What the heck is going on in the White House?
Hey, its all a joke, literally!

You cant make stuff like this up...this is not The Onion.



Minutes after issuing a stern warning to Russia and saying there will be
a price to pay if it interferes militarily in Ukraine,
President Obama headed to a “happy hour” .....

An audience member then asked the president to
“tell us about your plans for nuclear war with Russia.”

“What the heck are you talking about?” Mr. Obama said to
laughter and applause. “No, no, don’t worry about it.
We’re OK. Have a seat. I don’t know anything about that plan.
I don’t know what you’ve been reading.
Let me return to what I was talking about.
See, he thought happy hour started earlier.”

Makes me wonder if Obama and Putin are on the same side.

They do have a lot in common.

The two of them successfully kept the Syrian war going unchecked and managed to keep the U.N. involvement to a minimum.

Wow, this is something like Shakespeare meets Idiocracy. You can make up stuff like this, it sad that it's reality. Too many layers and piles of bureaucracy have been swept under the rug or stacked up for so long it's really only a matter of time before some new distraction has to wave its flag

Obama probably called Putin and said he was going to have to say something. That was probably after they discussed Putin invading and agreed that would hurt Russia's currency and economy and be messy. Better just mobilize 3 times as many troops as they did for the Olympics to keep the threat of terrorists out. Then Obama will make a statement and go party. Meanwhile all the doomsday people start wondering when WWIII will start.

Me too. The whole Snowden-scenario is also suspicious in this regard.

Here here!

I did not mean to open a can of worms, though it seems
sometimes nothing drives the point home like the truth.

This would contradict Obama's response.

I would say technically, they are on the same side; the side of evil.

But practically speaking, I doubt they are working together, especially since our puppet president Obama doesnt really control anything himself. Not sure who he takes orders from (probably a group rather than an individual), but its clear he doesnt actually do the thinking about anything; hes just the "pretty face" for the cameras, while the brains stay in the shadows.

Putin on the other hand seems like the real deal, in that he actually makes decisions and is in control, as a real leader should be ("real" as in not a puppet leader). Putin and Obama wouldnt be working together, because they are on different levels in reality; only on the "global stage" (how apt a name) are they equal, and then only in title.

So IMO its not even Putin vs Obama, its Putin vs Obamas handlers.

Obama is just there to take the flak when things go wrong for the decision makers in the shadows, like a good patsy.

But despite almost surely not being a "good" person, you have to give credit where its due. Putin is front and center while also calling the shots, which takes some guts in this day and age, while our so called "leader" is just a front for nameless, faceless shadows.

I cannot morally cheer for one or the other, but I do have respect for the person who isnt afraid to be seen in the light for what they are.

Its possible, at this point to think these things.
Very sad moment in time...

Sarah Palin was right, she predicted this.

Color me stupid, but I don't see what all the fuss is about.

He makes the speech about Russia, which I do not agree with the position he has taken, but then he goes to this fundraiser and cracks some jokes at the expense of a heckler. So what?

What am I missing?

Putin is doing everything to stop a world war and obama and the corporates are all out trying to make one.

The funny thing is that average Russian believes that Putin is controlled from US. So both of them (with Obama) are puppets.

Wasn't Sarah Palin mocked back in 08" when she suggested that Russia would pull this crap if BO was elected? I mean she did have great "view" of the place right?

Putin / Russia has big corporate interests also.

Look up " Gazprom " for one.

Gazprom is Russia's corporate natural gas company.

They supply Europe.

Ukraine has many pipelines from Russia.

Also, the "war" in Syria is mostly about stopping natural gas pipelines to Europe from the Middle East and Iran.

Gazprom stands to lose big business if those pipelines ever get built.

I’m with sheepslayer on this one. I mean, really, what’s the BFD?

Would it have made anyone here happier had the president gone to the fundraiser and announced, “We’re on the verge of mutual thermonuclear annihilation. Don’t worry though, folks, I’ve got my finger on the button, and believe me, I’ll use it. I’m sure we’ll work it out somehow or other, though. We’ve just got to...”.

I’d hate to be Obama. He gets slammed no matter what he says or does. I’m sure Palin would have made a much better president, considering her firm grasp of the issues (cough, cough...).

It kills me how we “Americans” have so little respect for our own president, cringe at the thought of losing any of our prescious freedoms, all the while singing the praises of an ex Lieutenant Colonel in the KGB. Seems kinda convoluted to me...
