Earlier today, Secretary of State John Kerry warned Russia that intervening in Ukraine would be “a very grave mistake.” This afternoon, fellow clown Jay Carney doubled down on the paper tiger diplomacy:

So what does that mean, exactly?

What about this, Jay? Does this count?

EARTH TO JAY! Is there not even one person at the White House who’s paying attention to anything that’s going on?

Who the hell is in charge here? Oh:

So very dead.

    So, we’ve gone from “red line” to “intervention line?” Ah, so Obama has succeeded in making lines post-racial. Excellent. Give him another Nobel Prize.

    • Fairfax51

      About time this Prez’s lines are vertical instead of horizontal, made out of iron & he is enclosed in them.

  • kentercat

    I guess Obama was right about one thing – the president would have more flexibility after the election. He just wasn’t talking about himself.
    Russian expansion – From red lines to blurred lines to bread lines.
    And is anyone else noticing that their justification for intervention is identical to Hitler’s when he invaded Czechoslovakia?

    • grais

      All this talk from them about lines…I’m starting to think there’s lots of coke in the WH.

  • walterc

    Come on Carney, you can do better than that, triple dog dare Putin to cross the line. A triple dog dare will get his attention.

    What a maroon.

  • carmenta

    I sure hope the Joint Chiefs have some idea of what an intervention lines is and what constitutes having crossed it. I’d have thought Carney the Clown could give some indication of what that entails. Meanwhile, Barry and Joe go all Jane Fonda on us, running around in dress shoes and ties …God help us! God help us all.

    Question for Mr. Carney:

    Wasn’t the White House “watching closely” as Benghazi burned to ground?

    And we all know how well that turned out!

  • jfitzy55

    The line is the international date line, which as you’ll note hasn’t been crossed yet by the Russians as it pertains to the Ukrainian situation.

    And, why do I think that the picture of Pres. Obama and VP Biden will be used to show how quickly they are getting to the situation room.

    A hint for the administration. If you are not going to take action (which is a fine choice), just shut up and say nothing.

    • en600

      Excellent advice – just shut up and say nothing. Quit making us a laughing stock to the rest of the world.

    Truth is, we really couldn’t do much of anything now anyway. This administration has reduced the military to a point that it can barely sustain itself in Afghanistan. Between this administration and the last one, our armored forces have been reduced to a small Corp and we would need lots of tanks to take on the Russians, a lot more than 2 divisions worth; because that idiot Rumsfeld said we’d never have to oppose a first world Nation again. Hell, we probably couldn’t do the Iraqis again with what we have left. Yep all we need is counter insurgency and light infantry forces. These idiots have cripples us and made us a laughing stock on the world stage.

  • vdetillion

    Well we know what will happen when Putin invades Ukraine odumbo will run like a coward dog he really is with his tail between his legs. Go figure.

  • RD

    Talk about getting slapped and having your lunch money taken!!! Putin has not one ounce of fear for this administration. The former Cold War KGB agent is schooling the community organizer. Sadly though……this is some serious stuff and I am reasonably certain that we don’t have people at the helm that have the experience or the stones to stand up to Putin….he’s already seen what happens when you cross that red line……nothing.

    Upon hearing Obama’s warning, Putin took immediate action and had a cup of hot cocoa before retiring for a much needed peaceful night’s sleep. He needed the rest. He has a lot of invading to do, tomorrow.

    Flotus sees Potus curled up on the floor. Flotus – “Why are crying Barry?” Potus – “Putin does whatever he wants. He acts like he owns his own country or something.” Flotus – “Why don’t you and Joe go for a nice run through the white house. You know you always feel better afterwards.” Potus – “Let me be clear on this Michelle. There will not be any video cameras recording it, will there? That’s where I have to draw the line.” Flotus – “Oh Barry. You and your lines. You and I both know how serious you are. Now get up off that floor and move that big butt of yours. Go on.”

  • Berean

    Do you suppose that whatever Putin was drinking in came out of his nose when he heard BHO, Kerry and Carney?

  • in_awe

    Remember when Baghdad Bob was announcing that there were no American tanks in Baghdad – just as they were running up and down the streets of the Iraq’s capital?

    And didn’t the White House create a new clarifying explanation? It seems that the landing of Russian troops in Crimea were “uncontested arrivals”. So, it wasn’t an “invasion” after all. Everyone just sit down and shut up or find a party to attend.

  • MLCross

    Has Obama changed his calculus yet? That’s when you know the $hit’s going to go down. Yeah, Putin doesn’t want any part of Obama’s changed calculus, you can tell.
