Obama’s legacy has sailed...

A week ago, Rick Moran wrote a piece here at American Thinker pointing out that the Obama administration was preparing to “send a message” to Russia and its geo-poker-playing leader, Vladimir Putin.  Following the Democratic Party’s and Clinton campaign’s talking points that the WikiLeaks releases of embarrassing emails were the work of Russian intelligence, Obama was damn well going to show those sneaky Russians they couldn’t get away with such blatant interference in an American presidential election.  According to CIA officials, they were tasked by the White House to deliver the commander in chief a range of options.  According to NBC News, what he quite publicly has selected to do is to conduct a “secretretaliatory cyberwarfare attack on the Russians.

Never mind that Obama and Hillary were quite critical of Russia’s Duma (congressional) elections back in 2011; our sovereign leader simply cannot tolerate this pushy Putin prying into our presidential politics.  This royal outrage has resulted in our grandly announced “secret” cyber-attack on these nefarious Russians, an announcement that immediately got Putin’s attention and gave that Bolshevik bully pause for thought.  Yep, he thought about it, all right, just long enough to assemble a naval task force in the Baltic and sail it with all flags flying right down through the English Channel, blowing black bolshie smoke throughout the entire “in-your-face Obama” transit.

I’d love to be the fly on the wall to catch the expression on Obama’s face when he reviews the intelligence videos of this Russian carrier sailing merrily through waters long considered off limits to Russian naval vessels.  That is one huge Slavic middle finger, and it clearly demonstrates to the world that American voters just might learn something from their Russian counterparts when it comes to electing a national leader with some steel in his spine.  I know it sounds counterintuitive, folks, but seriously, don’t you think our great leader pales just a bit compared to Bad Vlad in this geopolitical jousting?  Ask the president of the Philippines for starters.  He’s likely at the top of a growing and very long list.  I think it is becoming clearly evident to the entire world that there is a markedly meaningful difference between the makings of a Russian KGB colonel and that of a Chicago community organizer.

Obama’s legacy has sailed, and future scholars may require scuba gear...
