Vice President Joe Biden is heading to Europe to send a clear signal to Russian President Vladimir Putin (POO´-tihn) about his intervention in Ukraine. Biden leaves Monday evening for Warsaw, where he´ll meet Tuesday with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk and President Bronislaw Komorowski. He´ll meet separately with Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves. In Lithuania, Biden plans to meet with President Dalia Grybauskaite and Latvia´s President Andris Berzins. The meetings with the NATO allies are part of a broader U.S. campaign to persuade Putin to back off in Ukraine. As Biden was preparing to leave for Europe, Putin recognized Crimea´s independence

So, what signal will this send?

Oh for the love of Pete. I just read that someone from Putin’s regime asked if the list of sanctions was compiled by a prankster - now Biden actually going over there? These guys are going to split a gut laughing.

I think “prankster” was a translation error, and he really meant “Joker”

Wow dang I really do need reading glasses. I read that Biden’s head is heading to Europe to send to Putin. I’m like do we really want to send something EMPTY over to Putin to scare.

As if “Preznit Mom-Jeans” hasn’t provided Putin and Russia with enough laughs via his pathetic “sanctions,” here comes the doofus Biden to cement America’s laughingstock status all around the globe.

The infamous weakness and impotence of the Carter-era years are looking like glory years compared to what is now happening in this country.

Yes, I heard both. Drudge has prankster, but I also heard a report saying joker.

Either way, what on earth did everyone expect from a curtain-hanging, bike-riding community organizer (I still don’t know what that is....I have lived in several communities and we’ve never had an organizer).

Meanwhile Putin will steal the show by telling Russians Crimea is going to return home. His already stratospheric popularity will reach new heights. He is playing to his home turf.

All Biden can do is offer NATO allies small talk but no real action.

My theory is that terrorists will use the missing Malaysian Airliner , repainted like AF-1 , to capture the Vice President and hold him hostage.

The entire world outside of clueless American voters knows very well Obama will do nothing at all other than bleat.

The sad part is, clueless American voters will believe he's actually accomplished something, or at least the .05% who keep track of what is happening in the world past the end of their nose.

This administration is unbelievably pathetic.

This would be hilarious if it was not so serious. The Ukraine is an important obstacle to Russia’s expansion and itself a valuable asset. Its being shoplifted by a bunch of thugs and the only way out is WW3.

This the latest sanction - Putin has to put up with Biden until he gives Crimea back. If not, he has to sleep with Pelosi.

That’ll show him who’s the tough guy.

Biden’s message:

That will set Vlad running - straight into Ukraine.

I bet Putin drops in and I mean literally drops in on the Whitehouse by a HALO jump, grabs several cans of Spray and Seal, sprays every square inch of Obama and Biden, uses a leafblower to blow hot flaming pink fuzz and sequins all over them and then duck marches them out of the Whitehouse.

well now that I have had my coffee so to speak and that dream remnant is fading away I can speculate that more than Like Putin will listen to Biden, they will have a reasonable conversation in as such as one can have with Biden and the will part ways.

BUT....warmongers who fear the unknown in America just cannot stop beating the drums, sharpening the axes, pitchforks and rhetoric, no they want war with Russia.

Seems unusually odd the MSM wants war isn’t it?

Does Obama really have a plan, a false flag war of Russia attacking the US, how do we know IF it happened that its really a US missile from an Ohio class sub instead of from Russia?

All this hype is just the same as the run up to WWE Wrestlemania pay per view event. But just what if Obama has given an order to launch against the US, making America believe Russia did it?
