Obama cancels meeting with Putin amid Snowden tensions
Fox News ^ | August 7, 2013

Posted on 08/07/2013 6:20:39 AM PDT by don-o

n a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month.

The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia's harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow's stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights.

Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there. Instead of visiting Putin in Moscow, the president will add a stop in Sweden to his early September travel itinerary.

Obama’s afraid of getting dominated by a real man.

How true. Here in San Fransicko the gay community was tossing out bottles of Vodka down the drain (vodka bottles filled with Water) to say they are boycotting Russia. I think Putin won’t lose some sleep over this.

Obama isn’t someone you want in the White Hut when an important phone call comes in at 3AM. He’s too focused on golf and basketball and Wednesday night concerts.

What a celebritard.

I think it is mostly the gay rights issue that set off Obama.

Gotta say it... Ol' Vlad is an evil, bad, KGB dude who seems not to think much of say, poisoning innocent people with polonium.

Can't say I'd want to shake his hand for the way he continues to piss down 0's leg, but... I would buy him lunch for it.
