Vlad - the impaler

I read Vladimir Putin's piece in the New York Times - and couldn't help but wonder whether or not it was ghost-written by Bill Ayers. You remember Ayres, the Weather Underground Terrorist who ghost wrote the Barack Obama 'autobiography', Dreams of my Father. In his article, Putin appropriated the 2008 Obama's core platitude: "We must work together to keep this hope alive." So either its Ayers or the Russian speechwriters are working in the same mode as Ayers did.

Charles Crawford, Britain's former ambassador in Serbia and Poland, called last Monday "the worst day for U.S.and wider western diplomacy since records began." Maybe. For many of us, accustomed to the Obama Regime, it was just another day of ObamaNation. We know that Barack is an uncouth dweeb who couldn't find his ass with both hands. The Press and to some extent, internationalists painted him as urbane, intelligent, and "Leader of the Free World". He's never been any of those things. At best he was a ghetto agitator from Chicago who was noticed by the Chicago Party structure and elevated. Because Americans are apathetic, and because many voters get their information from Saturday Night Live, MTV and other sterling news outlets...he was elected. What does that say about the US?
(IBD) A month ago, Assad was a reviled war criminal and Putin his arms dealer. Now, Putin is the honest broker and Obama's partner for peace, and the war criminal is at the negotiating table with his chances of survival better than they've looked in a year. 
On the same day the U.S. announced it would supply the Syrian rebels with light arms and advanced medical kits, Russia announced it would give Assad's buddies in Iran the S-300 ground-to-air weapons system and another nuclear reactor. 
Putin has pulled off something incredible: He's gotten Washington to anoint him as the international community's official peacemaker, even as he assists Iran in going nuclear and keeping their blood-soaked Syrian client in his presidential palace. 
Already, under the "peace process," Putin and Assad are running rings around the dull-witted Kerry, whose Botoxicated visage embodies all too well the expensively embalmed state of the superpower.
Three and a half more years...

  1. Yep, what a guy that Vlad is . . . pay no attention to the "carrier killers" being moved into the Med . . . we've paid quite a price to have an "articulate black man" sitting in the "big chair".

    1. He's only "articulate" when he has a teleprompter in front of him... Makes me so proud.

  2. Nice post.

    Team Obama? What a Krew of Klowns. Vlad's laughing all the way to the NYT.

    1. Actually, Vlad's speech writers are better than most of the phlegmatic journalists at the NYT. And English isn't their first language... unless it's Ayers.

  3. But he can find his ass with both hands LL! How else could he spread his cheeks?

    1. I suspect that Vlad did him the courtesy of spreading them -- but the discourtesy of not lubing, or wearing protection. The last time I saw Obama on TV, he was walking like a duck.

  4. The cult of personality around Putin is almost as strong as it is around Obama. Maybe even stonger now that more people see the empty chair for what he is every day. Young westerners in particular seem to admire Putin because he's seen as a cool badass. They don't take into account the fact the he's also ruthless and calculating.

    Kind of like the idiots who used to where Che T-shirts. Yeah, its going to be a long 3 1/2 years. I just hope it doesn't get even worse after that milestone.

    1. Putin has made the Russians feel as if they "are somebody" again, and that will make him more popular at home.

      America relies on political correctness to guide our actions and looks up to people like Oprah, which means that we have big problems.

  5. Reality is no longer one of our strong points.

    1. It's the reality of Cher, George Clooney, Oprah, San Francisco transvestites, Chicago union organizers and black preachers like Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.

  6. Barack believes in American Exceptionalism...just as Vlad believes in Russian Exceptionalism, and Bashar believes in Syrian Exeptionalism.

    1. Barack needs to overthrow Kenya so that when his term of office has ended, he can declare himself dictator for life there - and pontificate to his people.

  7. It is getting harder all the time for Obama to hide his incompetence from America. Too bad this happened a year too late.

    1. He was the worst possible choice for the nation. Now we have to pay for it.

  8. This is NOT going to end well... And they just pushed Moskva into the Med...

    1. Slava class cruisers are a threat, but in the Med, they're also much easier targets for submarines and aircraft. They're an old class of ship -- still effective and not a paper tiger at all.
