Russia sends troops, Obama administration sends a selfie
New York Post ^ | 3/28/2014 | Carl Campanile

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.

Psaki is one of most obnoxious spokesidiots in this administration.

This childish, infantile BS has me in a white hog rage today. And my fellow Americans placed this group of children in charge. Sad and enraging.

FAA, a "white hog rage" sounds just as good.

A word of advice, channel your rage. I have a feeling you haven't seen anything yet.

I am glad to see someone else has the same opinion I do of Psaki. She was the worst during the campaign, even more so than Stephanie Cutter.

Just look at that face, that soulless conceited grin from ear to ear, the hipster pose, the wanna-be celebrity striving to be unleashed. What I really like is the utter smug self-satisfaction that stems from her deep seated conviction that this posturing is a meaningful way of “doing something” to “raise awareness” by showing “solidarity” with Ukrainians.

The nullity of the language the left uses to describe political realities is the first clue that these people are pathetically deluded, shockingly ignorant, and so self-absorbed that no reality will ever penetrate the gauzy cocoon of their minds.

RE: 10

Yes, sounds like something out of the third chapter of Isaiah ...

Isaiah 3:4-5 And I will give children to be their princes, and babes shall rule over them. And the people shall be oppressed, every one by another, and every one by his neighbour: the child shall behave himself proudly against the ancient, and the base against the honourable.

This Nation has turned away from God, and we are reaping the bitter rewards.

If Obama went to Russia, Putin would kick him out for being a fag.

Being a serious world leader, Putin would refrain from beating Obama's sissy ass while he was doing it.
