Barack Obama, ‘Bitter Clinger’? Did Pootie-Poot Putin Imply as Much?

Written by Jeannie DeAngelis on March 19, 2014

Mutual animosity and one-upmanship between egomaniacs Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin is what has put a fire under the spat that is currently raging between the two presidents. The tension the world is witnessing was born of frictions created far from the Ukraine, and is being kept alive by more than an inability to “coincide” on Syria.

These are two men with very huge perceptions of self, which is precisely the reason Obama refused to let President Putin use the gym at the G8 Summit in Ireland. When the incident took place, according to The Sun, “Neither wanted to back down — or work out together.” Thus has been the case ever since.

Not that Vladimir had any affection for Obama prior to the G-8 gym incident, but the president’s immature decision to banish the ex-KGB macho man to swim in an icy lake was just one of many counter jabs between the two.

Obama compounded the volatile gym situation when he decided that, when it comes to homosexual policy, his way is the only way.

Fully aware of Putin’s stance on homosexual propaganda, whether he agreed or disagreed, it would have been in the best interest of peace if Obama had resisted injecting himself into Russia’s business. But immature man-child that he is, Obama couldn’t control the urge to make a vindictive point. So America’s malicious leader sent a pro-gay middle finger to Putin by dispatching a contingent that included homosexual athletes to represent the United States at the Sochi Olympics.

Mr. Putin responded to Obama’s dig by clapping wildly as Russian Olympic ice skating champion Irina Rodnina lit the Olympic torch at the opening ceremonies. Rodnina is responsible for a racist tweet featuring Michelle, Barry, and of all things, a banana.

Amidst the racism, gym rivalry, and fruity messages, there’s Crimean Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov who tweeted a picture of Barack Obama dressed in a Russian military uniform which, knowing Comrade Obama, might have been taken as a compliment. There is also Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin calling Obama a “prankster,” which certainly rings true.

For the “prankster” part, if Rogozin really meant “prankster” and didn’t just mispronounce the word “gangster”, either way he’d be correct. Be it “prankster” or “gangster,” the Russian Prime Minister has summed up in one word what took six miserable years and two elections for most of the American public to finally figure out.

As for “rule of the gun,” its probable Pootie-Poot Putin come up with that dig as he was butterfly stroking his way past icebergs in Lough Erne Lake while Obama was working up a sweat doing butterfly stretches and listening to Olivia Newton John sing “Let’s Get Physical” on his iPod.

Putin is a quick study. The “rule of the gun” crack probably put the hurt on Obama’s anti-gun side. Vladimir Putin actually called the foreign policy of the nation Barack Obama currently leads something that Obama once said as a put-down about Americans who didn’t agree with him.

Let’s recall Obama’s Putin-like statement about small-town Pennsylvanians: “And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

At a joint session of parliament Putin had something similar to say about his “Western partners,” otherwise known as Barack Obama: “Our Western partners headed by the United States prefer not to be guided by international law in their practical policies, but by the rule of the gun.” That’s the ‘bitter clinger’ part.

The Russian president expounded further, and this time the only thing missing was a picture of Barack Obama: “They have come to believe in their exceptionalism and their sense of being the chosen ones. That they can decide the destinies of the world, that it is only them who can be right.” That’s the “antipathy toward people who aren’t like them” part, which pretty much summed up the last six years of enduring Barack Obama.

Obama might have banished Putin to a cold lake, but from the president of Russia’s point of view, the man who accused Second Amendment supporters of being “bitter clingers” is himself – this is too good – a “bitter clinger.”

One can’t help but surmise that being portrayed as a ruler who rules with a gun is probably just as offensive to Mr. Obama as Billy Jean King showing up at the Sochi Olympics was to Mr. Putin. Especially since, when he’s not running guns to Libyans, Mexican drug cartels, and Syrian rebels, Nobel Peacenik Barack Obama’s goal has always been to establish an image as a pacifist negotiator whose smooth-as-the-skin-on-a-baby’s-butt hands shun the harsh cold steel of a gun barrel.

So, in the ongoing quid pro quo between Vladimir “Vova” Putin and Barack ‘Bitter Clinger’ Obama, the “rule of the gun” slap certainly puts the Russian president on top in the battle for insult superiority.

Meanwhile, Barack Obama, the “chosen one” who, when not “deciding the destinies of the world,” thinks he’s the only one “who can be right,” had better hope Vladimir Putin doesn’t defame his image further by calling him a pro-life capitalist.
