    This just makes me laugh...Obama issuing out sanctions...come on...the guy is lost in the woods...he is grasping at anything which will help his anemic poll ratings...let it go already...the current Federal government is a joke around the world...don't bring more comedy to the table...

    Yeah. Remember how tough Bush was with Putin when Russia invaded Georgia? They partied together in Beijing. Talk about being lost in the woods. There was literally no response from the Bush administration when the Russians invaded Georgia.

    Why is it that Bush is always brought back up in any conversation regarding Obama and his policies? We ARE five years into this current adminstration...let go of the past, my friend, let go...

    Just for the record, Bush was not a good president, but Obama makes him look like the greatest to hold office...

    OMG! Let us pray that Putin doesn't bitch (((slap))) Obama instead and asks him to have the US astronuts take a taxi (preferably one from Ukraine with swatzika decals on its doors) to get back and forth from the International Space Station (ISS). LOL!

    Well, if I'm NASA Astronaut Steven R. Swanson, I'm hoping the Russians don't sanction USA space travelers. It's a long, hot reentry without a space capsule!

    They haven't stopped laughing since Putin invaded Georgia when George W Bush was president and he did nothing.

    @Laradian Bwaaahaaahaaahaaa! So the only defense you have for Barack Obama is that he's following George W. Bush's lead and doing exactly what he did?

    But...but...but...... Barack Obama said things were going to change if we elected him President!!!

    Putin doesn't sweat Obama.

    Does America really want to start shit with Putin while Obama is our Commander and Chief?
    Good Lord I hope not.

    @AceLuby difference is I would follow Bush into war because Bush is an ass kicker, " you're either with us or against us".
    Obama is an ass kisser, just how many people will he bow down to?

    This idiot will do nothing but agitate the "sleeping bear". He has no claim to fame, he is a disgrace to America and belongs back in Kenya. You people who voted for him we bought out by a wolf in sheeps clothing that will ruin all American principles.

    I'll bet Putin is shaking in his boots -- from laughing so hard that is. He understands Stalin syle, 20th Century brutal power geopolitics. Obama, father of a terribly muddled foreign policy and his acolyte Kerry understand nothing. The truth is that what Russia and Crimea do is simply not our business. It's theirs -- and we should butt out.

    The world no longer cares what Obama's opinion is... We've went from being the leader to just another voice.. Redistribution of power, wealth, respect etc

    So you think they care about the American left thinks? I see Putin has declared Crimea a sovereign state " after" Mr (extreme left) Obama spoke! I don't remember Putin changing his country's view on Homosexuals just because the left doesn't agree, this isn't about our country's different views inside our borders, it's about the United States fall from elite power in the worlds view.... Nice try to change the subject though

    What are we going to do? Not give them some of the borrowed Chinese money we owe the Chicom's while giving Russia Billions for their oil instead of drilling our own while Europe feeds them billions more for the natural gas they produce and need?

    OBAMA IS A JOKE! And this nation has enough jesters to put him into office... but wow! We sure get worried over gays getting married or not!

    What a world....lol....
  • #34

    No, you are a joke.

    And how exactly do you propose that we "drill our own oil" when we don't HAVE anywhere near enough oil to meet our needs?
  • #41

    @Cal You do realize that we've become a net exporter of oil recently? Between the US and Canada we'll do nicely. It's France and Germany that will be ruined by higher prices for Russian gas piped through Ukraine.

    Ohhh, but we are the 'biggest producers of shale gas now (And users of more carcinogenetic chemicals than the US Army's 'Chemical warfare labs' at Fort Dettrick, Maryland!) Haven't you been indundated with the 'Oil Institutes'(EXXON-Moble, Et. al.)'We're the greatest! TV commercials?
    Whooppee, and we are also the biggest polluters' of AmericKKKa's ground water - as we have all seen - some people's faucets burst into flame when a match comes in contct with the water flow.
  • #93

    @DSalcido

    Hero... that gas is so far below the water table there isn't a chance they are doing anything to our ecosystem and those faucet fires are staged lies by the nut job wing of no oil or gas getting in the US - a group you seem to liken too.

    As far as Americkkk ... you think we are bad? GO SEE THE REST OF THE WORLD AND WHAT THEY DO ... and if you don't like AMERICKKKK get out...

    You can go anywhere in the world in less than a day by plane...

    The point is OBAMA IS A FOOL... and people who support him are BIGGER FOOLS...

    @Cal

    We are sitting on the largest known untapped oil reserves in the world ....

    Where were you educated?

    We have enough for well over 200 years -- known reserves --- and that is not counting what is yet to be found...

    We don't have enough to meet our needs because we buy it instead of drill for it...

    LET ME ASK YOU THIS... IF WE ARE SO SHORT OF OIL WHY IS OUR NUMBER ONE EXPORT GASOLINE?

    Then tell us what you'd do. Come on. We want to know. You're to cool for school attitude suggest you know something the rest of us don't. Please enlighten the rest of the class.

    @TRex84
    To cool for school? Really? There needs to be broad sweeping measures since Obama thinks everything can be solved with strong words, with a loud bark and no bite, and sanctions in a country where sanctions by us won't hurt them a bit! Many other countries will have to go along with large, broad, sweeping sanctions to see if they have any affect at all! Putin doesn't care if he hurts his own citizens. They (sanctions)won't hurt him or his "Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous" personal lifestyle. These sanctions won't hurt the men listed. Putin will make sure that the world knows how high on the hog these men are still living, with maybe the exception of the ex-president of the Ukraine and his underling as punishment for allowing himself to be booted out of office and country being one of his puppets or should I say marionette? Putin hates weakness and will view that as weakness from one of his puppets/marionettes! He will not let that go unpunished for long.

    @TRex84 The time for sanctions is over. The time for a strong foreign policy was BEFORE Russia became aggressive in annexing it's neighbors. Barack Obama chose a different course, and this is the result. Unlike Obama, Vladimir Putin IS a strong leader with decades of military and political experience. He saw Obama's weakness, and Obama has done nothing to indicate any newfound strength. The best we can hope for is the next president having a spine.

    I heard a quote on the radio this morning. Don't know who said it, but it goes like this: "Barack Obama makes Jimmy Carter look like Winston Churchill". Very poignant, and very accurate.

    Wow, can anyone come up with a lighter slap on the wrist. We are talking about the same kind of aggression that Hitler engaged in before the beginning of World War II. In case we forgot our history, the lack of strong action by Europe and the England led to Hitler engaging in even greater acts of aggression including his invasion of Poland to start the war. I realize we have the weakest American President we have ever had but one would hope for more meaningful actions. Including increased energy development and Keystone XL since Russia is using energy as a weapon against Europe.
  • #38

    The suggestion that authorizing Keystone XL would somehow be a blow against Russia is breathtakingly nonsensical, even by Tea Party standards.

    Yup, like "W's" aggression in Iraq, remember?
    Yup like "O's" aggression in Honduras (2009) and Libya,(2012) remember?
    Yup. like "O's" aggression against Syria,(2013) remember?
    Hell, only the Taliban 'freedom fighters' have (((kicked))) the US/NATO's' pale white arse's - of late.

    If the truth were told, your final sanction would probably be as effective as the rest of them. The Russian economy is based on the sale of commodities, namely oil and natural gas. All they have to do is to sit on them until all of this blows over.

    Hey Papa Putin: "Make the UNITED SNAKES (US/NATO) astronauts take a taxi (prefereably a Ukrainian taxi) to and from the International Space Station (ISS)'until further notice. LOL!

    @gammler ----And it would raise the price of gasoline, diesel fuel, home heating oil and all of the rest of those kinds of products. That has already been reported on the news.

    will make them more aggressive if anything, what a joke, almost as funny as Keary being head of state dept, or Bill's OLD lady for that matter, go after the bank accounts of Russian officials???? That should work, hey! don't bogart!

    If Ears wanted to get Putin's attention, he should have threatened to fire Chins and replace him with put Hillary back in the job. That's one sanction, I would be afraid of.

    US should mind its own business considering the USSR was illegally broken up against the wishes of 75% of soviet people.
  • #149

    Not the people living in the areas that broke up. It was given away by Gorbachev and was the most peaceful one of its kind ever in history. It's the definition of a success story.

    This will just make the Russian people mad at us, because they - not powerful government officials - will be the ones feeling the pain from any harm sanctions might do to their economy.
  • #152

    This is true, but then again it's really the only thing we can do short of starting a war. So it's either do nothing or this, in which case the people that hate him will cry foul no matter what.
  • #178

    @TheSaltMiner I'm ok w/ sanctions as long as we keep open communication and try to work w/ the UN for added pressure, but if sanctions is the end all be all, I'd agree. Nothing is a better solution, but even in that case Obama would be labelled as a 'wimp' like many here have with these sanctions.
