Obama And Putin Speak, Again - Here Is The White House Summary

Tyler Durden's picture


Another day, another drawn out, pointless conversation between Obama and Putin, which will do nothing to prevent the imminent annexation of Crimea, whose people have voted and decided to join Russia.

From the White House:

President Obama spoke this afternoon with President Putin of Russia.


President Obama emphasized that the Crimean “referendum,” which violates the Ukrainian constitution and occurred under duress of Russian military intervention, would never be recognized by the United States and the international community.


He emphasized that Russia’s actions were in violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity and that, in coordination with our European partners, we are prepared to impose additional costs on Russia for its actions.


President Obama underscored that there remains a clear path for resolving this crisis diplomatically, in a way that addresses the interests of both Russia and the people of Ukraine.


He noted that the Ukrainian government continues to take concrete steps that would allow for the de-escalation of the crisis, particularly as it prepares for elections this Spring and undertakes constitutional reform, and he asked that Russia support the immediate deployment of international monitors to help prevent acts of violence by any groups.


President Obama reiterated that a diplomatic resolution cannot be achieved while Russian military forces continue their incursions into Ukrainian territory and that the large-scale Russian military exercises on Ukraine’s borders only exacerbate the tension.


President Obama said that Secretary Kerry continues to be prepared to work together with Foreign Minister Lavrov and the Ukrainian government to find a diplomatic resolution to the crisis.

Photo of the president, with sleeves rolled up and a pained expression on his face to be released shortly. Meanwhile Putin's oblivious trampling of all Obama warnings, pleadings, threats, teleprompter readings and what not continues without a hitch.

Meanwhile, this is the Kremlin's take of the same conversation:

At the initiative of the American side Vladimir Putin had a phone conversation with U.S. President Barack Obama.


The topic of the continued discussion were the various aspects of the crisis in Ukraine. Putin drew attention to the inability and unwillingness of the current Kiev authorities to curb rampant ultra-nationalist and radical groups, destabilizing and terrorizing civilians, including Russian-speaking population and our compatriots.


In this context is being considered sending an OSCE monitoring mission to the Ukraine. According to the President of Russia, the activity of such a mission should be extended to all Ukrainian regions .


In connection with the referendum held in Crimea, Putin stressed that it is fully consistent with international law and the UN Charter and takes into account, in particular, the famous Kosovo precedent. At the same time the inhabitants of the peninsula were guaranteed the possibility of free will and self-determination.


The heads of state noted that, despite the differences in opinion the two should work together to seek ways to help stabilize the situation in Ukraine .


The U.S. President congratulated the President of Russia on the success of the Paralympic Winter Games and asked to convey greetings to the participants of the competition.

To the people who set this shit up - get a life. I do business every day with Sikh's, Phillipinos and Chinese. They are all middle class MEN who seek the same thing we Anglo's seek. They came here for a better life and are getting screwed out of it by the ruling finacial/political oligarchs. They too believe in life liberty and the pursuit of freedom/happiness. We are different colors and cultures but make no mistake - in our hearts we are brothers and crave the same thing: Liberty. You and your kind do the cause a diservice. Thankfully most people with a brain can see it. You will nver be anything more than a footnote in our history.

Fuck you.

I live in Florida and most of my friends are liberal Democrats (FL went for Obama twice and has a Dem senator, so not a typical Southern state). Most of them would vote to be led by Putin also instead of Obama.

Putin over Obama? Its pretty tragic when that's the perceived preference. Neither will veer off the path that protects the financial interests of the few at the expense of the many. Neither will combat the sense of self-entitlement and self-preservation that festers in the annals of the wealthiest who use crooked means to block and deprive potential competitors rising above the unwashed ranks. For small business owners fascism and communism look the same and which leader represents which "ideology" is for the think-tanks to argue, the rest of us just see the same end result that handicapps the samll guy to preserve the big guy and that turns fellow humans into expendible tools which must be contained and quietened.

Putin> "Folks" Oh you mean friendly people.  I am thinking those folks in Alaska may consider the referendom method of democracy.  Lets help them get started, how about sending Victoria in for some wet work.

Oman> I am not sure them Alaskan folks would choose Canad over the united States of America.

PUTIN: You're on the greens again aren't you you asshole!

OBAMA: Puti, you don't have to be so crude. I'm trying to hit a Par 4 before the snow storm gets here. Usually I get a hole in one every time!

PUTIN: I've seen that bullshit from the leader of North Korea!

OBAMA: Well, you stay out of the Ukraine, and I'll mulligan my way through 3 more holes.

PUTIN: Fuck off. (click, dial tone)

OBAMA: He's just jealous that I can golf and be stylish on a bike. Probably because he's a member of the NRA.

Clinton's Oval Office had Gold Drapes with a Royal Blue Carpet with the Presidential Seal. George W. Bush changed the carpet to white with a Presidential Seal.


In 2010 Barack Obama removed the Gold Drapes and replaced them with Red. Kennedy's Oval Office had Thin White Drapes on Rods.


It changes withe every administration. Change you can believe in...Carpet Color and Drapes and Paintsings too!!!


Why concentrate on the superficial??? It may be decorated in BLACK ASHES accented with Orange Smoldering Coals in the near future. Perhaps it will after we do something really stupid like go to war over the Crimea and support the Fascist Government in the Ukraine.


Our best bet is to stay out.

Just FYI before you mistake Putin's posing with reality. http://www.loc.gov/law/help/firearms-control/russia.php

It's important to keep in mind that all of these fuckers have the same basic agenda.   Even assuming this is a battle between the West and the Russians over who is in charge (the jury is still out that it's not just theater), none of the above is still the best answer.

Did Obama mention to Putin that he has a phone and a pen?  It was probably his only chance to inflict real damage on Putin by causing him to die laughing.

The problem is that Obama is used to dealing with people who are totally cowed by the American Media, who (for the most part) kiss his ass.   He is clueless when dealing with a real leader like Putin.  Even the race card means nothing to Putin.  I'll bet Obama doesn't even realize how impotent and incompetent he looks.

The current strategy of backing an advesary into a corner and then being surprised and unprepared when he/they take steps to defend themselves and strengthen their own position has me scratching my head.  I agree with you, but to me it looks like they're self destructing as well as being incompetent and they're not aware in the least.  It spooks me out and I get scared at times because I think surely they can't be this stupid what else is going here?

Obama is intellectually lazy.  He doesn't expect people to point out his inconsistencies, lies, and incompetence.  He DOES expect people to roll over and parrot whatever shit comes out of his mouth.  He does expect his adversaries to be cowed by the MSM.  And, if all else fails, he just drops the race card and everyone scurries for cover.  Well, outside of the West, people don't play by those rules.  Putin certainly doesn't.  And Obama doesn't have the slightest clue what to do--and neither do those around him.  So....he tries to talk Putin to death.  Wouldn't be surprised if Putin is just getting a blow job while Obama talks, and talks, and talks...

In a perverse way, its hard to blame Obama for his laziness.  He was handed things his whole life:  college scholarships, admission to Colombia & Harvard, Editor-in-chief of the Harvard Law Review (in which he published zero articles), his Senate seat (based on a single speech), widespread acclaim (undeserved), the Presidency of the United States, and last but not least: the Nobel Peace Prize.  That, plus he knows that most of the Washington Press Corps would gladly volunteer to give him head (it wouldn't shock me if most of them have).  And after he retires, he will be put out to stud in a fashion that would make even Bill Clinton jealous.  Fuck, I'd be him if I was offered the chance and had no shred of dignity.

The shit I find truely fucking amazing is this.......Jane Fonda, a civilian, goes over to Vietnam as a 20 something, high on god knows what, and says some stupid shit, and there are elements in this fucking Country that still scream a bloody storm about she's traitor and blah blah blah

BUT John fucking Kerry, a commissioned officer in the US military goes before Congress In the 1970's and accuses the US military and it's soldiers of war crimes and genocide, and that bitch gets nominated for US President, is the god damn Sec of State and re-elected forever a US Senator, and nobody says a god damn thing!!!

NOW that bitch is the biggest war monger on the planet............and still no one says a god damn thing in the media or civil society?????

It's just unreal, surreal, Shakespearean shit IMO!

Good point.  You have to remember though that JK was elected by Mass-of-two-shits.  MA will elect any POS; the more un-American, the better.  They are the people who kept electing Ted "the swimmer" Kennedy for term after term no matter WTF he did.  He actually drowned someone while driving drunk and those massholes STILL re-elected the fucker.  Once you are elected to a high enough office, people will forget what you said and kiss your ass--especially if you are a liberal.

Putin must respond to Obama: "I am very pleased that you recognize the new government in Kiev as legitimate and strongly supports them.
But the problem is that I do not recognize this power legitimate. I think all these people rebels and criminal fascists. So, I will arrest all of them, give to court and  after this, they will sentenced to death. Invitation to a Beheading, I'll send you in advance. "
