Russia honors Obama with postage stamp for 50th birthday
Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister of Russia, and former head of the KGB, rules as de facto czar of enormous empire that spans 11 time zones. A confirmed and dedicated Communist, Putin has decided that Russia should publicly honor another fellow socialist on his 50th birthday.
From "The Voice of Russia" English language website we read:
Russia's Post Office has issued a collection of stamps and envelopes to mark the 50th jubilee of the US President Barack Obama.
The US leader is celebrating his birthday on the 4th of August.
In one of his recent interviews Mr. Obama said that fifty years ago nobody could imagine Russia and the US as partners. He added that confrontation ended together with the Cold War.
He said that the Internet and mass media have made people from all over the globe closer to each other. "It is important to contribute to mutual understating between Russia and the US, one of the world's leading countries", Mr. Obama said.
Russia's Post Office also presented the US leader with a postmark featuring his portrait. Mr. Obama liked the gift, stamped several envelopes and then signed one of them with dedication to the museum of the Russian Post Office.
I'm willing to wager a considerable sum of our devalued American dollars that the NY Times, NBC, nor any of the usual liberal media suspect's outlets will run this story.
I also question how -- in the middle of the faux debt ceiling crisis -- our Adolescent-in-Chief had time to stamp several envelopes and sign one for the Museum of the Russian Post Office.
Did the sycophants who make up the White House press corps, receive a daily Presidential schedule that indicated our President was spending time performing ceremonial duties for the Russian Post office? Was this meeting "off the books" of the White House Communications office? Was Obama actually at the Russian Embassy when this ceremony took place?
This entire episode seems odd, curious and deeply disturbing.
