Sen. Charles Schumer: ‘Serious consequences’ for Russian decision to help Snowden
The Washington Times ^ | Sunday, June 23, 2013 | By David Eldridge

Posted on 06/24/2013 1:22:32 AM PDT by RC one

President Vladimir Putin’s decision to allow Edward Snowden to land in Russia will have “serious consequences” for U.S.-Russian relations, Sen. Charles E. Schumer said Sunday.

Mr. Schumer, New York Democrat, said on CNN that the Russian involvement in the Snowden case, coming as the former national security worker arrived in Moscow on Sunday from Hong Kong, was not the action of an ally.

“The bottom line is very simple: Allies are supposed to treat each other in decent ways, and Putin always seems almost eager to put a finger in the eye of the United States, whether it is Syria, Iran and now of course with Snowden,” Mr. Schumer said. “That’s not how allies should treat each other, and I think it will have serious consequences for the United States-Russia relationship.”

Funny, but that's just about the way I feel about you, Charlie boy.

Who are going to trust?

The Russian mafia and former head of the KGB or a Democratic Senator from the stink hole of New York?

I take the Russian mafioso because Russia be loosening totalitarian controls while New York be tightening totalitarian control.

I do not think there are any food police in Moscow but Bloomberg is trying to establish the food police in NYC.

So... not only are we going to meet with the Taliban... Russia is now our friend? This is being said as we and Russian are arming two different factions in Syria?

This country has no diplomacy or foreign relations... I mean seriously... what a joke this administration is... complete with a bumbling jackass chief executive wthat can’t give a speech in front of the German people without a teleprompter.

I hope the damage being done is reversible... foreign and domestic.

Consequences? In what fantasyland does Senator Turd reside? What consequences, Senator Turd? Do you think you are a senator of a country that still matters? Do you not understand your boss's mission? Which is to cut the United States down to size!

You and the Commander in Chief no longer matter.

Then there is the 2008 presidential election.

President Putin,

Trust us on this one.. you have nothing to fear. Your political forebears would’ve had cause for concern back in the era of Reagan, but America isn’t all that fearsome these days. A country that elects and re-elects Barack Hussein Obama, refuses to defend its own borders, puts 25% of its population on food stamps, wants to unilaterally eliminate its own nuclear force, homosexualizes its military and installs homo activists as Service secretaries isn’t all that dangerous to you and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

Oh, never mind... we saw the onvious disdain you have for Obama... the pics and videos said it all. You already KNEW all that!

Putin comes a whole lot closer to being an ally of the American people than Obama does, so I'm willing to forgive the error.

Maybe Chuckie can take a little stroll out to Brighton Beach area of Brooklyn and spew his rhetoric to his electorate. In fact, I doubt Chuckles has the gonads to do that.

Chuckie started the US on the "Great Recession" road by disclosing the confidential IndyBank letter—just in time for the 2008 election.

To Democrats, this Republic is just a game...

My comment to Chuckles dates back to the 1970’s “Gong Show” and the Unknown Comic:

“Hey, Chuckie-baby, let’s play horse. I’ll be the front end, and you just be yourself!!!!”

Schumer is threatening to exclude the Russian mob from the immigration bill. That would leave the US wide open for the Mexican gangs and Middle East terrorists.

The way Putin is acting, he could be elected President HERE. He is making more sense than our politicians.

I loved when he pointed out that we are supporting rebels who eat the organs of their victims on You Tube. He wondered if it was a good idea to give those people bigger weapons.

Can’t say as I disagree.

My foot.... We have almost no clout on the international stage anymore. We won’t even defend our own diplomats and embassies. We grovel before the Taliban, North Koreans, Russians and Iranians. The Russians and Iranians want victory in Syria while Kerry wants a “negotiated solution.” Welcome to another dimension of O’s “fundamental transformation.”

I wasn't aware that the United States was allied with Russia.

I'd say 6/16/2001, when Dubya said, "I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue. I was able to get a sense of his soul."

I view the dilemma of who to trust in these terms: I'm swimming in a river of urine and someone throws a bucket of pus at me. Should I duck?

We should start a list of potential consequences:

1. No winter solstice greeting card from Chuckie this year.

2. No invitation to Obama’s third inauguration

3. Next time they meet, Obama will only bow halfway.

4. One more misstep and Obama will have to push the reset button again.

5.) Obama will unfriend Putin on facebook
6.) Obama will have Putin called a racist repeatedly
7.) Obama won’t let our astronauts ride along on Russian rockets anymore.
8.) Obama will continue to not build the ballistic missile shield in Poland
9.) Obama will show Putin that he remains as flexible as any spineless jellyfish with regards to reducing our nuclear stockpile
9.) Obama will fly to Russia and personally kill Vladmir Putin just like he did to Osama Bin Laden
