On CBS’s Face the Nation, Secretary of State John Kerry made the ridiculous claim:
“Russia chose this brazen act of aggression and moved in with its forces on a completely trumped set of pre-texts claiming that people were threatened. And the fact is that’s not the act of somebody who is strong. That is the act of somebody who is acting out of weakness, and out of a certain kind of desperation.”
Kerry exemplifies just how much the entire Obama administration has lost contact with reality. To entertain the idea, much less proclaim, that Vladimir Putin is weak, demonstrates a level of cognitive dissonance which would confound even Dr. Leon Festinger.
Putin and the world laughed at The Audacious One after Obama’s feckless threat, “There will be costs,” for Russian action in Crimea.
Despite his feigned bravado, Obama’s record on setting ‘red lines’ is hardly something to instill fear in the former KGB head.
In a pathetic attempt at portraying Obama as a strong leader, the White House released a photo of the Man in “action” during his 90 minute call with Putin on the Ukrainian crisis.
White House officials would not say if the photo was taken before, or after, Putin told Obama what he could do with his phone and pen.
One Twitter user had this afterworld advice for Combat Kerry:
