    No they don't because all they know how to do is criticise.
    It's "criticize", Jimmy, and he brings it on himself.

        I'm pretty sure that Putin is a lot more delighted by the fact that Obama is a bumbling buffoon. You seem awfully butthurt by the fact that people are posting Obama's own words. It's not my fault he looks like an utter imbecile, it's his fault. I owe your boyfriend nothing other than to point my finger and laugh, both at him and his idiot arrogant supporters. "The 80s called, they want their foreign policy back." How'd that work out for your Jimmy? Oceans receding yet? Every time progressitards trip and fall on their face I will be here, jeering like a hyena.

            That is all that matters here. That, and the fact that an ever-shrinking minority of people still think the community organizer is doing a better job than the KGB thug. And Jimmy will be right there leading the cheers.

                He means "no ideas" in the sense that Obama meant "your policy" when he said you can KEEP it. It's only an "idea" or a "policy" if the Obamakins say it is.

                Same thing with "the Republicans have never offered an alternative" to Obamacare. Big steaming pile of horsie poo.

                    Obviously this is utterly false. No other president in our history has taken any flack or been insulted by the opposition. This is a situation unique to Obama. And of course it is all racially motivated since nobody could possibly disagree with his policies.

                          Meanwhile, with Obama's attention forced on the Black Sea, just recently, N Korea is firing missiles again (twice in the last week), Russia has announced it will be refueling its bombers in communist-leaning countries, Syria is still in turmoil, Libya was a failed Obama "accomplishment", and, a Russian spy ship, The Viktor Leonov, makes an unannounced visit to a Havana Bay.

                          Is it time, yet, for Obama to return his Nobel Prize?

                            Should we perhaps send troops into Crimea, invade Russia, keep silent and say nothing? There's no good approach to this.

                            Recall Bush Junior responding to a question about whether or not Putin was a man Americans can trust: "Yes. ... I looked the man in the eye. I found him to be very straightforward and trustworthy. ... I was able to get a sense of his soul ... I wouldn't have invited him to my ranch if I didn't trust him."

                            I suspect Bush knew what he was saying was not true but was putting the best face on the situation. Look at what Bush did in Georgia in 2008.

                            "We did a lot, but in the end there was not much that you could do," said James F. Jeffrey, Bush's deputy national security advisor.

                            Quotes taken from Ron Fournier's March 2nd piece in the National Journal. Fournier was the reporter who asked this question of Bush.

                              The current situation is, indeed, very troubling, and I'm amazed that those defending Obama use the Bush example. If Bush handled that so badly, as I've seen some of them complain, why on earth would Obama follow in his footsteps?

                              It's possible that there is NOT a "good" solution to the current situation, but Obama's foreign policy has been giving a green light to Putin for his entire administration.

                              It is Obama's disastrous foreign policy that has pretty much signaled that the USA will stand back and do nothing. I still have visions of Hillary taking the "Reset Button" to the Russians to let them know we're gonna play nice.

                                Sending troops to Western Ukraine sounds like a very good idea to me. There's no need to invade Russia and Putin's not gonna start a nuclear exchange over Ukraine anymore than we are. Russia has the potential to become a superpower again, just like NAZI Germany did. More importantly, they have no reason not to be one if they can get away with it and plenty of reason to do exactly that. Just like NAZI Germany did...
