Obama Fundraising , Mr. Putin.

We have a "hard working" President , right now he is out "fundraising" for the Democrats . The fundraising has put Mr. Obama completely  out of touch with everything else . Mr. Obama was caught off guard when MH-17 was blown out of the sky in the rebellious parts of the Ukraine . According to the Daily Mail UK  Mr. Obama made his best , he said : 'It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy': Obama made only a 40-second mention of Malaysian plane crash feared to have killed Americans before his jokey 16-minute transport speech drove off to his next fundraising destination . More incredible still  is facing criticism from his own party for --- a day after   requesting nearly $4 billion to address the influx of illegal immigrant minors --- rebuffing invitations to see the crisis first-hand while he's visiting Texas to raise money for Democrats. , Obama said in a late evening press conference Wednesday he did not go to the border because he is interested in finding a real solution to the crisis. "This is not theater," he said, adding, "I’m interested in solving the problem."  Despite all the global unrest , world affairs are not a priority for President Obama. As President Barack Obama helped Democrats bank millions in campaign cash on Tuesday, he acknowledged his administration is confronting "some big overseas challenges" in the Middle East, Ukraine and elsewhere. Speaking at a fundraiser in a wealthy enclave of Seattle, Obama said there is a sense among Americans "that around the world the old order isn't holding and we're not quite where we need to be in terms of a new order that's based on a different set of principles."  The disappointing aspect of the President's approach to the multitude of geopolictical flash points breaking out all over the world, is that he doesn't seem willing to personally take responsibility for either creating them in the first place or acting decisively to fix them. Instead he apparently believes that a "small ball" game is the right formula for keeping in line wayward leaders & terrorists. It's seem odd as well that  the Democrats need to rake up millions to get support , it looks like to me that the Democrats are in trouble at the polls . Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are in the Bay Area Wednesday, but don't expect the two most prominent Democrats in the country to cross paths on their separate trips - where she's getting the buzz, and he's getting the blow-back. Back in 2012 Obama was also facing criticism  for his fundraising activities , it was like he was on a cross country tour , was hardly in the Washington  D. C. area while the government shut down . where 40 guests paid $35,800 each to attend. According to the president’s schedule, Obama is set to attend not just one, but two Democratic fundraisers in New York City while on a “national transportation tour.” Is that a euphemism for – ‘I don’t want to be seen anywhere near the any  crisis ’? I call it damage control.

Mr. Putin.
Another world leader who needs "damage Control" is none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin. Mr. Putin has to address the issue of the Ukrainian Separatists , yes he has to face the music for the fact that MH-17 being shot down near Russia ,is not in the best interests of Russia. Mainstream Western media are already calling for Russia to be treated as a pariah state. As a majority of the victims were from the Netherlands, relations with Europe are particularly likely to suffer. Some in Russia may see the dramatic worsening of relations with the West over Ukraine as being driven by an undeclared US policy of containing Russia, but few welcome it. While most Russians sympathise with the plight of the people of eastern Ukraine, around two-thirds are against a military invasion of Ukraine. Either case Mr. Putin is in a bind , he looks no worse than Mr. Obama becase he can't handle any situation If the investigators' verdict does eventually fall against Russia it is not so much Vladimir Putin's integrity that will suffer, as respect for his strategic skill. He has, after all, never said that the rebels had nothing to do with the disaster; instead he blamed Ukraine for attacking them.Mr Putin will survive politically, but will have to work hard to restore faith in him, and his good fortune.Russia may, however, avoid the blame. And if it does, then the onus for the crime, and the responsibility, will be on others. And Vladimir Putin will have dodged that bullet, too.
