    Add “koala whisperer” to PBO’s list of skills. They definitely liked him much more than they liked Vladimir Vladimirovich.

      Animals and children knows people who are sincere, kind and genuine (PBO) and who are fake and evil (Putin).

    Vlad is a pariah and the entire world is not the least bit hesitant to inform him of that fact.

    “Ukrainian Australians have staged a powerful protest, laying on the ground in a symbol of the murderous acts they say Russia’s president is responsible for.

    Young protesters, wearing headbands reading ‘Putin, Killer’, laid down on a large Ukrainian flag near the G20 summit venue on Saturday, claiming Vladimir Putin had the blood of their compatriots and MH17 passengers on his hands.

    Their bodies were draped with the flags of the nations that lost citizens when the Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down in July, killing 298 people, including 38 Australian citizens and residents.

    They also said the president had to answer for the deaths of Ukrainians killed as a result of his support for pro-Russian separatists.”

    This is an EXCELLENT post Nerdy – thanks!! I guess our President will not be resting after 2017 as we had thought…he has to run for PM in Canada, and then after winning and serving the maximum time, he has to run for Australia PM….oh dear…

    This man needs about 9 lives….t

      I am awaiting bulletin from the DINO PBO-bashing front damning the ACA with faint praise and prevaricating about “fixing” it.

      On the previous post I offered some thoughts about the Democratic Party leaving POTUS.
      I also think that The President seems to be implementing his agenda quite nicely without them.

      If Clintonland sees value in what they might call distancing then they are dumber than I thought.
      Our President has been steadily devouring the truly democratic parts of our national landscape and will be leaving very little ground for a non-Obama candiate to stand on.
      In other words, If you cannot stand with President Obama then the only solid ground left is as a GOP-lite. Good luck with that.

      I may be off-the-rails here and I’m sure my good friends at TOD will tell me so if telling is what is needed.

        I wonder if these are NEW policies. My brother signed up last year through the help of our very own Lovely Tally and he received a letter that his policy will continue with a slight increase over last year. I am happy to say he won’t need it after January because he will be on medicare since he will be 65 yrs old Feb 1st. I was told if I sign him up for a medicare and a supplemental plan it will be effective January 1, 2015.

      “Conservatives, including in the Abbott Government, enjoy the discomfort that US President Barack Obama feels at the loss of any control of the US Congress.

      It only reinforces their dismissal of him as “the lamest of lame duck presidents”.

      Unfortunately for our Prime Minister, however, Barack Obama has delivered a rather humiliating exercise in power politics over the weekend: showing how leadership and power lies in setting and controlling an agenda ”

      Don’t really care for Sanders…if he’s not outright criticizing PBO, he’s damning him with faint praise. Never had a GENUINELY kind word to say about this President. I hope you understand Dudette, but I just can’t support somebody who’s constantly undermining this President. And Sanders is one of the emoprogs/left-wing Libertarians’ heroes who does exactly that.

        Funny, I don’t really care for Sanders either. I haven’t been able to figure out anything specific/practical/tangible he’s done/been doing other than sound bites every so often. Also, too, he does not ring high on my sincerity meter.
