    I didn't say it was yours. In fact, there is a link below that quote implying that the quote is from Wikipedia.

    Continue to ignore the daily barrage against the President of the USA. It continues to be initiated by the (not-quite) right-wing machine in the media and in Congress. I've lost count of how many f right-wings there are, trying to destroy this Presidency, their words.

    Is this the same al Qaeda as in 2001? Or are they missing over three dozen leaders? Don't start giving Obama any credit now. That would change your MO.

    Re: Does Putin Have a Point in his Op-Ed?

    Putin is in his best position on his career regarding foreign relationship.

    He made himself to look more diplomatic than Obama.
    While, no one used to offer a peace plan, he came up throwing it in table and achieved it as his own victory.

    To the world, it look like Putin has no fear of Obama, he can stand his warships in front of US warships.
    He can irritate Obama at any moment and push him to call him "kid", which is far away from the diplomatic speech of a US president speech. Yea, I used to hear child speech from Russians too, but that's normal to me because they are Russians. That's how they talk.
    He can push Obama to ask for congress vote (since I doubt Obama would go for an attack without having at least a congress authorization, considering that Russian warships are there and dancing). And now seems like he is pushing Obama back.
    Obama now in 2 bad situations.
    If US would not attack the Syria, it will definitely look like the Russia was right when appealing to US and in every statement they gave about Syria. And yes, like it or not, after many decades, Russia may look stronger than US on "TV".
    If Obama choose to attack (no matter what) he will look more bad to the rest of world, even to its allies. Because an offer is in table and it's so no sense to go and throw missiles there now.


    Obama should have tried all the chances which are deniable, in order to start an attack.
    UN . Yes it look no sense since Russia and China would veto, but at least he should have tried to get an authorization. Ignoring UN isn't a good idea and specially EU does not like it.
    The offer that Russians made, would have come from Obama. I am sure that Russia and Syria would have deny it on that case.
    After trying all possible chances, he would have start to ask for the support of its allies.

    Obama started to seek for allies support at early, indeed very early. He started from the last point.
    British parliament was held so fast, no one knew what was going about, what they are going to do there. There was no plan for no one. And British couldn't take that stupid risk. Indeed they voted well and many applause them.

    ___________________________
    Bush was bad, but Putin couldn't dare to play with him, and he could have never put him as in Obama's situation.
    If Putin is getting credits on each statement/speech of his, it is not because suddenly he become wiser.
    Simple as many US believe, it is because Obama is an easy player.
    His next steps are so predictable by Putin.

    That is not how multi-quotes work on DP.

    Well, they are making better statements that Obama does deserve his position.
    No one can make better statements to prove the otherwise.

    If politicians are trying to destroy the president, sure the people would save him. In all history, on each presidential country, the president was always supported in bad moments.
    Looks like Obama does not have the support of the people anymore. And honestly, he does not to make proper speeches to the people imo. I was too curious to hear Bush talking. He was bad, maybe more than Obama, but was a good actor on speeches.
    With Obama, it looks like I know what he is going to say, so I don't even bother to watch him, because his words seems to be the same on each speech. He is not a good actor.

    Re: Does Putin Have a Point in his Op-Ed?

    I so blame the western media for all this. They got privatized and were dumbing down the nation while Putin was increasing his through RT. The task to air only what was considered newsworthy to the western laypeople decreased the quality of content of the media as well as it ghettoed the topics mostly to mention issues that occur in USA.

    Western media got lazy, RT got stronger, these are the results! Worse may happen if things do not change!

    What if all this was done so as to show the minorities in USA that leading a country is difficult?

    Obama used to lie many times to US people.
    Lately with the Red Line. He removed any responsibility of it, and throwing it to the international and the people. He showed himself as weak, not the media.
    A true leader, never back his words, no matter what.
