Let me guess.

He’s had a meeting with Putin and thinks he’s jolly good fellow and one we can do business with. Has brought back a piece of paper with both their names affixed to the bottom.

Hurrah!! We’ll have piece in our time!!

reminds me of the movie A Few Good Men. Omuma is the female attorney saying to the judge something like “she really really objects” and cruise pokes fun at her.

Here is a chance Mister Obama's to do one thing correctly.

One suspects that he has no such interest, but one would be happy to be mistaken.

Simply the results of an internet video no doubt. As Lars Larson plays on his show from the “lyin’ king”: “I want to make sure every American is listening today.” I guarantee there’s at least one that ain’t. Ever.

The Budapest Memorandum was signed by Bill Clinton, John Major, Boris Yeltsin and Leonid Kuchma – the then-rulers of the USA, UK, Russia and Ukraine - as part of the denuclearization of former Soviet republics after the dissolution of the Soviet Union

Technically it means that if Russia has invaded Ukraine then it would be difficult for the US and Britain to avoid going to war.

“The Budapest Memorandum was signed by Bill Clinton...”

Presidents can sign anything they want, but unless the Senate approves, the treaty doesn’t mean squat.

Russia has a Naval Base in Crimea and a fleet nearby. The majority of Crimeans are Russian and would like to be part of Russia.

Crimea has a different type of government from the other 24 Ukrainian "districts".

"I have instructed Secretary of State Kerry to issue a strongly worded statement addressing this very troubling issue. I have made Secretary Kerry aware that I am extremely upset and I expect an answer from President Putin within the next 30 days. Should President Putin fail to respond to Secretary Kerry's demands, I will be forced to take the drastic action of calling a high-level cabinet meeting with members of my administration to discuss the options available to us as a nation. Mr. Putin...do not underestimate us. We are determined to issue strong statements in an effort to convey our resolve in bringing an end to this stunning situation."

As usual, he said absolutely nothing!

When finished he runs like a rabbit so no one can ask a question.

He stands by the people of Ukraine, Europe, etc.

Big deal. I stand with them too. What does that mean coming from this POTUS? Less than nothing.
