Romney was 'spot on right' about Russia leading up to the 2012 elections.

(doesn't Russia's actions/Putin's comments look familiar to what Germany/ Hitler did back in the 40's ?)

 

God help us all for the next 3 years under a ignorant & foolish Obama !

What actions has Obama taken in foreign policy in the last five years to suggest to China that Obama would defend "Formosa" (For those ignorant of history, that would be Taiwan)?


I can not think of a single action.  I can think of fifty actions or inactions, or dozens of  tough talk and no follow through, or dozens of tough talk and then total reversals.


Any brainless thumb downers willing to enlighten me?  And Dumbocrat Hacks willing to tell us how Obama is a man of his word, has clue about foreign policy, has stood firm on any "red line"?


No, I did not thinks so.  Brainless Democrat voters.

You have to be in control and be clear and forceful BEFORE rogue nations act.  It is a lot harder to deal with situations after they arise.  If Putin had know Obama was not a fool and a brainless moron, and knew that there really would be a response to his acting up he would not have acted.  But Putin knew Obama was a fool and does not believe a price will be paid for his actions. (NO NOT WAR!!)


And now, even if Obama grow a brain, it would be very hard for Putin to back down and save face. 


Obama is so famous for saying "Let me be clear".  So endlessly famous.  Well the time to have been clear was before all this happened.  But, hey there were red lines, then those were crossed, redrawn, and crossed again, and denied the red line ever existed and then .......

I am not a fan of Palin, but even said several years ago "Putin would invade Ukraine".  So ... ah .... Palin is supposedly a moron, so ... ah ... what does that make Obama, who ridiculed Romney for ACCURATELY identifying Putin's intentions?  Naive, stupid, ignorant, and a fool.


What will Obama's excuse be, for that matter what excuse with the hacks on this board be, when Iran announces it has the bomb?  Probably no excuse, just "well, what do you what Obama to do? .... go to war"  And then they will be so pleased with their brilliance, but Iran will have the bomb.

The same people here who present this strawman argument, falsely claiming the learned people on the board are suggesting to go to war with Russia, are the same people who will be screaming that we can not go to war with a nuclear armed Iran!  And of course we could not go to war ONCE Obama gives Iran the bomb, just like we can not go to war with NK after Clinton gave them the bomb.


THE POINT IS if you are weak, you CREATE situations which you are THEN unable to respond to!


So the same Democrats who will give Iran the bomb through weakness (ie INADEQUATE PRESURE), will be the same Democrats saying we NOW CAN'T do anything about the nuclear problem of THEIR own making.  Of course they will say it is all Bush's fault or George Washington's fault, or so other such non sense.

People don't like admitting that Obama is a fool. Don't like it when I have said Obama, Kerry and Biden are morons for scolding Putin, saying "he should negotiate, saying he is so 19th century, for not believing their eyes that someone would invade another nation". And I have said "what part of Putin wishing to take and hold the Crimea do these fools not understand?


Well straight from Putin's mouth.

"In the case of Ukraine, our western partners crossed the line. Their behavior was rude, irresponsible, and unprofessional. They knew very well that millions of Russians live in both Crimea and the Ukraine."


Putin also described Ukraine’s capital, Kiev, as "the mother of all RUSSIAN CITIES.”


He compared the ANNEXATION of Crimea with the unification of Germany in 1990, which was supported by Russia. “I am sure that Europeans and Germans will understand … Russia's desire to unify the Russian people,” he said.


He calls the Ukrainian capital RUSSIAN

He admits to the ANNEXATION of Crimea


So I stand by Obama being an ignorant fool, and therefore dangerous for this country.  He emboldens all who might be aggressive anywhere in the world.  The world is laughing and acting as it pleases, because of this fool in the White House.  Perhaps some of you will see this when Obama's ineptness results in nuclear weapons in Iran, just like Clinton gave the bomb to NK.
