With the situation in the Ukraine deteriorating by the minute and Vladimir Putin gleefully sticking his finger in Obama's eye just as he did with the Syria situation, you'd think that Obama would want to be up to date on the goings-on there. But his national security team met today without him. Supposedly he was briefed by Susan Rice, but shouldn't the leader of the free world and the person Putin most wants to embarrass, show up for his own security briefing?
Whether he eventually got briefed or not, the appearance of his not caring enough to be there in person is emblematic of his carelessness when ever he deals with trouble abroad. Clearly, he doesn't care. To Obama, foreign policy issues are a meaningless distraction from fundamentally transforming racist, imperialist America into a second rate nanny state ruled by an enlightened oligarchy of people like him.
There's nothing Obama can do to alter in any meaningful way the outcome of the Ukraine situation, and Putin is again outing Obama as the rank amateur he is. But Obama could at least give the pretense of giving a damn.
