    Is Obama afraid of Putin?

    Sadly I believe he is and Putin knows it. I don't believe it would pull this crap if GWB was still president........Say what you want about President Bush. He had the respect of the European nations........Obama does not have that respect and unless things change we could be in another Cod War situation.

    President Bush had 4700 of our troops needlessly killed because he was afraid of a paper tiger. Saddam_Hussein‎

    Yeah, Putin wouldn't pull anything when Bush was president. Yanno, except for that whole 2008 invasion of Georgia, the botched theater hostage crisis of 2002, and other assorted bullcrap with Chechnya.

    Most of the European leaders strongly disliked Bush. Talk about revisionist history.

    You think the Cold War was all about "respect"?

    Putin literally invaded and occupied about a quarter of a foreign country when Bush was President, he was "pulling this crap" well before Obama was President.

    And I wouldn't worry about the Cod War, we got those boys from Deadliest Catch on our side.

    Well last August during the Putin-Obama staredown over Syria, Obama blinked.

    Putin has little respect for Obama. Obama is a pantywaist when it comes to foreign affairs.

    Putin held G.W. Bush in awe. But I'm sure Condoleezza Rice gave Bush some pointers how to deal with KGB thugs.

    Obama got Syria to dismantle its chemical weapons without firing a shot. Your little narrative simply doesn't square up with reality.
