Framing the Dialogue

R-E-S-P-E-C-T or Lack Thereof


Deputy prime minister Dmitry Rogozin posted a picture on his Twitter account of President Vladimir Putin petting a leopard next to one of Mr Obama holding a fluffy poodle, with the caption “we have different values and allies.”

I look at The Drudge Report everyday for news and headlines.  While I read our local paper Drudge is my first source when I settle in for the evening followed by I Hate The Media and Breitbart New (I have links to all three on my page).  What struck me this morning was the total lack of respect for our oval office by the rest of the world.  There has probably always been a lack of respect, but the world now has felt the ability to voice this lack of respect.  Reagan was probably not respected by Europe and certainly not the USSR and China, but there was a certain amount of what I’ll can fear/respect.  They knew that he’d act against them if they pissed him off.  His “lines in the sand” were actual lines in the sand…cross at your own risk.

The damage, I fear, being done to our “Commander-In-Chief” position may be too great to fix without bloodshed.  Peace without strength is not a reality in humankind.  Look at the world today.  Obama and his minion Kerry say lots of stuff and the world mocks.  Their Mideast truce lasted a mere 90 minutes when Hamas used the lull to initiate yet another attack killing more Israelis.  And our paper poodles in the White House issue more warnings and promise sanctions.

Here are some of today’s headlines from drudge and the photograph to the right was tweeted by someone high up in the Russian government. My educated guess is that this was directly approved by Putin or worse that this attitude is so pervasive in the Russian government that this behavior is tolerated if not outright encouraged.


 “Hamas detonates bomb, kidnaps IDF soldier 90 minutes into ceasefire…”‘ [BTW we brokered that ceasefire]

“China media exposes long range missiles that can reach USA…”

“Kremlin Mocks Obama in Tweet…”

If you don’t think this is dangerous for us and the world you just might be an idiot.  What if there were not an America?  Someone should make a movie about that.
