Schumer says Putin surely knew about Snowden flight. Yet Obama knows nothing about anything—

I know Obama is busy, but maybe he should become more engaged in this Snowden situation.—

Hey, he can’t! President Obama knows nothing about anything until he’s read it in the papers or seen it on the news, right? So we can’t expect to even hear from him yet.
But Sen. Schumer took to the Sunday shows today and weighed in on the Snowden fiasco:
Sen. Chuck Schumer, on CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning, told host Candy Crowley that he is “very disappointed” with how Hong Kong handled Snowden, and believed that “the hand of Beijing was involved here.” He had harsher words for Russia, saying there’d be “serious consequences” for the U.S.-Russia relationship, and that “allies are supposed to treat each other in decent ways.” The senator also made the assumption that Vladimir Putin approved Snowden’s plane landing in Russia, and called the president “infuriating.”
Twitter users, including Drudge editor Joseph Curl, aren’t impressed by Schumer’s bluster.
They also point out a few things about our craven President:
Snowden to Russia, old Putin giving Obama the finger again.—

How big is Putin smiling right now? I wonder if Obama can see the big finger he's holding up for the satellite to see?—
