Obama: No, Romney Was Wrong. Russia Is Weak, Not Strong.
Yahoo News ^ | 3/25/2014 | Philip Bump

Posted on 03/26/2014 1:56:35 AM PDT by South40

During a press conference today in The Netherlands, ABC's Jonathan Karl asked President Obama if he thought "Mitt Romney had a point" when he said in 2012 that Russia was America's "number one" geopolitical foe. Obama took advantage of the question to slam his current political opponent, Vladimir Putin.

Obama thinks that rhetorically reduce Putin's military capability. Any nation with ICBMs and nukes is not a regional power. He'd better wake up. Putin is a real threat and a real supporter in materiel way of Iran becoming a nuclear power.

All of this makes one wonder what exactly he knows of world affairs, and who he has on the staff that is an international expert. Resume-wise, this is the weakest President ever...on world affairs, and I wonder how any historian can explain this mess fifty years into the future.

Putin is a real threat and a real supporter in materiel ways and sceintific ways of Iran becoming a nuclear power. Obama is as naive as the Putinistas who think Putin's end goal is a conservative, God-worshiping utopia.

after this jug-eared piece of excrement has done everything possible to weaken America economically, morally, militarily, and every other way his handlers can think of for almost six years, he is gonna call Russia "weak" ?????

no wonder the Europeans are putting funny photos in their publications of this anti-American jackass.

If Russia is so weak, then why aren’t our troops in Ukraine right now pushing back?

If Russia is so weak, why can they use force to get things done and we can only use sanctions and strongly worded letters?

No, not the Black Knight. More like the French taunter.

Because weak countries tend to successfully claim pieces of sovereign nations? I hope China doesn’t try to show us how weak they are.

One thing the jug-eared jackass will not do is admit that he is wrong about anything.

If Russia is weak, then why can't anyone stop them?

Cause we're weaker, perhaps?

Because he can't think or lead his way around the Russian question, bozo is impotently applying to a state the schoolmarm's moral criticism which they apply to individuals. The schoolmarm however has absolute control over the individual in a classroom. bozo has no balls or brains and it is that assessment on Putin's part that has gotten things where they are.

You must try to think like a ‘Progressive’. (I know it’s hard)
Obama & Co don’t want national sovereignty. They believe that the international community should speak with one voice. That the international institutions (IMF, UN, NATO) should come together and solve problems.
This ‘weak not strong’ (kinda sounds like, ‘I know you are but what am I’ playground stuff to me) is an attempt to isolate Russia from the above listed. See Solipsism.

I see you get it. Some people around here refuse to accept that Obama is not going to do as they wish with Russia.

He is doing exactly what the “global community” wants. The Global Community is the NWO, run by far leftists worldwide. They are also planning on subjugating people, they will just woo them nicely...at first.

Obama will never ever admit he was ever wrong.

We have a POTUS wh resides in President Land of the fictional recesses of his mind.

Baghdad Bob could handle more truth than this guy.

I think the Affirmative Action President who can’t cope with reality is a great threat to our country.

To quote Boehner’s remark about Reid, the President is “unhinged.”

There may be a bunch of ‘Progressives’ that believe they are in control of a NWO. Hate to break the news to them but it can only work in their little minds. They do mean to torture the rest of us with their arrogant power and wealth hoarding, though.
Look around the world today. There has never been so many conflicts.
This all stems from a ‘Progressive’ corrupt ideology. We all know that corruption is not ultimately sustainable and what we have now is an unchecked progress toward absolute tyranny driven by personal greed for power. This will not end well.

What will our Brilliant Beloved Leaders do when the Russian Navy fills the Gulf of Mexico from bases in Cuba? Stick out their tongues?

“...I wonder how any historian can explain this mess fifty years into the future.”

You think historians judge prior presidents on objective measures? Our worst presidents, the ones that ushered in the greatest economic catastrophe, the greatest domestic destruction, and oversaw the most anti-American administrations are lauded as luminaries.

On what planet do you think Romney was wrong, Obama? I know it isn’t Earth. Really you think Putin is weak? I guess the pot you smoked and the drugs you took messed up the little brain cells you have.

In other words, Obama is trying to convince us he isn’t the clown moron he is since if Russia is weak we have no need to stand up to them which clearly Obama has no intention of doing. Ass cover 101.
