    Assad just confirmed the Russian plan about chemical weapons.
    It seems like word of Putin has a bigger influence than Obama's one.

    It is an interesting read, filled with the standard half truths and appeals to raw emotion that is common in progressive politics. It's just funny seeing someone use it on Obama for a change.

    My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

    Wow, Putin lecturing Obama on American Exceptionalism when neither one of them understand the real definition of it.

    We are NOT exceptional because of our policies, or because we attempt to be a stabilizing force throughout the world.

    We are Exceptional because our inalienable rights and liberty guaranteed by God and not Government.

    Neither Obama nor Putin agree, I know, but regardless to hear the ex-KGB thug take the moral high ground or the perception of the moral high ground over a standing US President just shows what a incompetent clown we elected.

    Our adverseries have only ever respected strength, and now that Obama and Kerry have been exposed as bumbling amatuers people like Putin and Assad know they have free reign to continue their destruction.

    And while this is happeneing Iran's Centrifuges spin away.

    I don't have much hope for this Country, not when our Public Education system cranks out remedial Democrats who are easily manipulated.

    Re: A Plea for Caution From Russia

    Putin is pretty much saying the same thing the leftists in our country have been saying for years.

    But now many leftists are acting all a**hurt just because it's Putin saying the stuff instead of them.

    Just another example of how if a person supports Obama, they can't really be for or against anything. Because there is no telling what he will say or do next.

    What?!!! You mean that all the talk of Obama being just masterful in how HE single handedly divised this peaceful resolution of the escalation of events isn't true?

    Obama was pretty much able to say whatever came into his head when he was first a candidate because he had the MSM behind him and internationally he had already won the Nobel Peace Prize, as well as international support from those who didn't really follow politics all that much. His lies against Romney's history and character also served him well during the last campaign.

    But when Obama left the cocoon created buy the American MSM and his leftists apologists to take his act on the world stage it was soon recognized that he was unable, or had little interest, in putting America's interest first..

    We really don't know what he meant by "Vladimir" giving him more space until after the election nor how it might figure in to this latest debacle, and may not know for a decade or two, but that slip alone should have cost him the election.
