I thought Obama would have more flexibility after the election.Putin
must be having a big laugh.
The irony here is that Russia is protecting our freedom... our right to know
what our government is doing.
Re: DavidYes we have 3 1/2 years left, but a second term President
always has scandle and diminishing power. The important thing will be the
upcoming mid-term election. Hopefully, by that time, the American people will
see that Obamas ways are not working, and will vote accordingly, like they did
in 2010. In 2006 Bush lost the Congress and he was as lame duck as a President
can get for his last 2 years. Maybe history will repeat itself in 2014. And
Obama can ride off into the sunset in a golf cart.
you mean BO's attitude of groveling before putin is not paying of?? imagine
It's about time someone is looking out for the best interest of the
people's privacy--too bad it needs to be another country. Hopefully they
can help protect us from ourselves until we get a REAL government who works FOR
the people. After all, we've been duped through two
elections... what's up with that?
That's Putin it to us.
Obama is 5 steps behind the rest of the world with regards to strategy. Look at
his Middle East policy, Snowden, and anything else international. Obama is
looking foolish.And we have 3 1/2 years left of his presidency...Time moves so slowly at times.
That's Putin it to Obama.
Russia will use him as a bargaining chip in other world events like Syria. The
US is fast losing leadership in the world and 'enterprising' countries
like Russia are capitalizing on us. US foreign policy is in as sad a state of
affairs as our domestic policy is.
@mountain man"our past history of alleged racism,
slavery?"Trying to rewrite history again mountain man?
Imagine that. The US spies on Russia and then expects them to send back the
Don't be fooled into thinking this is a set back for Obama. This is exactly
what Obama and the liberals wanted to happen. For America to be put in its
place, taken down as a super power, our economy in chaos our international
influence diminished. Punishment and payback for our past history of alleged
racism, slavery, exploiting of natural resources, polluting the planet, and
efforts to build democratic nations abroad! Never mind that America has really
been the best influence for good and the hope of the world! Obama couldn't
be happier as he has succeeded in "fundamentally transforming America".
And remember, you people elected him, twice!
Obama's previous intended to be off-the-record statement that he would
"have more flexibility after the next election" with Russia doesn't
seem to be working out so well. Whatever flexibility he was referring to is not
being reciprocated by the Russians in any way, shape or form. Actually, not by
many other countries either, for that matter.Oh well. Most
American's can't complain, since they are the ones who put him back in
office for another 4 years. You get what you vote for, and sometimes you end up
having to pay the price for it. Such is the case now.
