Ukrainian uprising: Putin's policies, Obama's response

President Obama said late Wednesday he hoped the just-announced Ukraine truce would "provide space for the sides to resolve their disagreements peacefully."

http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/the-five/articl...

Putin's response?.........it will suffice to say the truce is already over.........

Thursday's violence broke out just hours after the government announced a truce in the fighting,

Putin continues to outplay Obama at every turn.........sad but true.

Kremlin Analysts Push For Ukraine Annexation
Russian experts have started using loaded WWII-era language to talk about a solution to the ‘Ukrainian Question’ and to advocate controlling parts of the country in a version of USSR 2.0.As Ukraine’s protests have spiraled into violence over the past month, forcing the prime minister to resign and destabilizing the iron grip of President Viktor Yanukovych, one looming question has hung over the events of the EuroMaidan: What will Putin do?

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/02...

and the answer is?????Putin will do what is good for HIS Country. There is nobody in this world tough/smart enough to stop him.

Yeah, lots of Tbagger republicans love Putin. They love the bare chested photos of Putin, and Putin's arrogant, anti-democratic, dictatorial ways.

They love dictators-- if it's THEIR dictators. They love that Putin arrests homosexuals. They don't mind that he rigs elections, gives special favors to oligarchs who support him, and brutalizes his opponents.

Righties love that Putin has weakened and eliminated any other political parties. They love his macho style, because 'he gets things done'.

Just like in our country, these righties don't care about the huge income disparity in Russia. And they don't care that he's a dictator.

"Vladimir Putin is living the wet dream people like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul fantasize about.

The kid gloves have come off and these Republicans who cheer for Putin while condemning Obama have shown themselves not only to be hypocrites but to be champions of totalitarian ideology.

Just as they love big government when it’s their big government, and free speech when it’s their free speech, they have shown that they love totalitarianism when they’re the demagogues in charge, and the bully’s bully, Vladimir Putin, is their kind of guy."

Really, if you don't like it here move to Russia. Russia has gone from a horrible communist state to becoming a horrible 'capitalist' state-- run by a coalition of the super-rich and the Putin government.

It's the wet dream of the Ted Cruz's and Rand Paul's of our country. It's everything you righties want here.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10/09/russ...

"A staggering 35 percent of household wealth in Russia is owned by just 110 people, the highest level of inequality in the world barring a few small Caribbean islands, a report by a major investment bank says.

By contrast, billionaires worldwide account for just 1-2 percent of total wealth, Credit Suisse said in its report published Wednesday. Russia has one billionaire for every $11 billion in wealth while in the rest of the world there is one for every $170 billion.

The fall of Communism saw Russia's most prized assets sold off to a small circle of businessmen later known as oligarchs. President Vladimir Putin allowed them to keep their wealth in exchange for their political loyalty."

Personally, I don't likethe man(Putin).........however, he is a winner (of sorts) and btw, we do understand that you have a sexual attraction toward that "bare chested" person.(I always knew that you were gay)
But I digress.
He is/has been totally disrespectful to OUR potus, and our potus has basically rolled over and peed all over himself in response.
Not a good situation.

Putin Is Winning In Ukraine

As Kiev burns, Western policymakers are eating ashes. Our efforts to help Ukraine towards Europe, democracy and the rule of the law have failed spectacularly. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin is celebrating not just sporting triumph in Sochi, but geopolitical victory in the affairs of his most important neighbor.....more

Putin is a lot smarter then Obama but why shouldn't he be. He has a background in Military Intelligence while Obama was a door to door salesman of lawsuits and giveaway money! Obama has been out of his element the whole time that he has been in office but the libs can't recognize it because they are too afraid of being labeled as racist. It must be sad to be a lib and have to argue that Obama is a good leader all of the time while he flails away in office doing obviously stupid things.

What is even sadder than being a " lib" is to be an ignorant conservative who believes that he knows more then the entire scientific community, has a monopoly on the truth, and who thinks he understands the workings of international intrigue.

Obama is a genius, just look at his record of accomplishments,

Obamacare is failing

The middle east is completely destabilized thanks to his lack of foreign policy

Welfare cost is up because of our poor economy and the disincentives to work that are built into large government giveaway programs

US government debt is growing at its fastest rate ever

Obama's rule by executive order is seriously challenging the balance of power that serves to protect us as citizens from a tyrannical government

Executive Branch agencies such as the IRS, EPA and DOJ are out of control trying to bully citizens that dare to criticize this government or it's policies.

The NSA is listening in to our private conversations and reading or emails.

I could go on and on. Bottom line is... we are losing the freedoms that this country was founded on. We are trading our system of individual freedom for the socialist promise that has failed throughout history because the best that man can offer is stifled in favor of corrupt and mediocre results that are forced upon the populace by weak minded, self important government bureaucrats!

No, it's working. Millions are signing up, including those who couldn't get insurance before. Any huge new law needs tweeks-- but the Tbaggers won't make them.
Krankenstein wrote:

NO president can control the world, especially in the middle east. He's making smart decisions, and uses diplomacy-- especially when compared to the likes of John McCain, who just wanted to "Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran".

And how well did Bush stabilize the middle east with his invasion of Iraq?
Krankenstein wrote:

Welfare costs and our poor economy were caused by Bush's Wall Street meltdown, by his tax cuts, and by financial de-regulation. This mess was left for Obama, who was immediately faced with job losses of 700,000 a month. We've had many months of job growth since then, with Obama.
Krankenstein wrote:
US government debt is growing at its fastest rate ever
Our deficits under President Obama have been decreasing. The huge national debt is 90% a left-over from the huge debt buildups promoted by Reagan and Bush.

The way to improve our economy AND start paying down the debt is with JOBS. Obama's infrastructure jobs bill would have been a good start to providing millions of jobs, but the Tbaggers wouldn't pass it.
Krankenstein wrote:

Obama has issued fewer executive orders than most presidents. Bush's executive orders were often of the tyrannical type-- allowing torture, etc.

We may lose our freedom of democracy because of republican voter suppression, and because of the political/ corporate cartel that's taking away the rights of the 99%. We're becoming a country by the rich and for the rich-- and republicans call this freedom.

Putin Outsmarts Obama, Again, with Letter to US Public
By Mendeleyeev
Mr. Putin has just made a brilliant move by asking the New York Times to publish an open letter to the American people. It is brilliant in that he has carefully but effectively done an “end around” the Obama administration and enhanced his image as a world leader while stepping up to a podium uninvited, yet accepted without the careful media control so synonymous with this administration.

Here is his open letter to the American people:

How Putin Keeps Outsmarting the West

The violence in Ukraine has subsided somewhat as both sides react to the new deal to end the violence. It’s still not at all clear whether the agreement will hold or even what it will mean if it does, but in the meantime, it’s time to take a step back for a wider look at the strategic blunders by western powers that got the country into this mess in the first place. WRM does just that in a new piece at the WSJ,(written before the deal was announced), which examines how the West’s repeated attempts to ignore geopolitics allowed Putin to gain the upper hand:

breaking news:
Ukrainian President Defiant As Archrival Freed From Prison

The apparent toppling of the pro-Russian looks likely to pull Ukraine away from Moscow’s orbit and closer to Europe.

It is also a stark reversal for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s dream of recreating as much as possible of the Soviet Union in a new Eurasian Union, in which Moscow had counted on Yanukovich to deliver Ukraine as a central member.

The Ukraine people have stepped up to the plate, but they areno match for Putin's brand of pressure. Someone needs to be the voice of freedom and independence from tyrany........where is nobama?
Is he scared?
Opportunity presents itself.......
Let's hope his "anus touch" doesn't screw it up.
