The trip is part of a U.S. effort to pressure Russia over a military intervention in Crimea that has the entire region on edge.

What do you bet this is all a scheme cooked up by Putin and Obama? The crisis appears, things look ugly, but then Obama swoops in to make a deal and his poll numbers go up.

I've been thinking this since the beginning of this Ukraine story.

So, after John Horse-Face Kerry, they are sending Joe Foot-in-the-Mouth Biden to fix up the mess the Obama adm. has made in Eastern Europe?

God help us!

It is true that Putin would prefer that Americans elect more DemoRats to office, nationwide, because the DemoRat traitors are so damaging to America, so untrustworthy to allies, and so easy to slap the crap out of, internationally.

But cooked up by Putin and Obama? Nah, Putin's beating Obama like a rented mule cause Obama's dumber than that rented mule, and Putin enjoys humiliating the sissy.

Sending Slow Joe ... they’ve reached the bottom of the barrel ... maybe they could have recalled Mrs. Slick Willey to help out before scraping the sludge out of the bottom of the barrel!

Not so sure.

In the end we will likely see Obama and Putin as pals cooperating in the subjugation of Europe.

The only reason I don't think this is a Obama scheme is that the only way Obama wins is if they can peel Crimea away from Putin.

And that is not going to happen.

Here's a deal.

The Crimea (aka "The Playground of the Czars) becomes a "Federated State," Russia runs it, The Ukraine has representatives from it in their Parliament. O, let's call it an

Autonomous Region

When the Mombasa MF's Spin Team gets through with it, he will be a big hero to his base, just in time for the midterms. That's the plan, as delusional as it may just be.

You need another laff? Remember Biden is
(a)The Man Who Discovered "The Clean Negro," and
(b) was put on the ticket for his "Foreign Policy Expertise."
(c) Yes, kristinn, the Biden boy is an idiot. But actually quite a good pol. He has become a multi-millionaire at the game. So, don't sell Plugsy The Clown short, especially in this administration..

Sending Biden out for anything is a big mistake.
Send him out for a coke and fries and he’d return
witn coffee and a fried pie.

NO!!!

Wait till JF'Nkerry and BO are there with joebama THEN offer all three of them.

The beauty of this is that after WE all invest to help Russia 'buy them' they will pay us QUADRUPLE + to take them back- after putting up with their BS for a couple of weeks. Then they will be able to see that the three of them are worth more to them by being in 'our hair' here.

Kind of reverse of buying someone for what he is worth then selling him for what he thinks he is worth.
