In the current post cold-war conflict with Russia, it’s Putin over Obama, 5-1. This is what happens when you elect “President Cool.” He’s more at home filling out the brackets for March Madness on ESPN than he is standing up to a Russian dictator, or so it seems, because image is everything.
In the final debate of the presidential campaign, President Barack Obama sarcastically made fun of Romney making Romney out to be a novice who lacked understanding of complex world issues. Here is what Obama sneeringly and sarcastically said to Romney in the final debate:
“Gov. Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida. You said Russia … the 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years,” Obama said.
Obama, you’re so funny, so clever. Romney was right then, and you as you are so often were wrong and clueless.
I have a theory though, and I’ve heard it posited at a few other places, but here goes. I actually believe that Obama is in league with Putin. Obama is not putting up any opposition to Vladimir as he invades the Ukraine. Obama is a Marxist and he doesn’t believe that the U.S. is any better than Russia or Iran for that matter.
I suspect that the reason Obama is
NOT arming the Ukraine with weapons, and not restoring our missile defense system in Poland which he dismantled because we are now in the post-Cold War 21-first century where everyone plays “nice”, and not immediately giving the green light for oil and gas exploration to be expanded here in the U.S so we can fill the void in Europe’s energy needs if Russia cuts them off, is because Obama WANTS Putin to succeed. I believe that behind the scenes Obama has cut a deal with Putin and is helping Putin restore the old Soviet Union, and maybe even expand it further to include all of Germany in the next few months or years.
Remember when Obama made the off-handed remark caught on open mic, to the Russian President Dimitry Medvedev:
“This is my last election. After my election, I’ll have more flexibility” (referring to missile defense). Everything you see
Obama doing is the flexibility that he promised the Russians. He is so “flexible” that he’s willing to let them carve up Europe, just so that Communist Russia can once again inflict more pain and hardship on a greater segment of the world population.
We’re now seeing Obama carry out his promise to the Russians and showing them how flexible he can be. He’s bending over backwards to accommodate Putin, and I’m sure that somewhere down the road, Obama will be richly rewarded, as the good Marxist that he is.
