Russian President Vladimir Putin must feel like a teenager whose parents are gone for the weekend. He knows he can do anything he wants--including providing the weapons to shoot down passenger planes and then obstructing the investigation of the crash--and he won't suffer any consequences. That's because President Obama can't be bothered with actually responding (you know--it's all that golfing, burger eating with the commoners, vacationing, etc.).
Remember when Obama made his apology tour telling foreign leaders that the United States had become "disengaged" in the world? Well, Obama took disengagement to a whole new level.
I think that Obama would be perfect in an England-type situation. As king he could be cute singing Al Greene songs, telling jokes at palace dinners, going to memorial services he couldn't care less about--all the things he loves. He could leave the strategic thinking, intellectual planning, foreign-country interacting, and military positioning to the the real leader--the prime minister. Maybe then he wouldn't be such a failure.
