happy2bhere,"....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.
