Schumer calls Putin a 'school-yard bully'
Politico ^ | August 4, 2013 | Scott Wong

Posted on 08/04/2013 4:32:00 PM PDT by Gorilla44

Russian President Vladimir Putin is nothing more than a “school-yard bully” and President Barack Obama should cancel their meeting in Moscow next month, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D.N.Y.) said Sunday.

Last week, Putin granted National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden temporary political asylum in Russia, prompting outrage from many U.S. officials, including Schumer.

“The relationship between the United States and Russia is more poisonous than any time since the Cold War because of all of this,” Schumer said on CBS News’s “Face the Nation.”

“Putin’s behaving like a school-yard bully,” he added. “Unless you stand up to that bully, they ask for more and more and more. Always going out of his way, Mr. Putin is, to poke us in the eye with Iran and Syria, now with Snowden.

Whoa, Putin must be shaking in his boots now. Obama's probably going to soil his pants when they shake hands at the summit.

That schoolyard bully has more nuclear weapons than we do, and a military that’s growing, not shrinking. One of these days, someone stupid is going to wright a check with their mouths we’ll all have to cover with our butts.

I hold Russian President Vladimir Putin in much higher regard that I do that white hating-America wrecking-bastard son of a communist whore that is presently contaminating our White House.

GO PUTIN GO!!!

They should accuse him of being racist. And have John Stewart make a joke about him.

That’ll work...

Putin says what he means and does what he says. He’s trying to outlaw homos in Russia while we elected one president and now we have homo marriage and homos in the military.

No wonder chuckles is upset!

Schumer would know best. I’m sure that he lost a lot of lunch money to boys like Putin, and if he met him, Schumer would probably hand over his lunch money today.

I think Hussein 0bama should set him straight and call his bluff! I don't like boxing, but I'd pay cash money to see Putin wipe the floor with senor sissypants.

Add to that the school yard bully over sees a nation with a reasonably solid economy despite the global situation, a nation with a moral compass like America once had and the general respect of his people and the world.

Meanwhile our once great nation hitch rides with his Cosmonauts into space and its leader is meet with chuckles and snickers around the world...

Say what one will about Putin, I wish he or some one like him was our boss right now...

Democrats do everything in their power to show the world America is not a leader anymore and all the worlds problems rest on our evil shoulders, then when it counts in their minds they demand to be a world power once again and command others to obey their will.....gee, wonder why it does not work.

You have to pass an idiots test to be an American leader in the new Obama world....regardless of party.

I had king crab today from Russia...It was vey tasty. The package says processed in Orca Bay which is in Alaska.

What I really like is that they cut a gash in the pieces on one side so you can break it open pretty easily. At $10.99 a pound...it was a nice treat.

Thank you Russia.

By his actions Obama forced Edward Snowden to defect to Russia, the only nation to give him asylum, that had the cojones and ability to defy the 0bama regime. 0bama and his commie minions threatened every nation that was considering an offer of asylum, until only Russia was left

Boo hoo, baby.

Putin's got BO's number.

Putin sees the scandals which already make BO weak and takes the opportunity to pile on by giving Snowden a one year sanctuary.

Putin smelled blood so he piled in, too.

I kinda' see Putin's point. Obama thinks a lot of himself and he's pretty pushy himself. Maybe, internationally, people want to take him down a notch or two.

Maybe Obama could sic the IRS on Russia and Putin and have him audited! I bet Putin knows what happened in Bengahzi! If Obama says a word it will become public knowledge. Putin has Obama by the short hairs so nothing will be done.

Shumer is kind of like 'Eddie Haskell' from "Leave it to Beaver".

Very snarky.
