Original title: "Russia Responds To Obama Snub: "We Are Disappointed... But The Snowden Situation Wasn't Created By Us" (had to be truncated)
Earlier we reported that in an act of embarassing political ineptitude not to mention detente reminiscent of the Cold War's worst days, the US president did his best Freudian transferrance attempt today by blaming Putin for his ever escalating headaches caused by one 30 year old NSA whistleblower, and cancelling bilateral talks with the Russian president. And can anyone blame him: with the US increasingly slighted by both superascedent eastern powers, Russia and China, the US finds itself in a position in which it has never been - where foreign nations get to simply say "no." Here is what else Russia is saying in the aftermath of Obama's childish response.
The Kremlin says it is "disappointed" the US cancelled bilateral talks in September, after Russia granted asylum to intelligence leaker Edward Snowden.
Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser said the move showed the US could not develop ties with Russia on an "equal basis".
Russian foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said on Wednesday Russia was not to blame over the Snowden affair.
"This decision is clearly linked to the situation with former agent of US special services [Edward] Snowden, which hasn't been created by us," he said during a phone conference with the press.
"For many years, the Americans have avoided signing an extradition agreement," Mr Ushakov said, "And they have invariably responded negatively to our requests for extradition of people who committed crimes on the territory of Russia, pointing at the absence of such agreement."
But he added the invitation for the bilateral summit was still open.
"Russian representatives are ready to continue working together with American partners on all key issues on the bilateral and multilateral agenda," Mr Ushakov said.
It's sad when Russia makes more sense than the American president. And speaking of the American president, here is his official stance for the reason he escalated:
The decision to cancel the US-Russia summit comes the day after Mr Obama appeared on an evening chat show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in which he condemned a newly enacted anti-gay law in Russia.
"I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them," Mr Obama said.
So... it's all about the homosexuals?
Then again, as always happens in politics, it is likely all just for show...
Putan also was heard to say under his breath that Obama is “too communist for me”.
Obama like Carter will destroy the hopes and dreams of American Olympic athletes by not allowing our people to participate in the Winter Olympics.
I predict that even if Holder will push for an extradition treaty which is unlikely, Snowden will be a naturalized Russian citizen at the time and it is illegal to extradite citizens by their Constitution which is ahead of treaties there.
It ain’t about Snowden. It is about the Russian legislation against pederasty. It is about questions regarding NSA surveillance of Russian (and everybody’s worldwide) phone systems.
0bama has a drama filled hissy fit...
Putin shrugs and chuckles.
i approve Putin’s choice of actions.
(it’s pretty bad when the Russian leader takes little boy blew to school on something so basic. then again, what’d we expect from affirmative action?)
He is unabashedly heterosexual.....which is probably part of why he takes such pleasure in provoking the Kenyan.
OK, I know we disagree with Obama on most things especially him sucking up to the gays as if they are ex-slaves but when Russia disses Obama he is dissing America our Great Country.
Its time for us to pull together as Americans and stand behind Obama and America. Do it for the Children,
We can follow McCain and Grahmnesty’s leads.
Nah, he's just crapping on the faggotic RATs and the blue states.
We're not all that "United" in case you hadn't noticed.
ha...ha...ha...surely you are kidding...right?
On which part?
Where is GOP maddog fighter 'conservative' Dick Cheney on this issue on Obama and gays in Russia? He's not out there critical of Obama on it. I thought he was on our side ......
Man, I wish we had a real man as President. In these dark ages we live in, we really need a Reagan style leader.
The Kenyan faggot and his childish behavior are enough to make me vomit.
I like & support Putin.... and I hate the effiminate p_ssy 0dumb0 more than ever! Go Putin! Open up a can of whoop ass on 0dumb0!
I agree! It is part of the Communists’s strategy to foist homosexuality on America. The blue states ate that crap up and swallowed it whole. Putin is just laughing at the blue-state dupes and their gad obama.
Being from the Generation of Duck and Cover Nuclear Bomb Drills in Elementary School, I find it interesting that I find myself chuckling over the Ruskies making Obama look like a Punk A$$ Pussy.
Unfortunately, the LoFo Sycophant Idiots elected The One and he represents the “new” United States of America that is turning into a European Socialist Paradise right before our eyes.
“”I have no patience for countries that try to treat gays or lesbians or transgender persons in ways that intimidate them or are harmful to them,” Mr Obama said. “
All of them Middle East countries he has been sucking up to are known for being so warm and accepting to alternative life styles.
Yup, in this battle against the homolympics, it’s a no-brainer to support a real man like Putin against the weak wussybama.
This is all for show. Obozo placed Snowden in the position he was in which allowed him to “steal” classified information and leak said information. Obozo wanted that information to come out so as to further weaken the U.S. He wants Snowden in Russia for the same reason.
