President Obama Explains To Russian Stocks Why They Should Be Down - Live Feed

Tyler Durden's picture


With global equity markets exuberant (from US to Europe to Russia) at the prospect of US sanctions against Russia, we look forward to hearing from Comrade President Obama on why this is a punishment and why it's a bad thing for Russia (and where the next red line is)...

The Russian know that Obama is an idiot. They know the average Russian 5th grader would kick his ass in a chess match. They are purely entertained by this embicile. Problem is the average American is 2 times as stupid as our President. We are fucked as a nation.

That masterpiece line from Vlad about playing chess with Obama is like playing with a pigeon, just never gets old!!

I'm already looking forward to watching the MSM try to keep Obama a rock star politician after he's gone and Vlad will be ELECTED for another 6 years after this Crimea maneuver!!!

There's gonna be some billion dollar front foundation with his fucking name on it, ahhhhhhh fuck, it's just never gonna end is it?

Obama's approval ratings have fallen below 40%.  I'm surprised there are actually that many who approve.

Putin's approval ratings in the US are probably higher than 40%.

Obama is going to start a war with Russia to prove to the Euros how smart he is, brilliant!

I love that line too!

Do you get the feeling, it's the WH 4th stringers in the game at this point???

Someone tell them, Crimea is now part of Russia, before they start writing!

Larry Summers and the Boyz "saved the system" and then looted everything they could in the first term and now its time to go back out there and find the next sucker to elect, so they can repeat!

Christ, Obama probably can't find an under 25 handycap to play with among that greenhorn crew of staffers!!

Paper gold creates the illusion that there is more gold then there actually is. It also creates the illusion that fiat money has +45 times the purchasing power it actually has.. At least that's what goldseek claims in this article: http://conquerchange.com/paper-gold-a-fraud-masquerading-as-an-illusion-...

There is also a hypothetical article about the bankrupting and nationalisation of miners.

The more I read, the darker my worldview becomes, intellect and curiousity are a heavy load to carry these days..
