Democrat Senator Chris Coons Blames Obama for Ukraine
by Joel B. Pollak 2 Mar 2014, 8:22 AM PDT

Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE) told an audience of thousands of pro-Israel activists on Sunday morning that Russian President Vladimir Putin had been encouraged to invade the Crimea region of Ukraine partly because of the Obama administration's weakness in responding to Syria's crossing of the "red line" on chemical weapons.

Coons, known primarily to conservative voters as the man who defeated Tea Party favorite Christine O'Donnell in 2010, has been a hawk on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Last August, he lent his support to efforts to authorize military action in Syria, adding an amendment to require consultation with Israel and other allies.

Coons was a featured speaker on a panel discussion near the start of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) Policy Conference.

Wow.  This is actually very big news.  You're right, he'll need to walk this one back, even as Obama's MSM ignores it.  It's a political ad for the NE states that can't be ignored.

Chris Coons is an idiot.  He just put a post up on FB--bragging about his stance against the anti-gay laws in Uganda.  The comments he's getting are hilarious.

Posts supporting anti-gay laws in Uganda aren't out of the mainstream, unless you think that imprisoning homos is good policy.

maybe, maybe not.  The democrats may see Obuttocks' primary value now as residing in his pen and his willingness to sidestep the rule of law using executive orders.  Since Obama will not be impeached, short of him lending the USAF to Putin for strafing runs against Ukrainian troops, and since he won't need to curry any bipartisan favor with anyone since he'll be doing everything by executive order, and lastly because he cannot run for president again, and will most likely not seek any other political office, they can afford to have him be seen as a bit of a scapegoat right now.

Basically, since Obama doesn't need to persuade anyone else to go along with him in order for him to do what he's going to do, and since he can't be stopped, there is no harm done, as far as the democrats see it, if vulnerable party members are allowed to claim they reject some of his positions and actions.

Essentially, Obama has been such a disaster for the country that even democrats can effectively run against him in 2014 and 2016; which is just fine with Obuttocks because he's going to be doing everything via diktat (i.e., executive order).
