I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
Obama could rescue people like Arbo from a burning building and he'd still find a way to bitch about it.
This case is especially hilarious as you pointed out because.
He cancels meeting with Putin - "What a cry baby, he didn't get his way.
He meets with Putin - "I can't believe he'd meet with a foreign head of state harbouring a traitor to the nation. Just shows He's got no back bone".
Now THAT'S a pathetic cry baby.
International tit-for -tats:
1) TIT - US puts certain Russian citizens on a blacklist TAT: Russia suspends adoptions by Americans
2) TIT- Russia gives asylum to Snowden. TAT: US cancels summit meeting.
Obama has always been a whining little bitch, as another poster said, like a kid with a chip on his shoulder. There are loads of examples of such behavior throughout his presidency.
But to slam the door shut on your stupidity and false fantasy of what I might have said had he had the meeting... Snowden has done the citizens of the US and the world a great favor in putting out stuff our government has been desperately trying to hide.
Maybe I'm just being obtuse but it seems to me you guys agree and yet you argue with each other.
Obama is being childish because he is in a no-win situation with Snowden. Obama chose to try to keep a secret that thousands of people knew about. Then one of those thousands opened his mouth and embarrassed Secret Keeper In Chief.
Instead of just letting life go on, apologizing and letting Snowden quietly disappear, Obama decides to stir the pot some more.
Hopefully our "great Al Qaeda threat" will distract everyone
