It doesn’t take too much effort to make a fool of Barack.
Especially when you consider how willing he is to do the heavy lifting for you.
The easiest way is to simply laugh him off.
Mockery is Obama’s Kryptonite.
Barry takes himself far too seriously. It’s his curse.
In fact, I’d venture to say the one person who fell lock, stock and barrel for the myth of Barack Obama the Great Savior and Healer is none other than Barack Obama himself.
He believes his own hype and propaganda.
He really does think of himself as the tough guy on the world stage.
And mocking and dismissing him is the easiest way to expose him for the fool he is.
Yesterday, when Obama played the tough guy, Russia first responded with classic mockery.
Then, Vladimir Putin simply dismissed Barack’s saber-rattling as completely irrelevant.
Rather than stoop to Barack’s vindictive level, Putin took the high road and revealed Barack Obama to be the petty, spiteful fool that he is.
In a statement released this morning, Putin said, among other things [Hat tip Zero Hedge]:
We regard the recent unfriendly steps taken by the outgoing US administration as provocative and aimed at further weakening the Russia-US relationship. This runs contrary to the fundamental interests of both the Russian and American people. Considering the global security responsibilities of Russia and the United States, this is also damaging to international relations as a whole.
As it proceeds from international practice, Russia has reasons to respond in kind. Although we have the right to retaliate, we will not resort to irresponsible ‘kitchen’ diplomacy but will plan our further steps to restore Russian-US relations based on the policies of the Trump Administration.
Putin dismissing Obama’s pretend toughness exposes Barack for the hot-headed, petulant foot-stomper that he is.
Putin then stuck the knife in:
We will not expel anyone. We will not prevent their families and children from using their traditional leisure sites during the New Year’s holidays. Moreover, I invite all children of US diplomats accredited in Russia to the New Year and Christmas children’s parties in the Kremlin.
It is regrettable that the Obama Administration is ending its term in this manner. Nevertheless, I offer my New Year greetings to President Obama and his family.
My season’s greetings also to President-elect Donald Trump and the American people.
I wish all of you happiness and prosperity.
If there is one thing that Barack Obama cannot endure it is being seen as irrelevant and inconsequential.
And Putin did just that.
Putin’s dismissive statement reduced Obama’s sturm und drang over Russia to nothing more than the inconsequential squeaking of a timid, foolish mouse.
Or, as Tyler Durden from Zero Hedge put it, “And with that one statement, Obama lost the diplomatic war with Russia.”
The problem of course is when Barack Obama is made a fool of, he tends to lash out at everyone like a two-year-old throwing a tantrum in the middle of Walmart.
The last thing Barry will do is realize he’s been made the fool.
He won’t let it go.
He won’t back down.
Because at the end of the day, his ego is too massive to recognize his own defeat.
