    Russia Brushes Off Obama: No 'haggling'

    RUSSIA BRUSHES OFF OBAMA: NO 'HAGGLING'
    Tue Mar 03 2009 09:15:17 ET

    Russian President Dmitri Medvedev on Tuesday showed willingness to discuss the US-planned missile defense system opposed by Moscow, but without 'haggling' linking it to Iran.

    Medvedev was commenting during a visit to Spain on an alleged offer by US President Barack Obama to halt the defense system if Iran could be convinced to give up nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles.

    Speaking at a joint press conference with Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero in Madrid, Medvedev welcomed the 'positive signals' coming from the Obama administration with which he hoped to reach 'agreements.'

    'Haggling,' however, was not 'productive,' Medvedev said.

    There is Obama-land, where everyone is reasonable and all you have to do is give the right incentive and everyone is happy.

    Then there is the real world, where other leaders see Obama as weak, and dismiss him as such. Obama's weakness is on display for the world, and we're gonna pay for it.

    This reminds me of the weak-kneed Chamberlin meeting with Hitler when he returned to England telling his nation there would be no war between Germany and Great Britain. Putin would eat Obanana up and spit him out like the skinny little twit that he is.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Are you comparing Chamberlin to Obama and Hitler to Putin?

    Obama will play nicely for a few more months, then I believe he will start the back-hand bidding at $20

    How does a "secret letter" from our prez to mother Russia become public after only a few days?

    So he's getting backhanded for free now and will start charging later? O rpay to get backhanded.

    Obama couldn't stand up to the trade minister from southern Uganda, let alone handle the big league players. As is obvious from this big "test" of his. He got bitch slapped by Russia.

    Because the Russians laughed so hard at it they thought it was a joke at first.

    1) It was 27 days ago.
    2) By "secret" now-a-days we typically have two definitions. Firstly, secret in the sense that it's purpose is to draw suspicion, to entice, or to promote interest. Secondly, secret as in you'll never see this because it either A) doesn't exist B) we made it up or C) we've currently deleted it from our inbox.
    I think this was the first one. Transparency yay

    Why does everyone have to learn the hard way that Russians are super bad-ass negotiators?

    He already got bitch slapped from Iran as well.



    Welcome back Carter.
    You should try to remember, ideas are conveyed by researching information, vetting sources, and confirming said information. Not by regurgitating talking points given to you by your "news" station.

    This analogy is a HUGE stretch. Obama will be viewed as another weak kneed pushover like Carter was, but suggesting that this is of the same import as the Chamberlain-Hitler meetings is demeaning one of the most tragic and important moments in World history.

    That event was the epitome of the failure of appeasement towards a dictator who for all intents and purposes clearly mapped out his agenda and was not taken seriously because the world was wallowing in denial.
