Vladimir Putin Makes Obama Look Like The Weak Sister He Is
Coach is Right ^ | April 19, 2014 | Jim Emerson, staff writer

Russian Nationalism

Right After the fall of the Soviet Empire the Russian people felt a little humiliated. They felt like they were living in a beaten nation. Vladimir Putin has slowly been building a sense of nationalism that has resonated with the Russian people. He has put in place policies that have rejected the West’s programs of tolerance and multiculturalism which were working to destroy Russian identity and culture. It came as a shock to the Gay community that, during their protests, the Russian people didn’t care about them one bit. Inside Russia Putin is seen as a hero for standing up to the West over the situation in Ukraine. In a historical context, Russians see Ukraine as a part of Russia. Putin is concerned that if he doesn’t stand up to a weak American president he will be unseated like the former Ukrainian Prime Minister. An analysis of the body language makes it obvious that, when the two men meet, Putin has no respect for the public housing, Kenyan Muslim.

Steadfast

In the face of meaningless threats from Mr. Obama and Mr. Kerry, Russia stood firm. Putin knew he had gotten the better of the Neville Chamberlain of Massachusetts. Russia still maintains the right to intervene militarily in the Ukraine and will undoubtedly annex Crimea. After all, Russian forces are not required to leave the Crimea or withdrawal from Ukraine’s border. This will been seen as Putin standing up against Obama and the European Union and NOT flinching. Any threats from the all talk Obama Regime will have little effect on a man of action. In a recent televised question-and-answer show, Putin identified eastern Ukraine as “Novorossiya” or “New Russia,” while maintaining Russia’s historical claim to the territory.

Dear Putie:

You can have California but we’re keeping Alaska.

But only if you take Waxman, DiFi, and Boxer too.

Comparing John Kerry to Neville Chamberlain is an insult to Chamberlain. Chamberlain, by capitulating to Hitler actually bought England a little time. Kerry and Obama just caved like a house of cards. By the way, did you know that John F. Kerry was a highly decorated Vietnam veteran? Yep. He said so.

I was just thinking this exact thing—how weak Putin makes Obama look. Can anyone imagine Putin saying, ‘I have a pen and a phone?’ Putin probably laughed so hard when Obama said that, he nearly choked. Yet Obama’s advisors actually thought it sounded good. It was supposed to be a comeback line. Instead, it just sounds like something a middle schooler would say. (Though unfortunately he really does give that pen a good workout. & rarely does congress call him on it.)

I don’t know if its even possible but we need to be able to censure the Obama administration and send real diplomats who aren’t afraid to face Putin.

Diplomats who who won’t talk tough from our position of weakness but will talk smart. They’ll need to apply the same diplomacy to the Ukrainians as well.

They're on the same team.

What does, "I can be more flexible after the election," mean to these people?

Baraq & Co. is good at drawing red lines on the map and issuing “strongly worded” statements.

While it’s obvious that Putin is a strong leader with public support while Obama is self centered, weak and even subversive to traditional American values, it doesn’t follow that Putin is a good guy. Putin is a fascist dictator bent on rebuilding the territory of the USSR. Freedom isn’t in his vocabulary. All this hero worship is nauseating.

Telling the truth isn't hero worship and what is truly nauseating is the cartoonish propagandizing for a new cold war that we can't possibly win.

Is a Putin clone what you are looking for to lead America then? The guy is a KGB authoritarian. A dictator in short and I have no plans to live under a dictator regardless of his policies. Obama’s refusal to follow the law and constitution are among the things I hate.

Funny stuff. Like Hitler not believing that Germany lost WWI (they were stabbed in the back), Putin doesn't accept that Russian/Soviet Communism lost the Cold War. Their empire and their death camps were undermined by nefarious means. The collapse of communism was, in his words, "The breakup of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical tragedy of the 20th century." And like the German's who wouldn't accept that they'd lost, there were then people abroad who felt sorry for the defeated (John Maynard Keynes, anyone?), and harshly punished Germans. But the Russian/Soviets for all the harm they'd done the world were never made to pay for their sins. They were welcomed into the fellowship of man and encouraged to have influence except where it involved their more wacky paranoid fantasies about being surrounded.

But as for Putin, and, granted, as a second generation member of the secret Soviet police responsible for oppressing the Russian people and other captive nations to the communists, the collapse of Russian/Soviet communism probably was an awful thing. For the millions who'd lost loved ones in the GULAG, where tens of millions died, or those who would not be going there for all the myriad of irrational reasons, Putin's pining for the police state and its prisons must have seemed callous (not to some FReepers, though, it seems, as I've never had a single one of the FReeper Putinista army suggest that the collapse of the Soviet Union wasn't as Putin saw it).

But let's not waste this Holy Saturday feeling sorry for Putin. He cashed in, as the great opportunist that he is. He found a new gig. Now, he's the Milosovic of Russia, the $75 billion dollar man, possibly the richest man in the world. And, as he tells it a devout Christian.

Well you can’t fight Putin from here and you obviously don’t have it in you to go fight him there so you’re either going to have to suck it up and live with Obama here or fight him here.

I might be too much of a coward to fight Putin but I’d like to meet you. Jerk. Ahole. I said nothing personally insulting to you and yet you come on as a big man over your computer.

No hero worship, just what we are dealing with. The current Administration doesn't have the backbone or character to take him on.

I disagree with the premise in the title. Obama needs no help from Putin in looking weak. He is doing a fine job of that all on his own.
