Our lovable but gullible galoot sat down yesterday with Dmitry Medvedev, the President of Russia..or is he the Prime Minister of Russia..or is Putin the President or is he the Prime Minister.. Never mind, the engineer of the “erratum express” is negotiating with world leaders regardless of what their clumsy and confusing titles seem to be.. Why wasn’t the “Obama Gaffe Czar” around to properly chaperone the 143-day wonder? It’s hard to determine if having Obama yakking with Presidents and Prime Ministers is better or worse than having Rodham doing it..
Everything from cutting off South Korean dignitaries by going to the wrong podium, reading the wrong teleprompter, handing out idiotic and thoughtless gifts or confusing the titles of world leaders convinces the entire planet that this President and Vice President are sorely in need of a accompanying laugh track or at least prerecorded rim shots.. (“I suspect when I speak to President..eh..Prime Minister Putin tomorrow..” Obama trips over Russian leadership tandem Reuters)
Let me spell it out for the Obama administration free of charge: Putin: Geppetto. Medvedev: Pinocchio.. Second clue for the brilliant liberals: Look for the strings attached to the appendages of marionette Medvedev..
Obama immediately described Medvedev as “straightforward, professional and trustworthy”, three descriptors that have eluded Obama throughout his short and amazingly inept political career.
Obama was there to “usher in a new era of friendship after the damage” that was done “during the Bush administration.” (In Confidence- Building Effort, Obama Trusts, Medvedev Empathizes” Foxnews) You have to wonder why Obama doesn’t understand that maybe, just maybe, something done or not done by Prime Minister/President/KGB Chief Putin led to this alleged “damage”.
After all when Bush met with Putin in Camp David in 2001, Bush said, “I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy..” I suppose that Obama, who is not unfamiliar with the plagiarizing of others, just “borrowed” the words from Bush to describe Medvedev as a matter of convenience..
Obama said that Medvedev is “also interested in finding out what the interests of the United States are.” If Medvedev is at all concerned about what Obama’s interests are, I can save him the trouble as I will wager that he already has the appropriate texts on his bookshelves. Just find any tome written by Marx and find any history book covering the “works” of Stalin and you will have a concise read of the “interests” of Obama..
In case no one has “briefed” Obama, the “damage” that was done to the Bush/Putin “relationship”, came to a head when Putin started crowing about “missile defense” in Europe. Also the “relationship” between Russia and Iran might have played a role.. Here Russia began “trading” missile technology (not to mention nuclear technologies as well..) to the Iranians and the American missile defense if implemented in the region would have made the technology that Iran just bought moot. The Iranians wanted the Russians to start telling tall tales about how this missile “defense” would threaten the Russians in hopes of causing the United States to back down. It didn’t work. Yet.. Now with a limp wristed liberal in office, the chances for capitulation are infinitely higher.
“There was no statement of Russian readiness to help the United States persuade Iran to abandon its nuclear ambitions..” In case Obama is kind of in the dark (sorry for the pun) on this one, Russia is the one that has been enabling this whole Iranian nuclear ambition business, probably with both hardware and raw materials.. They are probably screwing the oil rich Iranians to death on this and they will never be all too enthusiastic about killing the goose-steppers that are laying the golden eggs..
When your job is to stand up for America, “damage” is occasionally done to those whose ulterior motives aren’t in the best interests of the United States or it’s allies. If Obama is all about being “friends” and repairing “damage”, then why did he say during an interview prior to this summit that “Putin still had one foot in the old, Cold War way of doing things..”? Wow, both acrimonious and accurate for once. Now however, all bets are off and it is time to cuddle and cajole..
Obama is “hoping to ease Kremlin concerns” by promising that “an assessment of whether the missile defense would actually work would be finished by late summer and he would share initial U.S. thoughts with Medvedev..” (Obama, Medvedev agree to cut nuke weapons” apnews myway) Here a man who habitually lies to American public wants to be honest with the Russians to “ease their concerns”..
He continued on by saying that the missile defense installations “were not being built to intercept missiles from ‘a mighty Russian arsenal.’” If the “mighty Russian arsenal” sends a few missiles towards any of the American allies in the region, this system had better do some serious intercepting.. The “concerns” of the American allies in the region had better turn to deciding whether or not Obama will come to their aid or sell them down the river so that he can be “friends” with Medvedev and Putin..
There were allegedly eight “deals” made between the two, one of which will allow American arms and military personnel to cross Russian land and air space in route to Afghanistan. In case the Russians might have forgotten, we are trying to do what the “mighty Russian arsenal” couldn’t do from 1979-1989. (With Obama as the “Commander in Chief”, will this now become the same type of “engagement” as Russia’s was, an exercise in futility where the troops pay the ultimate price for his tomfoolery?)
The “White House” immediately said that this deal would “save $133 million a year”. “A year?” What is Obama’s “exit plan” for this war? What is his “time table” for withdrawal from this campaign? Just how many “years” is he talking about? You may also write this “$133 million a year” off as the same numerical nonsense as his “save a million jobs” baloney.. (He had better get around to “saving” a few, he and his “stimulus plans” have already hemorrhaged nearly three million..)
Then it was onto the “START” replacement pact. “Each side” is to reduce a number of warheads, launch vehicles and the range with which they can travel. My question is, where will the warheads “travel” once the Russians “reduce” them.. North Korea? Iran? Barack “The True Believer” won’t care, it’s all about being friends and signing treaties..
Medvedev called the plan a “reasonable compromise”. I wonder why such “reasonable compromises” are so easily obtained with foreign dignitaries but the concept is all but extinct when it comes to Obama and his commerce and transactions with American Republicans?
It was all about “easing concerns”. Obama had to ease the concerns of Biden that he would not forget to bring back a few potent potables so that he can restock his cabinet but primarily it was about “easing Kremlin concerns”..
With this President and his staff of “Keystone Cop Communists”, I wish that he could find a way to “ease” America’s concerns first..
