of the Department of Transportation’s ban on curbside check-in shortly after 9-11. Some of you may recall that all flights were grounded for most of the week afterward, so they actually had time to think about it.
What seems to have caused you to excerpt your own blog?
So by making Obama look like a joke, they might make him ticked off enough to actually take a stand.
Putin and Barry are working together. Now that the election is over and Barry has more flexibility, he can play Putin’s puppet.
Russia has all the rights and cause to laugh at the boy king. This dumb-ass we have as a president finds it more opportune (for himself) to be on comedy/talk shows or campaigning/golfing/vacationing than in the WH taking care of business.
Barry’s Love Song to Vlad...
Pull the string and I’ll wink at you, I’m your puppet
I’ll do funny things if you want me to, I’m your puppet
I’ll be yours to have and to hold
Darling you’ve got full control of your puppet
Pull another string and I’ll kiss your lips, I’m your puppet
Snap your finger and I’ll turn you some flips, I’m your puppet
Your every wish is my command
All you gotta do is wiggle your little hand
I’m your puppet, I’m your puppet
I’m just a toy, just a funny boy
That makes you laugh when you’re blue
I’ll be wonderful, do just what I’m told
I’ll do anything for you
I’m your puppet, I’m your puppet
Pull them little strings and I’ll sing you a song, I’m your puppet
Make me do right or make me do wrong, I’m your puppet
Treat me good and I’ll do anything
I’m just a puppet an you hold my string, I’m your puppet
Yeah, I’m your puppet
Walking, talking, living, loving puppet
I’m hanging on a string girl, I’ll do anything now
I’m a walking, talking, living, loving puppet, and I love you
I’m a smiling happy face when you want me to
Even make you happy when you’re feeling blue
It’s like Obama doesn’t care too much about the situation but because he’s the president and everything his advisors told him he has to do something and this is what the team came up with. It seems like there’s a lack of engagement on his part.
How dare they disrespect the first GAY President!
St Paddy's hangover, laddie....too much o the irish (and the Guinness)
Does Obama, and/or the government have the authority to “sanction” individuals? I understand they could proceed with asset forfeiture, but at least there would be a hearing to determine if the money was proceeds from illegal activity. What if Obama decided to sanction the Koch brothers?
I can take a Punch, hate filled curse, but don't laugh at me.
Does anybody understand the huge statement being laughed at represents? I equate it with a shoe in the muslime world.
We Americans should be hanging our heads in shame.
The Russians could respond with sanctions against Michelle’s vacation plans, putting their vacation hot spots and airspace off limits.
I think the sanctions against individuals is an extension of Alinsky. His tactic was to personalize, freeze the subject and ridicule. These fools in the White House are so predictable. And so damned incompetent.
Join the club, Russia.
We've got jackets.
