Russia invaded Georgia. John McCain was prompt to recognize the Russian aggression and to condemn it. Meanwhile BO seems unable to distinguish between being invaded and be the invader. I doubt BO even knows where Georgia is. View the video:

Real leaders have to make real decisions, in real time.   Yes BO has now adopted a position that sounds a lot like McCain’s.   I say we can not afford a president with such a slow learning curve.  What say you?

Hat tip: Dan Spencer, Red State.

Addendum:(Bit)  Certainly, another of those 3AM phne call moments, David… but with far more serious implications for the US and the west than we originally thought. There’s been a fair amount of speculation why Russia would pick just now for this move. The Daily Mail may well have the answer to that question:

The war in Georgia escalated dangerously last night after Russian jets reportedly bombed a vital pipeline that supplies oil to the West.

After a day of heightening international tensions, Georgian leaders claimed that the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan pipeline, which transports oil from the Caspian Sea to Turkey, had been attacked. But it is thought the bombs  missed their target.

Now, even assuming they did miss, the threat to that line is a serious one, and goes long in showing once again that domestic driling here in the US is critical for our own economic stability. The headline of the story is: The Pipeline War: Russian bear goes for West’s jugular

Until we drill, we’re still vulnerable, folks.

Obama won’t.

Think about it.
