I'm extremely skeptical of this growing "bromance" between him and Obama.

Of course he's "extremely skeptical"; he's pissed we might not be starting World War III after all.

Uh oh, McCain's plans are foiled by Obama once again!

We have been down this road before with Saddam, UN Resolutions/sanctions and the occasional air strikes. Did it work then? NO Saddam had to be removed by force. Which removing Assad wasn't part of Obama's plan. Just like removing Saddam wasn't part of the plan either. Will this work now, we don't know but history in that region is a good indicator it won't. It WILL have to be backed up with force eventually. WHO IS GOING TO DO IT?? Obama can't get a coalition of two for this now. Does he think its popularity is grow with time? Will AQ get its hand on one of those weapons or has that already happened? So thank you Obama, you have just gave the US another Iraq and more problems in years to come. Kids were sent to Desert Storm, they sent their kids to OIF, now they will send their kids to Syria in the next decade.

How long ago was it that these neo-cons marched the future 5,000 dead U.S. military off to war with glee?

Nice to see how easily Obama was played by Putin. Without the slavish U.S. media to protect him, Obama shows his lack of leadership on the world stage. No foreign leader respects Obama.

Nice spin, however only the 43% that don't pay taxes will be impressed, that is if the White House gives them free phone upgrades.

Ah, the phony Crapola again. Whoever you really are, you are a partisan, mindless jackass. Putin's offer makes Obama look brilliant. Without Obama's hard line threats, a deal between Putin and Syria would never have come about.

I'm so sick of morons like you making this a partisan issue. If there was ever a time for Americans to unite against a common enemy, it is now.

Will the REAL "conservative crapola" stand up and register, so that slimeballs couldn't pretend to be you?
