Another Dark Day for America

Putin-Obama Meme 1

I think it’s fair to say that Putin spit in Obama’s face yesterday, and then rubbed it in for good measure.

Just the other day, President Obama made a Clintonian-like statement regarding a possible intervention in Syria, “First of all, I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”

Um, except that Obama did set a red line.

On Aug. 20, 2012, Obama said, “We have been very clear to the Assad regime … that a red line for us is, we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.”

That’s a pretty pathetic attempt to extricate himself from a poorly thought out statement, but not unexpected anymore.

Obama painted himself into a corner, and he’s been trying to weasel his way out of it, ever since he realized that people were listening to what he said and trying to hold him to it.

And now Obama apparently believes that Putin has pulled his chestnuts out of the fire. Syria will (maybe) give up their chemical weapons. Russia and Iran(!) will be guarantors of the deal.

Of course, Putin wasted no time in using this victory to reposition Russia as the world’s new, undefied superpower. He announced he is going to complete the sale to Iran of the S-300 anti-aircraft missiles that he was forced to halt 3 years ago. He’s going to build another nuclear reactor in Iran. (And let’s not forget Snowden). Everything that America doesn’t (shouldn’t?) want to happen.

[ED: Putin is denying yesterday's reports that he will be completing the S-300 deal]

So, if you haven’t gotten the point yet, Obama just unilaterally demoted the US from being the sole global superpower. He just gave Iran a green light to do what they want without fear of reprisal, and he personally conceded world leadership to Vladmir Putin.

September 11 will once again go down in history as another dark day for America.

    Putin is a jerk. He will never have half the class or style of any American president. He will always be a thug.

    Is there any doubt that Obama is the worst president ever? Or that America needs to rethink it's position and it's leaders. We are falling apart and Obama is leading the way.

  7. Treason since Nov. 2008!

  8. We are witnessing the beginning of a new Cold War. A nation without a vision of itself and its society soon grows weary of any entanglements.


  9. Cody Flecker says:

    You will upset the 72% of the Jewish electorate who have voted for Obama and the anti semitic Democrats. Please watch what you say. No need for you to get these JewishWorldReview.com voters that upset over their poor choices in 2008 and 2012.

  10. Eva Feld says:

    I believe Maurice is right. A new cold war a much meaner one and in greater depth with a war-weary society. That said, America has a way of refreshing itself and surprise itself and the world.

    Obama is only a big mouth and golf player, he wanted to be President of US, but he didn't realized untill today the high responsibilities needs for this posting, he is a clown, showman, actor and a spot in the Senate and Congress.

  12. DorothyMyers says:

    It’s a puzzle to me why Jewish voters are majority Democrat and voted for Obama.  Wish I understood this, but I don’t.  Obama is no friend of Israel, no friend of entrepreneurship, no friend of business.

  13. Ann Puckett says:

    Your words about Obummer were really rather kind.

    Gotta love the picture. Did you notice that each is staring at the other's hand, no eye contact. If that isn't a cold war symbol in and of itself, I don't know what is. On the left is mr. potato head, on the right mr. waffle, and mr. potato head is thinking, "I can squash this waffle like an over-ripe banana…

    America lost the day the half light half dark illegal from Kenya was elected something of a leader in the U.S. a guy who don't even know who daddy is as mommy was easy as a beer for a night stand.

  16. do not worry and have no doubts…Obama is contributing to the decline of the USA, do not blame me…I would rather have voted for mickey mouse than for him. voted McCain and Romney…and proud I did. God bless the USA in these the beginning of the end as a super-power…what a shame…

  17. Basha Kline says:

    Why don't they sht or get off the pot….!

  18. Please pray for us. America is in horrible trouble. No relief is seen on the horizon.
