We tried to warn you. Even Cankles tried to warn you. Now, look at the mess we're in.

You elect a boy king and what does he do? Acts like a boy king.

They won't even let him attend security meetings anymore.

Regardless, Obama will be well-spoken and clean in response to Putin's aggression.

He will harp about global warming and the need for more social experimentation.

He will harrumph mightily.

I don't fully understand whats going on here, but I know this is a pretty serious matter. Russia has violated Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is a breach of international law. And the semiautonomous region of Crimea, a strategically important peninsula on the Black Sea is being threatened. And Putin just asked the Russian parliament for approval to send forces into the Ukraine.

In the past Obama rejected military involvement in Syria’s civil war, in which 140,000 people have died since he first called on President Bashar al-Assad to step down. The same kinda thing could happen here. Isn't it a gun loving republicans duty to have an intelligent conversation about this?

Countries are loosing their freedom, strategically important land areas are being threatened, and huge numbers of innocent people are being killed.

Heh. Only a lunatic would, as president of the US, attack Russia over something as minor as conventional troops in the Ukraine following a popular revolt that overthrew their government.

This is most likely similar to, but lesser than, what the rest of the world felt when we went charging into Iraq for disproven reasons. It's not right, but not worth a war over.

This not a problem for the US alone. It is an international problem with countries that have a greater interest in the situation than the US does. Maybe he should shut his mouth and listen to what others have to say; other international leaders who have the knowledge and experience? He should think about leaving this to the experts.

Merkel got Putin to agree to a fact finding mission - a step forward. Obama had a 90 minute telephone conversation with Putin and apparently nothing came out of it, otherwise we would have heard about it.

LOL..what international leaders with knowledge? Name 'em.

A fact finding mission? That's cute. What facts are there that Merkel doesn't already know? That's a step forward?

I mean, if there are so many facts out there that we don't know about, then how do you know that Obama is all wrong about everything? Obviously the facts aren't all in then, are they?

BTW...if this isn't a problem for the USA alone (this isn't a problem for us at all actually), what other countries is this a problem for and why shouldn't we leave this matter completely in their hands and worry about our own affairs?

I don't respect obambo enough to call him a respectful name and "boy king" is EXACTLY how he's governing.
Obama would love to govern, I mean rule like Putin. Now if he could just get rid of that thing called the constitution.
