From a financial report this morning at VFX –
Obama has scheduled interviews with all major U.S. television networks for broadcast later today, followed up by a televised speech tomorrow at 9 p.m. U.S. Eastern time, all in an effort to get Congress to approve a retaliatory strike on Syria. Most reports indicated that whether Congress would give such approval was an open question, with analysts warning that the situation could trigger a risk-aversion shock.
Webster Tarpley thinks Obama will be impeached if he orders war after losing Congress vote.
G20 REPORT – Ahem
Well, it was 2 am here and I just woke up! He’s a humorist…….
That said, it figures.
Heeeere we go. The predicted downfall of Obomba is at hand. Thanks for this one, Leslie…
Obama needs to be relieved of duty
Is Obama gone totally insane? Please Putin when you retaliate for what Obama is going to do. Please don’t hold the citizens responsible. “Just” Bomb Washington please. You might be doing us a favor.
ALERT: G20 ENDS ABRUPTLY BECAUSE OBAMA CALLS PUTIN A JACKASS AND OTHER THINGS
G20 Ends Abruptly as Obama Calls Putin a Jackass
Posted by Andy Borowitz
ST. PETERSBURG (The Borowitz Report)—Hopes for a positive G20 summit crumbled today as President Obama blurted to Russia’s Vladimir Putin at a joint press appearance, “Everyone here thinks you’re a jackass.”
The press corps appeared stunned by the uncharacteristic outburst from Mr. Obama, who then unleashed a ten-minute tirade at the stone-faced Russian President.
“Look, I’m not just talking about Snowden and Syria,” Mr. Obama said. “What about Pussy Riot? What about your anti-gay laws? Total jackass moves, my friend.”
As Mr. Putin narrowed his eyes in frosty silence, Mr. Obama seemed to warm to his topic.
“If you think I’m the only one who feels this way, you’re kidding yourself,” Mr. Obama said, jabbing his finger in the direction of the Russian President’s face. “Ask Angela Merkel. Ask David Cameron. Ask the Turkish guy. Every last one of them thinks you’re a dick.”
Shortly after Mr. Obama’s volcanic performance, Mr. Putin released a terse official statement, reading, “I should be afraid of this skinny man? I wrestle bears.”
After one day of meetings, the G20 nations voted unanimously on a resolution that said maybe everyone should just go home.
