As Ukrainian protesters rallied against the Kremlin-backed government, were killed by government forces and weathered a subsequent Russian invasion, President Obama left it up to Vice President Joe Biden to directly communicate with the Ukrainian government. Obama even went so far as a skip a national security meeting on the Russian invasion at the beginning of March, which Biden joined via teleconference.

This is Obama’s method of “Leading from Behind.”

And what better “behind” could there be other than that of Joe Biden’s?

Øbama is simply trying to impeachment-proof his sorry arse by letting Slow Joe lose Iraq completely. “See? He’s a complete fool. Do you really want to impeach me and hand it all over to him?”

This ain't gonna work no how.

Biden has flat run out of children to give high level, high paying make work no show jobs to.

Sorry Iraq, the Ukraine just flat got there first. Not that it did them any good

It’s a complex, multifaceted problem with life-and-death consequences for tens of thousands, requiring the attention of ... Slow Joe Biden?
This might go right at the top of the writ of impeachment.

Pretty bad when every time the point person speaks you expect to hear a comic rim shot.

It’s 3:00 am.

Do you “really” want Obama answering the phone call? Biden might be stupid, but is he deliberately harmful?

...White House announced that Biden had jumped on the phone...

Of course. Even on the phone in his own bedroom, Obama can't have a coherent extemporaneous conversation during a crisis in real time with an ally.

I don’t want any of the clowns associated with this administration touching anything with moving parts.
They couldn’t run a two-year car funeral, particularly Plugs.
And Barney is VJ’s puppet. All B. wants to do is golf.

“Let JOE BIDEN deal with the Iraq crisis…!”

If you say it out loud, it sounds REALLY funny, just by itself…!
