Neither President Obama nor any other world leader can sway the mind of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
Putin is going to do what Putin is going to do, she said on CNNs State of the Union on Sunday.
Obamas foreign policy strategy has been attacked in recent weeks, with some accusing him of doing too little to stymie Russian intervention in Ukraine, where ongoing violence this month included the deaths of hundreds aboard a passenger jetliner. The U.S. has said Russia is at least indirectly responsible for that attack.
As far as Putin is concerned, hes a KGB guy who happens to be the president of Russia and hes going to do what hes going to do, no matter who else is in charge any place else in the word, Pelosi said. I would not judge his actions or his motivations by anything other than he is rooted in a KGB [mindset], insecure about Russias diminished role in the world. The U.S. has launched a set of sanctions against Russia and tried to rally countries around the world to follow suit, but Moscow has not backed off its support of pro-Russian separatists in Ukraine's east.
Speaking on the same CNN show, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said those sanctions clearly are not working and accused Obama of being AWOL.
Ongoing violence in Gaza and the rise of the al Qaeda-linked Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, which has gained ground amid a power vacuum in those countries, only makes clear the costs of a weakened U.S., he added.
Passive responses to naked aggression all over the world is our foreign policy, Graham said. Without American leadership, the world has become a very dangerous place and our allies like Israel and Ukraine suffer.
Strike me dead. Nancy Pelosi opens her mouth and something comes out that actually makes a modicum of sense?
I never thought I would experience anything like that. Now I can say I lived, and lived well.
Oh. Wait. I thought you said puttin'.
Obama can’t control Michelle, or Biden. Obama can’t control anything - he’s there to be a puppet.
And therein lies the problem.
Here's the answer...
What President controlled any Russian leader? The answer is none.
Obama is a world leader?
How do you solve a problem like Pu-tin?
How do you catch a cloud and pin it down?
A flibbertijbbet! A will-o-the-wisp! A clown!
Ronald Reagan crippled the Russians so badly their EVIL EMPIRE exploded.
But Ronald was not in control of the leader. Control is not the word that describes what Reagan did not Russia. He killed an economy but Russia is stronger today then they were then. He controlled nothing
Well then maybe he should call someone who can do the job he was elected to! mr. mulato doing his best(or worst) to make jimmah cawta look competent in comparison.
Unfortunately the converse is not true.
Russia is no way stronger today than they were then.
Russia is weaker, not stronger.
How can you compare their vast USSR military and geography and troop masses on our borders and the assault structure of their forces with an incredible number of Airborne Divisions and Helicopter Assault Brigades and bridge building brigades, with what is left to them now as their Warsaw pact has self destructed and most of those nations switching sides to America and it’s 28 nation NATO alliance?
Reagan faced 4 Russian leaders, and he led leader number 4 into his fatal mistakes that cost them the empire that this power and wealth obsessed KGB man would like to reassemble.
I guess you need to start reading Janes more. I talking about the new ones.
.... America’s strength and ability to influence world events was in it’s deterrence. This administration has systematically dismantled almost every vestige of deterrence built up over the past 50 years and destroyed all influence that this once great country once had. This world is evolving into something that will be quite uncontrollable .... peace and security will be something that we will recall only in our memories.
She really just meant they offered him their reset button and a little place in the NWO. He must have had a problem with the offer. Maybe enough wasn’t promised him. He sure is stubborn, says Nancy.
His band of NWO marxists is about to control all of us though, he is the front man who acts like he is never involved in anything, but he is.
