Skip to comments.Van Hollen: Focus on Putin, not Obama
Posted on 03/02/2014 6:58:26 AM PST by SkyPilot
Americans should focus their ire on Russian President Vladimir Putin and not offer partisan attacks on President Barack Obama, Rep. Chris Van Hollen said Sunday.
"Were 48 hours from an international crisis, I would hope Americans would focus on condemning the actions of Putin rather than in a knee-jerk way, again, criticizing the president of the United States," the Maryland Democrat said on Fox News Sunday.
Van Hollen appeared on the program after House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) blasted Obama for being outmaneuvered...

"Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!"
Liberals react to any criticism of Obama as if acid were being dripped on their brains.
Well, seeing as how Putin isn’t the one turning my country into a sniveling pile of stinking panty waste...
We would be extremely irresponsible to not focus on the greatest threat to our National Security, Barak Hussein Obama.
So NOW DemocRATS care what we say.
Well, since you're in the mood, about ObamaCare.....
“I would hope Americans would focus on condemning the actions of Putin rather than in a knee-jerk way, again, criticizing the president of the United States,” the Maryland Democrat said on Fox News Sunday.”
Putin took advantage of an known idiot, And I’m supposed to put my faith in the idiot?
I’ve BEEN panicking for SIX YEARS NOW! Aarrgghhhh!
LOL! That is AWESOME! I’m gonna be one of ‘those’ types of Grannies one day! Love it! :)
Remember, Obama has more flexibility now.
Obama more interested in “Gays” then the American nation!!! Van Hollen is about as dumb as a person can become!!! Putin is having a ball with the person we call POTUS Obama and his inept Democrat Party!!! The entire world scoffs and laughs at the once almighty USA & its “moron/buffoon” POTUS, Obama!!!
What good is criticizing the actions of Putin, when we have a pantywaist sissy boy as commander in chief who hates America more than Putin does?
This all happened because the US has no credible foreign policy other than Obama’s dedicated commitment to making the US a third rate world power.
Ha! Obama, with his corrupt marxist agenda and his deviant drive to faggotize our institutions, is far more destructive and far more of an enemy to “my” America than Putin could ever hope to be.
I hope Putin rubs the bastard’s nose in his humiliation.
Uhhhhh. Yeah. Okay.
No, no, no, we wouldn’t want to examine’s the POTUS’s leadership during an “international crisis” would we? Judging him upon his performance and track record? That’s only for conservatives.
Seriously though, that does sound a bit panicky coming from ‘rate.
I’m far more likely to encounter soldiers ordered by Obastard than I am by Putin, so I’ll just keep my attention on the more appropriate one, thank you.
Good post. I would be laughing except for the fact that it is so horribly true.
We can’t have a focus put on both?
Oh I forgot, democrats have half a brain at best.
When the proximate cause of the “international crisis” that is 48 hours away is having a weak, foolish and ineffective rookie as the American President, the focus should surely be on the actions (or lack of actions) of that weak, foolish and ineffective rookie.
Obama is clearly out of his league, and this crisis (not to mention all the others) is the unavoidable consequence of elevating him to a position for which he was manifestly unqualified and expecting him to get remedial on-the-job training. Clearly, even after years in the job he’s not yet ready for prime time.
So, in the absence of leadership from Obama, who is the current leader of the Free World? Angela Merkel?
“Were 48 hours from an international crisis,”
We’re facing this situation because (1) our foreign policy is in shambles and (2) we are widely perceived as weak.
As president, Obama is responsible for this neglect and incompetence.
The Dems must really be worried about this foreign policy disaster (in tandem with the Obamacare disaster) in the face of upcoming elections.
Putin must be think you are out of the loop stupid.
I would like to believe that next time we’ll learn something from the Obama “experience” and vote in someone with a qualified background and gravitas to be president, but I’m not at all sanguine about it.
I'd like to be happy about the awakening. But there is a cost to such weakness as the pig has shown.
I’d like to think so but the last two POTUS elections have soured my confidence in the voting population. The “gibsmedat” and “ain’t in cool, man” crowds came out in force for the TFG......I’m not sure what they’ll do for Hillary if she runs.
I would say that I hope Biden get the Donk’ nod.....but I’m afraid the voters of this country might just elect him once they did.
Van Hollen seems to be the Democrats “go to guy” everytime they screw something up. He’s kind of like the guy who follows the horses in the parade carrying a bucket and a shovel.
Its goint to take a lot of fear and pain to wake up the sheeple. Unfortunately, I think we’re a long way from the trun around. IMO things are going to get a lot worse before they get any better. Just trying to keep it real.
Unfortunately, when it comes to international crisis management, there is no grading on a curve for affirmative action.
Ok,Van Hollen, I’m focusing on Putin. Now what?
Get out the popcorn and watch the slaughter?
Focused Leader....Putin!!! Focused Girly Boy....Obama!!! Great photos!!!
Yeeaah, he can get both his toes behind his ears, now...................
We are focusing on both morons - Putin and Oblamo. Both are troublesome and both are causing worries.
Has anyone researched why this guy might have said about George Bush’s interventions?
