How many American children went to bed hungry Tuesday night while Obama was Putin a happy face spin on the debacle that is his presidency?

Obama is a Mental Midget on the Worlds stage and is no match to rogues like Vladimir Putin. Everyone knows it and Vlad has him bracketed as such; and it ain't basketball we're playing either.

the rethugligan blogger freedom/whistler has been kicked off before a couple of times. so, comments as uneducated as he just made are part of his life. He and rushslide should have been booted long ago. Oh, that is right, rushslide has been booted a couple of times already... rethuglicans.

And before you say, "he got Bin Laden", he didn't build that, he used it. It was the Seals. He just gave the order.

Wow, missy, you and whistler really live in a dream world. Sometime you should really work on facts because you both lack them. Oh, and that hatred thingy, whistler, you and rushslide own that. Along with plenty of insanity.

So whatever the charge against President Obama, his apologists bring out the usual replies:

"fair and balanced editorial"

"what would rethuglicans (nice word that) do?"

"it's false, all false, because I said so"

"it's treason not to support this president"

"you'll all get kicked off soon"

Hoo boy. I'm waiting to see if sanctions will do anything substantial. I want to hope for the best, but the Syria thing seems to have emboldened Putin. He's pushing the envelope big time, isn't he?

Sec. of State Kerry: "You just don't in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pre-text."

Uh, perhaps Putin didn't get that memo. Like I said, I'm waiting to see if sanctions will do anything substantial. Our country's interests are at stake with the president's move.

Rooting for something...

You Centerfield call all the time. You have shown hatred to Republican Presidents. No matter if it was a white man or white woman running. You have lied, and I mean your party, conspiracy theories. And then you blow it up big time. No one cares Obama is half black and white. He just is not doing a very good job, bottom line.

No Ha ha, it did not move. Taking the computer in tomorrow to clear out your bug's. I didn't say Bush was my hero, but I know Obama is not that man. You nut jobs trash women all the time. I don't care about your garbage. You trash Women, White People, and Religion. Get over yourself.

By the way, Haha. How did Bush exactly all by himself, destroy America? Didn't Hilary vote for those wars? At least he actually took the information for a vote. Obama has a Phone and a Pen. Since when has that been the American way?

"There r more sanctions 2 come."

Yes, I believe you're right. The best is yet to come.

Some anonymous sources in the State Department have leaked a plan to attack Vlad's Facebook page. These sources indicate that John Kerry plans to personally oversee this operation.

From what I understand, the whole exercise has been expertly timed to coincide with simultaneous attacks on his YouTube channel. Reportedly, the CIA already controls it, and is waiting on the POTUS all-clear to post a series "Hitler Reacts" videos related to the situation in Crimea.

Somebody's gonna get pwned!

Meanwhile, other sources have indicated that President Obama has assembled his best generals in the war-room, and they are, at this very moment, discussing plans to call in special ops teams to carry out the following operations:

1) Smear Vaseline on Vlad's bathroom floor while he is in the shower. 2) Clone Vlad's personal cell phone, and use the clone to call in fake, yet humorous names of suspected hijackers on the missing Malaysia Airlines to the Washington Bureau of RT News. 3) Use the same cloned phone to order 50 Meatlover's pizzas to the Moscow chapter of PETA. 4) Subscribe, on Vlad's behalf, to 20 *****graphic magazines of a homosexual nature and have them sent to his office at the Kremlin. 5) Drop more 25,000 "My other car was run over by a tank" bumper stickers from a stealth bomber flying 3 low passes over Crimea.

"You Centerfield call all the time." Missy. First of all, I want everyone to know that I did not call you, ever. Now, as to the rest of the non-sensical blogs (3), we have more opinion (skewed) but no facts! Tell me what Presidents or candidates the Republicans have put up or will put up who deserve supportive comments? Bush II, Romney, Cruz, etc, etc. Oh, and by the way, I did vote for Bush I. He was an extremely intelligent President and it is unfortunate he had such a dolt for a son. Oh, and the guru of the Republicans, Reagan, was terrible on economics and provided the beginning of the demise of the Republican party. Of course, the continuation of the Reagan policy of economics has led to the economic calamities put forth by the Republicans led by Bush II.

"Since I have researched the Communist Party Of America's platform, and found it to be the agenda of my Democrat Party"

You're really stuck on that Jack A McCarthy, aren't you?

Are you ready to move forword on my Randian Ideology theory from those leaders in the Republican Party?

I have many examples for you and will be certain to preview them come Nov 2014.....

"President Obama has restored dignity and integrity to the Oval office."

Isn't there a hole in the sand somewhere that begs for your head's attention?

Yeah, like what does this stupid poll have to with dignity and integrity?

So the sole measure of dignity and integrity in the oval office is a poll wherein respondents from around the world indicate how much they like him?

You might as well be using Facebook likes... that would be just as credible as this farce you've just presented.
