If Obama-Putin were a boxing match, it would have been stopped on a TKO

“Even the monkey is embarrassed”

Or if it were T-Ball, the 10-run rule would have been invoked to save Obama’s pride.

Remember how I mentioned that Obama had leaped at an offer from Putin to settle the Syrian chemical weapons crisis? Well, just as Charlie Obama was ready to kick that football through the goalposts in his speech tonight, Lucy Putin pulled it away:

Russia is not keen at this stage for a binding U.N. Security Council resolution that would provide a framework to control Syria’s chemical weapons’ stocks, France’s foreign minister said after talks with his Russian counterpart on Tuesday.

“As I understood, the Russians at this stage were not necessarily enthusiastic, and I’m using euphemism, to put all that into the framework of a U.N. binding resolution,” Laurent Fabius told French lawmakers after a telephone conversation with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.

This is like a bully in junior-high school grabbing a wimpy kid’s wrist and hitting him with his own hand, while shouting “Stop hitting yourself! Why are you hitting yourself?”

It was a total sucker play; there was no deal, ever. The Russians and the Syrians just set Obama up, knowing he’d take the bait and try to make himself look like a tough guy in the process. Instead, Putin’s just made him look like a chump.

Again.

    He’s been asking for it by poking us in the eyes on a regular basis. Now,on the world stage, he’s learning, hopefully, that there are those who aren’t going to take his chit and there’s little he can do?

    And this:

    I’d like to see this in a political cartoon!
