Obama arrives alone for Putin G20 Syria dinner
breitbart.com ^ | 9/5/13 | afp

Posted on 09/05/2013 11:58:14 AM PDT by ColdOne

World leaders arrived Thursday for a dinner hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin where they would discuss the crisis in Syria, with US President Barack Obama showing up alone and well after the main group.

The main group of leaders led by Putin arrived together at the historic Peterhof palace outside Saint Petersburg, with British Prime Minister David Cameron and French President Francois Hollande seen talking animatedly at the back of the pack.

But Obama was nowhere to be seen and only arrived at the palace a good half an hour after the rest.

Skulking into the venue, I see, hoping nobody will notice him.

Very symbolic that he is alone at a dinner to discuss Syria.

Obama knows how to be a dramatic faggot, but he doesn’t know how not to be a clown.

In Arab culture, the guy who shows up last is the most important man. Having busness meetings with middle-easterners drove me nuts. Everybody wanted to be last. Sometimes they’d show, but would go back to their desk if they weren’t the last one.

Where is the media saying Putin will completely clobber this clown?

(Reagan-Gorby reference)

Of course in this instance Putin probably will clobber this clown.

Liberals are stupid, sick, demented fools.

I love the work they do at Breitbart.com, but they drive me crazy with the video commercials launching automatically as soon as you click through to one of their pages.

Surely they can make some money without being so garish as to drive people away?

If Obama’s overall goal as a devout Marxist and anti-colonialist is to undermine the authority of the US in the world, what better way than to be a complete buffoon in front of our chief geopolitical foe. He believes that knocking us down will elevate the rest of the world.

Yes, that's what Obama did to the Dalai Llama, right?

Theoretically, Muslims have some level of respect for "People of the Book" (Jews and Christians) but they have nothing but disdain for othe religions (the Dalai Llama gets the garbage route).

We are led by a Muslim terrorist and I think Putin knows it.

I wasn't late. I wasn't alone.

It was the other G20 leaders... who were early... and alone, without me.

My credibility isn't on the line.

It's the other G20 leaders' credibility that's on the line... for being early... without me.

Spasiba... Akbar.

That's Obama’s MO. He fancies himself as a/the Messiah and always wants to make a grand entrance. However, the world's leaders probably hope that he will just get lost, once and forever?

“Historic death stare”???? It looks more like a petulant child giving you a dirty look ‘cause you wouldn’t let them do something they wanted to do.

Quite the opposite I think. BO is a Leo. They like to arrive late so their appearance is noticed and everything stops while proper acknowledgment of their mere presence takes place. Unfortunately what his ego wouldn’t let him acknowledge is the fact that most probably didn’t care whether he showed up or not.

Our President came late...and alone...because absolutely nobody responded to his personal charm during the day and agreed to support him on a Syrian attack.

He was "dissed". And let's all understand that's what it was -- a unanimous "dissing".

So, His Petulance arrives late...and alone.

That'll show 'em...!!!

No one likes him do they? He’s arrogant, self centered and boring, no sense of humor and dull. If any of us had a conversation with him, we would be amazed at how uneducated and aware he is.

There’s nothing unique about Breitbart’s having a commercial before a featured video. Almost every tv media outlet has that (not so much newspapers).
