'The Two Men Barely Looked at Each Other' (Video)
The Weekly Standard ^ | JUN 19, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER

Posted on 06/19/2012 6:22:52 AM PDT by Hotlanta Mike

CBS reports that when Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin met with the press after their long private discussion, "The two men barely looked at each other. You could just feel, sort of, the tension between them. And the body language really represented how far apart the two leaders remain on the issue of Syria."

"It is clear that President Obama did not get an agreement from Russian president Putin [on Syria]," CBS reports.

"And interestingly," CBS adds, "Apparently President Obama got a bit of a lecture from Putin about some other failed transitions that are going on around the world."

Putin knew long ago that Obama can be ignored without consequence.

Obama: Pants-wetting fear at being in the presence of a real man.

Putin: Utter disrespect at being in the presence of a wholly unaccomplished, metrosexual pussy.

‘”And interestingly,” CBS adds, “Apparently President Obama got a bit of a lecture from Putin about some other failed transitions that are going on around the world.”’

Chuckle...would that be the hope and change, fundamentally changing America or Egypt or Libya or.... It seems failure is a hallmark of Barry’s administration. Yet, the press seems curiously uninterested.

Putin deliberately treats 0bama like a little water boy. He knows that 0bama is a thin-skinned narcissist who is accustomed to being fawned over. Putin is playing chess while 0bama can’t even grasp Candyland, much less checkers.

I don’t like Putin; he’s not our friend. But he has a much clearer view of the world than our president, and unlike our president, Putin does what he has to do to look out for the interests of his country.

FoxNews was reporting that Obama had a cheek spasm which saw his cheek tweaking for a period of time after the meeting with Putin.

I will say that later on at a round table, Obama slid up next to Putin, they shared a few words and laughed together.

I’m not completely sure what to make of all this. I do think Obama got his lunch handed to him.

The difference being the man who calls himself Obama is a wanna be dictator, an amateur as Klein calls him in his book, whereas Putin is a seasoned professional.

I agree. I saw one clip where Putin was basically rolling his eyes as Obama waxed on. We clearly have a narcissistic buffoon at the helm.

didn't Obama confide to Medvedev that he'd have MORE FLEXIBILITY after the election? Medvedev was to pass that nugget along to PootyPoot, so that they wouldn't press Obama until he was free to give away the store in November.

Since I’m constantly accused of being “racist” every time I oppose, or disagree, with this POS TOTUS, I guess that makes me free to say: Never send a “boy” to do a man’s job. Flame away.

Or it could all be an act to cover BO’s carrying Putin’s water.

It just looked too staged. I would think they would be cool to each other instead of dramatically trying to look like they were not happy with each other.

I know they are just photo opps but when I compare photos of Putin on a Harley, fishing the Baltic, hunting Polar Bears and acting like a mans man then compare them to photos of Obammy looking like a metrosexual punk on a bicycle with his little beenie ???
Putin uses obammy like his own little bitch.

The video was hilarious. It is obvious that these two Communists do not get along because Putin regards Obama as the shoeshine boy who, because of his skin color, managed to become head of a powerful country, while Putin, who has an even bigger ego than BO and is much smarter, is stuck with running a third-rate nation.

In the immortal words of the late Rodney King, “ Can’t we all just get along?” Apparently, not.

Could be, but as pointed out by others on this thread Putin is not in the least intimidated by Obama (unlike, unfortunately, our Republican "leaders" who are scared senseless to challenge our socialist leader).

Syria and our attitude towards it have puzzled me. From my (admittedly limited) perspective, it is a case of radical Muslims (the rebels) being killed in large numbers by apostate Muslims (the regime): where is the down side for the U.S.?

While they’re killing each other they’re not kiliing us.

They are too much like each other to get along and certainly are ideological twins. . . Commies at heart. Putin is just worlds more intelligent than Obama and Obama knows it. Putin is making him look like the stooge and child that he is and Obama doesn’t like it. And Putin is helping Assad put down the uprising of Obama’s Muslim brothers, which gets under his skin almost as much a making him look stupid.

Obama needs to give Putin a lecture on implementing affirmative action for Chechens. If Putin wonders if that is such a good idea, Obama can point to himself as proof of how affirmative action can benefit a country.

Putin is clear. Russia values dictators to Islamic extremists. Obama panders to Moslem Brotherhoods agenda of subersion, subtrifuge and perversion.

Pray for our troops and our country.

The press is on the wrong side of history when it comes to Obama and they know it but their liberal indrocination and egos are at war with the truth. IMHO, of course.

The only downside, for Obama, is that his Saudi masters are pissed at him for not unilaterally bombing the hell out of Assad. As far us real Americans, the Russians helping kill fanatic Muslims is all good. We need to send Putin letters of appreciation.

Meanwhile we need to convert existing vehicles to natural gas and build new ones to run on it, ramp up natural gas production, and also export it to Europe. The collapse of world oil prices when we sharply cut back on our 9 to 12 million a day imported oil habit would, as a side effect, cut Putin’s nuts off. No revamped military for him.

“Are you being racist for calling out his white half...”

Maybe they should settle things like they did in the old days. The two opposing leaders meet in the arena and fight it out to the death in “hand to hand” combat. Winner take all. Old Poo-poot would rip his head off and turn it inside out. I wonder if only the “white side” would be showing then?
