Obama, the judge of weakness

Obama’s standard response to our foes’ aggressive attacks on its neighbors, or throwing their weight around, is….. wait, ready for it….they are operating “out of weakness.”

Now that Russia has sent it’s military and air force into Syria to help Assad, Obama and the administration claim Russia acted out of weakness.

“Mr Putin had to go into Syria not out of strength but out of weakness, because his client, Mr Assad, was crumbling and it was insufficient for him simply to send them arms and money. Now he’s got to put in his own planes and pilots. Iran and Assad make up Putin’s coalition at the moment. The rest of the world makes up ours. So, these are hard challenges, they are ones we are going to continue to pursue.” He predicts Russia will get into a quagmire.

The line gets as old and tired as any of Obama’s tactics do. But its the standard line whenever he is challenged that the opponent is operating out of weakness. There could be an incoming nuclear warhead and he’d declare the source is weakness. Hopefully we won’t have that proved. At least now every enemy and ally of ours knows what the verbal response will be.

Putin invaded Crimea, Obama said he was acting out of weakness. Russia bullies its neighbors and Obama defines it as weakness. Once in a while, Obama could try a new script. Change it up a bit at least.

And when Romney suggested Russia is still a threat and a foe, Obama said the 80’s called and wants their foreign policy back. But Obama’s foreign policy, if you can call it one, is making such great strides isn’t it? Right after Putin annexed Crimea he set his sights on Ukraine. Evidently feeling weaker than ever, he injected Russia there.

Sure desperate people do terrible things. But opportunists are willing and ready to seize an advantage at the proper moment, for maximum gain. That someone gives and creates those opportunities for them is an egregious error.

In March 2014, Kerry ran out to deliver the talking point on ABC’s Face the Nation:

“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country…. That’s not the act of somebody who’s strong.“ Kerry said Putin was acting out of “weakness” and “desperation.”

Obama claimed Putin and Russia was “acting out of weakness, not out of strength,” regarding their annexing of Crimea. Countries usually invade other countries when they feel weak. So the script, regardless what Putin does, is to say he’s operating out of weakness. Obama can’t change their narrative.

Now Obama is flexing his mouthpiece, again. Josh Earnest lectured:
“Russia is not flexing its muscles when it comes to Syria, but it’s propping up an investment about to go south.”

Obama said on Putin’s intervention in Syria:

“I want Russia to be successful. This is not a contest between the United States and Russia. It is in our interests for Russia to be a responsible actor on the world stage that can share burdens with us … because the problems we have are big.”

Just once, I wish Obama wanted us to be successful. But that could make us appear exceptional, and we can’t have that.

    Barry says we’re over there to help overthrow Assad. Putin says Russia supports Assad. Then Barry says Russia acting out of weakness and will run into a quagmire. Then Barry says he wants Russia to be successful. Am I missing something here? Is Barry talking out of both sides of his ass again? Barry’s so weak he can’t even lie good.

    I don’t even know who Barry’s really pulling over this for anymore. He’s such a frigging wimpy ass dipshit. You’re right Bull that the absence of a clear foreign policy is not a foreign policy. It is clear Barry is scared to death of Putin. I bet when the big red phone rings at the WH Barry pisses all down his leg…

      Dave, you got that right: “Barry’s so weak he can’t even lie good.” I’m not sure he’s even trying to lie anymore. It’s just a natural reflex for the dark prince.

      When the red phone rings, Valerie jumps to answer it. Moscow probably has a copy of his classified records too. The bumbling moron better watch it they could spill the beans on him. But I’m pretty sure Valerie takes all those important calls. She’s probably better at holding her bladder too. I like how this happened right after Putin spoke to the pretender.

    He got something caught in Mom’s jeans zipper again. I not sure that they still made the way they were when mom wore jeans, in the back to zip up. Wherever though he caught a hemorrhoid in it is all he could have caught.

        Unit: I’d like to hope so but reality tells me he’s kept it secret so far, and nothing leaked. Then Jarrett will run that “Lie-Barry” like a commie vault. We ain’t knowing anything they don’t want us to know.

      Wow Pepp, not “politically viable in the present atmosphere”. And once again Obama is willing to do anything, say anything to fit his agenda. Hey if O’s records have been covered up as well as they have, how much effort is this? Not much.

      Sounds like something right in Obama’s wheel house. I also heard Putin bombed an ISIS place in Raqqa. Why couldn’t Barry hit it?

        WE can’t put anything beyond his lying, conniving POS. Barry can’t hit the side of a barn.

          No we can’t. And as soon as he came out right away we should know something would be wrong. He never waits for facts, but in this case get out ahead of the facts deliberately.

            Yeah he got out there quicker than a bunny. He’s usually so late. I’ll tell ya my stomach has been churning since I read that article. First I was so angry I was literally shaking. I’m still shaking but have calmed down somewhat. But to think what this POS did to us and 10 people died because of him. Despicable.

    Bull, he is the biggest hypocrite ever. Always lecturing us while he had blood on his hands is just so galling. I find him utterly despicable. I had myself so upset over this last night I was a raving lunatic. We’ve talked about how certain things can just send us over the edge. That’s where I was last night.

    I don’t often get that angry that I shake all over but I sure did last night. Things are just becoming unbearable with that man. I guess as the years of him roll by it’s just become so ungodly I can barely stand it much longer.

      And isn’t that what somebody in charge wants? Us to reach a breaking point so martial law can be called before the next election. Somehow I just have to wiggle into my personal mental and physical straight jacket and sit and wait it out. Something has to happen and make it all better.
