He's doing just what he needs to do to keep us out of it. Unlike George W who got us involved in TWO unnecessary wars, I appreciate him being cautious! If teabaggers like Palin, McCain and others prefer Putin over Obama, it may be time for them to pack their bags!

Yay! You started a new thread, Harley. Thanks. I think Obama is about as much a leader as Pee Wee Herman is a bad ass, but that's of little consequence. The bottom line is what does the Ukraine have that both countries want? Is it coal reserves, natural gas, or just a matter of saving face?
Seriously, if America decided to make Puerto Rico a new state, would it be any of Russia's or the UN's business? It is very clear that the Ukraine can't settle their own problems, and foreign influence sure isn't helping. Some say Obama is doing all he can to keep us out of this. If so, why is he pushing sanctions on Russia? Let Russia have them if they can afford it! I smell a hint of Vietnam in this war by proxy bullshit.

I think he's done a wonderful job. You don't hear that much around these parts. But look what they've elected? Tony Shipleys and Ron Ramsey's and now the state is #1 in pain pills,#1 in meth and # 1 in bankruptcy and #3 in poverty so the dipshit below comparing Obama to pe wee Herman . Needs his head examined first. The Tennessee voter has for to be the stupidest people in the whole world. Mean ole black man not gonna tell is what to do.

Yeah, they'd rather come home and get hit between the eyes with a ballbat because these KOCHSUCKERS that they continue to suck, are lobbied by 100 lobbyists using $15.2 million yearly. When the president came to tennessee , Ron Ramsey was like "I hope he took notice". Notice of what. This place is a shithole. And it's caused by dipshits like this dude"stay out of it"

Now if he doesn't like that, I'll be happy to explain it to him in person, let's send his wife over there to get her head blown off. Be one less teabagger to have to bury over herel they just toss them on the sand over there. Have a nice day, and be sure to remind a teabagger that we have the White House for 20 years and that only the strong survive

I believe it is a good strategy to place sanctions on individual influential Russians. That hurts the power elite of Russia that have the ear of Putin. Thank goodness John McCain lost or we would probably be in WWIII! He would have gone into Libya,Syria, and now Russia. Right wingers go from calling the President a dictator who is trying to control everything in our nation, to calling him a weak leader. Their idiocy is abundantly evident whenever they speak. Too bad this region does not recognize. That when they vote for Roe, Corker, Alexander, Haslam, Ramsey, and those of their ilk they are voting against their own interests. It is down right stupid!

I dont see any reason why we should get tangled into an Eastern Europe war, just because of the stupidity and arrogance of the Obama administration. Why should we fight a war with Russia in order to prop up a government that was the result of a coup, and had overthrown thier elected leader?

Are we to back every hunta, or coup around the world?

Obama and company were quick to seize the headlines and support the Ukrainian coup, only to realize too late, that this would lead to conflicting interest with Russia. Oops!

Dont get me wrong, I dont like Putin because he was KGB and they were thugs back in the old days. But he has proven himself competent, and much smarter than our leaders by far.

John McCain and Harry Reid and the others in Congress that got sanctioned by Putin are making a joke out of it. So did Putins crowd that got sanctioned by Obama.

In other words, the sanctions were a joke, everybody had a good laugh, and nothing of any substance was done about Ukraine. Obama fumbled again, and the press laughs the whole thing off, and lets move on to something new while Obama goes golfing.

So much for the sanctions. Obama just did it to "look Presidential".His advisers told him to do that. It was never a serious policy, nor was it ever intended to accomplish anything except as a media stunt..

The only real reason why Vladimir Putin slapped them on some of our leaders, was to show what a joke the sanctions really are.

So, every time McCain or his pals make a joke about the sanctions from Putin, they are making fun of Obamas sanctions too.

They just dont have sense enough to figure that out yet.

As for Ukraine, Putin played Obama like a fiddle. He ran circles around Obama, and made Obama to look weak and silly, which he is.

And worse, there are loose cannons, such as Joe Biden, who seem intent on bumbling us into a war an inch at a time, with poorly thought out words and promises of US backing, when even Obama didnt say it.

We might see more street violence in Ukraine, which will lead to more Russian invasion. The arrogance of the Obama administration would require them to do something, for appearances sake.

Then we might see Joe Biden promise to send in American weapons first, then American troops. Obama would have to cover for Bidens run away mouth, and then we would be in it up to our eyeballs.

That is how really stupid rulers get dragged into wars that their people dont want. And Im afraid that is exactly what is going to happen, unless another fiasco comes upon the Obama administration, and our attention gets diverted to something else.

But with Obama, the disasters and the scandals and the uproars over tyrannical policies, take overs, unconstitutional power grabs, etc etc etc, they are never very far away.

Its been one disaster after another for America since he has been in.

Leftist trolls who can only reply with insults and one liners are, well, stupid amd not worth listening to.

Anyhoo, why is the American (government controlled) news media telling the real story hear?

The Ukrainian government that Obama is backing (with weak, meaningless sanctions) was a government that was never elected. It is a collection of street gangs and political groups that overthrew thier elected leader and they took over thier government buildings by force.

Some of these groups include the Ukraine Nazi Party.(Yes, its true).

These guys were not elected by any election. They took over Ukrsaine by force through a violent coup.

So, why exactly are we supporting them? Because they are friendly to Western business interest perhaps? Is it possible that our interest isnt about democracy (there hasnt been any in Ukraine). Maybe its about our wealth big shots making money there?

Obama, is he really standing up for "freedom", when there hasnt been any Ukraine elections to validate the Ukraine government that Obama is supporting, although poorly and incompetently?

I can't believe it hell has frozen over. I actually agree with you 100 percent. We are backing the Nazis who overthrew an American styled democracy. How could the world come to this? The Russians are doing exactly what the American people would demand if our neighbor's government were overthrown by Nazis. I hope Putin crushes these rogue leaders.
