Dick Cheney on Ukraine: “No question” Putin believes Obama is weak

Dick Cheney was on Face the Nation this morning to talk about Ukraine, why it’s happening and what can be done about it. He points out, to no big surprise, that Putin sees Obama as weak and gave several examples as to why. He also explains our response to the invasion of Georgia back in 2008 and laid out some ideas he has for a response now. When asked how much confrontation we are willing to get in with the Russians over Crimea, Cheney said the real question should be is are we willing to allow Putin to disregard commitments that were made in the 90s that led millions of free people after the Soviet Union collapsed.

That right there is an example of intellectually assessing a situation.

Pity Obama can’t do it and has no one is his administration that can.

Funny how the Left calls upon the “adults” from the right to “learn” necessary steps to curtain Russian aggression.There was a reason the peanut farmer was the only Democrat president during the last 25 years of the cold war. Republicans are capable of “statecraft” , the work of projecting resources to alleviate politically tense areas and to bind aggressive moves.

People in the world rely on the US for security and safety. I read a quote from a Nigerian who pleaded with an American on his way back to the States that “you must stop these crimes against nations (Ukraine), we look to the US to lead us during times like this. We need it to be strong”

I agree completely. He makes Carter look like a lion.

I do have a worry though. With this limp President with an ego bigger than NY. Making him slam out to prove he’s not, is a great danger. People like this go over board to compensate for weakness. We live in mad times as it is. Best not to give the raging inmate a nuke to play with, instead of drones.

Russia, China, Iran and so many others don’t Think, they Know Obama is weak. A community organizer becomes president and he thinks Hawaii (his alleged birthplace) is in Asia and America has 57 states with one more to go. The man is a college educated, geopolitical genius I tell ya. He gives stern warnings with his etch-a-sketch to America’s enemies.

He isn’t the only one Dick. I think he’s a limp wrist drape hanging metrosexual.
