Obama Threatens To Penalize Putin Over Ukraine

By Kathleen Hennessey March 1, 2014

WASHINGTON -- President Obama told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Saturday that the U.S. may boycott an upcoming economic summit in Russia and threatened further penalties if Moscow does not recall its military forces from Ukrainian territory.

In a 90-minute telephone call, Obama warned Putin that Russia faces "greater political and economic isolation," according to a White House description of the call. The president suggested the United Nations would take action for what he called a "breach of international law."

Our president sure knows how to put the fear of......
well, something, into Putin.

If we didn’t stand on the brink of WW III. this
would be laughable.

Putin knows obama is a pussy. He also knows that properly led, The United States is his worst nightmare. He has a couple years left to do what he wants. Following that, he could very well face an ass whooping.

What a loss. Besides, acting-president Valerie Jarrett won’t have to tag along to write stuff for the dippydo to say.

Putin is opening up his calender....

Crosses out ‘meet with loser’. Writes ‘hunt Siberian tigers’ instead.

Really?

Such a statement should be embarrassing, but I assume that with a media that has shivers running up their leg with every word he utters, it’ll be presented as some accomplishment.

Boy Zer0 is double-dog deeply concerned. Watch out, Poot... You’re about to get Obama’s trump card: a “major speech” at the UN about “mutual respect and good neighborliness.”

That one actually made me laugh out loud because I remember Carter on occasion would get a little genuinely irritated.

Unfortunately at the end of a couple of years it
is we who will get an ass kicking and probably have
to make a fighting retreat to our own continent if
we are able to hold it at all.

If this had happened a few weeks earlier, Obama would have probably had us skip the Olympics.

I think he’s seriously afraid of Putin.

Seems like I read that Bama went to Russia once as a senator and was detained for a few hours for some reason or other and I don’t believe he’s been back since.

So, from that chart, Putin could effectively shut down Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Germany, Hungary, Greece, Finland, Estonia, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, and Austria.

Quite a hand.

The scary thing is obama may act just because so many people think he’s a pussy. It would help him destroy the country.

Yes, he did. He put his thumb on his nose, wiggled his fingers at hussein and said, "Neener, neener!"

I would invade a country every week if it would keep obama away.
He is an absolute joke to the world and an enemy of the people he presides over.

He had a chance to scare away Putin by letting him know he’ll deport all the Gays and Lesbians to Crimea and missed it.

I think he's afraid to go back. Does anyone know if Obama has been back to Russia since the 2005 incident?
