FLASHBACK: Vladimir Putin's tough guy act just a 'shtick' says Barack Obama
The Telegraph ^

Posted on 07/20/2014 9:37:21 AM PDT by TigerClaws

US President Barack Obama said on Thursday that Vladimir Putin's bored, tough guy act was just a 'shtick' designed to boost his domestic political image.

Obama and his Russian counterpart have become known for stilted photo ops during bilateral meetings at various global summits, in which they stare straight ahead and share little warmth or sympathetic body language.

I haven't hear it pointed out how wrong an assessment Obama made of his adversary.

Even the far-left SLATE admits Romney got it right and Obama got it wrong re Russia as a threat:

Not a fan of Putin but — who can blame him for not wanting to be touchy feely with the fruity Kenyan.

Tell that to Ukraine. I'm almost certain they will not agree.

I just read the Slate article. They even mentioned that Palin accurately predicted Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine. Just wow.

Yeah, well, the fact is Obama doesn't give a damn about anything but denigrating this nation and its legacy.

Obama hates the three Cs:

#1: True, classical CHRISTIANITY,

#2: The CONSTITUTION, and

#3: Free market CAPITALISM

Exactly - projecting himself onto Putin. I think pretty much everything we see from him is just a shtick to zero.

Just another example of Obama foolishly thinking that he is the smartest guy in the room, even though all evidence points to the opposite.

Hey, anybody, how do you pronounce Corpsman?

One of the inherent weaknesses in human nature is that people tend to ascribe their own virtues to others. Obama is a pretender who lacks the knowledge, skills and proven experience required to lead any large organization – let alone the world’s most powerful nation. As a pretender, Obama believes that other world leaders are also merely playing at their roles and stumbling along just like him. The potential for a catastrophic miscalculation is very real.

In cowboy parlance, “this Obama guy doesn’t ride for the brand...” So why pay any attention to what he says!

***************************

More importantly it seems, based on current events, Putin has gotten his assessment of the Coyote-in-Chief Obama RIGHT: weak, wuss, timid, coward, all big talk & self aggrandizement - no action.

Bath House Barry is a beta male that shows his soft underbelly to enemies of the US. The death toll is growing rapidly as our coke snorting “president” ignores the human toll.

Yeah...and Obama's acting like a goofy wimp is also a "shtick"

Obama went on to share that one of the tricks he learned in dealing with whites was that if you were “courteous and smiled and made no sudden moves” people were “more than satisfied” and “relieved” to find “such a pleasant surprise” in a “well-mannered young black man,” one who “didn’t seem angry all the time.”

Acting like a jackass doofus is Obama’s schtick. Or maybe that is the real thing.

Omama has spent so much time in fag bars and bath houses that he’s unable to recognize a tough guy when he sees one.

For Obama, a man plagued with a reprobate mind, to judge Putin, also a man plagued with a reprobate mind, is priceless. If, perchance, Putin is the leader of the north described in Ezekiel 38 and 39, then it’s even more ironic that Obama can’t discern the evil spirit that possesses Putin.

Putin has chunks of little girly-men like Barack Obama in his stool.

STFU, Momjeans.

Putin is eating 0bama’s lunch, which is harming our national interests. 0bama needs to be impeached no matter the outcome in the Senate.

I don’t know if Obama is homosexual, but he certainly is a faggot.

You expect Obama to be able to pick out someone cut of the same cloth?

Whenever something happens it is either Obama, Putin, or muzzies.

Pick one. Or all. LOL

"US politicians have a different style. We tend to smile once in a while," he added.

In Obama's case, at the weirdest times...
