Who is afraid of the emasculated Obama?
President Obama spoke for 90 minutes this afternoon with President Putin of Russia about the situation in Ukraine. President Obama expressed his deep concern over Russia’s clear violation of Ukrainian sovereignty and territorial integrity, which is a breach of international law, including Russia’s obligations under the UN Charter, and of its 1997 military basing agreement with Ukraine, and which is inconsistent with the 1994 Budapest Memorandum and the Helsinki Final Act. The United States condemns Russia’s military intervention into Ukrainian territory.
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.
Not Putin that’s for sure:
The Russian president stressed the existence of real threats to the lives and well-being of Russian citizens and numerous compatriots located in the Ukraine. Vladimir Putin underscored that should the violence spread further to the eastern regions of the Ukraine and the Crimea, Russia reserves the right to protect its interests and the Russian-speaking population living there.
You know what this is? That’s telling him to go f**k himself.
Obama did not attend the WH national security meeting on Ukraine but was briefed by natsec adviser Susan Rice.

For five years the left battered Palin about her prediction that if elected Obama’s moral equivalence, his complete ambivalence to anything foreign affairs, would embolden Putin to invade the Ukraine…[youtube]http://youtu.be/6PMmY20nJ8E[/youtube]

They were mocked by the DNC:
They were right.
We needed a President who had some kind of foreign policy experience, some one who wouldn’t be kicked around the school yard by the bullies. Instead we got this yahoo. The only way you stop someone like this asshat Putin is if he believed you would back up your threats.
No one is afraid of Obama, and the United States, anymore.
