"....Obama is seen as weak, and that is just a fact on the world stage that he will never be able to change...."

My take is that that’s just a calculated mislabeling that Republicans have never been able to sell. Nor have they been able to stop trying. It’s not that they just don’t get it. It’s that they haven’t much else in the way of a strategy on which to pin their political hopes.

happy2behere, glad to have the discussion.

I heartily disagree that Putin has won the round.

First of all he has done substantial damage to his own economy. Not permanently yet, but it has been substantial, because the Russian economy is based on oil and therefore needs Europe as much as Europe needs them.

So if he feels emboldened it will be because Europe doesn't man up and literally has nothing to do with the US much less Obama.

Europe stiffens up and supports sanctions Putin hasn't won anything.

Sorry but the whole apology tour thing is just a massive slipping back into partisan talking points..and you were doing so well. You won't find any support for that view anywhere except Fox news and the right wing think tanks Heritage and Manhattan.
