    If George Bush or say Romney was in the White House and said it was cool, they wouldn't be up in arms about it. These people hate Obama, nothing more, and this is classic partisan hypocrisy.

    And so is the US governments accusations that Putin is violating international law. There has to be some red faces!!

    A very great point you just made, btw.

    It seems the Right has contracted the "man crush" on Putin that Bush had when he "Saw into his soul". LOL They should get a room.
