I heard the "leader of the free world" on the radio this morning speaking from the White House on Russia's annexation of the Crimea. President Obama's big thought was about the "choices that the Russian government has made". It was delivered in the condescending tone of a grade-school guidance counselor lecturing Little Vladdy on the "bad choices" he kept making, and what's more "choices that have been rejected by..." Stand well back! "...the international community".
Other than that, the President announced he was imposing "sanctions" for more individuals in the Russian government thinking of visiting Disneyland or opening a savings account with the First National Bank of Dead Cactus Junction. If you're one of those so named and your wife's hassling you for a weekend of shopping on Madison Avenue or Rodeo Drive, tough: Obama's put you on the No-Shop list. For anybody in the Kremlin who still bothers watching US government press conferences, the only real danger from American "pressure" is that you may die laughing.

Miss Crabtree - Obama - tries to rap her ruler on the knuckles of a twelve-hundred-pound gorilla in the classroom.
It’d be funny if it weren’t so pathetic.
Thus, American foreign policy of the higher consciousness: no gunboat diplomacy, just gayboat diplomacy.
So, while Putin, the mullahs, and the Chinese Politburo enjoy the run of the planet, US foreign policy is, as those kids who make "bad choices" like to say, "totally gay".
That’s where Obama got his campaign theme:
“Forward, the Light Brigade!”
Was there a man dismay’d?
Not tho’ the soldier knew
Someone had blunder’d:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.
The problem, as others have pointed out many times, is not the homosexual sitting in the White House. Its the 51% of Americans who thought he was the cat’s meow.
Politics always must rest upon a moral foundation. In the absence of that foundation you get what you get which is evil limited only by its sheer incompetence. And a populace that can’t figure out what is wrong if they can ever be roused to think about it at all.
Putin’s advance is “flawed logic,” unlike 99% of the DNC platform, which advocates all-abortion-all-the-time and welfare as good for minorities, and advocates adding millions of unskilled laborers to a supply-heavy market as a way to give people a path to the middle class.
And Joe “flawed logic” Biden, good old Original Joe, himself advocates the logical tactic of shooting all of your shotgun’s rounds into the air, effectively disarming yourself, as a way to defend against intruders.
The next step for Obama will be to send Elton John and Billie Jean King to punish the Russians.
The purpose of NASA -- promote Islam.
The purpose of the Defense Department -- promote homosexuality.
The purpose the the State Department -- promote homosexuality.
What kind of president so we have, exactly? I think the answer is entirely too obvious.
Cue mental image of Churchill wagging his finger at Hitler and scolding him about the choices that he has made.
Yes, and we still have a problem when a large minority in those polls we see still support this evil azzhole. That’s right, they’d vote for him again.
I knew that Putin’s tough guy posturing was going to bring out the weakest in Obama as the latter tries to ‘man up’ and hurts himself trying.
If that is the case the fix is in. Bet heavy on his picks.
Just as Obama has displaced Jimmy Carter as America’s worst president, he’s also threatening to dislodge Neville Chamberlain from his 80-year-old perch as the universal metaphor for weakness in the face of aggression. How will we survive the next three years?
