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.

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.

An open mic confession said that after the election he would be more flexible to do things.... I think this is one of them, he doesn´t have to face the music or pay the fiddler. Putin has him in a corner, and has the trump cards. Al Queda has them running for cover and he knows that the house of cards is falling.

If Obama has his way, he will do a Jimmy Carter, and boycott the upcoming Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

hmmm, no place to comment at the article link nor the orginal AP link. I think AP is tightening the circle of wagons around Obama.

Obama looks like a big cry baby whiner.

Some sort of thin film would’ve been on his hands, rubbed off entirely on Snowden. It probably would’ve had something to slowly... get rid of him.

The idea that Obama cut off diplomatic communications with Putin is friggin' unbelievable.

Putin will only stress that Russia treats asylum in the same way that the USA does. Neither country has EVER given an asylum grantee up.

So far, winner: Putin.

Reasons: His political stock (and respect) just went up in the world. You folks may not have heard, but during his African trip, a few of the leaders over there refused to meet with him too, it just wasn’t reported too much in the news.

And another thing: The anti-gay policies (wise, in my opinion) aren’t just Putin. I believe the votes in their legislature were either unanimous, or pretty close to it.

Nice work, but WADR, a better pick of Obie against Putin's martial arts take down would be Obie's little fairy dance while watching a martial arts take down.
