Is Obama Exploiting Poland to Instigate a Crisis?

Barack Obama, Donald TuskOriginally posted at American Thinker

Barack Obama should take a break from Sunday siestas, defending desert turtles, and scarfing plates of $300 “endangered bluefin tuna” sushi. Then, maybe he’d have the time to shed some light on the rationale behind promising ex-KGB intelligence officer Vladimir Putin that after the 2012 election he’d “have more flexibility” in his future dealings with Russia.

Hadn’t Obama already kowtowed to Russian pressure concerning missile defense in Eastern Europe? At the time, Putin called Obama’s disloyalty to Poland “correct and brave,” while former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called the decision “a gift” to Russia, who Romney later referred to as “our No. 1 geopolitical foe.”

Now, as Pectoralis Major Putin exhibits yet another show of strength by engaging in military exercises on the Ukrainian border, the Pentagon’s press secretary, Rear Adm. John Kirby, announces that an initial contingent (as in, more to follow) of 600 ground troops will flex America’s muscles at Russia by conducting military exercises of their own in Eastern Europe.

All was well when Obama dropped missile defense in Poland and told Dmitry Medvedev that after the 2012 election he’d “have more flexibility.” But things began to go south after Obama, looking somewhat like a wuss on the world stage, attempted to compensate by being big and butch at the G8 Summit in Ireland. Toughening his stance, Obama strong-armed Putin by claiming first dibs on the hotel gym. That workout standoff could be what led a steamed Putin to embark on an icy early morning swim in Lough Erne River to plot his revenge.

After that, in another exhibition of boundless hubris, America’s first gay president attempted to give Putin a figurative noogie by sending a delegation of homosexuals to the gay-unfriendly Sochi Olympic Games in Russia.  That provocative move may have been what incited Putin to bestow on former Russian figure skater Irina Rodnina, the woman who tweeted a racist picture of the first lady and the president, the honor of lighting the Olympic torch.

At this juncture what’s clear is that the Russian president has zero respect for his American adversary.  Meanwhile, Barack Obama has proven to be so weak and infantile, it’s as if Putin is amusing himself by shooting at Obama’s feet to make him hop around doing a ‘bullet dance.’

Unfortunately for the rest of the world, as the juvenile tit-for-tat continues the stakes have become much higher, and now instead of gym space and gay rights, peace and World War III hang in the balance. Which raises the question: Why all of a sudden is Obama displaying concern for Eastern Europe’s welfare and taking a defensive stance against Russia? 

Well, according to the Rear Admiral, deploying troops is a “very tangible representation of our commitment to our security obligations in Europe, and the message is to the people of those countries and to the alliance that we do take it seriously.” 

Aren’t “the people of those countries” the very allies Obama betrayed when he gave Pootie-Poot Putin a perverted thrill by abandoning missile defense? Rear Admiral Kirby continued, “And I think if there’s a message to Moscow, it is the same exact message – that we take our obligations very, very seriously on the continent of Europe.”

That message is quite different from the one Mr. Flexibility sent Russia in 2010 when, eight months after shelving missile defense he insulted the Republic of Poland a second time by golfing instead of attending President Lech Kaczynski’s funeral after Kaczynski, his wife, and dozens of Polish government officials were killed in a foggy plane crash in Smolensk, Russia.

Let’s face it, if it raises money for the DNC Barack Obama would probably be willing to be lowered into a molten sulfur pit. Yet Obama says he missed the Polish president’s funeral because a scary volcano in Iceland was spewing volcanic ash. Barry’s Eyjafjallajökull apology must have tickled the funny bone of Vlad, who for sport dodges icebergs while swimming in the Siberian River.

But what makes no sense is that after repeatedly insulting Poland, supposedly because of concerns over “security obligations in Europe,” Barack Obama – via the Pentagon – is now willing to disregard the danger of potentially ramping up a conflict with Russia that some say could bring the world to the brink of nuclear war.

Based on the turn of events, and although it’s pure speculation, one can only surmise that Obama’s Eastern European defense is based on something other than worries about the safety of Eastern Europeans. In the end, “fundamentally transforming the United States of America” is the only obligation Cloward and Piven’s star pupil Barack Obama has ever really been committed to.

Think about it – thus far, the list of accomplishments Mr. Obama can take credit for include the ruination of the U.S. economy, cutting a swathe through America’s job market, and initiating the undoing of the greatest healthcare system in the world.  In addition, after occupying the office of president for six years, with his approval approximately seven million unborn babies have been aborted at the rate of about 3,000 per day.

Obama’s open-borders policy has inundated our country with criminal illegal aliens who are given preference over American citizens. Our nation’s allies are insulted, our enemies emboldened, and, as witnessed in Benghazi, radical Islam is revitalized. 

The national debt has been run up to unheard-of levels, the hardworking are punished with high taxes, Christians are persona non grata, the First Amendment is in shreds and the Second Amendment is dangerously close to the shredder as well.  And because Barack Obama has systematically decimated the U.S. military and diminished America’s nuclear arsenal, any sane person would agree that now is not the best time to tempt fate with military altercations.

But military unpreparedness matters little, because Barack Obama has already proven that if it puts a cherry on top of his ‘fundamental transformation’ sundae, he would gladly tweak an international crisis.  And if pissing off Vladimir Putin by feigning concern for Eastern Europe accomplishes that goal, then so be it.

Polar Bear Putin’s Refusal to Extradite Snowden

vladimir_putin_and_botox_640_06Originally posted at American Thinker blog

At the G8 Summit in Ireland, Barack Obama had an opportunity to quell tension with Vladimir Putin over Syria by stepping aside and allowing the Russian president to use the exercise facilities that the president’s people had reserved first.

Wasn’t it Barack Obama who leaned in and whispered to Dmitry Medvedev to deliver the message to Mr. Putin that after the 2012 election, he’d be more flexible?  Then why, when given the chance to prove it, didn’t Obama forego the gym and allow Putin to use the workout space?

Instead of exhibiting diplomatic graciousness, me-first Obama favored himself and proved once again that his inflexibility in the little things is indicative of his inflexibility in larger things.

Prior to the Ireland gym standoff, Putin was already visibly annoyed with the man-child president.  Consequently, one can only guess what was running through Polar Bear Putin’s mind as the Russian muscleman chopped his way through the frigid waters of the lake surrounding Co Fermanagh’s Lough Erne hotel.

Thankfully, while Obama was doing curls with three-pound weights, Putin didn’t decide to make a show of force by working out his biceps and triceps chopping frozen wood for the hotel fireplace.

Nevertheless, it didn’t take long to find out what Putin was plotting while aerobically exercising in that ice bath!

Recently, Russia was presented with a perfect opportunity in the form of ex-CIA employee/NSA leaker Edward Snowden seeking asylum.  In response, Putin seems to be responding to American requests for Snowden’s return with the same level of inflexibility Barack Obama showed when he pointed toward the lake and told Vladimir to “have a great workout!”

Obama himself is probably one of the main reasons that while Russian immigration authorities review his plea for asylum, Edward “the whistleblower” Snowden is safely hunkered down in Moscow’s Sheremetyevo Airport.

Much like Obama enjoyed his time in that temperature-controlled gym, now, compliments of the Kremlin, Snowden is safely in the bosom of Putin-provided refuge.

Meanwhile, regardless of how authoritatively the U.S. begs or how earnestly Eric “Fast and Furious” Holder promises that if they send Snowden home, he won’t personally arrange the execution of the whistleblower, Putin has dug in with the same type of obstinacy Obama displayed when refusing to give up the weight room in that Irish hotel.

Not only that, but from the geriatric ward also known as the U.S. Senate comes the laughable threat that if Snowden is not extradited, sanctions will be imposed against Russia that include “revocation or suspension of trade privileges and preferences.”  Well, that certainly must have caused Putin to quake in his frozen swim trunks.

Come on, now — does anyone really believe that America’s Mom-Jeans President, or Senator Harry Reid or John McCain, intimidates a judo champion who swims in Siberian rivers and reels in pikes as big as crocodiles?  I think not.

Vladimir’s spokesperson Dmitry Peskov maintains that Snowden’s request for temporary asylum is not on the Russian president’s agenda.  Yet Vladimir did find time to take a break from ice hockey to send a friendly message via Peskov to Obama saying that “Russia … never extradite[s] anyone, and will not extradite” Snowden.

That’s why the same flexibility Obama demonstrated when he had the chance to spare Putin an early-morning swim in Lough Erne is being shown to him with regard to Edward Snowden.  Now it’s the Kremlin that has dibs on what Obama wants, and it’s Putin who is refusing to back down.

Vladimir Tells Mr. Flexible to Go Jump in a Lake

Vladimir-Putin_1472816cOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

It seems like just yesterday that Barack Obama sent a message to Vladimir Putin, via outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev, that after the 2012 election he’d have “more flexibility.”  A year and a half after Obama sent that message, Putin found out what America is coming to realize: nothing Barack Obama says means anything.  If Obama said he’d have “more flexibility,” the Russians should have expected unwavering rigidity.

Putin’s revelation started at the G8 summit in Ireland, where the two leaders “butted heads” over Syria.  Russia is Assad’s main weapons supplier; that’s why Putin is not pleased with the Obama policy of agreeing to arm rebel forces in Syria with U.S. weapons or the plan to send another $300 million in aid for Syrian refugees.

When discussing Syria in two-hour talks, neither Putin nor Mr. Flexible would budge.  But then again, Putin shouldn’t have had to budge, because he wasn’t the one who bragged about being flexible.

Then after Mr. Flexibility and Mr. Ex-KGB both put in a bid for the fitness suite at the resort hosting the G8 summit, neither wanted to give up rights to the space, nor did they want to work out together.  Obama not wanting to work out with muscleman tough guy Vladimir Putin is understandable.  Although Obama claims to be flexible, macho Putin could lift him over his head, spin him around, and snap him like a dry twig.  So Obama was smart to avoid rousing the Russian president’s testosterone in close quarters.

The dissension was over use of the gym; Obama’s lapdogs had requested it first, so the Russians backed down.  After boasting about flexibility, one would think that Barry would have graciously relinquished his spot in the gymnasium and, for diplomacy’s sake, allowed the Russian president to use the facility.  Sulky child that he is, Barack Obama did not give up his spot, and chose to stay indoors in an air-conditioned fitness room, working out with a personal trainer.

Meanwhile, Putin swam in a cold Northern Ireland lake near the Co Fermanagh’s Lough Erne hotel.  Although the water in Fermanagh is icy, let us not forget that while Obama dribbles around the hardwood pretending to be a baller in his mom jeans, Vladimir Putin swims in Siberian rivers.

As Putin chopped through the frigid lake, one can only imagine his thoughts on Mr. Flexible.  Here it is, a few weeks later, and the world may be finding out what was on the Russian president’s mind.

After digging in over Syria and commandeering the G8 gym, President Obama is demanding that Putin hand over NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowden, who arrived in Moscow after Hong Kong refused to honor a U.S. extradition request and allowed him to board a plane to Russia.

With the same measure of flexibility Mr. Obama has exhibited on Syria, and more importantly the G8 gym space, a defiant Russia refused to hand over Snowden.

The U.S., via Secretary of State John “Swiftboat” Kerry, is threatening retaliation if the Kremlin does not cooperate, saying, “They are on notice with respect to our desires.”  Whoa!  Now that’s scary.

In other words, just like Putin made his desires known to Obama in Northern Ireland, Obama has now made his desires known to Putin in Russia.  Fully aware that Mr. Flexible is not flexible at all, Mr. Putin is responding by giving back to Obama what Obama dishes out and has all but told him to “go jump in a lake.”

The Obama Bankruptcy Curse Strikes Again!

3237164755_e34da6809eOriginally posted at American Thinker blog

If an establishment is endowed with enough history to be able to hang a plaque on the wall that says “George Washington Slept Here,” that business usually grows.  With Barack Obama, it’s the exact opposite.  That’s why when Obama visits or supports a business, the plaque should read “Because of Barack Obama the business you didn’t build will soon be out of business.”

If Obama backs a solar energy company it is almost certain that a shutdown is in the offing.  To date, approximately 34 Obama-backed green energy companies have gone bankrupt, the most well-known being Solyndra. With the help of a highly Obama-touted half-billion dollar federal loan guarantee, Solyndra expanded their solar panel operations and created 158 jobs.  Then, 15 months later the company filed Chapter 11 and laid off 1,100 employees.

The Obama curse is not limited to green energy companies.  In 2009 the President visited Cardinal Fasteners in Bedford Heights, Ohio, and by 2011 the bolt-maker was in Chapter 11 and was forced to suspend operations.

From the looks of things, in 2009 Barack really spread the bankrupting joy around. To promote his economic stimulus plan the president toured Allentown Metal Works, a 100-year-old Pennsylvania metal fabrication company that specialized in making heavy-duty steel components for bridges and power plants as well as for the cement and mining industries.  The Lehigh Valley manufacturer didn’t get a 15-month or two-year reprieve; by 2010 the plant’s gate was padlocked.

And yet again in 2009, as part of his business-busting/pro-stimulus bill marathon Barack bulldozed his way into the heavy machinery manufacturer Caterpillar in Peoria, Illinois. After the President’s visit Caterpillar notified an additional 2,454 workers that they were “losing their jobs as the company continues to try to bring production in line with plummeting demand…The bulk of the job cuts – nearly 1,600 in all – [were] in Illinois at the company’s plants in East Peoria.”

Most would likely agree that it’s one thing when manufacturers of solar panels, steel components, and bulldozers get the deathblow, but when the Obama whammy starts hitting eateries, no one is safe.  And I mean no one.

Last year while on the road campaigning in Ohio, while passing through Akron, Obama stopped for breakfast.  The president ate two eggs over easy, bacon and wheat toast, hugged the owner Josephine “Anne” Harris, took a couple of courtesy photos, and left. Two hours later, the 70-year-old owner of Ann’s Place succumbed to natural causes and went home to be with the Lord.

In June of 2010, while down by the Gulf of Mexico eating snow cones and inspecting tar balls after the BP spill, Obama graced Camardelle’s Seafood with his esteemed presence.

At the time, Barack was on a mission to save the Gulf restaurant industry by proving the seafood was safe to eat.  He proved it by scarfing down enough shrimp and crawfish at Camardelle’s to choke a Louisiana catfish.  After he made his point, the following month the Grand Isle restaurant was forced to put up a “Closed” sign.

Then there was the New Chef’s Restaurant in Toledo, Ohio. Obama cited the 70-year-old establishment as an “indirect beneficiary of the government’s Chrysler bailout.” Obama, who has always been a stickler for pronouncing names correctly (like ‘Navy Corpse-man Christian [sic] Brossard’), praised workers at a nearby Chrysler Wrangler plant, saying, “And this plant indirectly supports hundreds of other jobs right here in Toledo. After all, without you, who’d eat at Chet’s or Inky’s or Rudy’s?”

A week after being mentioned in that speech, Chet’s…sorry, Chef’s Restaurant, after feeding the local community for almost three-quarters of a century, boarded up the windows, locked the front door, and walked away.

Now we come to find out that the owners of Washington DC’s Ray’s Hell Burger, Nice and Greasy Steak and Cheesy, and Ray’s Hell Burger Too are also closing up shop after failing to pay the rent.

Ray’s Hell Burger is home to the Soul Burger Number One, the Fat Joe, and the BIG Poppa.

Ray’s is where number one soul man, ultimate Big Poppa Barack Obama and his zany sidekick Phat Joe Biden used to dine together on occasion.  When Barry was looking for a very special place to take Russian dignitary President Dmitry Medvedev, Ray’s Hell Burger was the place to go.

Obama ate juicy burgers at Ray’s and now the celebrated landmark has been served an eviction notice for being $39,000 in arrears for rent and damages.  Tragedies like this illustrate that while “George Washington slept here” is a sure-fire way to make money, “Barack Obama dripped grease and mustard on this wooden top table” just isn’t enough history to keep the doors open or the rent paid.

Nonetheless, either way, businesses all across America continue to prove the President’s controversial campaign contention that “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.”

But if that’s true, then it must also be true that if, through no fault of your own, you no longer have a successful business that you didn’t build, “you didn’t get there on your own…somebody along the line gave you some help.” And that somebody would be Barack Obama.

The End Result of Obama’s Logic

Originally posted at American Thinker

In Barack Obama’s economy, it appears as if making a philosophical point is worth the loss of American lives. For example, in an appeal to the gay lobby Obama mandated that, in the midst of war, our military be purposely distracted from the pressing issue of defeating the Taliban, by demanding combat troops give precedence to gay sensitivity training on the battlefield.

In addition, the President of the United States seems committed to strengthening America’s enemies by ignoring the true motives of those whose intent is to do us harm. On more than one occasion, after military personnel were murdered in cold blood by “Allahu Akbar”-screaming terrorists, Obama – careful not to be offensive to Islam – refused to refer to terrorism as such.  Instead, rather than condemn the obvious, an emotionless Obama called an act of holy war a “horrific outburst of violence,” leaving the judgment of jihadists to formal inquiry.

North Korea and Pakistan are nuked up. Iran and even Venezuela are careening in that direction. China and Russia, try as they might to pretend otherwise, are poised for military alliance, while Obama’s “world without nuclear weapons” national security policy is at work undermining America’s ability to defend itself.

As the world grows increasingly dangerous, and in hopes of spurring a “denuclearization discipleship,” Obama decided to start the process by emasculating the United States through disarmament.  Barack’s nuclear-free world mantra is devoid of “Peace through strength…trust but verify and beware of evil in the modern world.” In a schoolyard full of bullies dying to take a baseball bat to America’s skull, little Barry comes armed with a water pistol.

To prove his unwavering commitment to a nuclear-free world, the President signed a treaty with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to reduce deployed strategic nuclear warhead arsenals by 90 percent, from 31,000 to 1,500.  Such an irresponsible resolution points to Barack being one of two things: diabolical or naïve. Unfortunately, either way, the outcome is the same – Americans are placed at risk and our country is “fundamentally transformed” into a castrated third-rate power.

Maybe Barack just has an aversion to self-preservation, because the ratified treaty not only limits America’s nuclear arsenal, it gives Russia the right to inspect our reserves after the fact and restricts the nation’s ability to respond to nuclear attack.  Moreover, the START Treaty overlooks the disparity between Russia and U.S. tactical nuclear weapon stockpiles and hands Russia’s modernized long-range missile program the advantage.

Nikita Khrushchev prophesied that one day Russia would “bury ” America. Obama’s liberal dream of a utopian world free of nuclear weaponry could turn into a nightmare for our country by way of annihilation, because 50 years after Khrushchev, Obama has provided gravediggers like Iran and North Korea a shovel.

Besides signing a treaty that could potentially cost millions of American lives, closer to home the Obama administration advised Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents to allow guns to go to Mexico where a fierce border war rages. Gangs, gunrunners and violent drug cartels aren’t privy to nuclear arsenals, so instead the administration armed the enemy with good old-fashioned firepower by walking guns “into the hands of criminals who … use them in Mexico and the United States.”

ATF Federal Senior Agent John Dodson, as well as other sources, revealed: “The gun walking strategy was approved all the way up to the Justice Department. The idea was to see where the guns ended up, build a big case and take down a cartel. And it was all kept secret from Mexico.”  Obama’s approbation on the deadly decision to supply guns to drug cartels resulted in the death of both ICE Special agent Jaime Zapata and Border agent Brian Terry, armed only with beanbag rounds in a riot gun.

Barack must believe, as do the ATF agents videotaping Mexican cartels loading arms into trucks at Arizona gun shops apparently, that “If you’re going to make an omelet, you’ve got to break some eggs,” and if the egg happens to be a third of North America or a couple of brave Border patrol agents, oh well.  Agent Dodson said Brian Terry was gunned down with a “Fast and Furious gun,” which was found at the murder scene along with “two assault rifles the ATF let go nearly a year before.”

According to Dodson, giving murderers the means to prevail “never did take down a drug cartel.” Yet “thousands … [of] weapons are still out there” and Dodson predicts a rogue arsenal will be “claiming victims on both sides of the border for years to come.”

Obama’s logic is insanely similar on both the nuclear disarmament and Mexican armament situations: Hand the advantage to America’s enemies, disarm the most powerful nation in the world and furnish our nation’s adversaries with opportunities to acquire the artillery to use against us.

Security concerns are greater than ever, and terrorists and drug cartels are forever looking for creative ways to smuggle drugs, weapons of mass destruction, and themselves into the United States.  That explains why it had to be Obama’s twisted logic that recently approved of a delivery system allowing loaded 18-wheelers, driven by Mexican truckers, unlimited access to American roads.

Minimally inspected Mexican long-haul rigs fitted with containers trucking through America adds texture to Obama’s nuclear disarmament fantasy, which is destined to fail, as is the Justice Department’s lame attempt to take drug cartels down by providing gangs with AK-47s while Americans stationed on the border are forbidden to carry guns.

If common sense demands a logical policy decision, Barack Obama chooses the opposite. The pattern is this: In a quest to attain an ideological goal, the President purposefully ties the nation’s hands behind its back, intentionally contributing to America’s weakened condition.  Whether at the treaty table or making policy decisions that affect everything from the American economy to a porous border, Obama seems willing to sacrifice lives and our way of life to promote a liberal ideology that looks increasingly as though its end goal includes the destruction of America.

Red Onion Rings Trump Red Spy Rings – American Thinker – June 30, 2010

Picture this: you find out your neighbor is wearing night goggles and spying through your window after dark.  What do you do?  Invite him over for a barbeque, give him a bear hug and tell him you’ll leave the venetian blinds open to provide the neighborly voyeur easier access to peer through your window.

That is exactly what Barack Obama did this week.  Apparently, Mr. Obama wasn’t all that bothered about a Russian spy ring, made up of eleven agents, attempting to gather and use intelligence against the United States of America. A Russian spy ring “infiltrating policymaking circles” and sending “secrets back to the Kremlin” wasn’t going to mess up the warm bond and growing amity between two regular guys just attempting to cultivate a budding friendship.

The courtship started when Obama signed a “major nuclear arms control agreement that reduced the nuclear stockpiles of both nations.” Heck, the duo even had hamburgers and fries in Ray’s Hell Burger just the other day. “They both had burgers, of course. And yes, they shared fries.”

Although Obama knew about FBI plans to bust the New York Russian spy ring for passing information about the U.S. government to Moscow, the President chose not to raise the subject at last week’s scheduled talks nor with the Russian leader over hamburgers.

Just a few days after Barry and Dmitry simultaneously dipped French fries into shared ketchup the alleged operation was busted.  Spy ring aside, how can you “bury lingering Cold War tensions” if you focus on the fact that a close buddy is furtively gathering intelligence to use against you and the nation you lead?

It would be better to ignore talk of fake passports and secret online networks and instead order and scarf down a “Let’s Get It On (We are All Sensitive Burgers With So Much To Give)” burger.

The FBI said it intercepted a message from SVR’s headquarters, Moscow Center, to two of the 10 defendants describing their main mission as “to search and develop ties in policymaking circles in US.” Intercepted messages showed they were asked to learn about a wide range of topics, including nuclear weapons, U.S. arms control positions, Iran, White House rumors, CIA leadership turnover, the last presidential election, Congress and the political parties.

White House spokesperson Robert Gibbs agreed with Obama’s decision to disregard the espionage controversy.  Gibbs said, “I do not believe [the spy issue] will affect the ‘reset’ of our relationship with Russia.” Exactly why should someone equipped with night vision goggles gazing through your bedroom window on Wednesday be excluded from attending your pool party on Saturday?

Phil Gordon, assistant secretary of state for European Affairs, claims “We’re moving towards a more trusting relationship. We’re beyond the Cold War; our relations absolutely demonstrate that.”  Except of course “vestiges of old attempts to use intelligence” apparently at work in the 11 recently arrested Cold War-style spies.

The U.S. Justice Department said the spies “received extensive training in coded communications, how to evade detection and how to pass messages to other agents.” The more pressing issue, however, is who voluntarily sacrificed the last French fry at Ray’s Hell Burger, Barry or Dmitry?

Modine Inspires Prague – American Thinker Blog – April 8, 2010

Originally posted at American Thinker Blog

Barack Obama should establish a position called Miracle Czar and recruit world peace maharini/Hollywood actor Matthew Modine for the job.   In Modine’s opinion America should take the time to sit with Osama bin Laden and lovingly ask the sensitive questions necessary to get the terrorist to soften up and “hear us.”

Modine believes in the miracle that enemies become malleable if someone earnestly reaches out, pulls up a chair, lends a sympathetic ear and asks insightful questions like, “…listen man, what is it that you’re so angry at me about that you’re willing to have people strap bombs to themselves, or get inside of airplanes and fly them into buildings?” Apparently Matt Mo thinks somebody, somewhere, needs to overlook bin Laden’s naughty behavior, shortcomings, and destructive temper tantrums and give the guy a second chance.

Inside Prague Castle, Barack Obama exercised the stuff of Modine-style miracles employing new and innovative methods to ensure global peace by signing a strategic nuclear disarmament treaty with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. “Obama hailed the agreement, as “an important milestone.” And Medvedev called the treaty “a truly historic event.”

The only thing the event exhibited was the truly historic level of Obama’s foolhardiness. Why would a prevaricator like Obama, who wouldn’t recognize the truth if he tripped over it, trust anyone’s word? Let alone a Russian President?  And then, in good faith, proceed to cut strategic nuclear arsenals deployed by the U.S. and Russia by 30 percent?

Truth teller Dmitry crossed his fingers and promised — and naïve liar Barry believed him?  Obama, expressed collegial belief that “Together, we have stopped the drift, and proven the benefits of cooperation. Today is an important milestone … for U.S.-Russia relations.” Such collaborative language likely swelled Matthew Modine with hope for global harmony.

Medvedev shared the treaty “opens[s] a new page” in Russian-American relations. True!  Thanks to Barry, the United States is on an incremental fast track to becoming a minor world power. Which, when compared with years of American military dominance, is definitely “a new [age] page.”

Dmitry said “What matters most is this is a win-win situation. No one stands to lose from this agreement… Both parties have won.”  Win-win for sure—a win for Russia, a win for China, a couple of win-wins for North Korea and Iran and most definitely a win-win for rogue dictators salivating over the potential to acquire nuclear weapons.

After willingly laying down a third of the nation’s ability to defend itself, tough talking President Obama addressed Iran saying, “We are working together at the United Nations Security Council to pass strong sanctions on Iran and we will not tolerate actions that flout the NPT.” We won’t tolerate what? Iran will get what… time out, no dessert, and X-Box restriction?

Shockingly, Medvedev turned back the “new page” three seconds after signing the treaty by publicly opposing Obama.  Dmitry, “reject[ed] a total embargo of Iran, saying it would cause a “huge shock for the whole society and the whole population.” If given a chance to input Matthew Modine would likely say that when it comes to quelling Iran’s ire, the miracle of accepting interaction holds potential for even wild and crazy dictators like Mahmoud Ahmadenjad.

The “historic” strategic nuclear disarmament treaty needs 67 votes in the Senate to become ratified, which means eight loath Republicans will have to endorse it. Obama may need to send Matthew over to the Senate to sit down and reason pesky Republicans into submission.  Who better to convince them that in Barack’s Obamerica unconditional love and understanding, not military might, ultimately holds the key to Modine-inspired worldwide peace?
