You say it better than I. Everyone knows Obama doesn't back up his word and the media lets him off the hook as well as most liberals saying well he meant this. And I thought liberals thought that Obama was so bright and such a good communicator and yet he needs a speechwriter for a press conference. Every press conference to date he's given a speech rather than answer questions, so don't tell me he wasn't prepared.<quoted text>
Doesn't matter, Barry's keepers should never've let him tell the Ukranians that there "would
be consequences". The only so-called consequences available to Obama are sanctions, and those will do little to nothing to change the crisis in Kiev. Putin, who has a strong dislike for the US, will make sure of that.
Yer missing the big picture here, Wilfred. Reagan's persona during his election and relection campaigns, AND his persona DURING his 8 year Presidency was one of NO NONSENSE.
The US knew it, and most (or all) foreign powers knew it.
Yes he had a couple of black marks with Iran-Contra, etc., but the bad guys knew better than to rile Ronny (and Nancy).
Other than carrying on Bush foreign policy, Obama's a milquetoast just like his base wants
him, and is easily being pushed around by leaders of countries that wouldn't even consider
it with previous US Presidents.
Somehow people have fooled themselves into thinking we have a higher standing in the world with Obama. That's not true, either economically or as a world leader. Nobody believes Obama, heck Americans don't believe Obama.
