Exclusive: Russia Will Sanction U.S. Senators
dailybeast ^ | 3/17/14 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 03/17/2014 1:48:33 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper

Putin is set to respond to Obama's sanctions of Russian officials with his own list. Several U.S. Senators and officials will be banned from visiting Russia, including Sen. Dick Durbin.

U.S. senators, congressmen and top Obama administration officials are sure to be on Vladimir Putin’s sanctions list; a response to the Obama Administration’s announcement on Monday that 7 Russian officials and 4 Ukrainian officials would be barred from holding assets or traveling to the United States.

B Hussein Obama put a half dozen or so Russians on a sanctions list, so Putin does the same...

This is what the weakness of the worse-than-Carter Presidency has wrought....the Russian bear laughing in the face of an American nation wherein the great causes of the federal government are promoting sodomy, destroying free markets and jobs, and taking over health care.

Putin is expanding his nation, Obama is shrinking ours.

Besides Durbin, there are many, many others of Obama's ilk... I'd like to sanction!

Somehow I suspect this will hurt American senators a lot more than it will hurt Russian Senators.

It is funny! However I must say that I am somewhat embarrassed to say I am from the USA lately.

Our politicians are too busy playing tidily wink with homosexuals and destroying lives of hard working Americans to care about anything else.

I know what you mean. It's the opposite of what Michelle said. She said for the first time in her life she was proud of her country.

Since 2009, I've been embarrassed of my country for the first time in my life.

You see Obama? The world does not respect weakness. If you go around appologizing for America all the time, what’s going to happen? You will lose significance.

Putin is going to repeat history such as the French assisting Americans in the Revolutionary War. He is going to rally up the Tea Party and form an alliance, cause he is sick and tired of that lame rooster sitting in the Whitehouse trying to start WW3.

If only we could ban Durbin from visiting the US.

US Senators going over to Ukraine and embracing the coup-installed government there was wildly inappropriate. What if Russian elected politicians came over here and said they’d support the thugs who violently overthrew a government?

You know that this whole scenario was set up to deflect the debacle known as Obamaramacare.

Sort of a Wag the Dog’s gonads. If there were EVER two politicians that shared the same ideals and dreams it is Putin and Obama. They are VERY good friends.This is just Vlad tossing some relief to the Indonesian.

Will it? How many American Senators own assets in Russia? How many Russian Senators own assets here? I suspect the latter is a much larger number.

Putin is probably 20 moves ahead of the manchild Obama. One is playing multi-level chess and the other is playing tiddlywinks.

Since about 70-80 most of our Senators are working for Mexico and otherwise destroying our nation’s future by turning our children and grandchildren into debt slaves, I would like to sanction them, too.

The US has no right to complain about bans and asset freezes being imposed on its top officials. So they have anti-Russian views? Turnabout is fair play, indeed.

When you start down this road, no telling where it ends up.
