<quoted text> However, I can spell and get my facts straight. Did you attend public school perchance? Also, Dmitry Medveded is the President and supreme commander-in-chief in Russia, not Putin (not terribly bright are you). With respect to Georgia -your dummy Obambi was the one who did not know that Russia has veto power at the UN - maybe his teleprompter malfunctioned.
Speaking of spelling, it's "Medvedev", not 'Medveded'!!! Engage your brain and learn to spell before criticizing others!!!

Everyone but retarded folks like you knows that Putin is the real power behind the Kremlin, not your 'Medveded'(chuckle).

Obama was not President when Russia invaed Georgia. You failed to tell me how 'tough guy' Bush responded to this provocation.

All you do is change the subject. Your point was how others 'respected' Bush for his 'toughness'. Please provide an example. The Chinese, Koreans, Iranians, and Russians all challenged him, and he did squat.

What did Bush do at Yale???(He was a cheerleader). Apparently you think cheerleaders are tough guys. I think they're far from that.

All he could do is invade third world nations. And even then he could not come up with a winning strategy.

Your argument is bogus.

My misspelling of Medvedev represents a keystroke (v/d) error similar to your typographical errors with 'takcle''dreanged' and 'apoparently'. I cannot fault a keystroke error on your part but to misspell the same word three times 'snoballs'- it is no longer a keystroke error. Secondly, I am Russian - with family still in Russia. Within the last nine months Medvedev has started to wrestle power away from Putin, so please do not get your facts only from the American news media. Thirdly, there is not anything Bush or Obambi can do about Russia - eventually we (Russia) will beat you (America) down. However, I hope that Russia does institute some democratic reforms first. With respect to North Korea, they would not have launched a missile over Japan if GWB had been president. They were still afraid of a strike by the US. If they had fired it, the Navy would have shot it down as it left North Korean airspace rather than letting them gain all the data from the failed launch to use next time. As to which countries were afraid of GWB, Pakistan and Libya both publicly acknowledged that the "you are either with us or against us' speech played a role in their decision to help the US and renounce terrorism. As to Iran, I believe GWB, as well as Israel, was just waiting for Iran to get a little further along with their nuclear program before launching a military strike. As to Bush's college days, Obambi was smoking crack and having drunken sex with men in college - there are affidavits swearing as to this behavior. Talk about changing the subject - Bush's college days? Really?

Wow. "you sound like a real lunatic. The 'snoballs' was apurposeful misspelling, perhaps escaping your Russina sensibiities! LOL

Seriously, the Russians taking over anything is a laugh. They are nothing but an oil and gas producer. When commodities collapsed, so did th eRussian economy. They're in worse shape than we are!! Russia had better keep it's eyes to the east, where China is a greater threat than anyone else.

The rest of what you say is a madman's rantings.

I have been following this amusing discussion, politics aside, Medveded and dearaged are typing mistakes but 'snoballs' being a "purposeful mistake" - I am not buying it. No lies or all lies?

Woodbury, Vermont! I knew you played for the other team. By the way Mr. Kotter, I like the all lies name better. As for China, the enemy of my enemy is my ally. Every blow China strikes against the US is a victory for Russia. Obama is decadent, naive, and weak - a complete push-over. He makes me laugh.
