Skip to comments.Troubled Past Aside, Obama Wants Putin As Ally
Posted on 05/22/2013 8:08:41 PM PDT by KMR
President Barack Obama wants Russia to be friends. Since he and former president Dmitry Medvedev, now the countrys Prime Minister, discussed a reset of relations, the Cold Wars Punch & Judy have been more like frenemies than friends.

Vlad Putin will eat little Barry’s lunch.
Are you kidding? Putin is exactly the ally he’s looking for. I mean, he told Putin on the open mike, how once the re-election is won, Obama is ready, willing and able to do Putin’s bidding.
I don’t anticipate a Barry and Vlad bromance will last forever. Perhaps, Putin is following the Machiavelli principle: “keep your friends close and keep your enemies closer.” Doesn’t Hillary live by this motto too?
Well, since he (fraudulently) won “his election”, he now has more flexibility regarding missile defense and friendship. Maybe they’ll have a beer summit, but I guess Putin would rather have vodka.
Bush should have cultivated a Russian cooperative agreement. I have thought he made a drastic mistake by ignoring Putin and Russia.
Now we have this hapless moron doing it.
Russia started talking to China because we essentially ignored it. We could have chummed it up, developed cooperative agreements, sent a little respect Russia’s way. We could have done it in a reasoned manner. Now we’ve got an idiot running this effort.
The Russian people don’t hate us. It’s their government that gets all tweaked. Russian’s should be our natural allies. Instead we allow them to search for ‘love’ somewhere else, in China. How stupid is that?
Russia, Europe, and North America should be natural allies. We share the same heritage. Our ancestors are closely entwined.
Russia isn’t a natural ally of China? It isn’t a natural ally of the the people in the Middle-East. It’s not a natural ally of the African Continent.
I know this looks somewhat racist, but ultimately the ties that bind are similarities. That’s not to say we don’t have other friends. That would be wrong, but we should secure relations with those like us so that we have strength.
To allow Russia to go off and team up with China against us, is very short-sighted and ultimately defeatist.
We could have been a better force for good in Russia, and it bothers me that Obama is now the source of warming ties. I say this, because the way Obama will do it, it will be a soiled effort.
There are times when I hang my head when I think of what could have been, and what will take place instead.
We really need better leaders on our side. We need folks who get it, and won’t rest until they have improved our lot in life. I’m not happy at all with our Republican Presidents since Reagan.
We could have, and should have done so much better.
But only one is a patriot...
Russia: Self Explanatory.
Sure, as long as 0 continues to be ‘flexible’ Vlad will be a real pal.
I'm not so sure about one of them.
***** “There’s no reason why the two can’t be good pals.After all,they share a lifelong contempt for the United States. “ *****
WINNER... Bump for Post of the Day
He could be useful ally to comrade obama when the United States of America rises against the obamination. It might at least provide a place of exile for him.
Putin already has a girlfriend.
