Skip to comments.Is Obama weak against Putin?
Posted on 03/29/2014 1:07:58 PM PDT by Jim Robinson
(CNN) -- I recall being an undergraduate in Russian Studies at Amherst College when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in December 1979. I was flabbergasted when then-President Carter initially expressed surprise that Leonid Brezhnev and his cronies decided to undertake that ill-fated adventure. Just the little I knew of Soviet history at that time led me to conclude that one should never be naïve about Russia. Wisely, the Carter administration soon implemented a wide-ranging and powerful set of sanctions against the USSR.
By comparison, Barack Obama is now making Jimmy Carter look like Attila the Hun with a series of empty threats and "too little, too late" punitive measures against Putin's Russia.
On February 28, President Obama warned Russia not to take military action against Crimea, and if he did so, serious "costs" would be imposed. A few weeks later, Crimea was annexed to Russia and virtually no serious "costs" have been incurred from U.S. sanctions.
Now Obama and our European allies have virtually conceded Crimea, but again warn Putin that we really mean it this time, that if you take military action in Ukraine outside Crimea, you will be really sorry!
I think the only thing that has surprised Putin is how weak Obama's response has been. The administration was not prepared for the contingency that Putin would act so brazenly.

Weak isn’t half of it.
Forget about any pretensions of wanting to prevent IslamoNazi nuclear bomb attacks on America. Forget about Russian military movements. Our government (or whatever its called) thinks it has far, far more important horrors to prevent!
Yup. Weakness doesn’t even begin to describe it.
"Weak? If you're weak, you can keep being weak."
"Earlier today Putin reached out to Obama, seeking a way to resolve the problem in Crimea."
Yeah. Sure. Putin is scared, and he's asking Obama to rescue him.
The posted article seems much more accurate: Obama is in way over his head.
Any student of rogue nuclear states understands with perfect clarity that a strike on a major American city is imminent. Cow farts will not save us this time.
It's called chumming the fish.
Where is that pic I have of a bear in the woods!
So, why should I care about the Crimea that's 8000 miles away from my home?
And that includes Obamacare.
Does a bear shit in the woods?
Yeah. He has that.
No....Obama sent Putin a list of “demands”. The phone call was in response to those “secret demands”.
Obama only gets tough with nuns.
And John Boehner.
Obama: Mr. President, after the election, I will have more flexibility...
Medvedev: Mr. President, I see. I will make sure to transmit this information to Vladimir Vladimorovich and see that he gets it.
Does a fat dog fart? Does a bear sh*t in the woods? Is the Pope Catholic? (wait a minute....that one might not be so good)
I wonder how much the two are in cahoots with each other.
Does Elmer Fudd have trouble with the letter 'R'?
I wonder what city the Chargers will move to.
He’s weak against a wet paper bag....
Bear, Catholic, Pope, woods
“jyou dahnt vahnt to undo your belt. Jyou miawt have a flabalanche “.
“listen to me now and hear me later”
Jimmy Carter looks like Atillla the Hun and Neville Chamberlain looks like Hannibal compared to dear leader.
Dear leader would be way over his head in a kiddie pool.
I believe Zer0 sees America’s military as a diversion of money from his Marxist agenda. Thus, a foreign policy is a side show. Zer0 is the ultimate lame-suck. He can do nothing and things are going where he wants. Besides, his Muslim friends are doing his bidding as America and the West are sitting ducks to the evil they represent.
Obama keeps drawing these yellow lines in the snow.
Pretty much my opinion as well.
Is Obama weak against Putin? Yes, and by design. The goal is to punish America, even if that takes the form of making himself look like a gelding.
No humiliation is too great IF, in the end, America is brought low. Remember, his mentors were Marxists. They labor to destroy Christianity and capitalism.
——The goal is to punish America——
I would argue to the contrary.
Obama is a pacifist, an antiwar scion of the 60’s. That was the age of the great victory, the war in Vietnam was damned and ended. There shall be no more war. There shall be peace through diplomacy, through accommodation, through compromise. There can be no war because war is abolished, ended for all time.
That is what they believe and think. The destruction of American strength is just collateral damage to the pacifist notions.
I thank you for not spelling out the vulgarity, unlike what library user did. FR does have its standards, you know, and they are good ones.
And no, "fart" is not considered a vulgarity, at least to me.
> Obama is now making Jimmy Carter look like Attila the Hun
Looks like a great idea for a tagline. LOL!!
Sorry, I disagree. I understand your point, and pacifism MAY be a part of his philosophy, but the OVERALL goal is too take America down.
His mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, was a member of the Communist Party USA and apparently “raised” Obama during his teen years.
The goal, I am sure you know, of Communists in the 60s and 70s was to take down America.
I think this is very, very different from the wrong-headed pacifistic liberalism of people like Jimmy Carter. Carter’s ilk believe in pacifism for the sake of creating harmony and kumbaya moments with our enemies. It is dangerous and ignorant, but not malevolent. I think BO’s approach is done with the very INTENT of hurting the USA.
Why else would he propose cutting our defenses to pre-WWII levels? Why else would he be firing military leaders in what appears to be an unprecedented fashion? Why else would he be celebrating sodomy and other perversions openly in the ranks? Why else would at least TWO military drones just HAPPEN to fall in the hands of the enemy? Why else would we have toothless sanctions against a Russian bear?
This isn’t a “pie in the sky” dream of unity and harmony—it is a deliberate attempt to use the short span of time given to manipulate our defenses to make us weak. AT least that is how I see it.
One of them is hiding their camel toe.
...................This will only bait the bear to lash out to demonstrate who is really weak and who is strong. It is a game that Obama is not psychologically equipped to understand, let alone win.”.................
Unfortunately, it is not Zer0’s psychology that will win a war with Russia, it will be the guts and glory of our military to follow our CIC,
Clown in Communism!
Is the Pope a catholic?
Obama probably thinks all will work out so he comes out smelling like a rose. You can bet he has a whole crew and half the MSM working out a hundred different propaganda scenarios to cover all the bases. He hasn’t been called to task for anything - it fosters his ego and makes him feel invincible.
