Petulant, pussified boy-man comes up short again

Putin took his measure years ago, and found Obambi wanting. He was correct in that assessment.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said today he will not expel 35 U.S. diplomats, rejecting his foreign minister’s recommendation to do so in response to U.S. sanctions.

Putin, in a statement on the Kremlin’s website today, referred to the new sanctions, including the expulsion of Russian intelligence operatives, as “provocation and aimed at further weakening the Russia-U.S. relationship.”

“The diplomats who are returning to Russia will spend the New Year’s holidays with their families and friends,” Putin said in a statement that also included season’s greetings to President Obama and Donald Trump. “We will not create any problems for US diplomats. We will not expel anyone.”

He added: “As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-U.S. relations based on the policies of the Trump administration.”

Good for him. Putin is a real leader—a tough, realistic player on the international stage; Barky is a punk in way over his head, an unaccomplished, egotistical cipher with nothing whatsoever to be so narcissistic about. Putin just took the high road and made Obarbie a laughingstock yet again. Not that that’s at all difficult to do, mind; the whole world has been laughing at him while running rings around his smug, stupid ass for eight long, miserable years now.

It’s going to be a matter of real interest—in ways, an outright pleasure—watching Trump and Putin spar and joust under terms of mutual respect, if not genuine admiration. That’s as it should be; if I was an ISIS leader right now, I would be shaking in my boots at the world of hurt about to descend on my head when two serious players team up to put an end to my reign of terror once and for all, instead of just talking big and doing nothing of any real or lasting import.

January 20th can’t come soon enough. That’s when the real “reset button” gets pressed. The entire world will be better off for it, too.

Update! Thomas Lifson:

First and foremost, this move disempowers President Obama before he even leaves office. Our chief geopolitical rival – a notion Barack Obama sneered at in a presidential debate with Mitt Romney – has just in effect said to Obama, “Who cares what you do? You’re outta here in 3 weeks, buddy.” Dismissing Obama as not worthy of retaliation projects a loss of face onto the world stage, making a capon out of the outgoing president.

Again: not hard to do. He never was anything much else but. Our first affirmative-action pResident couldn’t ever have amounted to much more than a sad, bitter joke. And, well, here we all are.

Don’t worry: I realize that Putin is a thug from the KGB. The sad fact is that ruthless people occupy a disproportionate number of head-of-government roles in the world. I doubt very much that President-elect Trump has any illusions.

In the meantime, Obama looks smaller and smaller.

To some of us who saw through the manufactured deception from the beginning, he always was small. Hey Barky, how about getting back to slowing the rise of the oceans and healing the planet, whydon’tcha?

Fucking jackass.

  1. January 20th can’t come soon enough. That’s when the real “reset button” gets pressed. The entire world will be better off for it, too.

    Hope you’re right, Mike.

    I’m trying really hard to ignore the paranoid little voice in the back of my mind that keeps whispering that Obama won’t go quietly, won’t step down voluntarily, and that he intends to make an even bigger mess by resisting the January 20 transition – even though all of my instincts are screaming that it would be purely in character for him.

    You remember back in late late 2007 and mid 2008 when all of the Lefties were having paranoid meltdowns that GWB wouldn’t step down and we’d see the birth of the President-for-life Bush dictatorship in January ’09? I said at the time that when that finally happened, it’d be a Democrat president who refused to cede power and step down.

    I keep being minded that like Bill, I called Trump’s winning the nomination correctly all the way down the line, early, and I was one of the few remaining firm that he was going to win the General when everyone else was having panic attacks every week. Gut level certainty: all of the normal indicators and all of the “Experts” and polls were calling it the other way.

    I really hope that you’re right, and that my gut is wrong this time.

  2. Barky would need the loyalty of the troops to try a coup and Trump and Mattis have that. Go ahead Obama, make your move, it’ll be a pleasure watching them lock you up.

    Re His choosing a fight with Putin. What a real idiot Obama is to try to pull a power play when he has no power. The whole world can literally wait his three weeks out and Putin just called his bluff for the umpteenth time.

    Obama is playing blackjack and when you’re holding a pair of 2’s you don’t double down. He should have just left well enough alone and let the whole thing fade. What a putts he is.

  3. Spot-on.

    Gotta say it, I think that refusing to leave office would be the ultimate laugh riot with extra helpings of fail …. furthermore I almost hope he tries it, as the only result would be revealing exactly who and what the D’s really are in terms that the dimmest bulb might be able to understand, and discrediting them for at least a decade or two. We’re gonna need at least that long to get a good start on reversing the rot. Glad that the process will begin on the 20th !

    Have a safe, prosperous, and happy New Year, Mike !

  4. The down side to Zero’s attempted coup would be people would be hurt by real bullets in a real war. Remember, he’s replaced virtually the entire senior military with his own sycophants.

    The upside of such treason would be that our side, the patriot side, has many more guns than the left wussies and it would eventually help start cleaning up the gene pool from the fatal idiocy known as “Democrat” or, more properly, “petulant imbicilism.”

  5. I don’t think the troops will obey any of those Obamapuke’s orders.

  6. PS Congratulations on your Blogger Award Mike.
    Happy New Year to all the Cold Furies out there!
