Russia just granted asylum to somebody the U.S. government wants to charge with espionage, and according to Obama it’s only because they don’t understand that the Cold War mentality is extinct:

President Obama told The Tonight Show’s Jay Leno that he was frustrated by Russia’s decision to grant Edward Snowden asylum but said the two countries must work together.

“I was disappointed,” he said of Russia’s decision. “Even though we don’t have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there’s a law breaker or alleged law breaker in their country, we evaluate it, and we try to work with them.”

Despite this, Obama confirmed he would attend the G-20 summit in St. Petersburg in September.

“There are times when they slip back into Cold War thinking and Cold War mentality,” Obama said on air Tuesday evening. “What I continually say to them and to President Putin, that’s the past.”

Obama’s trying to convince Putin that the Cold War is over just like he’s trying to get Americans to believe al Qaeda has been decimated, his administration had nothing to do with the IRS targeting conservative groups and that Obamacare won’t be a train wreck.

Obama, unhappy with Russia over Snowden and missile defense disagreements, just cancelled a summit meeting with Putin. There are obviously times when Obama also slips back into the Cold War mentality.

    Reports of the Cold War`s demise were premature and greatly exaggerated !

    Just minutes ago, a caller to Rush told about being involved in a radio intercept in Sept., `62 of the contents of 21 Russian ships to be headed for Cuba. The caller said that the transmission was established in Morse Code, then once contact had been made, the operator was supposed to switch on the scrambler and start the teletype. On this occasion though, the operator let the first 1-1/2 minutes go thru before stopping, turning on the scrambler and then resending that 1-1/2 minutes and the rest of the message. I believe the caller was going to say that they were able to break the code, but Rush kept interrupting and asking clarification questions and effectively got the caller off message.

    The caller`s point was that Kennedy used the info to stop the shipment / setting up the Blackade and stopped the Missile Crisis without divulging how he got the info, unlike Barry the Bragger who spilled the beans on Seal Team 6 getting Bin Laden and several others instances of loose lips !

    I call BS. I think Obama just found out there wasn't going to be any beer at the summit.

    It is typical of this administration to blame something else for their own ineptitude and failures. Speaking of blaming something else, I just saw over on Drudge that the HUD Secretary (another govt entity that needs to be abolished) is now claiming that poverty is due to the zip code you live in. This is due to segregation in our neighborhoods, according to the HUD secretary, and requires the HUD to step in and start mandating "diversity" in all neighborhoods.

    If you all thought the housing bubble burst was bad for the housing market just wait till the HUD mandates that your next door neighbor is a gang banger who is just misunderstood and needs a zip code change to have a chance in life.

    I pictured Dear Leader as more of the wine cooler drinker.

    Best way to regain your footing is to pretend that you are dead for a time.

    So according to HUD, a poor family moving into a wealthy neighborhood will become wealthy by what process ? Osmosis ?

    Given the Slimes` long anti-American history, are they miffed at the O`Stration because of the widespread unconstitutional activities of the NSA and other alphabet agencies, or are they feeling a bit betrayed knowing they themselves are being targeting / swept up by the get-it-all capabilities of the newish technologies ? They`ve supported libs, commies, soc-ial-ists, muslims, atheists, all the "correct" groups; why aren`t they protected from this invasion of privacy ?

    More likely by spreading the wealth via a five finger discount.

    Ask the residents of surrounding communities of Detroit just what they think of housing diversity? Southfield residents (mostly black) have had it with Detroiters moving into their community and driving down the school system and housing prices and driving up crime rates.
