Obama Blasts Russia in Tense Call With Putin Over Ukraine
newsmax ^ | 4/14/14 | staff

Posted on 04/14/2014 5:41:43 PM PDT by Nachum

U.S. President Barack Obama told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday that Russia's actions in Ukraine were not conducive to a diplomatic solution of the crisis in that country, and the White House warned that Moscow would suffer further costs for its behavior.

Obama spoke to Putin at the Russians' request, a senior administration official said, describing the call as "frank and direct," a diplomatic construction that usually means tense.

"The president made clear that the diplomatic path was open and our preferred way ahead, but that Russia's actions are neither consistent with or conducive to that," the official said.

Obama told Putin that Kiev had made "real offers" to address concerns about the decentralization of powers to local governments in the country.

"That is a matter for Ukrainians to decide," the official said. "We have always and will continue to support an inclusive process."

Earlier, U.S. officials stopped short of announcing a new set of sanctions against Russia but said they were in consultations with European partners about the prospect.

I’m sure that Putin was intimidated by Obama’s Election year Kabuki theater.

Talking tough from a position of weakness is a good way to buy a butt kickin.

Unfortunately it wouldn’t be Obama showing up for the fight.

Most powerful people normally back up their words with action ....

Obama seems to think his mere words have a god like quality.....

If he was even half a leader the least he could do is supply the Ukranians with some upgraded weapons and technology....

If anything to show Putin he means business....

This worm of a man sends them c-rations ....

OMG...will Obama authorize a toilet paper rolling of Putin's house or, gasp, will he try to egg Putin's limo.

Inquiring minds want to know.

I’m sure that Putin is shaking in his boots after being threatened by Obama. Shaking with laughter, that.

Putin’s reply to Obie was to play, very loudly, Judy Collin’s song “Send in the Clowns”, “Everybody Plays the Fool, Some Time” (Main Ingredients?), James Darren’s song about a clown, the Everly Brothers “Kathy’s Clown”, and somebody’s “The Clown Cried”.

He then put up a picture of Obama dressed as BOZO the Clown on a billboard in Moscow Square, right next to Lubianka Prison (These KGB guys have notice touches to their humor, don’t they?).

With 75+ billion dollars, and an Olympic gymnast girlfriend; I’m sure Putin has better things to do with his time, than listening to Obama rant at him.

Whoa. Must have been serious for His Arrogance to pull on his Mom jeans and give Putin what for over the phone. I wonder if he is going to direct Slow Joe or Kerry-Heinz to draft up one of those famous Mrs. Slick Willy “Stern Letters” to Putin.

As I recall, White House press releases regarding phone conversations between the Messiah and other World Leaders often tell a different tale about who said what to who than do the press releases issued by the other World Leaders.

I wonder how the Kremlin's press release will describe this conversation. I wonder which one will be the more accurate...

Did Obama repeatedly pummel Putin by hitting him in the chest with his girly fists while Putin bear hugs him? “You brute!”

Bonus points for an obscure reference to "Blazing Saddles".

I aqm sure Vlad the shirtless is smiling like a barracuda.

Vlad has Obama by the short hairs and there is NOTHING Obama can do but act as US Presidents always do, send in the so called neo-colonial US troops....and that is against Barrackitos ideology.
