America is exceptional, but our leaders are not. We have given power to the lowest information people in our history. Democrats pretend they are brilliant, but if they were we wouldn't be thanking Vladimir Putin for saving Obama's bacon after he made such a foolish mistake as to threaten Assad with a red line, Then back away as soon as Putin said he could fix the problem without firing a shot, or a drone, or whatever. Obama looks like a silly man child, and he made Putin look like the grown up.

What word, commie, dipwad, turkey?

Don't tell me more conspiracies are starting to bounce around between your ears now. You think the forum's inundated with Russian hasbarats, is that it?

I'll bet you keep the lights on at night too. Keeps the scary shadows at bay.

If you don't mind, I'll part company now. Breaking Bad's on and I'd much rather watch Walt White chasing his buried cash than listen to your turkey gobble.

Where is Obama? I know where uncle Joe is, and Miss Hillary, Sen Reid, but Obama is no where to be seen. I would hide too if I had shamed my position to a Russian.

Well, on Friday he met with the Kuwait amir, and some labor leaders.

why is it you don't know this? why are you not aware of what goes on in your own world, let alone your own nation?

Must not have been too important. He is all over the T V most days, and suddenly he is off crying in his beer or something. Why weren't there more pictures? A big campaign speech that he has become so famous for? I think you made that up. I'll google his last couple days.

Sorry. Putin had Obama for lunch, and took home doggie bags. What if the Russians knew something about information that is sealed over here, but likely public knowledge in Russia. Obama so quickly changed his mind about what he was going to do in Syria. He even caught Hanoi John off guard. We will never know the truth until president Obama is out of office.

Putin is a fat KGB toad stuffing his pockets with oil money; a modern day czar, suppressing all opposition....Russia is still too backward for democracy...poorly dressed and ill-humored lot. Our gift to you will be fresh Qaeda recruits in Syria to challenge your hegemony over Chechnya and Dagistan. Blood on Russia's hands for all the weapons supplied for Assad to use in the massacre of his own people. Now Russia pays. Putin may laugh today, Obama may look weak, but Putin and the Russians will be torn apart when the vengeful hordes come roaring across the Caucasus.

Obama does not look weak. I wonder what anyone else would have done in the same situation. He is choosing the least damaging of a number of terrible choices. What's really disgusting is that, even against a common enemy, there are those a'holes who want to make this a partisan issue.

There is some truth in what you say about Russia. Visit the bathroom in the Moscow airport, where there are no toilet seats, and everyone has to share from a single roll of toilet paper. And from close up, you would think the natives had never heard of deodorant.
St. Petersburg is a very attractive city. But even there it seems the government spends more money on sprucing up their cathedrals than on caring for the basic needs of their citizens.

Did you not make it through school that you need pictures to tell you the story?? Throw your prejudice and bigotry back in the closet and maybe you will understand reality.

The reality is Vladimir Putin just ate Oabma's lunch, and took home doggie bags. The whole world is laughing, because Kerry is trying to scare Bashar Assad with threatening "Unbelievably small" attacks, and sitting down with Sergey Lavrov who told Hanoi John in a nice diplomatic way to shut the hell up. Of course you are not aware of any of this. You watch fantasy world on CNN, and MSNBC

Anyone who thinks Obama is dumb probably hasn't yet learned to walk upright.
Anyone who underestimates anything about this President is probably better off being ignorant. He really is a class act and doesn't seem fazed by anything. Except maybe mass shootings and murders in public places in his country.
