Bring Obama Back!

#2 Mar 4, 2014
These are complicated times with complicated issues, that is why the American people elected a brilliant man to be President. We saw what buffoonery-stupidity got us when George W Bush damn-near destroyed this great nation. Obama has made the correct decision every time he was confronted with a crisis or a military operationů this time will be no different; and the American people will keep the Senate in Democratic control this November.

I'm just happy to witness history with this great President leading this nation forward.

Here is a novel idea.

No Foreign Entanglements.

I know right, such a radical idea.

Let's see here, Russia is moving troops into Crimea and Ukraine. Why? Could have nothing to do with the fact that the United States Department paid $5B to Ukrainian opposition to over throw the government could it?

And it is not like Russia has any assets in that region at all right (natural gas pipelines and Black Sea military bases)? Nor is 50%+ of the population actually Russian? Also could not be the fact that Ukraine borders Russia could it?

See what happens when one starts screwing around with Geo-Political Politics of a region they have no business being involved in......

"See what happens Larry? Do you see what happens?"---Big Lebowski

And these sociopaths and psychopaths in Washington are going to risk a hot and re-establishment of a cold war for what? A bunch of F'ing idiots.

Clearly you have no idea what you are talking about.

Geo-Political planning and excution are part of the equalation that keeps our nation safe by keeping other world nations balance of power in check. The west won the game and putin isn't happy about losing.

What I surprise is that you actually believe that 5 billion was what won the game for the west when the Russians were offering 25 billion and was spending a good deal more than 5 billion to keep Ukraine in their sphere of influance.

Now why on earth would the Ukrainains pass up a more sizable amount of cash from the Russians to get a much lower amount of aid from the west? sounds like they don't want what the Russians were selling.

The American Flag at Republican National Headquarters
has been replaced by the flag of Russia.

Ronald Reagan's portrait has been taken down and Vladimir
Putin's mug now hangs there instead.

I knew it would come to this sooner of later.

If knee-jerking Republican Obama-haters would just
pipe down for a few minutes, there could be a rational
discussion on the subject of Ukraine. But no, they've chosen
Russia over America and that's so extreme it boggles
the mind. What next, a cohort of volunteers to raise
millions of dollars for Putin? It reminds one of the pro-Nazi
rallies in the US before WWII.

No, Your President, with the yellow streak down his back, cancelled the Missile Defense Shield for Poland right after he was elected. He is a weak-kneed example of Affirmative Action.

Bush hid under the bed in Aug 08 when Putin struck in Georgia and did nothing not even a phone call to Putin
