WASHINGTON Vladimir Putin, who keeps Edward Snowden on a leash and lets members of a riotous girl band rot in jail, has thrown President Obama a lifeline.
The Russian president had coldly brushed back Obama on Snowden and Syria, and only last week called John Kerry a liar.
Now, when it is clear Obama cant convince Congress, the American public, his own wife, the world, Liz Cheney or even Donald Shock and Awe Rumsfeld to bomb Syria just a teensy-weensy bit Pooty-Poot (as W. called him) rides, shirtless, to the rescue, offering him a face-saving way out? If it were a movie, wed know it was a trick. We cant trust the soulless Putin his Botox has given the former K.G.B. officer even more of a poker face or the heartless Bashar al-Assad. By Tuesday, Putin the Peacemaker was already setting conditions.
Just as Obama and Kerry with assists from Hillary and some senators were huffing and puffing that it was their military threat that led to the breakthrough, Putin moved to neuter them, saying theyd have to drop their military threat before any deal could proceed. The administrations saber-rattling felt more like knees rattling. Oh, for the good old days when Obama was leading from behind. Now these guys are leading by slip-of-the-tongue.
Amateur hour started when Obama dithered on Syria and failed to explain the stakes there. It escalated last August with a slip by the methodical wordsmith about a red line for us which the president and Kerry later tried to blur as the worlds red line, except the world was averting its eyes.

It is a sad day when Bad Vlad is better at standing up for truth justice and the American way than the US president
All this appearance of our Ruski-Rescue presents a stunning development on the world stage. It’s almost as though Obama is reading the script for DON KNOTTS As MR. LIMPETT,(The stereotype of a nutty, effusive, absentminded fake professor) and Putin puts on his elevator shoes to read the script for GEORGE C. SCOTT As PATTON (The archetypical Warrior Prince). Both men act as though their part is the lead, when it’s painfully obvious to everybody EXCEPT Mr. Limpett, that Patton is in charge, because he is ready and willing to take full ownership of the task at hand. I swear, if I didn’t know any better (and I don’t) I’d swear that Obama is in full cooperation with the Russians to help ‘reconfigure’ our place internationally speaking.
Not Aureen Dowd.
No, obomber, just unbelieveably small attacks.
Maureen, predictably in the end says "its all bush's fault."
I read through the responses on the opinion page. I could not believe the liberal idiocy. Sort of mind boggling how many people have their heads up 0’s a$$.
Maybe this was all planned out, and this was what the Bummer was referring to when he said in the hot mike that after he was elected he’d have more leeway?
She certainly knows how to "position" herself.

Not a valid sample, they are all from NYC or there abouts most likely!
Actually, the first two were from California.

Well that says a lot. What is the difference, they’re still liberals.
I TRUST GOD.
Shows just how far we have fallen as a country and a culture.
At this point, Putin gains big in a propaganda war by being above board with any news releases to the US population. Obama has an awful lot to hide.
So, when it comes to Syria, I trust Putin’s information over Obama’s information.
... well yeah. It was the NY Slimes.
