Oh my hammers and sickles! Those Russkies sure know how to tell a great joke, don't they?! Perhaps that's why they're so naturally adept at recognizing it when America's president becomes a great joke whom they don't have to worry about as they dramatically step up aggression in the world.
But Russia isn't alone in realizing that America has no president between now and November - just a fundraising, purely-political candidate who has every interest in gathering campaign funds...and no interest in rocking the boat by standing up to actual tough guys in the world.
Which is why Russia, Iran, China, North Korea, and Syria are among those who are running wild right now, secure in the knowledge that Barack Obama - America's commander-in-chief - has hung a "vacancy" sign on the Oval Office door while he's out popping champagne corks with his $38,500 per plate celebrity pals.
And of course, having an absentee president affects more than foreign policy: the nation's unemployment numbers and gloom felt by business owners are a clear reflection that everyone understands that Obama is uninterested in the Bulls & Bears of the economy because he's preoccupied with the fundraising dog & pony shows.
If only we had a president who could do campaign fundraising AND accomplish all of the really important business of the American people. Like that fellow back in 2008...what was his name? Oh yeah, presidential candidate Barack F. Obama.
When the financial feces hit the fan, causing a crisis which the president now describes as the worst since the Big Bang, presidential candidate John McCain told his rival - Senator Barack Obama - that they needed to mutually postpone campaign activities and head to Washington to try to help save the country - and maybe the world.
But Barry sneeringly passed on the whole crisis - waving it away and saying that he, at least, "could deal with more than one thing at once." Except he didn't. He chose to attend fundraising events and make campaign speeches, taking advantage of McCain's more honorable insistence that country comes before politics.
And as we've all seen in the past several years, it turns out that Barry can't do more than one thing at once. In fact, he can't do anything at all except campaign for president: because he's a passionate and charismatic candidate...but has no substance as a leader whatsoever.
Which is bad news for America, but the best news in generations for the enemies of America, who no longer even try to hide their contempt for the vacuous poppinjay whose claim that he can "walk and chew gum at the same time" is all the more tragic for having been proved a lie.
