I can’t believe I missed this gem.  I must have been focused too much on the Olympics.

According to Virginia Governor Tim Kaine (who is being discussed as a potential VP candidate for Obama), Obama has quelled the Russians.  You read that right!  Because of his request for a cease fire, the Bear lays down its arms and agrees to pull out of Georgia… well, sort of.

It was a bad crisis for the world. It required tough words but also a smart approach to call on the international community to step in. And I’m very, very happy that the Senator’s request for a ceasefire has been complied with by President Medvedev.

HT: Hot Air

No, it wasn’t President Bush, Secretary Rice, or even Senator John McCain.  It was the request put forth by the silvery tongued former Illinois State Senator.  I guess if he can navigate Chicago politics he can accomplish anything!

I don’t know whether to laugh or be very, very afraid at the naiveté of the Obama camp.

  1. Does it not make sense? For the Russians know that Obama will not stand up unto them like McCain would. Therefore, they would want to do whatever they could (within reason, of course) to help the so-called foreign relations rookie get elected.

    Is this how Americans think? I mean honestly, are you all so afraid of the rest of the world everything is based on military action for the sake of perceived ‘peace’? So Russia would want Obama in because they can basically run rough shod over him? I believe that about as much as the guy in California found Sasquatch.

    I know you guys really like the Republicans on this blog – and no matter the candidate they have – you will support – because this seems like…the Christian thing to do? But McCain is just as troubled as Obama – namely when it comes to sacrificing some of your neighbors to keep the ‘world at peace’. I m ay not like Obama’s stand on abortion – but McCain is not really any better (morally – that much is a guarantee).

    I personally think Obama’s lack of experience actually helps here – people do not see him as some stuffy American diplomat and he may even help to change the perception people have of Americans in foreign countries…which is hug plus believe me.

  7. No, not how I think. Actually the Russians never pulled out. Vladmir Putin will do whatever he thinks is in Russia’s best interest.

    I think Tim Kaine’s comment was ridiculous. I don’t think any “demands” for Russia to pull out will be effective. I think isolating them from the international community might, as well as, having Ukraine join NATO will give them pause.
