Russians Are Laughing in Obama’s Face

↳ Posted on March 27th, 2014 by Ben Spera

Putin_laughIn a recent article the Washington Examiner quoted Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) as saying “The only thing Putin respects is strength… At this point the Russians are openly laughing at the president.” It’s not just Russia, it seems the entire world is laughing at Obama. The only people with any fear of his regime are American citizens. The increasingly violent police, federal authorities and tyrannical legislation and executive orders leaves my head spinning.

Teddy Roosevelt’s Bar Fight with a Bully
