    Russia says it's pulling 17,000 troops from near Ukrainian border

    Yes you read it right, the right wings nightmare is happening in the Ukraine. Obama's sanctions are working and Russia is backing down. The sanctions along with the rapidly falling price of oil are threatening financial collapse in Russia.

    Moscow (CNN) -- Russian President Vladimir Putin has ordered 17,600 troops near the Ukrainian border to return to their bases, state-run media reported.
    The reason? The Russian troops' training exercises in the southern Rostov region have ended, according to the RIA Novosti news agency.
    But many did not believe such exercises were taking place. The troop buildup near the Ukrainian border has been widely interpreted as a threat to invade eastern Ukraine.

    So much for the Putinator's show of strength.

    Saw this coming, but I can't lie, Putin proved himself decently clever and made Obama look weak.

    I always knew Russia had met its match with Ukraine. Was saying they should stay the f out of it all the time.

    Now, to regain back Crimea!

    How is this a right wing nightmare? It's good news to me, although I'm not sure I'm a real "right-winger" even though I'm sure I am to you.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    If oil prices had stayed high, then the sanctions would not have had such an impact, and Putin probably wouldn't have blinked. This pull back has more to do with the drop in oil prices and their impact on the Russian economy than any sanction has done minus the drop.

    I think he's saying that what he mistakenly believes to be some form of success, and one that he amusingly appears to attribute to some skill on Obama's part, would come as an unpleasant surprise to his opponents.

    It is bad news for all fans of Putin which seems to be all the rage among the Right. They were gushing when he shot down that airliner and got away with it too.

    The Conservatives recent love affair with Russia's Vladimir Putin is a mysterious contagion from a fever swamp; an odd combination of My Funny Valentine and Jungle Fever, rebranded as To Russia, With Love. It's an odd reversal of the McCarthy era, sixty years later.

    Sarah Palin seems deeply enamored as she oozed on Fox, "People are looking at Putin as one who wrestles bears and drills for oil. They look at our president as one who wears mom jeans and equivocates and bloviates."

    Add Rudy Giuliani to Putin's fan club too: "In contrast to Obama, Putin is what you call a leader."

    Franklin Graham, son of respected pastor, Billy Graham, has a declaration of love for him also. He praises Putin and says he wishes our president was more like him.

    On and on, Breitbart gushing over Putin's "traditional values". Fox News producer Jack Hanick injected God into the Putin-love also; saying that God called on Russia to stand up for traditional values. Fox News' Ralph Peters gushed with praise for Russia who has a "real leader".

    According to the World Congress of Families, Putin doesn't threaten our national security but Obama does.

    You may want to do something about that raging hatred you have running through you. It can cause health problems, and wouldn't want anything bad to happen to you.
