Barack Obama makes basic error over balance of power in Kremlin
President Obama has made his first mistake in Russia even before he arrives in Moscow today. His attempt to cast Vladimir Putin as yesterdays man and to drive a wedge between the Prime Minister and President Medvedev demonstrates a misreading of relations in the Kremlin.
Mr Medvedev is in office but not in power and whether he becomes President in more than name depends on Mr Putins support and intentions. Mr Medvedev may represent a more accommodating face of Russia but this is only because Mr Putin wants him to.
Mr Obama declared: I think that its important that even as we move forward with President Medvedev that Putin understand that the old Cold War approaches to US-Russian relations is outdated . . . Putin has one foot in the old ways of doing business and one foot in the new. That suggests that Mr Medvedevs outlook differs from that of his mentor despite a lack of evidence. Mr Putin is not known as a bad judge of character and he himself described his successor as no less a Russian nationalist than I am.
Mr Putins dominance was evident at the start of last years war in Georgia, when he directed operations in South Ossetia. Foreign relations are also the responsibility of the President. But Mr Putin has been an active globetrotter and does not hesitate to involve himself in policy in a way that would have been unthinkable for any of his prime ministers.
He told Japanese leaders during a recent visit that Tokyo would have to meet Moscows terms for a formal peace treaty ending the Second World War, adding that Mr Medvedev would raise the issue at next weeks G8 summit..

"He's a fish-eyed fool!"
Press the reset button, Ears!
Reset, or "overcharge" button like HR Clinton gave them?
"You got it wrong."
Which one? “Never get involved in a land war in Asia”? Or “Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line”?
Hmph. Heads in rectal defilade. According to Fox news radio today Obama scored a "breakthrough" in nuclear disarmament negotiations today. What a guy. all by himself. Only took about fifteen minutes probably.
If Bush had made such an error, you’d be hearing about it 24/7 on all the cable networks.
But Obama? Not a peep.
O has at his finger-tips access to the best intelligence operation in the world, some would argue the best, next to you know who.
He has assets and Phd experts that can brief him with the latest before he steps off the plane and then update him while he is on the ground.
He must be too arrogant to listen to them, and instead prefers to listen to “his people”.
Unfortunately, his people think they are connected while in reality they have been played for fools.
Shep's describing a car chase...
Putin and the KGB/DUMA (Our Russia party)/KPRF run the show in Russia and most of the rest of the “Former” Soviet Union.
Saul Alinsky returns from the dead....
“We have a button for you too Sec Clinton. It says “Chernyi”. It’s a term of respect. Tell your boss.”
Yep. Zero hit the reset button alright.
But its a loop with the U.S. playing the fool.
One thing that the world seems to know.....Putin is pulling the strings in Russia. One thing the world doesn’t know is .....who is pulling the strings on Obama? This needs to be searched out and exposed.
