    It's probably worse. Putin's playing the White House like a bad fiddle and will delay delay. How's Obama going to look attacking Syria with a peace offering on the table from Russia that we don't use because it's taking too long? No way everyone calls a time out so some international group can go in and secure, count, stack and ship those chem weapons out of there. This is a really bad mistake by Obama and Putin I think will make us look like idiots on this one.

He can't save face that way internationally or domestically. He's going to have to either run this Russian plan through the UN and put UN troops with Russian troops on the ground to get those chems.

    But then again, is that something Assad would allow? I don't think so especially not when around him he's still in a seemingly protracted civil war. This sounds good on paper but very difficult to pull off.
    Are you kidding? Obama showed he's a real leader, he told Putin at the G20 he isn't backing down. OBAMA IS THE REASON FOR THE RUSSIAN PLAN!!!

    Our dummy-in-chief makes us look weaker and weaker as he is laughed at on the world stage. I think the next time he meets Putin, he should bow before him like he did with the arabs. Putin has earned it. He should probably kiss his ring, too.

    That is absolutely hysterical! How stupid do they think that the American people are? I guess there are always a large amount of the low information voter that will just eat this right up. It's like Pee Wee Herman falling off his bike and getting up and saying "I meant to do that!"

    Very very... especially if the MSM repeats it ad nauseum for reinforcement.

    You'll be needing a new one, then. Gubmint seems to be overflowing with 'em, so you can probably get a used one cheap.

    Obama supporters can always look at the bright side

    Obama bending over for Putin signals a new era of LGBT relations between The United States and Russia
