It only took Obama 5 years...

…To turn a cold war vic­tory that it took half a dozen pres­i­dents from Harry Tru­man to George Bush 41 to win into defeat.

The ques­tion isn’t if Putin is going to keep the Crimea that’s already been estab­lished, the ques­tion is: Will there be an inde­pen­dent coun­try called “Ukraine” any­more or if it does exist how much land it will con­sist of?

The United States will have absolutely no say in the mat­ter, the EU will have no say in the mat­ter, only Rus­sia & Putin will make that deci­sion with only per­haps China as a lim­it­ing factor.

But that’s not a sign this pres­i­dent has reopened the Cold war and lost. This is:

Rus­sia says it is nego­ti­at­ing with eight gov­ern­ments around the world for access to mil­i­tary facil­i­ties, to enable it to extend its long-​range naval and strate­gic bomber capabilities.

Defense Min­is­ter Sergei Shoigu said Wednes­day the mil­i­tary was engaged in talks with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Alge­ria, Cyprus, the Sey­chelles, Viet­nam and Singapore.

Mean­while back in the us what is the leader of the free world doing:

A White House offi­cial emailed some reporters to say that Pres­i­dent Obama’s team met today to dis­cuss the ongo­ing sit­u­a­tion on Ukraine. It appears Pres­i­dent Obama did not attend.

Seri­ously?

Per­haps instead the National Secu­rity Team should have invited Sarah Palin, she appar­ently has a bet­ter grasp on the sit­u­a­tion than Barack Obama.

The only thing more pathetic than the president’s response is this from the media such as this head­line at Politico:

Putin’s Reck­less Ukraine Gambit

Reck­less”? Reck­less implies he is tak­ing a risk, Vladimir Putin has dealt with Barack Obama and this admin­is­tra­tion he knows that oppos­ing the man who removed the bust of Win­ston Churchill did not involve risk.

There is only one ques­tion left to ask in my mind: Is the defeat of the United States, the emas­cu­la­tion of it’s inter­na­tional pres­tige, the aban­don­ment of our allies and the gut­ting of our mil­i­tary a bug or a fea­ture to Pres­i­dent Barack Obama?

If five years ago some­one asked me that ques­tion I would have called them crazy,

That I am ask­ing this ques­tion and hon­estly don’t know the answer, sad­dens me beyond belief.

Gen­er­a­tions still unborn in coun­tries around the world will pay for our deci­sion to elect the first affir­ma­tive action president.

Its the first day of March and we’re com­ing off our biggest short­fall ever for our monthly goal just under $500 shy of the mortgage.

How­ever there is also a weekly pay­check goal which took a back seat due to the mort­gage short­fall, we’re only $115 shy there and with the rest of the day to do it, that’s entirely doable.

5 $25 tip jar hits will give us that con­so­la­tion prize and get us started toward mak­ing the March goal.

We’ve never failed to meet pay­roll & Mort­gage two months in a row (in fact we’ve only missed them by any sig­nif­i­cant amount twice in 13 months). Let’s get March off to a good start to so that doesn’t hap­pen now.

…To turn a cold war victory that it took half a dozen presidents from Harry Truman to George Bush 41 to win into defeat.

The question isn’t if Putin is going to keep the Crimea that’s already been established, the question is: Will there be an independent country called “Ukraine” anymore or if it does exist how much land it will consist of?

The United States will have absolutely no say in the matter, the EU will have no say in the matter, only Russia & Putin will make that decision with only perhaps China as a limiting factor.

But that’s not a sign this president has reopened the Cold war and lost. This is:

Russia says it is negotiating with eight governments around the world for access to military facilities, to enable it to extend its long-range naval and strategic bomber capabilities.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said Wednesday the military was engaged in talks with Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Algeria, Cyprus, the Seychelles, Vietnam and Singapore.

Meanwhile back in the us what is the leader of the free world doing:

A White House official emailed some reporters to say that President Obama’s team met today to discuss the ongoing situation on Ukraine. It appears President Obama did not attend.

Seriously?

Perhaps instead the National Security Team should have invited Sarah Palin, she apparently has a better grasp on the situation than Barack Obama.

The only thing more pathetic than the president’s response is this from the media such as this headline at Politico:

Putin’s Reckless Ukraine Gambit

“Reckless”? Reckless implies he is taking a risk, Vladimir Putin has dealt with Barack Obama and this administration he knows that opposing the man who removed the bust of Winston Churchill did not involve risk.

There is only one question left to ask in my mind: Is the defeat of the United States, the emasculation of it’s international prestige, the abandonment of our allies and the gutting of our military a bug or a feature to President Barack Obama?

If five years ago someone asked me that question I would have called them crazy,

That I am asking this question and honestly don’t know the answer, saddens me beyond belief.

Generations still unborn in countries around the world will pay for our decision to elect the first affirmative action president.

Its the first day of March and we’re coming off our biggest shortfall ever for our monthly goal just under $500 shy of the mortgage.

However there is also a weekly paycheck goal which took a back seat due to the mortgage shortfall, we’re only $115 shy there and with the rest of the day to do it, that’s entirely doable.

5 $25 tip jar hits will give us that consolation prize and get us started toward making the March goal.

We’ve never failed to meet payroll & Mortgage two months in a row (in fact we’ve only missed them by any significant amount twice in 13 months). Let’s get March off to a good start to so that doesn’t happen now.
