Jimmy Obama
NY Post ^ | 3-4-14 | NY Post Editorial Board

Posted on 03/04/2014 3:45:38 PM PST by SJackson

Vladimir Putin has taken the measure of Barack Obama. He’s found Jimmy Carter.

Like Jimmy Carter, who boasted he was free of any “inordinate fear of communism,” Obama began his term as president vowing to “reset” relations with Russia.

Like Jimmy Carter, who conveyed weakness when Iran took our embassy staff hostage, Obama confirmed his own weakness when he drew a red line in Syria and then backed down from enforcing it.

Like Jimmy Carter, who was rewarded by Leonid Brezhnev with a Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Putin has returned Obama’s favor with a Russian invasion of Ukraine.

And just like Carter, who responded with what his staff called “a strong public statement,” Obama responded with his own statement saying he is “deeply concerned” by Russia’s military movement in Ukraine.

TOPICS: Editorial; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS:
A Republican successor would have boosted Obama's legacy. Imagine if Carter had eight years.

Krauthammer:

..... “you got to wonder what cosmos Obama and Kerry are living in” when they say Putin is acting out of weakness.

“I think he’s (Obama) delusional”....

Another similarity: Carter boycotted the Olympics, Obama is boycotting the Paralympics!

Won’t work, the mayors of New York and Boston are refusing to attend St Patrick’s day parades for lack of gay floats. I’m sure Obama would agree.

After all the layers are peeled away, Soetoro is nothing more than a bungling oaf, who is not even competent enough to be called a clown..

“Won’t work, the mayors of New York and Boston are refusing to attend St Patrick’s day parades for lack of gay floats.”

Interesting. Is there a down side?

“Interesting. Is there a down side?”

What a fascinating question. Politicians live for the limelight. What they’re saying is, “If you don’t let in gays I’m going to hold my breath and then you’ll be sorry.” But who will lose the free exposure? They’re the losers in this childish game.

Doubt it, those are probably poll driven actions. And Boston may be giving in and allowing a gay float. Might be in a smaller Boston parade, I don’t know. Nor do I understand what sexuality has to do with St. Patricks day.

I agree. However, to call him anything insults anything. What a quandary.

It’s been “reset” alright. Seems the liberals have saved the game from 1960 and decided to restart there.

Even Luser McPain kicked Obozo's skinny butt and called him a liar on Charlie Rose last night. That's quite a change for McPain.

But McPain still doesn't get it ..... he thinks Obozo is only incompetent. He hasn't reached the bottom dollar yet.

McCain misspeaks and sticks his foot in his mouth almost as much as Biden and Obama........

If 0bastard were merely a bumbling oaf, by chance he’d do or say something right once in a great while.
