I don’t think the empty suite squatting in the White House can have anybody do anything. Everybody knows he’s nothing but a feckless fairy.

This is a very dangerous time for the USA to have such incompetent “leadership”. God help us all.

Take a good look at that bumbling fool. He thinks this photo is going to depict him looking presidential? Really?

Speaking of Walmart runs, did you notice the brand new "manly jeans" instead of the mom jeans he loves so much.

And that white thing hanging off his left elbow sure looks like a retail security tag.

Hand on hips, well that sure as hell is straight (if I can use that term) from the gay model pose handbook. You can almost hear the mood setting Village People singing "Macho Man" in the background.

Okay, you got me there. He just returned from shop lifting at Walmart! LMAO

I guess we should be thankful he doesn’t have the bottoms of his shoes on the desk in this photo.

"d)Offer EU and NATO membership immediately to Ukraine"

And if the Russians still refuse to leave Ukraine, do we drive them out militarily?

Is that what you propose?

This is not the Reagan presidency. Our own country is falling to pieces because idiots are kowtowing to “gays” and illegals. We are broke, and Russia under Putin is a different animal entirely. Rubio is a joke—just like the rest of our “public servants”.

Looks like all the gop will rally around “their” president. Lots of “war talk” coming out of Washington. We’d best sit this one out. But I doubt we will.

These clowns are recognizing a “government” that is the result of an over throw of the elected government. If it’s that easy, when do we start?

Seriously, if we get involved with our military we need to protest.

I've posted this before but with repeating IMO...

How much has our military been weakened since Reagan? We know the Leftists have completely jacked the economy since Reagan. Looks to me like before we're able to deal effectively with Russia and any other aggressors in the future, we've got to do what the American people and Reagan did in the 80's:

1) oust the current regime in Washington DC
2) get the economy back on right footing by HUGE CUTS IN GOVERNMENT AND TAXES and letting the free market do what it does best: CREATE WEALTH,
3) Build the military back up once again to the world's strongest (weakness not strength invites war),
4) take down the NSA and other threats to American citizens
5) build up our intelligence community to make it first rate

Whatever aggressor-country hotspots including the Ukraine are relevant after 1-5 is done...

6) with good and verified intelligence, we should covertly work with the forces of freedom in the threatened country. In the case of the Ukraine if it’s still relevant, discern whether eastern Ukraine wants to join Russia and whether western Ukraine does not,
7) THEN, with actual and overwhelming force at our disposal, we should condemn the aggressor (Russia in this case) for threatening to invade the threatened country (Ukraine in this case) and move forces into the area with full intention of defending those that want to remain free,
8) we should seek diplomacy with the aggressor nation on the basis of our strength not weakness and any treaties or agreements should be based on “trust but verify.”

Note: We should NOT do what Bush did and start invading countries to force them to become democratic. That is NOT what America is here for. But we ARE here to help ourselves and others defend freedom against unwanted aggression and oppression.

No blood for vodka.

This is a chess game, and this move was long predicted. America has to get off of its own citizens backs, cut off illegal aliens work, block outsourcing and get industrially and financially strong again before it will be able to make effective moves in this game.

Oh Really? What would you do, send troops over there?

Rubio's engaged in just a bunch of big talk. His decisive action: "boycott G8 summit." "Send Hagel to dress 'em down!"

I'm quaking in my boots just thinking about this scolding. I'm sure Putin is, too.

“Second, President Obama should dispatch Secretary Kerry and Secretary Hagel to Kiev to show U.S. support for Ukraine’s transitional government.”

Yes and give them both rifles and make sure they know which end to point at the Russians.

Not interested. The Russian can have that nightmare. We America, need to repair all of the damage that 5 plus years of Obama have done to us and our economy. Get rid of the millions of illegals, scrap Obamacare and get America working again. The we can worry about everywhere else.

I has similar thoughts yesterday morning. What if Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and a few others decide all at one time to challenge The One?

China looks to be the big winner. Obama sent a pretty clear signal to Japan and Taiwan that they're on their own. And while Putin's attention is way to the west, China just might decide that the time is ripe to "take back" the Russian Far East that the Manchu emperors ceded to the Russian Czars in the 19th century.

If nothing else..it's probably about time for the Far-east to announce that they don't like our currency anymore. That's been in the works for a while to combat the failing global speculation merry-go-round.

It’s intended more as a bargaining chip. But I doubt Putin would be persuaded by anything not involving a credible threat to use force. I think his armed forces are much more vulnerable to attack than he suspects, and we may be about to find out.

Rubio and Cruz are both turning the silly up to 11 on this “crisis”, just to look “tougher” than Obozo. Boycotting the G8 is as impotent as Carter boycotting the 1980 Moscow Olympics.

Also-- when a great power like the US behaves as fecklessly as the current administration, it quite often finds out too late that lesser powers are quite capable of acting on their own to create a situation that sucks in the great power despite its wriggling to avoid it.

Obama's cowardice isn't a choice for peace, it's a choice for war under circumstances that we do not choose and where the situation may be decidedly against us.
