There are three reasons why we are not still debating entering Syria so as to protect Obama’s god-like self-image. First, we the American people spoke up against sending our troops into another endless war. Secondly, a reporter asked a good question which gave Kerry an opportunity to “burp” out a route to avoid war. Third, Putin is an opportunistic leader and he jumped on Kerry’s proposal in order to improve his public image and protect his ally, Syria.
Why did The New York Times publish an editorial from Putin where he questioned American exceptionalism? Why did TIME Magazine put Putin on the cover of its international versions and a college football player on its domestic version of a recent issue? It’s not because Putin was sending their writers and editors cases of Russian vodka. It’s most likely because Americans, including the conventional media professionals are fed up with a president who has shown himself to be willing to launch us into WWIII and needlessly loses scores of American lives all to protect his ego.
Whether conservatives, liberals, moderates or libertarians, we all feel the same way: We want our president to lead, lay out a plan and not rely on “burps” from his Secretary of State or corrupt leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin to determine our foreign policy. Right now, it looks like Putin is running the show and that’s embarrassing not to mention appalling given his immoral style of governing Russia.
Go ahead. Pour me a glass of vodka, Putin. On the rocks, please. But don’t expect Americans to buy into the notion that you are a leader. You are an opportunist. We know it. We just want our own president to take the lead and if it means embarrassing him into leadership by propping you up temporarily, then that’s what we’ll do. And we also think you should live up to all the positive American media coverage you are getting by releasing Mikhail Khodorkovsky.
