The Only World Leader Who Fears American Power Is Obama

Posted By Ronn Torossian On March 3, 2014 @ 12:10 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 4 Comments

President Obama was caught by a live microphone in March 2012 telling President Dmitri Medvedev of Russia he would have “more flexibility” on Russian issues after the election. He continued, “this is my last election. After my election I have more flexibility.” Who could have imagined that Obama’s “flexibility” meant America being spanked all over the world, twisting, turning and as flexible as a piñata getting hit every which way spinning with no direction? That is foreign policy in the Obama era.

Putin continues to outmaneuver Obama in the area of foreign policy — including sheltering spy Edward Snowden, protecting Syria, and ensuring Iran will not give up their nuclear capabilities. America continues to be weaker in the world.  Did flexibility mean getting run over when Obama told Russia he would have more flexibility? 

Today, only Obama, Kerry and Hagel are surprised that Russian parliament unanimously granted Putin permission to use the country’s military in Ukraine. Already, Russians have taken over two Ukrainian airports, and the Associated Press reported a convoy of nine Russian armored personnel carriers and a truck on a road between Sevastopol and the regional capital, Simferopol. This is consistent with Putin’s aggression. It is not surprising that Russia granted shelter to Ukraine’s President, Viktor Yanukovych and is protecting him.

The Obama Administration and their friends in the media mocked the Romney campaign for referring to Russia as “our number one geopolitical foe.” A New York Times editorial in March 2013 said Romney’s assertions regarding Russia represented either “a shocking lack of knowledge about international affairs or just craven politics.”  Obama mocked Romney saying in a debate, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.” Would he dare to say that now, or is Russia’s handling of the Ukraine situation the way allies treat one another?

Obama has shown how flexible he is time and time again.  Putin has repeatedly capitalized upon Obama’s political weakness. As Putin wrote in his September 2013 New York Times op-ed, he described an “alarming” pattern of intervening in the internal conflicts of foreign countries.  It appears to be more of the same now with the Ukraine, and comes at the expense of American pride and honor –because Obama is weak.

As Republican Senator James Inhofe said some months ago, “Putin was lecturing to the United States, and I could hear [Ronald] Reagan turning over in his grave as this was going on.” Over the last few days, gunmen wearing unmarked camouflage uniforms erected a sign reading “Crimea is Russia” in the provincial capital and Ukraine’s interim prime minister declared the Black Sea territory “has been and will be a part of Ukraine.”

With this news, what is next? Will Obama issue a memorandum that there is now a “super-duper” red line which Putin better not cross? Will he threaten detention and double probation for Putin the bully? It’s laughable that Obama proclaims there is a “new line” that Russia must not “step over” unless it wants consequences. Surely, one doesn’t expect that the cagey KBG veteran Putin is trembling from the smallest American military in many years, led by a President who is incapable of keeping his word.

Obama is the only world leader who fears American power today.

Who can forget Bengahzi, or the “red lines” Obama drew for Syria? Surely, Putin veteran is drinking vodka and playing chess and laughing at Obama’s threats.

Obama has recently spoken of “resetting” our relationship with Russia. Does that mean that the American people should start learning Russian?

Obama promised a new America, and we got it.  There has never been a time when American has been less respected by the world.

The only people who fear Obama are Americans.

What we are looking for is the Post American President brought before a military tribunal and tried for treason.

The author asks “Who could have imagined?” I’d say almost 50% of us ‘imagined’.

I disagree, Putin knows he can’t beat America’s military, It’s just that he knows Obama will never use it. Put Dick Cheny in charge of the Ukraine response, and Putin would have his troops back in Moscow by St Patricks day.

Are you suggesting we send troops to fight Russia in the Ukraine?

America doesn’t have any more power.

What America has is a bunch of sissies and pansies.

Yes, unless you want a modern Hitler to roll across Moldova, Romania, and Poland, in addition to establishing equatorial naval facilities in the 8 countries who he negotiated with like Cuba and Venezuela, just to name 2. People need to wise up, does establishing 8 naval ports in the Western Hemisphere sound like a plan that will end in the Crimea?

This country has only a small glimpse of the moral high ground left. It’s got to be a reach to tell Putin he can’t invade after the U.S. went 7,000 miles to invade and occupy a sovereign Iraq.

I will say that this now makes me think Obama is not a communist as I wondered. They treat each other with a little more mutual respect, and I ain’t seeing that.

Obama can’t competently operate his administration, let alone the War Room.

“I didn’t know Ukraine attacked Kuwait.”

They didn’t. The first Gulf War wasn’t worth one American life as long as the Royal Family of Kuwait chose to sit out the war in safety in Europe. If your country is worth fighting for then it’s worth fighting for. I saw little evidence of that from the Royal Family of Kuwait.

Hey watch out! Dear Leader may decide to forego all etiquette and issue a strongly worded “Triple Dog Dare” if Putin doesn’t bend to Brave Barak’s demands!!

Marxists have no respect for Leninists. That is the issue at stake between Putin and Obama. O is an unreconstructed, nieve Leninist. He is not, however, an idealist. He is utopian with the caveat that he believes in his personal messianic magnetism. Much like Mao, however, Obama is a profligate covered with a thick petina of moral terpitude. He is a reprobate.
Mao was a thoreoughly disgusting man. He infected thousands of young virgins with STDs, sleeping with several nightly for most of his life. Like Obama he carried a stench that was too awful to be around. Mao wallowed naked in a small pool most days. Kissinger’s first audience with Mao was in such circumstances. Mao’s teeth were thick with green scum. Remember, Michelle complains her husband stinks. It is unlikely their marriage is consummated.
Putin is a man of diabolical character. He is much more in the vein of Stalin, megalomaniacal without the schizophrenia. Stalin was insane. Putin is diabolical. Obama does not have the wit to play in Putin’s sandbox.

Communist leaders have no particular respect for each other. They are thugs who have risen on the bodiies of competitors.
