Obama is like the school yard bully who tries to push everyone around, but when a bigger bully comes along he's helpless. There's a perfect example occurring right before our eyes.
There was a dinner last month in which President Obama hosted some state governors where he called for the governors to work with him on the economy, education, climate change and health care. But it wasn't all peaches and cream. Here's what Rick Perry said about it:
“As a matter of fact, he [Obama] said at that meeting, he said, ‘If I hear any of you pushing back, making statements about Washington spends too much money, you’ll hear from me,” ...
Well, this wasn't the first offensive thing Obama said as this is consistent with his tough guy approach. He tries to bully anyone who speaks out against him.
So it's almost funny to see the Russians mock him so ruthlessly:
Mr Surkov, a presidential aide who has reigned in Russia's media for Putin, joked that being on Barack Obama's "blacklist" was a "big honour".
Poor Barack. It's almost enough to make a person feel sorry for him. But there he is, in way over his head. Community organizing in Chicago doesn't provide much of a skill set for the real world.
