Obama Grovels To Russia
by Pamela Geller - July 12th, 2009 - American Thinker
When Obama took a pass on missile defense and agreed with Russia's Medvedev to reduce our nuclear arsenal by one-third, he accomplished worse than nothing. He sold out our Eastern European allies, dumping a desperately needed missile defense plan for Poland. As he did so, he revised history, claiming we did not win the cold war. Obama said, "We don't have to diminish other people in order to recognize our role in that history." Yes, he said that. And it gets worse.
When queried in his press conference with Medvedev by Ben Feller of the Associated Press as to whether he trusted his Russian counterpart and whether he believed he's truly in charge, Obama said: "I trust President Medvedev." On the matter of whether Prime Minister and former President Vladimir Putin is really calling the shots, Obama was even more simpering: "My understanding is that President Medvedev is the president. Prime Minister Putin is the prime minister. And they allocate power in accordance with Russia's form of government, in the same way that we allocate power in the United States."
Obama appears weak. He is groveling to Russia. It is a sad performance from a President of the United States, who inside of a month aligned with Chavez-backed Zelaya in Honduras, turned a blind eye to the brutal crackdown of a historic revolution for freedom in Iran, called for ethnic cleansing for Jews in parts of Israel, and distributed 300 million of a promised 900 million dollars to the jihad in Gaza.
The incredible record of Obama backing Marxists everywhere in the world is unbroken. Chavez, Castro, Ortega, Putin, Ahmadinejad. Find a Marxist leader that Obama has not apologized to and you will find a Marxist leader of a really really tiny country. Anybody important Obama has rushed to humble America before and apologize. He has also rushed to finance the destruction of Israel. Are you honorable moderate Democrats ready yet to accept you have aligned yourselves with a Marxist hater of America? Has there ever been a major leader of America so ashamed of our country?
