Putin Punks Obama
Mista Obama, u been played.
Last week, despite much Russian ass-kissing by Barack Obama, Russia’s chief diplomat spurned not only the notion of actual sanctions against the incipient nuclear weapons program being developed by Iran, with much Russian assistance, but even the threat of such sanctions. Soon after that, Putin himself began issuing ominous warnings about leaving Iran alone.
It was clear: Obama had been punk’d.
It was not a good week for the American President. First he was humilated when he sought to win the Olympic Games for his home city of Chicago, then when he won a Nobel Prize that nobody on the face of the Earth believes he deserves, and then finally when Russia spit in his eye after he unilaterally cancelled the ballistic missile system for Eastern Europe as part of his now infamous effort to “reset” relations with the neo-Soviet dictatorship.
But Russia’s dictator is doing remarkably well with such a sucker for an adversary. His lapdogs are crowing loudly about the wonderful new environment in which Russia gets much and gives nothing. They’re happy to let Obama collect his peace prizes as long as he sells the European allies down the river and leaves Russia free to keep on pummeling its own domestic civil society, including most especially lynching two or three blacks each and ever week of the year.
We gave this man a chance, and he’s returned the favor by proving that our worst suspicions about him were not nearly bad enough. He is this century’s Chamberlain, allowing the consolidation of a malignant totalitarian regime out of ignorance and cowardice. He is allowing a unholy alliance to develop between a neo-Soviet secret police state and a religious freakshow committed to the destruction of Israel and America.
It is time the Republican party, and the conservative Democrats who support them, stood up to this man and demanded he reverse this treacherous course before it is too late.
