It took a while for me to figure out how Obama kept drawing red lines that other countries wouldnt respect.
But now it all seems clear to me: Obamas using all of the governments supply of the color red on the deficit. Hence theres no red left for the lines he draws in foreign policy.
As reports continue to circulate of armed gunman taking over public property in Ukraine-- gunmen that are likely under the control of the Russian government-- another of Obamas red lines that wasnt has been crossed.
Armed men seized the regional government headquarters and parliament building in Crimea on Thursday and raised the Russian flag, says our own NightWatch. "Reports on the number of men ranged from 60 to 120. Police made no move to remove them.
This has been followed up by seizure of airports in Crimea. Crimea, a peninsula that juts out into the Black Sea and therefore affords Russia some access to the Mediterranean, is supposedly an independent republic thats part of Ukraine.
This crisis affords President Putin and Russia the best opportunity since the collapse of the Soviet Union for recovering control of Crimea, concludes NightWatch.
You might remember that Russia engineered the same type of coup in the Republic of Georgia in 2008 when they essentially annexed parts of Georgia known as South Ossetia and Abkhazia as a result of a 5-day war after a Russian invasion.
We'll call that war the first manifestation of the Obama Wars that have broken out in the wake of his weakness, er, election.
Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, South Ossetia and Ukraine. I don't know what dictators would do without ethnic minorities.
Im not saying that Obama is a coward, but if Caesar crossed the Rubicon while Obama was in Rome, the One would schedule a tee time.
Obama wanted to be remembered for something big that he accomplished.
Losing the Middle East and parts of Eastern Europe certainly qualifies.
Chamberlain was duped by Hitler at Munich, but he was a fool; Roosevelt was gulled by Stalin at Yalta, but FDR, by then, was a sick old man; Truman was taken in at Potsdam, but he eventually saw through ruse and stood up to the old, evil empire.
Thats because Harry Truman, farmer, failed businessman, and volunteer soldier had the capacity to grow in a way that elitists Chamberlain and Roosevelt did not.
Today you can measure someones establishment credentials by their inability to embrace new realities, in the same way you used to be able to measure someones counter culture affinities by hair and clothes.
You can take the measure of the man Obama by his inability to grow.
He really is the head of the new elite in this country.
As I have said elsewhere: In part, Obamas troubles stem from the rigidity of his broken ideas. They admit of no compromise here at home.
And no backbone anywhere else.
Egypt, Libyain fact almost all of North Africa-- Sudan, Mali, Syria, Georgia, and now Ukraine are all a part of Obamas Wars. Renewed fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan too are part of the bitter legacy of Obamas Wars.
While Obama picks on the Catholic Church, doctors, patients, the Tea Party, coal miners, truckers, banks and small businesses here at home, a great gouge has been ripped through the globe from the Atlantic to the Black Sea by Obamas Wars.
It's appeasement, buffet style, all you can eat, one fixed price: Our freedom. Or someone else's. Either way.
William Manchester relates in his epic biography of Winston Churchill that prime minster Ramsay McDonald, a great architect of appeasement, had stopped speaking with Churchill: Winston had called him the boneless wonder, the greatest living master of falling without hurting himself, and the man who possessed the gift of compressing the largest numbers of words into the small amount of thought.
And its the thoughtlessness thats so maddening about Obama, who like Ramsay McDonald, is the first head of government for his country's labor party.
Because some men will pay for Obama's heedless weakness.
And the red that is spilled wont just be confined to the ink here at home, but already includes blood spilled abroad as well.
Gov. Palin foresaw this a long time ago, but
was mocked by the GOP and the DNC and Obama.
Just like when she foresaw DEATHPANELs in
Any apology yet to her from the GOP?
His EOs don’t work in the Ukraine...
I think his lines are Pink, not red.
What? The Russians didn’t listen to him? Next thing Obama will accuse them of being racist or homophobes, that will certainly rock them on their heels! The Russians probably think Americans are all a bunch of loose wristed fags by now that won’t raise a finger. Good thing Obama plans to cut the military back to pre-WWII levels, that will show the Russians how serious we are about paying for our socialism.
Confusion for the little islamist.
They just can’t deal with a black man in the White House.
The media also deserves some scorn for the way it’s covered the Ukraine debacle.
Just a week ago, the most heroic individuals in the world, according to the media which was blasting fiery images of Ukrainian cities around the world 24/7, were the Ukrainian freedom fighters, while the greatest villain in the world was the current Ukrainian president who was a puppet of the Russians. What passion the media showed on behalf of Freedom in the Ukraine.
But we now realize that was all a lie. If the media truly cared about freedom in the Ukraine they would be even more passionately angry now about Putin than they were about his former puppet; they would be passionately decrying the Russian invasion of the Ukraine 24/7; and they would be thoroughly and vocally disgusted at Barack Obama for abandoning the whole Ukrainian issue with a laughably weak threat to Putin read hurriedly off a teleprompter on his way to Happy Hour.
But where’s the outrage? Nowhere to be found. The media has proven that it doesn’t care about anything having to do with making the world safe for democracy, as they pretended to when the Ukrainian protestors were dying in Kiev; all they care about is making the airwaves and newspapers safe for Obama to do and say whatever he wants to, no matter how despicable and dangerous for America.
So we are likely to hear less and less about the Ukraine and the further adventures of Vladimir Putin because such things make Obama look bad.
Yes. it's true your honor. Obama has no bone.
No, it's worse than that. He wants to diminish the influence of the United States so as to establish ignoring it as a normative behavior.
All according to Soros’ master plan.....
It could not be more clear. And we cannot forget the red blood spilled for nothing at this point in Afghanistan and Iraq—and it’s only for nothing because of the spineless wretch we have as our “leader.” What a tragedy for all our fallen and their families. Now they are first in line to feel the wrath of our growing financial instability, simply because they are ordered to be apolitical. Who will fight for them?
Can’t lose what you never had.
You mean HillaryCare don’t you?
