Think Putin will want to say something back to Obama now. Anyone else besides Obama think Putin is a Slouchy bored Kid that was always sitting in the back of the class?

    One thing is for certain.....Obama and Kerry sure do like to talk a lot without saying much of anything concerning this alleged mixed success that the article started talking about. Yeah we can agree that we will be disagreeing and all that. Not much of a success, really!

    Obama cites 'mixed success' in dealing with Putin.....



    President Barack Obama says he's had mixed success in persuading Russian President Vladimir Putin to think "forward as opposed to backward" on a variety of issues and is reassessing the U.S.-Russia relationship.

    While senior officials from the two countries met at the State Department, Obama told reporters at a news conference Friday that Putin's return to the Kremlin last year had brought about "more rhetoric on the Russian side that was anti-American, that played into some of the old stereotypes about the Cold War contest between the United States and Russia."

    "I've encouraged Mr. Putin to think forward as opposed to backward on those issues, with mixed success," he said.

    Obama told reporters that he decided not to attend a summit with Putin planned next month for Moscow because "Russia has not moved" on a range of issues where the U.S. would like to see progress. He said his unhappiness with Russia granting temporary asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden was one reason, but not the only one, for his decision.

    "I think the latest episode is just one more in a number of emerging differences that we've seen over the last several months around Syria, around human rights issues where, you know, it is probably appropriate for us to take a pause, reassess where it is that Russia's going, what our core interests are, and calibrate the relationship so that we're doing things that are good for the United States and, hopefully, good for Russia," Obama said.....snip~

    Mixed success.
    Putin was successful, Obama was a failure. That's mixed success.

    Putin was successful in the poisoning death of Alexander Litvinenko. How was he in Afghanistan?
    Is Russia careening towards irreverence?

    Dunno How Obama thinks he has had any success. What that their talks have been constructive but short and silent? I was waiting for when Putin woke up and heard the news himself.



    Course we see what Putin said to Obama with Hillary the last time they were all together.

    Again, show me what me SPECIFIC views are that make me a lib. What you are is a flat out liar and dishonest Con. But then I shouldn't expect anything different from a CON.

    Everywhere I turn you're slamming R's, and supporting D's... you even vigorously defended Felonious Bill Clinton.

    Only a Kool-Aid sucking lefty could bring themselves to defend someone that perjured themselves, got off light... with a fine and being disbarred, and then use in that defense... "if he hadn't been caught lying..." (facepalm)

    You covered all the territory a kook Leftist would.

    But you're no Lib... ROTFLOL.
    The Clintons are what happens...
    when you have NO MORAL COMPASS.

    Possibly, but your post is careening towards irrelevance. The subject was Snowden, Russia giving him asylum, and Obama going off to pout over it.

    Not Alexander Litvinenko or the old Soviet Union (now defunct) and it's failure preceding our own failure in Afganistan.

    A brilliant rejoinder! How do the Libs manage to keep coming up with these clever comebacks? Is there a School of Repartee somewhere that they attend?

    Let's see, NUMEROUS posts where I have slammed Obama, I'm not for Gun Control, Don't believe ANY bailouts should happen, don't like Obamacare, Didn't vote for Obama, and I don't think the rich should be taxed more. Yeah, I'm such a lib . I have slammed BOTH parties and believe the Dem/Rep duopoly is what is hurting America. The dishonesty coming from you is astounding.

    Now that you have been shown to be a LIAR, have a good eating of that crow you so deseperately deserve.

    Yes, Hogwarts. Rush Limbaugh was a teacher there.
