Putin is probably one of the few people who have actually seen Barry’s school transcripts and medical history.

Obama only cares about his personal power within the Democrat party, and his efforts to crush Republicans that are not fellow Statists. That’s what HE thinks is “best for the country”.

Are you kidding? Putin has a file on Obama thicker than the metro NYC phone book. He knows EVERYTHING about the president of the USA that the public doesn't and the media is afraid to ask.

That should scare everybody.

Actually, I think Obama has a higher goal than power.

I think Obama is a Muslim and that jihad and the destruction of America is what he is all about. I think he is prepared to be a martyr and sacrifice himself and his family to achieve this.

If Obama can destroy this country, survive and maintain power and influence, I'm sure he would be thrilled.
But if destroying the country requires him to lose it all, I think he would do it.

Two other well-known people who have seen Obama’s school transcripts are former Harvard officials with access to his Harvard Law School records — namely, former Law School dean Elena Kagan who’s now a Supreme Court justice and former Harvard President Larry Summers who’s about to become Chairman of the Federal Reserve.

Vladimir Putin isn’t the only one whose stature has risen enormously under the Obama regime.

I would agree that Obama is sympathetic to Mohammedans, but it's because the enemy of his enemy (the United States) is his friend. Obama is a communist.

His father was a communist.
His mother was a communist.
His grandparents were communists.
His childhood mentor was a communist.
His religious mentor was a communist.
His adult associations were with communists.
He is sympathetic to communist regimes (i.e., Venezuela)

More than enough evidence ( very religious in Indonesia as a muslim, backed the muslim brotherhood, backed AQ in Libya, his own words “”one of the prettiest sounds on Earth..I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction” to suggest he is a sunni as he now backs al-qaeda in Syria against the Alawites and Christians.

The old saying is: "The greatest trick the devil ever played on mankind was convincing us that he didn't exist."

Obama's greatest trick is convincing us that he is incompetent and doing all this stuff by mistake.

I say No. I am not fooled.

I think you give him way too much credit. His perceived intelligence and cunning is crafted and handed to him by his handlers. He is just a puppet serving objective driven power-brokers as their useful idiot. He is doing a great job at that, I must admit.

No, that is probably THE FRENCH, since Obama seems to do whatever France wants, especially in killing people for TOTAL/FINA’s Oil.

But, The Russians quite obviously have a thick Psych Profile on Obama, that would make for interesting reading.

Na, I don’t believe that Hussein is the stuff of which martyrs are made, not even the dime-a-dozen Islamic jihad kind. His most obvious qualities are his narcissism, his self-centeredness, his laziness, his lack of self-responsibility,and like qualities. Sacrifice of any kind, however superficial, is not in his nature. I believe that he would love to take the US down, but if he was the only one acting, it wouldn’t happen. He just doesn’t have the stuff in him to make great (great as in big, important) things happen. He has been pushed along by others using him for their own purposes, his whole life. He is a willing tool, but tool he is. Of himself, he is inert material.

I do believe that the only force which moves him of his own accord is his natural-born racism. The only time he shows any initiative is when spouting off on mTters which don’t concern him or the Presidency, and those matters are always somethimg racial, or when he’s plotting yet another attack on whites with Holder. For that, he might skip a golf game or two.

(I also believe he’s a Muslim, and goes with whatever benefits Muslims, but I believe that even his Muslim religion is driven by race, seen through the prism of race.)

Thanks Innovative. Michael Bohm, The Moscow Times:
Putin set his latest trap Monday with a seemingly attractive proposal to have international monitors identify and destroy Syrian President Bashar Assad's vast stockpile of chemical weapons. If Obama falls for this one, he and international monitors will be jumping through hoops for years...
-and-
Paul told a dozen reporters that efforts to delay a military strike clearly paid off, now that Russia has brokered a deal to secure and eventually destroy Syria’s chemical weapons.

Putin has cashed in all his chips in assessing America ripe for the taking. Strong-willed, arrogant opportunists like Putin have an intuitive ability to detect hapless losers such as Obama, with an inherent revulsion, disdain for those they perceive as being weak. Putin hates Obama for many reasons not the least of which is the abject loathing and revulsion of Zero as the vacuous, emasculated, pusillanimous empty suit that he is in making the most of gaining the upper hand to Russia’s benefit at the very high cost of American power, prestige.

It is no-brainer to realize most of Putin’s geopolitical victories, rise to master global chess-player would never have come to fruition had there been even ‘Elsie, the Cow’ as leader of our now beleagured nation.

Without Barky in the Oval Orifice, Supreme Diesel Kagan would be a nobody. At least Summers can say that, without Barky, he'd still be getting thrown out of Harvard faculty lounges.

Obama is currently negotiating with Putin the terms for the removal of the chemical arms from Syria. These negotiations entail the removal to be conducted and overseen by Russia/Putin, Assad’s main supporter and must trusted ally!

In order for Assad to agree to this plan, he has demanded that Obama promise that the US will not attack the genocidal Syrian regime, under any circumstances. These terms will leave Assad free to continue his butchering of innocent men, women, and children.

Once agreed upon, these negotiations would also result in Putin gaining the control over the Middle East’s future, essentially eliminating the central role of the US in that vital area of the world since the 1970’s.

To throw salt in the wound, Putin has also promised to further increase the shipment of conventional arms to Syria and Iran in an effort to secure the stability of those regimes; which would in turn make him a strong candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. (Let’s just ignore the fact that 1,400 innocent civilians were murdered by chemical arms; while more than 100,000 innocents were murdered by conventional arms.)

Putin will exchange the chemical arms with Assad for an unlimited supply of conventional arms. In addition, Putin has also sent the Russian navy to protect Syria from any possible US attacks. We must all keep in mind the fact that the war in Syria is being waged between two evils. In one side we have Assad, Iran and Russia, and in the rebel’s side, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and Obama. The US should have never gotten involved in the Syrian civil war.

Again, in the most egregious Orwellian fashion, the American Secretary of State thanks Putin for taking over the leadership in the Middle East after displacing the United States. Meanwhile, the American media will laud Obama’s Syrian debacle as a great victory for peace. Perhaps he will receive another Nobel Peace Prize, and this time it will be shared with Putin.
