This Isn't High School. Does Obama Think He's Leader of the Plastics?
President Obama called Russian ruler Vladimir Putin Saturday afternoon and threatened to blackball him from the Mean Girls club.
“President Obama made clear that Russia’s continued violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity would negatively impact Russia’s standing in the international community,” the White House said.
This is lame. Who does Obama thing he is, Regina George?
Apparently Obama is unfamiliar with Napoleon's famous maxim: "When you set out to take Vienna, take Vienna." Putin wants Ukraine and intends to take Ukraine.
“The United States calls on Russia to de-escalate tensions by withdrawing its forces back to bases in Crimea and to refrain from any interference elsewhere in Ukraine,”
Why would Russia do that? Who is in a position to stop him? This isn't high school. He's not afraid that Obama will talk behind his back.
There is only one possibility that would make Putin back up and appear to give Obama a win. Remember that Obama is in the process of gutting the military to pass out more food stamps. A militarily belligerent Russia could cause a backlash in congress and foil this plan. A secret deal between Putin and Obama, with Russia appearing to back down from the Ukrainian invasion, could set the stage for further military cutbacks and give free rein to Russia, no matter who the American President is in 2016.
