Vacationing in Florida, President Barack Obama continued his telephone consultations with world leaders on Ukraine, speaking one on one Saturday with the leaders of three European powers and collectively with the heads of the three Baltic states, White House said.

Obama held individual conversations with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi and French President Francois Hollande. He also held a conference call with Latvian President Andris Berzins, Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite and Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves.

On the conference call, Obama reaffirmed the United States' "unwavering commitment" to its collective defense commitments under NATO and "enduring support for the security and democracy of our Baltic allies," the White House said. It said the Baltic leaders welcomed the additional support.

In his talks with Cameron, Hollande and Renzi, Obama welcomed the unified position of the United States and the European Union on Russian actions in Ukraine, including by the European Council, which is made up of EU leaders. The council voted this week to condemn Russia's action, demand the immediate withdrawal of its forces and seek access to Crimea for international monitors.

Russian forces invaded Crimea a week ago in a move that the U.S. and its allies have strongly condemned as a violation of international law.

"It is a tale. Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury. Signifying nothing."

Look at what he said, "Obama reaffirmed the United States' 'unwavering commitment' to its collective defense commitments under NATO." Does anyone think Pooty Poot will say "what the heck" and barrel on into NATO countries? Please. The operative question is if he'll honor Clinton's commitment to Ukraine. Anything else is wasted breath.

With Obama’s luck, Putin with hit the golf ball high up, out of the sand pit, only to sail down and hit Obama in the left eye, blinding him for the remainder of the summit. Game Over!
The handlers rush out onto the grassy golf course to Obama’s aid. Obama is wheelchaired off the golf course, ball still impacted in his left eye socket. The Russians serve a round of vodka, and replay the GIF of the incident over and over on their smart phones.
