“The reality is the Russians are where they are,” Mr. Biden told The Wall Street Journal, according to excerpts posted on the newspaper’s Web site. “They have a shrinking population base, they have a withering economy, they have a banking sector and structure that is not likely to be able to withstand the next 15 years, they’re in a situation where the world is changing before them and they’re clinging to something in the past that is not sustainable.”
Putin's [or rather his hand-puppet Medvedev's] chief foreign policy adviser Sergei Prikhodko had his own view of Biden's straightforward assertions:
The Russian retort had [a] reference to the previous administration, albeit an oblique one. After noting the ambiguity of who was shaping policy for the administration, the president or his deputy, Mr. Prikhodko said, “We have been there already.”
Foreign Policy mag guru Daniel W. Drezner called Biden's observations "dumbass" and referred to Joe's boss B. Hussein-O thusly:
The word "stupid" has been thrown around a lot this week, but I think it applies pretty well to Biden's language.
Methinks the slavishly adorational media honeymoon for Obama and his acolytes might be finite and while the Andrea Mitchells of the MSM still follow Sarah Palin's spoor like dyke-groupies, perhaps they could soon revert to their administration-bashing of the previous eight years.
And given the lack of spontaneous prowess of BHO when he goes off-teleprompter, even the male altar boys for Heresiarch Obama, like Tweety-Bird Mathews and the CNN/MSNBC choirboy castrati might alter pitch and grow stones. Nah!! Too much to hope for....
