PUTIN PUSHES BACK AS OBAMA EDGES TOWARD SYRIA STRIKE - As America edges closer to a retaliatory strike against Syrian government forces in the wake of a deadly chemical attack, Russia is digging in against international intervention. Russian President Vladimir Putin has been increasingly dismissive of President Obama’s policy demands -- offering asylum to NSA leaker Edward Snowden and brushing off Obama’s insistence that gay athletes be included in the 2014 Winter Olympics set for Sochi, Russia. Putin’s government agrees that chemical weapons were used in Syria, but not with the U.S. assessment that they were deployed by government forces rather than Islamist rebels. News that the Obama administration scrapped plans to meet with Russian diplomats on Syria options reaffirms the new chill in the already icy U.S.-Russia relationship.
The Russians know Obama is just a puppet figure and doesn't have any authority. They also know he won't know anything about what's going on in Syria.
There's no reason to meet with anyone like that.

Look for Putin to pull Obama's pants down and spank him again....

When Rep. Louie Gohmert floats conspiracy theories, Americans across the political spectrum tend to roll their eyes and ignore him. But one of his more feverish conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama’s ostensible ties to the Muslim Brotherhood could be fueling dangerous anti-American sentiments in Egypt and potentially complicating U.S. foreign policy in the region, experts say.
For months, the five-term Republican congressman from Texas has been claiming that the Obama administration has been infiltrated by members of the Muslim Brotherhood who are steering U.S. foreign policy and emboldening terrorists.
“This administration has so many Muslim Brotherhood members that have influence that they just are making wrong decisions for America,” Gohmert told the conspiracy-friendly World Net Daily radio back in April, in just one example of such claims.
Gohmert’s remarks echo conspiracy theories put forth by conservative writer and advocate Frank Gaffney, who published a book last year titled The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration. Gohmert appeared on Gaffney’s radio show earlier this year touting the Brotherhood’s influence on Obama.
At home, where the political class takes Gohmert with a grain of salt, the claim has been confined to the fever swamps. Gaffney’s theories were so fringe as to get him banned from the high-profile conservative conference CPAC last year.
But in Egypt, where the democratically elected Muslim Brotherhood government was recently ousted by the country’s military after the people turned against it, it’s a different story. Anti-American conspiracy theories are rampant there, for a variety of reasons related and unrelated to U.S. foreign policy, and hearing it from a United States congressman lends credibility to the theory that the U.S. is teaming up with the Muslim Brotherhood — and even Al-Qaeda — to destroy Egypt.
“I guarantee you nobody in Egypt really knows who Louie Gohmert is or what he’s about. So they could very well point to this and say ‘Look! He’s a member of Congress. This must be serious. There must be something to it,’” said Steven A. Cook, senior fellow for Middle Eastern Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations.“It doesn’t help in a political environment where everyone is already angry at us to be fueling conspiracy theories against us. In that way it enables an overall level of hostility toward the U.S.”
Shadi Hamid, a Middle East expert at the Brookings Institution, conceded that he hadn’t even heard of Gohmert until TPM reached out to him.“As for the role it plays,” Hamid said,“look, this does provide real ammunition to the conspiracy theorists when you have American sources seemingly verifying what they are saying.”
“It lends these bizarre theories a new code of legitimacy and amplifies them,” he said.“When Egyptians see this, they don’t realize that just because a U.S. congressman is saying this that it can be wrong or that he can be lying publicly.”

All you have to do is hang out at the front door to the White House and you'll see the Muslim Brotherhood go through those doors every day, dupe.
Now, please tell us how the Muslim Brotherhood can be in the White House every day and not have business with the president.

republicans could care less one way or the other about attacking Syria. all they care about is attacking Obama.
In your mind, of course.

Tell us why we should support Obama and help Al Qaeda acquire chemical weapons.
Obama isn't helping the rebels in Syria. He's helping the Al Qaeda terrorist insurgent invaders who want to take over the government.

Aside from ready to use Chem weapons the US furnished Saddam with components and chemical how to information. I was the least we could do__Saddam was our ally at the time.
Were you one of Carol's history students?
They were furnished courtesy of countries throughout the civilized world.

You did get something right though. Saddam WAS considered an ally against Iran in countries throughout the civilized world - including ours.

He became a traitor and his evil side revealed.

Obama gave weapons and F-16 fighter jets to the Muslim Brotherhood. Was that okay with you?

I think it was a mule, it could have been a jackass, dunno because he spoke Spanish.
Hey dumbass, a mule is a person who carries drugs, weapons, or even other people across the border into America. The possibility that a mule or several could cross the border carrying some unknown infectious disease is not out of the question either.

Obama hated the United States his entire life. Any enemy of the United States is a friend to Obama.
Stating the fact that Putin makes a fool out of Obama every time they cross paths isn't supporting Putin. It's just stating facts. In truth, I don't like being embarrassed by a president that is an obviously ignorant buffoon and fraud. The world knows it. The world is laughing at us, and world leaders like Putin are just taking advantage of the American president being an ignorant buffoon.

Speaking of support, can you tell me who helped Obama back up after he bent all the way over for the Russians, while grabbing his ankles and purring he was flexible the whole time?

Some day they'll make a movie about it, and I hope it is more truthful than the typical lefty Hollywood movie, but I predict they'll make Obama look tough as he's in that Downward Dog position and promising sweet nothings after the election.

As Germany’s elections approach, one politician has emerged to give Chancellor Angela Merkel a run for her money in the polls.

Well, sort of.

In a theoretical German election, President Obama, it appears, handily would defeat Mrs. Merkel.

“If Obama could run for election in Germany, he would become our next chancellor,” said Andreas Sperling, CEO of YouGov Germany, an online pollster.

After revelations that the National Security Agency was spying on foreigners here, YouGov conducted a poll that found Mr. Obama still remains the most popular politician in Germany. People here may be upset about the spying allegations — but, apparently, not enough to change their minds.

Three out of four Germans said Mr. Obama gives the United States a good image internationally, according to the poll, while 65 percent said they would vote for him if they could.
