Pres. Obama has made Putin Leader of the Free World | Fr. Z's Blog

Sometimes it seems that I am living in a Salvador Dali landscape: clocks melting of tables and all that.

Even as I hear about unions turning on the First Gay President over Obamacare, I find an op-ed in today’s Hell’s Bible (aka NY Times) by former KGB colonel and present Leader of the Free World, Vladimir Putin.

I read the op-ed against the backdrop of Syrian dictator Assad, in a politically deft move, saying right on schedule that it was not the Pres. Obama’s resolve for a military solution that moved Charlie Brown’s football down the field, but rather Putin’s and Russia’s involvement. Well-coordinated. Sly.

Here are a couple points from Putin’s op-ed.

A Plea for Caution From Russia
What Putin Has to Say to Americans About Syria


The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, … [!]


My working and personal relationship with President Obama is marked by growing trust. I appreciate this. I carefully studied his address to the nation on Tuesday. And I would rather disagree with a case he made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. [He’s is talking to Obama’s liberal dem base!  But a KGB officer would know how to do that.] Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.

You don’t get to be on the top of the pile in Russia by being either stupid or a nice guy. This was pretty slick.

Putin invokes the Pope.

Putin affirms Obama’s determination to undermine American exceptionalism.

Putin invokes our creator, who “created us equal”, which point Obama has been systematically excluding from his references to the Declaration of Independence.

Pres. Obama has made Putin Leader of the Free World.
