“What does Russia have on Trump?”, asks Nancy Pelosi.
The better question is, what did Putin and Rouhani have on obama?
It’s June of 2001. George W. Bush is President. Bush has a meeting with Vladimir Putin and later said
“I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straight forward and trustworthy and we had a very good dialogue.
“I was able to get a sense of his soul.
“He’s a man deeply committed to his country and the best interests of his country and I appreciate very much the frank dialogue and that’s the beginning of a very constructive relationship,”
For that, Bush was roundly derided by democrats. The NY Times piled on in 2007
Ironically, one of barack obama’s first actions was to take it up the wazoo and abandon that missile system as an offering to Putin but the NY Slimes did not scold obama for it nor did they ask what Russia had on obama. This came after his famous apology for America tour.
Then Russia became our friend while obama was President. Mitt Romney got an earful from obama in the 2012 Presidential debates when Romney claimed that Russia was our #1 geopolitical foe.
“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
And in that same election cycle obama promised he’d take it up the wazoo again for Putin
“On all these issues, but particularly missile defense, this, this can be solved, but it’s important for him to give me space,” Obama told Medvedev, referring to incoming Russian president Vladimir Putin.
“Yeah, I understand,” Medvedev said.
“This is my last election. After my election, I have more flexibility,” Obama added.
“I understand,” Medvedev replied. “I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Was there a single democrat who wondered what Russia had on obama?
Of course not.
In fact, democrats piled on Romney as did obama:
Left wing twit pundits hammered Romney:
“I don’t know what decade this guy’s living in,” MSNBC host Chris Matthews said with a sigh on March 28, 2012. “Is he trying to play Ronald Reagan here, or what?”
“This is Mitt Romney’s severely conservative problem,” University of Georgia professor Cynthia Tucker opined on-the-air. “It made Romney look dumb. He’s not a dumb man, but he said something that was clearly dumb.”
Huffington Post reporter Sam Stein agreed that Romney’s statement was evidence of an “antiquated worldview.” He fretted further about how Romney, should he become president, would enter the office having severely complicated America’s bilateral relations with Moscow given his carelessly provocative statement.
“I personally am worried about what it says to the Russian people,”
I can appreciate why the Romney campaign would try to make Obama’s “hot mic” story interesting, but the problem is the former governor just doesn’t have any real policy chops in this area. He’s out of his depth, and struggles when the subject takes center stage.
It’s not just that Romney is uninformed; it’s that he hasn’t figured out how to fake it.
“I think he really needs to not just accept these cataclysmic sort of pronouncements,” Powell admonished. “Let’s not go creating enemies where none yet exist.”
“Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV,”
These people made very clear that they felt Russia was our best friend. And then the best friend of the US invaded Crimea. Maxine Waters still thinks it was Korea.
obama made a pathetic attempt to defend his complete failure by misstating what Romney said:
And so my response then continues to be what I believe today, which is Russia’s actions are a problem. They don’t pose the number one national security threat to the United States.
That wasn’t what Romney said, but the obama-compliant press ignored it. Obama’s response to the invasion was utterly ludicrous:
Obama unveiled them Monday in a four-minute statement as flat-toned as a legal notice in the classifieds. The consequences? Visa denial and frozen assets for 11 people, seven of them Russian.
Seven! Out of 140 million. No Putin. No Dmitry Medvedev. No oligarchs. Nor any of Putin’s inner circle of ex-KGBers. No targeting of the energy sector or banks, Russia’s industrial and financial lifeblood.
This elicited unreserved mockery from the targeted Russians themselves. One wondered whether the president’s statement had been written by a prankster.
CNN threw up its hands in another one of those “What can obama do?” articles in which they protect their favorite President.
Again, no one questioned what Putin had on obama.
Then obama essentially became an agent of Iran. He pretty gave away the store in the historically bad deal he made with the mullahs, which included $1.7 billion in laundered cash.
And no one asked what Rouhani had on obama.
Since then, both Russia and Iran have been harassing US planes and ships. Right on cue, CNN ran another one of those “what can obama do?” stories defending obama.
Iran seized two US Navy vessels and humiliated the sailors on board. And John Effing Kerry thanked Iran for it.
And no one asks what Rouhani had on obama.
It is of great amusement now as the legacy press is Russian to judgment on Trump but never stopped to ask why obama for eight years took it up the butt for Putin and much of that acted as the Ambassador for Iran. Now the expectations have been raised while obama took a dive.
This is not the first time I’ve noticed but the same press that now hounds Trump for…well, I don’t know at all what he’s done to deserve the invective heaped upon him. If there is a spy among us, he left office last month.
I don’t know what’s in the water at CBS, but Scott Pelley is arguably the biggest a-hole in news today.
Taking it in the ass seems very natural for obama. But, we all know about his dalliances with Larry sinclair among many others.
Putin is a real man who rides horses and motorcycles Obama was a little snowflake riding a stupid bicycle wearing a pee pot helmet
right, obama is more flexible to take it in the rectum by radical muslin terrorist and tell the American people via the fake news media that he won another.
Dr John continues to obsess with his hatred of the last President and wants everyone to disregard the criminal regime now in place.
Dr John spent 8 years howling at the moon at anything and everything he could twist, spin, and mold into something to sell as an Obama “lie” and now wants us to “Forget Trump” who can’t get through a press conference sentence without spewing lie after lie, even lying about what he just lied about-or that he lied about locking up Hillary, draining the swamp, releasing his taxes, Mexico paying for the wall, being beholding to Wall Street, and on and on. Just “forget Trump”.
Dr John spent 8 years twisting and spinning every foreign issue under Obama to paint as something bad and now that we have an international disaster, a President caught up in a scandal that makes Iran Contra and Watergate look like small potatoes, a President who claims to know more than the Generals and brushes off intelligence reports as unneeded and boring, a man who intelligence officials have admitted a concern of even giving the boarder line mad man information- now Dr John wants us to “forget Trump”.
Dr John spent 8 years belly aching and turning blood red every time Michele Obama got a new dress or went on a vacation and now that the tax payers are paying record dollars for an upscale lifestyle of the white first family, just “forget Trump”.
Dr John wrote of morals, and expectation of a President, now that we have a self proclaimed sexual assaulting serial lying regime in place, we should just “forget Trump”.
Dr John, how long should we ignore this mentally questionable serial lying con man? How long should we just obsess with the previous admin rather than just maybe questioning some actions of the present one?
Well said Ajay42302
Nasty nancy the demacrats have plenty of skeletons in their closets too many to count right now but still plenty of skeletons
so the cockold, mulim terrorist ex pres. had morals, ethics and values? right, a slut for the first sos, a second cockold, drunk for the next fours years, kissing the asses and penis of every terrorist organization in the world, stealing from the US to support terrorist operations globally, throwing Israel under the bus, pissing off Russia and China to the brink of war, encouraging fake media news to embellish his feeble administration’s actions, pissing on the Constitution, brenner his cia whore, and the list goes on. who did your genital mutilation-a liberal fried of a muslim?
You follow the playbook of the regular loyalist here and seem to be trying to be some mini-Dr John, making up incredibly ridiculous stuff to pin on the ex-president rather than acknowledging the profound dishonesty, immoral and lewd behaviors, gross incompetence, and the dangerous foreign policy attitude of the present administration.
It seems that the more scandals, lies, screws ups, and madness this con man engages in, the more cowards like you, Dr John, and the other kowtowing hypocrites insist and rallying on the hate fest you had for the previous President, as if that somehow exonerates this thieving, boarder line spastic that is loading up the White House with racists, plutocrats, and incompetent cronies.
Obama is gone, we’ve heard your bigoted and unhinged ranting for years, and it’s time now for dishonest folks like you and Dr John to pull up your big boy panties, get over Obama, and face reality.
You don’t have the balls to call out Trump for who he is so all you have is to keep whipping on the black guy.
you are truly a racist and bigot. obviously your history of American and the world ends with cnn at 11pm. you really need to read more. there is a really good book that you must read: The protected game : a wei-ch’i interpretation of Maoist revolutionary strategy by Scott Boorman. if you can read, this is a masterful book on the current evolving kaleidoscope of how the world players are functioning.
it appears your comeback is some canned response as instead of addressing any point of the argument, you comeback with no more than ad hominem attacks and off topic gibberish.
I’m sure as a well groomed sock puppet, you’ve earned several attaboys from your masters.
Your suggested reading material does nothing to offset the reality that you and your ilk lack the balls to denounce the immoral and dangerous actions of the mad man in the WH and instead, cowardly cling to Obama bashing in order to exonerate it.
@Ajay42302: Trump is not perfect however he is one of the only presidents to make good on his promises. Will things get better? Only time will tell. However I know that Donald Trump loves this country versus the anti-American, islam loving barry soetoro ( his real name) who is continuing his quest to take down our country. Americans first.
@Spurwing Plover: too bad you can’t spell.
I’m not sure what planet you reside on but back here on Earth, this claim that Trump made good on his promises defies reality. He promised to lock Hillary up. He lied. He promised Mexico would pay for the wall. He lied. He promised to be an advocate for blue collar workers. His Sec of Labor pick proved he lied. He promised to drain the swamp and not be a patsy for Wall Street. Another huge lie. He promised to release his tax returns. He lied. How is it by any stretch that you can possibly say with a straight face that in the mere 1 month in office that he has fulfilled his campaign promises when in fact he has blatantly lied more than any president in history?
And with your unfounded and unsubstantiated Obama accusations aside, how is it that you can state as fact that Trump loves America when in fact he has been nothing more than a thieving, lying con man his entire life, even bragging about stealing workers wages as being “good business”?
The Trump WH roll out has been a scandalous disaster and is being questioned by people of all parties and all walks from around the world. The rants of Obama by you and yours doesn’t change that.
Dr. John continues his nutty fetish with an anus.
@Ajay42302: Soro’s gave you a 2 week extension? Geez, I can’t even imagine what you had to do to get that.
Remember the “honeymoon period” presidents used to get? Trump was attacked as a failure before he was even inaugurated.
What had Obama accomplished at this point… closed GITMO? Last I looked, GITMO is still open.
Absolute morons like AJ that can’t (or refuse to) see the stark contrast and liberal hypocrisy are wasted spaces. THEY are the reason this country is in such a mess right now because THEY support the idiots that made it so.
Bush,Obama and Clinton nothing more then puppets for the NWO and the USELESS NATIONS and BIG BROTHER to force america to surrender its soventry to the One World Goverment under the Useless Nations
The best quote I’ve heard in months
“If there is a spy among us, he left office last month.”
We laughed. Thanks so much 🙂
@RedTeam: Witty, RedTeam.
I’ve been told there’s site to go grab your euphemisms to make yourself sound smart and witty.
DrJohn ought to visit that site, along with you RedTEam.
@PhillipMarlowe: Geez philip, first you tell me I’m witty then you tell me I should visit a site to make me witty. Is this standard confusion, or accelerated? I’ve been thinking of changing my name to Sam Spade or Mike Hammer, do you know those guys? But Dr John did mention a few months ago that he had been to Wittyville, I think that’s the place you have in mind.
Congrats on your contract extension, along with AJ, I understand it’s ‘desperate times’ for trolls and extensions are all that’s being offered.
