Obama, Putin, FIFA, and the Supreme Court
Posted by madjillmom on June 10, 2015
I guess my little mind needs some hobgoblins. I wonder about consistency with Pres. Obama. I listened to his press conference from the G7 meeting on Monday.
He was asked about FIFA corruption. He said he couldn’t really comment because it is being investigated. Next he was asked about the Obamacare case pending before the Supreme Court. He didn’t defer because it is being considered, he bashed the Supreme Court for taking the case and said they should find in his favor. Yesterday, he decided that the cop in McKinney should be relieved of duty pending an investigation. So where are your boundaries, Pres. Obama? Can’t speak on a subject under review? I would like some consistency your approach to these things.
Then he insisted that we and the other G7 nations need to keep sanctions going against Russia. We need to cripple their economy to deter Putin’s aggression against the Ukraine. He is emphatic about this. Yet, he says we must stop the sanctions put in place in order to stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb. Months and months of talks and no sanctions while Iran cooks up some nuclear stuff right under Obama’s nose.
