Skip to comments.Putin Pulls Obama's Strings
Posted on 09/10/2013 12:51:44 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
Well, if youre one of those out there who has thus far failed to see the dominance of Vladimir Putin in the Putin/Obama relationship the light surely must be shining now. In the last 24 hours our Dear Ruler has managed to show not only America, but the rest of the world, just how weak he is on the world stage.
A bit of a recap here to show you what kind of a bind Obama was in:
· Obama goes off-teleprompter (always a dangerous thing) and comes up with this red line gaff. He is then on the record as saying that Assad will be dealt with harshly if he dares to use chemical weapons.
· Assad uses (or at least Obama and Kerry say he used) chemical weapons against his own people.
· Obama realizes how badly he screwed up with his red line comment. His credibility, whatever is left of it, is on the line.
· Obama seeks help from Great Britain. For the first time since 1792 the British Parliament refuses to go along with a request from the Prime Minister to use force. Obama is in this on his own.
· Obama needs someone to stand with him on this, so he tells the nation he will seek an approval vote for the Congress. It soon becomes clear the congress is not going along. The Senate maybe but not the house. Obama is feeling even more lonely and exposed.
· Obama calls in the campaign team, Plouffe et al. Its not policy hes looking for, its words. They tell him to tell the world that the red line isnt really his. Fail.
· Virtually all polls taken of the American people show strong opposition to Obamas planned attack on Syria.

Pinnochio told the Russkis that he’d be “more flexible” after the 2012 “elections”. Pooty Poo can make him dance now.
a child of 5 could see what is happening here
maybe the State Department should go hire one
And then his amateur idiot Secretary of State opens his mouth about “international control,” only to have the State Department try to “unsay” the words. Putin jumps on it, 0bama has an out to save face.
Talk about pwning someone. Putin just accomplished keeping Assad in power, keeping the Saudi pipeline out of Syria, embarrassing 0bama on the world stage, AND having 0bama “owe” him a favor. And Putin got it all for free!!!!!
Sadly, I am unable to defeat the advertising at the site to see the rest of the article. So I won’t be reading further.
America is on the eve of destruction, thanks to political correctness and the efforts of the media and White Guilt liberals who put this amateur Commie Muslim in charge.
If we impeach this idiot we have Joe Biden, the class clown next up and further down the line Boehner who is afraid of his own shadow.
We have one Jr. Representative with balls and conservatism who may be able to pull us out of it, but it looks like America will go with the Bitch of Benghazi for president.
“the ass-kicker, the community organizer and the gasser”
Puts things in perspective quickly, especially the contrast between the first two.
The Eastern world, it is explodin'....
...and now we know what Reggie sees in him...
LOL. But true, sad as it is. One Big Ass Mistake America.
Notice how Obama (and his “team”) have been behind the curve with Putin at every step?
They run around looking foolish and incompetent while trying to formulate a response to Putin’s latest move.
Just as they seem to arrive at some kind of a face-saving reponse,
Putin throws another wicked fastball right by them!
Just across the wires...
Kerry to meet Russia foreign minister in Geneva on Thursday.
I wonder if Kerey will bow.
- Obama cancels the vote in Congress
- The UN tries to attach teeth to a Syrian resolution and Russia kills it. Now the UN security council has cancelled its meeting on Syria.
Now Syria doesn’t even have to give up its weapons. And as you mentioned Assad stays in power, no Saudi pipeline, Putin makes Obama look like a fool, and Obama has to thank him for it.
Putin..."I love it when a plan comes together."
Wee Wee aka doofus-in-chief is performing like he has cocaine headache #666.
We have an ex operative from the KGB on their side and a community organizer on our side....where would you put your money!!! Obama is out of his league at every step of his presidency. Incompetent, inept, bungling ass idiot!!!
Pulling strings is a good analogy
I prefer Vlad with two Glocks making Obama dance
He can’t dance well because he has already shot himself in one foot
It only looks that way if you're swallowing the mind control pills from the leftstream media.
Conservatives really need to stop letting themselves be steered by the left. It's embarrassing.
It’s like Clint said....... “a man’s got to know his limitations”
Poot is going to put Obamas famous “flexibility” to the test by having him shove his head up his own arse, to start with.
What plan? Putin didn’t have to have a plan, he was able to sit back and watch the clown show!
Right now he must be desperate to find a golf course.
And Putin has time to beef up Syria's defenses and increase Russian presence in the Med.
Meanwhile, Americans and Europeans get comfortable with the idea of No Obama Attack On Syria, making it even more difficult for Obama to rally support when he finally catches on to the fact that Putin has played him for a sucker and a fool.
Putin has Snowden at the helm...
Yep, that’s pretty much what happened.
It looks like Putin is whipsawing Obama just for sport.
Obama’s speech tonight:
Actung: we begin our 48 hour campaign in Serbia tonight. What, oh, Syria that is. We have enough fuel munitions and money for a 48 hour full attack. Right? (yavoll El Dope). Ok, we push on just like da Panzers did once before, in Germany. (El Dope, that was in Belgium). Oh, OK Belgium.
“Meanwhile, Americans and Europeans get comfortable with the idea of No Obama Attack On Syria, making it even more difficult for Obama to rally support when he finally catches on to the fact that Putin has played him for a sucker and a fool.”
Exactly. Putin and Assad will fudge on this like all dictators do. But by then, Assad will have the upper hand, and nobody will care.
Oddly enough, neither will 0bama. He was only doing this to pay back the Saudis for putting him through school. He tried, and like everything else, he failed. He’ll be off chasing the next shiny thing to come around.
Oh man, you a bad FReeper, bad FReeper! ;)
Kerry will have a flashback to an earlier time and will negotiate a surrender.
Putin has Snowden at the helm...
Doesn’t Putin now get to occupy Syria with Russian troops without firing a shot? I’d think the terrorists will be looking for a new playground.
He will probably throw his war medals over the Reformation Wall.
Just his way of saying "Kerry was here."
And Putin read the sign correctly.
Talk about pwning someone. Putin just accomplished keeping Assad in power, keeping the Saudi pipeline out of Syria, embarrassing 0bama on the world stage, AND having 0bama owe him a favor. And Putin got it all for free!!!!!
Or one of those ‘natural’ cigarrettes

I didn’t see in the article reports I heard on Fox over lunch today. They were reporting that Russia is now saying that the U.S. has to completely pull the military option off of the table for the agreement to work. In other words, we can’t “wait and see” before removing the option...we must rule it out completely right now.
"Russians don't take a dump, son, without a plan."
click on the print version and you bypass all of the advertising
I’m ready to start a “Putin for President” campaign!!!
Hey, O’s already proved one doesn’t need to be a naturalized citizen - and Putin’s far more conservative than most Republicans!
Wait, wait! Putin is a lifelong Communist whose every move has been to marginalize and defeat the United States. We've already GOT one of those as President!
