Would it be unfair for me to add that showing weakness invites despots to behave badly. AKA, is this the consequences of sticking Poland in the back by taking away our gift and or purchase from us of a Missile / High Theater Defense System?

I agree. Obama should be gone. However, first the states need to get their national guard units deployed when Obama is ousted because Jessie Jackson and Co. will call for riots and polar bear attacks. My guns are always ready, but I live in the country. The cities will burn because every black agitator will be loosed upon the cities.

sort of reminds me what Al Franken said: people said that if you vote for Goldwater, the Vietnam War will escalate, and we’ll have, you know, 450,000 American troops there. And a friend of mind voted for Goldwater, and that’s exactly what happened.

Obama should threaten Putin with that like he did the president of Uganda. Speaking of which, wish the president of Uganda were governor of Arizona, in regards to the faggotry dept.

It’s pretty effing sad when we have to look to either traditional enemies or to the third world to find ideologies we agree with.

Even if only on a narrow band of issues.

Still freakin’ sad that our home team sucks so badly that even the cheerleaders are quitting.

Obama sends a stern warning to Putin. You step over this line it will be a “profound” violation of international law and will have severe consequences.

Meanwhile, Obama announces even deeper cuts to the military. Says our new green gay military is enough to scare the crap outta Putin.

Well, the new military tactics involves naked gay men on the other side of the horror inducing and internationally geared pink line carrying rainbow flags and taunting the enemy with threats of interior decoration.

It might just work! Sun Tzu got nothin’ on our PreZ I’ll tell ya!

On the other hand, Putin will likely wipe them out and Barry will tell Holder to sue him for a hate crime. That’ll REALLY show’em.

There should be a study done to determine if the PDS in the media causes the inability to admit error or if the opposite is true.

But I could save them the time and money as the answer is obvious. Plenty of the GOP and it’s sycophants share the disease so a cure would be universally beneficial.

If I remember my history, Russia has been invaded many times. In recent history, Napoleon tried to conquer Russia and failed. Hitler invaded Russia to take their oil and enslave their people, and failed. But Obama is a military genius. He can waltz in under the gay rainbow/unicorn flag and they’ll all die laughing.

Hounshell wrote then that Palin's comments were "strange" and "this is an extremely far-fetched scenario." "And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine's pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don't see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel," Hounshell dismissively wrote.

Hmm. Wonder if he'd like to reconsider that statement, in light of this week's events.
Nah, probably not. He'd probably prefer to eat nails rather than admit that Sarah Palin MIGHT have been right.
