Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Putin mad that we busted his spies

What seems to be the problem, Pooty-Poot?  This?

Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin on Tuesday criticized U.S. law enforcement, even as his government acknowledged that its citizens were among the 11 people that U.S. authorities charged were part of a long-running spy operation.

So he’s mad that we caught his spies inside our country?  Hmmm.  Funny, that.

Putin plays game of “chicken” with Obama. Predictably, Obama surrenders.

I seem to recall the gaffetastic VP warning telling us roughly a year ago that B.O. would be tested by the world, the implication being that The One would be perceived as a weakling.  Biden assured us that the world would find out just how “steel”like B.O.’s resolve would be, and that he wouldn’t be pushed around.

If, by “steel”like, Biden meant “He would surrender quicker than a French soldier staring down the barrel of a water pistol”, then he was right.  Details:

President Barack Obama has decided to scrap plans for a U.S. missile defense shield in the Czech Republic and Poland that had deeply angered Russia, the Czech prime minister confirmed Thursday.

NATO’s new chief hailed the move as “a positive step” and a Russian analyst said the move will increase the chances that Russia will cooperate more closely with the United States in the dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.

Premier Jan Fischer told reporters that Obama phoned him overnight to say that “his government is pulling out of plans to build a missile defense radar on Czech territory.”

“The same happened with Poland. Poland was informed in the same way about this intention,” Fischer said.

Nile Gardiner sees this exactly right:

This is bad news for all who care about the US commitment to the transatlantic alliance and the defence of Europe as well as the United States. It represents the appalling appeasement of Russian aggression and a willingness to sacrifice American allies on the altar of political expediency. A deal with the Russians to cancel missile defence installations sends a clear message that even Washington can be intimidated by the Russian bear.

What signal does this send to Ukraine, Georgia and a host of other former Soviet satellites who look to America and NATO for protection from their powerful neighbour? The impending cancellation of Third Site is a shameful abandonment of America’s friends in eastern and central Europe, and a slap in the face for those who actually believed a key agreement with Washington was worth the paper it was written on.

Well played, Barry.  Pooty-Poot throws a hissy fit, and you steal the rattle away from one baby to give it to him.  Now that, my friends, is leadership.

Feeling safe and secure with that Hopenchange yet?

Possible Obama VP: Obama stopped the war in Georgia

Jawdropping assertion of the day, from Gov. Tim Kaine (D-VA), a man rumored to be on the Obamoron’s short list of VP’s:

It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in. And I’m very, very happy that the Senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.

Oh. My. God (insert leftist deity of preference here).

If I’m to understand Gov. Kaine correctly, Pooty-Poot and Medvedev decided to ignore President Bush, Juanny Mac, the Frogs, the Krauts, and likely the UN, but decided to act post haste when an obscure, inexperienced, wishy-washy, pansy #ss elitist junior Senator from IL requested (after botching his first two statements on the matter) the Russkies to back off?  Dude, that ranks right up there with the Goron claiming to have invented the Internet!

Besides, I don’t know how to break it to the Obamaphiles out there, but the fighting is still going on.  Ergo, the Obamessiah stopped nothing.  So, here’s my exit (albeit rhetorical) question: If the Obamaphiles were willing to credit him for stopping the conflict in Georgia, then since the conflict hasn’t stopped, are they willing to credit The One with “failed diplomacy”?

Obama neutral on Russian aggression, then condemns it

From Gateway Pundit:

Nowhere in Obama’s original statement did he exclusively condemn Russia but rather took the citizen of the world approach and left America’s ally Georgia to fend for itself.
Here is that statement:

“I strongly condemn the outbreak of violence in Georgia, and urge an immediate end to armed conflict. Now is the time for Georgia and Russia to show restraint, and to avoid an escalation to full scale war. Georgia’s territorial integrity must be respected. All sides should enter into direct talks on behalf of stability in Georgia, and the United States, the United Nations Security Council, and the international community should fully support a peaceful resolution to this crisis.”

…But, that was yesterday.
Now Politico is reporting that Barack Obama has released a fresh new statement and has decided to choose sides:

“I condemn Russia’s aggressive actions and reiterate my call for an immediate ceasefire… Russia must stop its bombing campaign, cease flights of Russian aircraft in Georgian airspace, and withdraw its ground forces from Georgia.”

Suddenly, Barack is sounding McCainish.

Drew thinks someone must have looked it up and told Obama which side we are on.

“Judgment” and “leadership” and whatnot.

Putin slams Hillary

I’m no fan of Pootie Poot, but this one is just funny.  I don’t care who you are.  From Politico:

When Hillary Clinton said, way back in New Hampshire, that Vladimir Putin “doesn’t have a soul,” I figured that would be the sort of thing the Russian wouldn’t be pleased about. But when I called the foreign ministry the next day for comment, it was Orthodox Christmas, and I let it slide.

He was asked about the remark at his press conference yesterday, however, and indeed wasn’t pleased.

The former KGB lieutenant colonel appeared to lash out at U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton — a leading Democratic candidate for president — when one reporter quoted her as saying that former KGB officers have no soul:

“At a minimum, a head of state should have a head,” Putin said. 

Ouch.  President Hildebeast, making friends and influencing people.

American moonbats don’t have monopoly on calling Bush a Nazi

Even the Russkies are getting in on the act of violating Godwin’s Law. From NewsMax:

Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a thinly veiled attack on the United States, comparing American foreign policy to the “Third Reich” in a speech on Wednesday.

Putin’s comments were the latest in a series of Russian criticisms of the U.S. on Iraq, missile defense and NATO expansion, as the Russian leader maintains that America is striving to single-handedly dominate world affairs, the International Herald Tribune reported.

Putin delivered the speech from a podium in front of Lenin’s Mausoleum on Red Square as he marked Victory Day, the 62nd anniversary of the defeat of Nazi Germany.

That’s rich, coming from the guy who is resorting to Soviet-style (and Nazi-like) freedom-squashing power grabs and intimidation tactics.
