Crimea Votes to Secede, Obama Rejects

In October 2009, Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for his great accomplishment regarding... or his contribution to... or... I don't know why he won.

Nonetheless, it was easy. It was pathetic, but it was easy for Obama.

Being president of the United States is hard!

Vladimir Putin, that shirtless horseback KGB guy, is making Obama look stunnigly weak and helpless.

Yesterday, when citizens of Crimea voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine, Obama rejected the results.

Putin insists the results are legitimate and according to international law, citing "Kosovo’s 2008 unilateral declaration of independence – which Moscow bitterly opposed."

We won the Cold War. That's history. Nothing can change that. We won. The Soviet Union collapsed. We won.

What's happening now, with Russia on the march, is a new conflict. Putin seems to want regain some of that lost dominance, returning to the "glory years," when the Soviet Union was a super power. He has supporters, those wanting to remind the USA that "Russia is the only country in the world realistically capable of turning the United States into radioactive ash."

What now, Mr. Nobel Peace Prize Laureate?

Bow down? Apologize? Ignore?

Tell us your NCAA tournament bracket?

Tell us we can't keep our doctors?

All bad.
