Obama’s Petulance in Full Flower

Email Print

Obama is known to be petulant. This is vividly on display in his snub of Putin and Russia. He refuses to meet with Putin in a G20 conference in St. Petersburg. Imagine the hullaballoo if Putin came to New York for such a conference, cancelled a meeting with Obama, and then proceeded to blame Obama, lecturing him on his failings to live up to Putin’s ideas and demands.

Obama had the insolence paternally to accuse Putin of reverting to Cold War ideas and thinking when Obama has ramped up missiles pointing at Russia.

American senators are a sorry lot of warmongers and blowhards. New York’s senator Chuck Schumer has said “President Putin is acting like a school-yard bully and doesn’t deserve the respect a bilateral summit would have accorded him.” And what has Schumer ever done to deserve respect? He supports NSA spying and opposes Snowden. He has inanely criticized Snowden for not staying in the U.S. and possibly going to jail for the rest of his life, or worse, being executed. He has gone off the deep end in accusing Russia of aiding and abetting Snowden. Obama has now followed Schumer. These men are thrashing around throwing temper tantrums.
