Biden in Europe to ‘reassure our allies’ over Russia’s moves in Ukraine
Washington Post ^ | 3/18/2014 | Scott Wilson

Posted on 03/18/2014 12:37:23 PM PDT by rjsimmon

WARSAW — Vice President Biden sought in a visit to the Polish capital Tuesday to reassure allies anxious over Russia’s takeover of Crimea, denouncing Moscow moves to annex the region as a “blatant, blatant disregard of international law.”

Appearing with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Biden offered the moral support of a “steadfast ally” but promised only modest assistance to help Poland modernize its army and explore how to lessen its dependence on Russian natural gas.

I’m sure Biden’s presence is very reassuring.

I’d rather he reassure the American people by staying here and minding his own business.

Biden is among the top 2-3 dumbest politicians in Washington DE, and that is saying a lot cause nearly all the demoCRAPS are dumber than dirt, as well as most of the Repubs..... so I am sure that a buffoon like Biden does very little to reassure our East European friends. Does Biden even realize what country he is actually in at any point in time?

Biden is going to “smooth things over.” So, just how long does it take to build a good fallout shelter?

Everytime I see VP Biden doing something, anything, I hear Dr. Venkman talking to Dr. Stanz in Ghostbusters:

Dr Ray Stantz: "Gozer the Gozerian... good evening. As a duly designated representative of the City, County and State of New York, I order you to cease any and all supernatural activity and return forthwith to your place of origin or to the nearest convenient parallel dimension."

Dr. Peter Venkman: [Sarcastically] "That oughta do it. Thanks very much, Ray."

It would be one thing if the Fraud-in-Chief would step in and save the day after Biden spooges all over things, but BHO is so utterly incompetent that they both end up looking like Laurel and Hardy.

Bad analogy, I know, because L&H were comic geniuses...

Are these the same allies that we reneged on with our promise of missile defense systems when Russia threw a fit over it? Wasn’t that right before Hillary presented Russia with a “reset” button?

I’m sure our Allies feel safe with reassurances from Biden.

Snoopy has more credibility than Obama/Biden.

You would have to explain what a globe is first. "Here... this ball wrapped in a map that shows all the countries of the world....."

Just the man to make them even more nervous and leave them wondering how their US security umbrella could collapse so quickly and completely.

Actually, it made me think of a different line from the same movie: "Yes it's true...this man has no dick."

This entire conflict will wind down quickly as soon as Obama figures out that it is the UKRAINE that Putin is after, not Obama’s COCAINE.

Obama and Kerry threaten our allies while Biden tries to reassure Poland? And Michelle is on another expensive taxpayer vacation spending our money admiring...communist China?

Seriously? Biden?

I guess Kerry has lost all credibility.

If they want to send a liberal comic from the Senate, why not Al Franken?

Well, I suppose he does have experience. Not that he was funny, but he tried. Biden is funny but he ain't tryin' to be. All are truly a joke.

Did another Democrat administration promise to protect The Ukraine, in return for turning the nukes in their possession over to Russia?

I hope Taiwan and Japan are paying attention.

Regardless of what Biden does in Europe, we need to remember that he is a domestic enemy of Americans. That should be our first and only concern.
