Obama declares ‘happy hour’ with Dems minutes after Ukraine tough talk
The Washington Times ^ | February 28, 2014 | Ben Wolfgang

Posted on 02/28/2014 4:51:27 PM PST by jazusamo

Minutes after issuing a stern warning to Russia and saying there will be a price to pay if it interferes militarily in Ukraine, President Obama headed to a “happy hour” with fellow Democrats.

Speaking at a fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee, Mr. Obama struck a very different tone than he had less than 30 minutes earlier, when he appeared with little warning in the White House press briefing room and issued a vague threat to Moscow.

“Well, it’s Friday. It’s after 5 o’clock. So, this is now officially happy hour with the Democratic party,” the president told his cohorts. “I can do that. It is an executive action. I have the authority.”

An audience member then asked the president to “tell us about your plans for nuclear war with Russia.”

The sad thing is that he fully understands happy hour and is serious about it.

I sense this sort of bizarre extension of his overplaying his hand in jest...just as he has done in utter seriousness wont go down nearly as well as he might assume... in his narcissistic haze.

Russia is in control of Crimea, Donetsk, Lugansk, and Kharkiv.

The areas west have the Bandera Nazis stocking up on rocks, molotov cocktails and weapons they’ve looted from the police stations they’ve taken over. Saying their going to kill all the Russians and Jews.

And Obama thinks it’s happy hour.

I’m partly surprised that he didn’t invite Putin to the happy hour to celebrate his complete capitulation to the new tsar of the kremlin.

I have no problem with the Russians dividing Ukraine . It’s big . There should be a East Ukraine and a West Ukraine . Calmly divided and an open and easy process for folks in one side to migrate peacefully to the other , with all their possessions and with possible property swaps and so forth .
If Putin can pull this off without a lot of bloodshed , it would be amazing .

Well, happy hour means different things to different people. With conservatives, happy hour is liquor at discounted prices, and maybe hot dogs or meat balls during happy hour. With liberals, happy hour is cocaine and gay sex in bathrooms.

“The Jews in the USSR constitute the most faithful support of the ruling Bolshevik regime, and the vanguard of Muscovite imperialism in Ukraine. The Muscovite-Bolshevik government exploits the anti-Jewish sentiments of the Ukrainian masses to divert their attention from the true cause of their misfortune and to channel them in a time of frustration into pogroms on Jews. The OUN combats the Jews as the prop of the Muscovite-Bolshevik regime and simultaneously it renders the masses conscious of the fact that the principal foe is Moscow.” - Stepan Bandera - a Ukrainian nationalist leader.

Just from a Goebbels book. And anyone surprised why Russians are so suspicious towards Ukrainian ‘freedom fighters’?

Out of his depth, absolutely. But someone out of his depth who had half a heart would not go to happy hour - he would be too worried about lives lost, and his responsibility for hit. This man has no heart, no compassion, no feelings for others AT ALL. He could no doubt walk through a field of recently aborted babies, then wipe the blood off his shoes and immediately sit down to a sumptuous meal and regale his audience about the latest 18 holes of golf.

I still remember his 'shout out to Dr Joe Medicine Crow' a few hours after a dozen (unarmed) soldiers were murdered at Ft Hood.

Our president is a sociopath.

I read somewhere that historians and anthropologists had determined the the breakup of Czechoslovakia was the first time in the 6000+ years of recorded human history that a country of any significance had split up amicably, peacefully, and without any animosity. This was fairly mind-boggling.

The phrase "Happy Hour President" fits him quite well.

He seems more comfortable on the golf course or partying with celebrities in an expensive fashion than actually doing the hard work of governing the country.

The ones in Western Ukraine with the molotov cocktails, the looted police weapons and stockpiles of rocks are. And they could care less about other Ukrainians that get in between them and the Russians/Jews they have vowed to kill now that they have declared “independence”.

Oppositional defiance disorder is psych speak for arsehole.

We have a person occupying our White House who is a malignant narcissist with oppositional defiance disorder.

I think he secretly wants putin to be on top... of him!

When I first heard his limp statement on the current crisis in Ukraine; followed by his attendance tonight at a Dem fundraiser, I thought - Oh, that is just his style. Remember - he did much the same on Sept. 11, 2012 when our ambassador and three other Americans were dying in Benghazi.

I wonder what sort of excuse they will come up with tomorrow to explain his lamebrain attitude to this new crisis? They have used the phony video already; anyone want to make predictions?

So all western Ukrainians are nazis according to you.

The russians live in the eastern Ukraine. They are about as Ukrainian as a frenchman living in Italy makes him an Italian.
