Posted on 03/28/2014 6:23:28 AM PDT by jimbo123
Russian leader Vladmir Putin sent in troops and tanks to invade neighboring Ukraine and the Obama administration is coming to the rescue with . . . selfies!
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki was mocked Thursday after posting a photo of herself on Twitter holding a sign that read #UnitedForUkraine @StateDeptSpox.
Psaki, who has worked closely with President Obama since his 2008 campaign and is the chief communications adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry, is smiling and giving a thumbs-up in the photo.
But the cheerleading for beleaguered Ukraine wasnt trending or scaring off bully Putin, said critics in the blogosphere.
Presenting The Latest US Strategy to Counter Russian Aggression, a snarky blogger posted on zerohedge.com. #Selfies!
Critics said the photo from Americas chief diplomatic perch was embarrassing.
No wonder Putin covers his mouth when speaking to Obama, perhaps to hide his laugh? wrote another blogger.

GOOD LORD......is this what we have decended into? These people are quite clearly insane. Like Glue stiffing crazy.
How ya like me now, punk!
(sigh) We are so scrood.
Come on, Pale Horse.
In another time, we would send aid of various forms, now we send selfies. They treat us as less than serfs, pray.
It is so embarrassing.
why the news blackout on venezuela?
The young folks there are in full revolution against the government
It’s that “flexibility” toward Russia kicking in that Obummer pledged to Pooty at the open mic moment before the 2012 election. Commies stick together for the good of the cause.
Where are all the Americans who have pledged to defend the Constitution from all enemies, “both foreign and domestic”???
“Grownup” acting like a kid. The whole world has to be laughing at this administration.
Reminds me of that “Sorry World” crap after Bush was re-elected.
Only one thing left for 0bama to do.
Yes he will have to man up and take the big step.
DOUBLE SECRET PROBATION for Vlad!
the left is living proof that even morons can get a job.
It’s not a selfie.
Yet another Obama campaign worker rewarded with a high-end taxpayer-paid position for which she was totally unqualified.
“why the news blackout on venezuela?”
Because it’s a failing socialist regime?
are those girdle lines I see emanating through the yellow skirt?
We incite this kind of dangerous turmoil with fellow globalist, transnational muck, and then follow up with support like that.
The Bay of Piglets.
These are the folks who think “awareness” is the solution to problems.
We could send a billion signatures to Putin and it will literally accomplish nothing. Putin knows this and knows it’s all we’ll do.
Now I know why the democrats are always cutting the military.
We are never going to use the military when we can post these pictures. So why have the military ?
This is an illustration of the difference between academic theory and reality. Obama is an assistant-manager president, working out of a textbook and the flexibility given him by his supervisors.
Looks like we have a new weapon in our diplomatic and military arsenal: Fivehead.
Putin is not a bully, a bully is scared off once you face him, her, or it down, no obama is a bully, kerry is a bully, but Putin, while not the guy I would live under is not a bully and should never be treated as if he were.
Putin is a rock solid killer, a man who, if crossed, will use whatever weapons he has at his disposal to kill you. If Maine were part of Russia, instead of the US, while we would still be moving towards secession, we would have to be prepared for an invasion after the vote, not so with the US.
There is no “Fail’ sign the even comes close to this.................Triple quadruple face-palm fail....................
i thought selfies were pics that someone took of himself... usually the person has the phone or camera in his hand and you can tell by his arm sticking forward and up... i guess she could have put the camera/phone on a tripod or something...

Hardly. Putin is a preening tin pot czar. Look at his targets and tactics. Weak countries who can’t fight back. Homo army w/o insignia and wearing masks. That isn’t strength. It’s faggotry.
Stunningly immature behavior from the most self important crew in US history.
Children in charge. Disgusting; they think a large war is some social networking event or something
LOL,, roughly “Sanctions, Barack Obama is forbidden to approach within 40 meters of me”.
And there are three more years of this Smart Diplomacy(TM) ahead. Sigh.
On top of everything else wrong with this picture...
She has panty line!! :-)
CHILDREN...we have UNSERIOUS CHILDREN running our once fine government!!
I don’t think there are too many women who still wear those. Control top pantyhose took care of that.
there’s at least one and she made a selfie
