Obama and Putin: Mr. Flexibility Cancels Meeting with Russian Leader

If that infamous fly that usually lands on Obama’s face in the East Room were to make its way to a wall in Putin’s office, there’s a good chance Mr. Fly would get quite an earful. Imagine Vladimir Putin’s private reaction to a US president canceling plans to meet with him during his visit to Moscow next month.

Like the rest of us, Vladimir is finding out what Americans – from Supreme Court Justices to governors of red states to conservatives and Tea Party members – already know: If you differ with Barack Obama, he doesn’t take it well.

Lest we forget, this is the man who sent a message to Putin via Dmitry Medvedev that after the 2012 election he’d be “more flexible.” The problem is that America’s president is extremely rigid and his self-described flexibility is based solely on conditions that require total flexibility and complete agreement from people other than himself.

Of late, Mr. Flexibility is angry because of Russia’s Obama-style, in-your-face defiance in its decision to grant NSA leaker Edward Snowden temporary asylum, as well as Putin’s perceived pigheadedness over issues like gay rights.

So Obama canceled talks with Putin but made time to visit Jay Leno, where he needled the Russian president by discussing what he calls Russia’s “gay propaganda” policies and the “underlying challenges” the man-child now faces when dealing with Moscow.

In other words, Barack Obama’s answer to those “underlying challenges” is to dictate to Russia his views on homosexuality and attempt to publicly chasten Putin for harboring Edward Snowden, the man his administration considers a domestic spy for exposing a homeland espionage program that he denies even exists.

The president defines Russia’s refusal to embrace a radical gay philosophy and denial of the administration’s request to extradite Snowden in this way: “There have been times where they slip back into Cold-War thinking and a Cold-War mentality.”

In Mr. Flexibility’s narrow worldview, a sovereign nation like the US has the right to change laws to benefit LGBT couples, but another, equally sovereign nation has no right to “prohibit propaganda of homosexuality to minors.” Since past behavior is usually an indication of future conduct, here’s a prediction: America’s “First Gay President” will likely ease tensions with Russia by threatening to boycott the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.

    Since liberty can only offer a history of proven success, along with supporting facts and logic, we must always be on guard against those who attack it in the name of this, that, or the other superstition du jour.

    Just more of Obama’s smoke and mirrors. Obama along with his Marxist administration are answerable to Putin. Moscow owns Obama.

    Obama is totally oblivious he’s an absolute jerk, a flamboyant sissy – there is no comparison between him and Putin as is evidenced by O’s pro-Islam stance. Whereas the world laughs at us, there is still great respect for Russia….nobody has forgotten their history, but they have stood solidly and unwavering since Regan put them in their place.
    Obama thinks because he ‘gave’ (yea, he did) Russia oil rich islands off the coast of Alaska (USA property), Putin should bow to him – wrong – he’ll squash Obama like a bug.

    I’m sure Putin is just crushed by the mulatto Hitler’s cancellation. The Kriminal Kenyan is a joke among “world leaders”, but even criminal politweasels need a laugh now and then.
