    Give it up. The global supremacy of the USA President exists mostly in your dreams.
    Reagan did kick ass in Grenada, though.
    You are referring to Soviet satellite states. This is different-the Soviet union is no more and Russia while the big boy on its block, is no USSR.

    Korea, Vietnam, Tibet, Georgia, Bosnia? Soviet satellites?
    The US as a global power has always been a matter of potential, never a matter of fact.

    Yes, or at least communist satellite states.

    The EU is run by right-wingers?

    Its amazing how slow the left is in learning these lessons that are demonstrated over and over again.
    Ahh, so what action do you think we should take? Attack Russia?

    The US should lead the opposition to this act of war (yes, invading a sovereign nation and its territorial integrity is considered an act of war) with economic and diplomatic sanctions against Russia. Get everyone on record with who they support, including the UN, EU, and Nato to investigate any situation threatening international peace; recommend procedures for peaceful resolution of a dispute; call upon other member nations to completely or partially interrupt economic relations as well as sea, air, postal, and radio communications, or to sever diplomatic relations; and enforce its decisions.

    Let Russia come across as the brutish invaders and reap the repercussions, they are the ones who have sent militias across the border. Basically, the US needs to lead the world into making it more expensive (politically or otherwise) to stay in Ukraine. France, the UK, and the US will stand together, but how China responds will also be key.

    The point here, is that one nation can not invade another, and there are going to be those who do something about it-and those that dont. We are at a distinct disadvantage with a weak president who not only advertises his unwillingness to use force but also has squandered his political capital at home and abroad. An actual leader wouldn't even be in this mess=Obama's foreign policy has been appallingly bad.

    Yet GOP Senators and House members sent out mixed signals all weekend, further undercutting Mr. Obama's position, as they did with Syria.
    Rep. Rogers wants to take the Navy off the table and not send them to the Black Sea.
    Sen. Rubio wants air strikes off the table.
    Putin sees ten GOP Chiefs and one little Obama Indian with GOP undermining .

    You are trying to spin this into a problem for the GOP? Seriously thats rich. Obama's at the wheel-one president at a time and all that-own it.

    Im betting Obama wishes he hadn't stabbed Poland in the back right about now, he cancelled the missile shield that was to be built because of Russia-but thats what weak leaders do. YOU, should do some reading.
