Kaine Gives Obama Credit for Russian Ceasefire
Accuracy in Media ^ | 08/13/08 | Don Irvine

Posted on 08/13/2008 1:21:01 PM PDT by freespirited

 

Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine who is under consideration as a possible running mate for Barack Obama gave the Senator credit for the Russian ceasefire in Georgia.

From ABC News' Jake Tapper.

"The Senator's goal was to be tough and smart," Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine said of Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, "and so when the action (in Georgia) happened on Thursday, he immediately called for a ceasefire, condemned the unwarranted use of force by Russia.  It was a bad crisis for the world.  It required tough words, but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in -- and I'm very, very happy that the senator's request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.”

Yeah, right.

I’d like to thank my Dad as well, since he too called for a ceasefire.

Only one problem - so far, at least 24 hours after that claim was made, there is no cease fire.

“Tough Words” can stop a mech battalion? Who knew? Maybe the Pentagon needs to look into this? Perhaps we need to draft Harvard Law into a Rapid-Reaction unit?

No, it’s not Scrappleface. You know that podium Obama had, with the fake seal attached to it? Kaine was the one inside that podium. On his knees.

It is almost certainly the latter.

Tim Kaine is a jackass.

That’s fine. I guess by extension we can also blame Obama for the fact that the cease fire has lasted all of about half a day.

On top of that, considering that the Russians haven’t lived up to their end of the bargain and are the ones who have violated the cease fire (thereby validating McCain’s harsh criticism of Moscow), I think Obama’s team would be better off here if they just STFU.

I requested a cease-fire yesterday.

Why am I not receiving the credit I so richly deserve?

Any tough words from Baraq came a full day AFTER he had said both sides were at fault, and that the Security Council (where Russia has a permanent veto) should take this matter up immediately. What a useless wanker!

BODS (Barack Obama Derangement Syndrome)

A syndrome that causes sufferers to attribute positive events and "changes" to Barack Obama, when they have absolutely nothing to do with him. Sufferers also tend to show obsession with words "hope" and "change" and tend to be extremely thin skinned towards criticism.

Uh, the Obamessiah might want to rain down fire and brimstone on Vlad the Inhaler since the Russian leadership has apparently decided to follow the guidance of the man down below.

Is he also giving him the blame since Russia apparently hasn't actually ceased firing?

No, of course he won't.

The only reason that this isn’t funny is becase of the Georgians that Russia is STILL killing.

What an idiot on many levels. I certainly hope Kaine is the DNC VP nominee.

I talked about a ceasefire before both you and Obama did, so I, and I alone, am the one who deserves the credit!!!

Hey - it’s the opposite of “Bush’s Fault!”

Bad - Bush’s Fault
Good - Obama’s Accomplishment

Maybe Obama can surf eBay for some geopolitical clout. I hear you can pick up damn near anything on that site.
