Skip to comments.Video: Obama’s Weakness on Ukraine Mirrors 2008 Invasion of Georgia
Posted on 02/28/2014 6:15:56 PM PST by therightliveswithus
In August 2008, Senator Barack Obama made an impromptu statement about the invasion of Georgia by Russia which had happened earlier in the day. A clearly bothered Obama was about to leave for vacation in Hawaii and his statement was jumbled and at points contradictory.
Today, he made a similar statement about Putins invasion of the Crimea. While Obamas speech was without as many stutters, it was still hollow on rhetoric and without the emphasis to prevent further Russian actions. To paraphrase Charles Krauthammer today: Obama told the world that he would take no serious action to check Russia.
Taking a look at both statements shows why Putin thinks that he can get away with a 2008 redux.

he got elected... now he’s ‘more flexible’
Obamas Weakness on Ukraine Mirrors 0bama’s Life of Weakness.
The 3am call is ringing!............................................. And we know what is happening as he sits there and listens while thinking to himself. “What am I suppose to do?” You can’t OJT a President, there is a lesson to be learned here but too many voters are so completely stupid, they can’t comprehend the truth of what is actually happening with our OJT president.
and keep in mind,everyone who voted for Obama thinks Georgia is a state,and thought it was alabama and florida trying to invade Georgia in 2008.
Obama is the Roman decadence emperor of weaknesses... always attacking from weakness and trying to fool others down to his level of incompetence. It works in America with the lofo brainwashed media, but not abroad.
He is making himself a weak threat, something speeding up the demise of America by accepting getting nuked.
He is weak and dangerous. He should say nothing and spare the empty threats knowing that if he gets his a$$ kicked he will do nothing to fight back.
it is all pompous air that the idiots in government love and call hope.
He is a nut.
Yes, that is right. He is weak by design.
My favorite quote of Obama is “Don’t call my bluff!”. And yes, he actually did say it without the slightest comprehension that he was being an absolute idiot.
Albert Brooks: Did Obama just declare war or wish us a good weekend?
He is going to get away with it. Pootey has been planning this for 5-6 years. He’s not about to let anything endanger his naval port on the Black Sea. He will prolly get Crimea and it will split the Ukraine just like he got Osettia split off from Georgia.
The people of Crimea want to be with Russia. They speak Russion, they are Russian and they want to be part of Russia. The Ukranians hate Russia and they want to align with the EU. So be it.
The Crimean Tatars who were deported by Stalin in WWII wouldn't like it, and they are Muslim.
