'Obama doesn’t know how to play this game,' Giuliani says. This was an article I saw that really analyzed what is happening.
in the world of politics.
I think we will see Obama staying in the United States avoiding international confrontations with the Russians and the Chinese and maybe Iran and North Korea. I can't see how he is going to be able to avoid a major conflict in the Middle East either with US troops or surrogates.
Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says when it comes to a showdown between Russian President Vladimir Putin and President Barack Obama, it’s not a fair fight.
“That’s not a fair match, between Putin and Obama,” Giuliani said Wednesday on “Fox & Friends,” looking at a New York Post cover featuring a shirtless Putin and Obama wiping his eyes under the title, “Czar Wars.”
“Who would you give greater odds would catch a fugitive, a former KGB agent or a former community organizer?” Giuliani continued. “Give me a break, a KGB officer, you know, is working him over.”
Giuliani said Obama was too inexperienced to deal with Putin, and the Edward Snowden affair shows his weakness.
“Obama doesn’t know how to play this game. This is why, I wasn’t kidding, this is an experienced manipulator of intelligence, of world power, against a man who has extremely not very well-developed views and no experience doing this,” Giuliani said. “This is the price we pay for voting for an inexperience president. … This is incompetence because we elected a president who was never prepared to be president, and he hasn’t figured the job out yet.”
Giuliani also said Obama is no Ronald Reagan when it comes to foreign negotiating, who Giuliani said got the job done Day 1 with “his eyes.”
“Ronald Reagan came in, they looked in Ronald Reagan’s eyes, Iranian hostages released in one minute. Because they saw in his eyes, ‘You don’t release them, baby, and there are real red lines,’” Giuliani said.
