RON HART: Putin to Obama: Crimea River

Published: Thursday, April 10, 2014 at 05:36 PM.

Obama is an affirmative action product of academia, schooled in the theoretical world of liberal, faculty lounge, naïve notions and arrogant discourse. Putin is a pragmatic, cold blooded, ex-KGB thug. If someone made movies about their lives, which one would you want to watch?

Obama was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize before he was even in office a year. Just weeks after invading Crimea , Putin was also nominated for a Nobel Prize. Jimmy Carter and Al Gore, of course, have one. Hitler was nominated for one in 1939 but didn’t win. He blamed it on the Jews.

The Nobel Prize has become a joke, hijacked by a leftist committee. Ronald Reagan was never nominated, but through strength he demolished the Berlin Wall and gave freedom to millions.

I’d like to have seen the faces of Putin's fellow “Peace Prize” nominees when the KGB asked for their names, addresses and a brief description of their car.

The White House does produce one thing well: excuses. The O-bots said they did not see the Crimea invasion coming because Putin does not use a cell phone and so they could not keep up with him. It makes me wonder if I should not be keeping better tabs on my 80-year-old parents, for the same reason.

Obama seems powerless to do much about the macho Putin. Putin pumps iron, while our presidents don’t even pump their own gas. He is a man who rides shirtless on horses and spears fish. Our only hope of scaring him is to have a shirtless Chris Christie ride in on a Clydesdale horse and spear his own fried shrimp dinner at Red Lobster.

The U.S. has a feckless president obsessed with his pop culture image. As Putin expands his empire, Obama does his March Madness brackets on TV, joins the cast of The View and Ellen, and does an Internet show with Zack Galifianakis. If all that does not work, Obama plans to appear on the Rachael Ray Show and cook Vegetables Parmesan with her.
