Bluster fail! Schumer: Putin knew of Snowden’s flight; What about know-nothing Obama?

Boom!

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:

More from National Journal:

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:

Heh. Stay tuned!
