Uproar over DC’s ‘selfie’ support for Ukraine
NY Post ^ | 3/28/14 | Carl Campanile and Post Wires

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 wasn’t 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 America’s chief diplomatic perch was embarrassing.

“No wonder Putin covers his mouth when speaking to Obama, perhaps to hide his laugh?” wrote another blogger.

In another time, we would send aid of various forms, now we send selfies. They treat us as less than serfs, pray.

The Obama administration is all show; all pomp.

All hat, no cattle.

A joke to any part of the sane world.

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”???

Putin is probably afraid of catching something.

It really is. This once great nation has been reduced to sending selfies to support its allies. And they see nothing wrong with it.
Almost enough to make me say “sorry, I am a Canadian”

We incite this kind of dangerous turmoil with fellow globalist, transnational muck, and then follow up with support like that.

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.

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.

"But the cheerleading for beleaguered Ukraine wasn’t trending or scaring off bully Putin, said critics in the blogosphere. "

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.

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.
