Barack Obama proves class, like speed, cannot be taught.
Russian President Vladimir Putin sent a telegram on Thursday to his old sparring partner, former U.S. President George W. Bush, wishing him a quick recovery from heart surgery.
It may have been coincidence that the Kremlin released the telegram a day after Barack Obama pulled out of a planned summit with Putin, but little is left to chance in Russian politics.
The warm words to the man who once said he looked Putin in the eye and got a “sense of his soul” highlighted how different the relationship is between the leaders in the Kremlin and the White House now.
Probably because Putin, like every other world leader, realizes Obama is an empty suit.
“President” Obama, on the other hand, sent out his lackey to convey his alleged feelings:
White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters that President Barack Obama was briefed on Bush’s procedure and “obviously wishes him well.” He didn’t believe Obama and Bush had spoken, Carney said.
Obama will call Sandra Fluke and the parents of Trayvon Martin, but not a former president. Way to keep it classy, Barry.
