Putin is stuck in the Cold War era and the president should have backed out of their scheduled meeting.

Why do you feel the need to be anti-American, side with Putin against our President and country? Is your hate really that irrational? What could Obama do in order for Putin to not see him as you say he does? I remember Bush saying he could see into Putin soul and Putin laughed in his face, which is just plain crazy.
I will never understand why people need to look for anything to attack the President of the United States. You are a citizen of the country, right?

Snowden is a hero who exposed the obama administration's spying on american citizens! Even worse they gave dea thugs access to the nsa database!

Here's the truth:

Snowden was flying from Hong Kong to Cuba, through
the Russian airport. He was laid over for 6 hours.
In the meantime, Cuba was trying to decide if they would renig on their acceptance of him or not. ALSO in the meantime, the O administration started bad mouthing Russia.

Russia was ticked. Russia did not appreciate those arrogant O mouths telling Russia (who wasn't really involved with the whole thing) that they were playing with fire and that there would be severe consequences. Bully bully bully

Well, Cuba turned Snowden's travel there down.
THEN, Russia was stuck. On the one hand, they had this pushy-face O administration and on the other hand they had this really fearful-for-his-very-life guy.

Russia did the right thing...let the guy save his very life for one year yet...but then he would have to do something other than stay in Russia.

I think Putin did the right thing.

And the USA, dare not fire a drone on this American Citizen 'cause he did nothing but tell the truth about USA spying on its own citizens.

Thank YOU Snowden! Me and 45% of the rest of the USA population agree...you were a whistle-blower
and not a leaker.

What is really troublesome is that there are distant spying facilities in the United States, not under gov control, that are doing their own thing against US citizens.
Snowden is perfect proof that if he can do it, so
can a REAL terrorist!
The NSA had better clean up their act.

This should come as no surprise. We have seen Obama fail to negotiate with our own Congress for years. Obama simply doens't have the skill set to function like an American President. He has been Bully in Chief at home and won't face a Bigger Bully abroad no matter how important the issues at hand.

American WILL survive the inept President. The majority of our Allies are still on our side. They know we made a huge mistake in putting our Country in the hands of the Hard Left.

All is NOT lost. We can correct our mistake by denying Pelosi/Reid as many seats in Congress as possible in '14.
It may be our ONLY hope.

Here's an idea.

Instead of negotiating with Putin...Obama should do a Tour Arouond Russia preaching to Russians that Russia is an Awful Country because they refuse to goose step to Obama agenda of the moment like he does most every week in America??? American people appear to LOVE to be derated by Obama why not the Russians. Obama can show Putin a thing or two about being a BULLY.

Yeah........that's the ticket!!!

I'm telling you, though, the '14 election is already in trouble. The Dems are out to purchase votes with immigration reform which is blanket amnesty. The voting block of the Hispanics has thrown off their conservative values and only vote for one, selfish issue. They see this issue best supplied by the Dems, who are now controlled by the Chicago style, harass/bully, federalists.

Most of the conservatives (not on either coast) have no say in their government composition anymore. The electoral college is now mostly owned by minority vote from TX, CA, and (I think)New Mexico. This is where the population has changed from former white conservative majority, to Hispanic majority that votes for the one self issue.

The electoral college won't play in '14, but the '16 race is already sewed up behind Hillary whose been running around the world for corporate America opening up markets for them and collecting campaign money for herself.

Conservative values, constitutional values, states' rights....are all a thing of the past because of our porous borders.

The American Press Corp have lost their minds.

Their Headlines....."Obama snubs Putin"

If a child refuses to go to School because of a Bully is the Child Snubbing the School?

"Obama cowers B4 Putin" would be a far more accurate Headline.

You are 100% correct. Americans didn't MAN UP to stop the madness. The Obama people have WON. America is Toast. Now we must face the dismal reality that our own kids won't stand a chance in their OWN Country.

When world leaders get together for conferences like this they tend to compartmentalize these spy type issues because they do not want something like this interfere with lager issues of importance.

Putin forgot that Obama is a narcissist to such an extent that he would throw a tantrum when he did not get his way on the snowball spy boy.

Of course since Obama feels Putin "dissed" him and now he has "dissed" Putin back, the Russian will have to come up with something to throw back in Obama's face or he will lose face. Obama belongs on a playground arguing with the other little kids, did to, did not, did to, did not. Not on the world stage .

Is'nt this the same person who said he would meet with Iranian President Mahmoud AhIamANutJob to discuss issues during his campaign.

What an assinine comment??? You really dont' want our President to handle one of the most important jobs of an American President???

Hurling insults at our own Congress from afar may have gotten him re-elected here. But, hurling insults at another World Leader rather than standing up for America may not end so well.

The fact that Putin and Obama disagree on so much makes the Summit MORE important.

Listen to you.

Where was this attitude when Hitler was walking all over your country?

You better hope we get America straightened out, one of these days countries like yours are going to need liberating AGAIN.

If America dies, so do all the dependent countries that have been suckling at our teats for the last 60 years.

Oh you poor fool. A President, any Presidents failures impact YOU and YOUR family too.

Presidents having Summits with other World Leaders is their JOB. Particularly if there are problems between the Countries.

Flying around every week and dividing Americans be any means necessary may be all you expect from a President but you must MAN UP and Aim Higher. Our Countrys future depends on it.

yes, you are correct. But so is he. It does not matter to most of the retards here whether Obama moves left or right; their only real purpose here is to yell about what an aweful president he is regardless of whether they agree or not. Its pretty obvious but this is american and they are free to be retarded.
