DNC chairwoman: What, politics influencing the president’s Keystone XL delay? Nahhh.

posted at 6:01 pm on April 20, 2014 by Erika Johnsen

You’ve got to admit, she does an almost impressive job here deflecting David Gregory’s persistence, brazenly ignoring the reality of the situation, and walking that fine line between angering neither of the warring factions within her own party — just like the White House is doing on the issue. It couldn’t possibly be any more painfully obvious that the now once again delayed-through-the-election Keystone XL pipeline decision no longer has anything to do with the actual merits of the projects and that it is now all about appeasing the opposition from the small but well-monied and vociferously “green” wing of the Democratic donor class versus avoiding putting vulnerable Democrats from pro-energy states into a difficult spot. Quite the conundrum for the White House, really, but their talking-points robots are out on the job! Starting at around the 4:00 mark:

Many of us laughed when Obama put Debbie Downer in charge of the DNC. She’s an idiot, and worthy of all mockery, it’s true, but she also has the exact qualities Obama sought in a Chairman.

She’s loyal, and won’t go against Obama on any issue. If he were caught strangling puppies, she would blame the puppies. And she is a very good liar in the Modern Democrat Paradigm (beginning with Clinton) which dictates the lie be repeated without waver, challenges deflected or ignored, no matter how blatant it is. Debbie has no shame at all about lying to your face, and if you happen to catch her red-handed in a lie, she will deny everything with a straight face, and not even flinch.

That level of sociopathic dishonesty is rare, even in DC. For Democrats, it is the most cherished commodity.

Sergey Kislyak Fox News Sunday. Russian Ambassador On Ukraine

************************

Subscribe! Fox’s Wallace Grills Russian Amb. in Heated Interview: ‘How Far Is Putin Willing to Go?’ A very incredulous Chris Wallace took on Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak on Fox News Sunday as the ambassador attempted to squirm out of questions of whether Russia would actively enforce its side of this week’s Geneva agreement and disarm pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine, and whether Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in the area represented an aggressive, Soviet-era mindset bent on territorial expansion. “I’m asking you a direct question,” Wallace said, after several of Kislyak’s attempts to deflect discussion of separatists onto anti-Russian protestors in Kiev. “One, can you get the Russian militias to stand down; two, will you?” “We are going to do whatever is necessary to see the Geneva agreement implemented,” Kislyak said, before arguing that Russia wanted to see pro-independence forces in West disarmed as well. “But it has to be a process that includes allAnd I would underline once again, the word all militias must be disarmed.” Kislyak also denounced western-imposed sanctions that are beginning to leaden the Russian economy. “We do not believe that the language of sanctions is a good one to talk in the twentieth century,” he said. “You cannot work with Russia and try to achieve anything with us through the language of sanctions. Third, the sanctions that have been introduced certainly a significant gesture of the revival of the Cold War mentality. But, it’s Russia. It’s a very solid state, well-to-do country. We can withstand pressure.” Wallace was flabbergasted that Kislyak accused the U.S. of reviving Cold War tactics, and asked if the entirety of Russian action in Crimea was evidence of the same. RELATED: Ukrainian PM: ‘Crystal Clear’ Russia is World’s Primary Threat “Oh no,” Kislyak said. “You are talking about Crimea like it is a piece of real estate that we annexed. It’s not. There are 2.2 million people living there. The future of Crimea was decided by Crimeans themselves.” “Under the thumb of pro-Russian separatists and Russian troops!” Wallace objected. “How far is President Putin prepared to go?” “We are not going anywhere,” Kislyak said. “We just want Ukrainians to find a way of dialogue, a new constitution, that would help them live in a country that is democratic, that supports the rights of all the ethnic groups, including certain Russians. And we want to have a friendly neighbor. Because for us all, irrespective of what is happening, Ukrainians are just our brothers.” “Just your brothers?” Wallace asked, fairly incredulously. “I am Ukrainian myself,” the ambassador replied with a cheshire grin. “So is my family, historically,” Wallace said.

We’ll discuss the way forward for Ukraine exclusively with Amb. Sergey Kislyak, Russia’s Ambassador to the U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry helped negotiate a tentative agreement between Russia and Ukraine, hoping to ease tensions between the two countries.

Seriously, I know that the United States has few cards to play in the standoff between Putin and Ukraine BUT it really doesn’t seem as if Kerry and the rat-eared wonder are doing much at all. A couple of “talks” that reach agreements that have fallen apart before the news cycle is over. A shipment of MREs for a military that needs equipment. And, now the weapon of mass distraction that is Joe Biden.

A real President’s SecState would be exhausted at this point doing shuttle diplomacy between Moscow and Kyiv.

[Mr. Obama has concluded that even if there is a resolution to the current standoff over Crimea and eastern Ukraine, he will never have a constructive relationship with Mr. Putin, aides said. As a result, Mr. Obama will spend his final two and a half years in office trying to minimize the disruption Mr. Putin can cause, preserve whatever marginal cooperation can be saved and otherwise ignore the master of the Kremlin in favor of other foreign policy areas where progress remains possible.]

In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin

By PETER BAKERAPRIL 19, 2014
****************************

WASHINGTON — Even as the crisis in Ukraine continues to defy easy resolution, President Obama and his national security team are looking beyond the immediate conflict to forge a new long-term approach to Russia that applies an updated version of the Cold War strategy of containment.

Just as the United States resolved in the aftermath of World War II to counter the Soviet Union and its global ambitions, Mr. Obama is focused on isolating President Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia by cutting off its economic and political ties to the outside world, limiting its expansionist ambitions in its own neighborhood and effectively making it a pariah state.

Mr. Obama has concluded that even if there is a resolution to the current standoff over Crimea and eastern Ukraine, he will never have a constructive relationship with Mr. Putin, aides said. As a result, Mr. Obama will spend his final two and a half years in office trying to minimize the disruption Mr. Putin can cause, preserve whatever marginal cooperation can be saved and otherwise ignore the master of the Kremlin in favor of other foreign policy areas where progress remains possible.

“That is the strategy we ought to be pursuing,” said Ivo H. Daalder, formerly Mr. Obama’s ambassador to NATO and now president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “If you just stand there, be confident and raise the cost gradually and increasingly to Russia, that doesn’t solve your Crimea problem and it probably doesn’t solve your eastern Ukraine problem. But it may solve your Russia problem.”

IMO, the real question is what Killary did or did not do. What we are watching in Ukraine is a direct result of her time as SecState and a feckless foreign policy. Recharge buttons and blather instead of substantive support to a nation promised backing when they gave up their nukes.

Now that the chickens have come home to roost the real question is how much blame should be ascribed to the killer grandmom-to-be and how much of that blame belongs to the West Wing.

During WW2, we put 16,0000,000 men and women in uniform, trained an entire Army and Navy, built thousands of airplanes, tanks, ships and beat Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan in less than FOUR years. After FIVE years, the fools in the Obama Regime are still studying a position on a pipe line that would employ thousands of workers, reduce our dependency on oil from unfriendly sources and not impact the “holy” carbon footprint worshiped by the enviro-whackos. God save us from these Progressive Socialist Democrats.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” ~ C.S.
