Russians despise weak and incompetant fools.Billy
I think Russia lost all respect for us when Obama promised to help them after the election.
Compromise is seen as a weakness as well, it's one reason the RINO are so despised, they always compromise, deal from a point of weakness.If you hold all the cards in a deal, you'd be a fool to capitulate, yet what do RINO do?Then we have the Child in Chief bargaining from as if we are the weak ones.Awwww the days of Carter's stupidity and weakness is looking better and better everyday.
Kerry's resume:1) Weakness2) Arrogance3) Despises US militaryObama's response:Perfect!!!!Republican response:Yeah, that should be okay.
Yep. At least Carter was honestly stupid and weak........with Obama, it's intentional, as was his pick of Kerry.
On target. Carter is a patriot, but very naive as to reality. I keep hearing that Obama won't do some of things he is doing because of his legacy. These folks are totally wrong. He is not interested in a normal presidential legacy. His desired legacy is transforming this conutry to socialism or worse.
Russia’s foreign minister still hasn’t called Kerry backAs you head off for your Presidents' Day weekend, The Cable would just like to note that it's now been over 72 hours since Secretary of State John Kerry reached out to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov -- without getting a call back. As The Cable reported earlier this week, Kerry reached out to Lavrov after North Korea detonated a nuclear bomb on Feb. 11, as well as the foreign ministers of Japan, China, and South Korea. Lavrov, who has been traveling in Africa, is the only foreign minister who didn't answer or return Kerry's call. The State Department is trying very hard not to seem upset about the perceived snub."Well, first of all, let me say that we are relaxed. The secretary is relaxed about this," outgoing State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Thursday. "From our perspective, the secretary would like to talk to him. It's up to him whether he wants to take that opportunity."Today, reporters at the State Department briefing were flabbergasted that it is taking this long for the Russian leader to respond."Our daily question about Mr. Lavrov: Has he returned the phone call? Have you found him? Is he missing in action?" one reporter asked."They have not yet connected by phone," Nuland said."I mean, this is getting kind of ridiculous, isn't it?" another reporter asked her."Look, as we said at that time, as I've been saying all week, we're making it clear that we would like to talk if they want to. If they are too busy or otherwise engaged, the offer stands, and we'll continue to do other diplomacy," she responded. http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2013/02/15/russia_sn_foreign_minister_still_hasn_t_called_kerry_backFor all of Bush's faults at least we were taken seriously...
