EXCLUSIVE: Situation Room Map Boosts Obama’s “Victory in Europe” Claim

HotAir has the scoop about the blowback over this SOTU passage:

We’re upholding the principle that bigger nations can’t bully the small–by opposing Russian aggression, supporting Ukraine’s democracy, and reassuring our NATO allies.

Sissypuss the Blog Kitty was able to sneak into the Situation Room, where #OccupyResoluteDesk does all that there “strategery” stuff with Al Sharpton, Joe Biden, and Van Jones. This photo of Obama’s NATO Strategic Vision totally refute what those “Jaycee” dudes with all the brass are saying:
General Van Jones said so
Anybody that thinks sixten* armies in the Urkraine isn’t enough to deter Vladimir doesn’t know we’re going to drop a monster set of cards, pour guys into Southern Europe, and make a flanking move through the Middle East, cleaning up ISIS (shown here in red) en passant. If that doesn’t shut up the peanut gallery of patriots with deflated balls, nothing will.

Hot Obama leadership tips #39: “The key to sounding confident is arranging the map just so.”

    But where was de facto President Jarrett (America’s first woman-rodent hybrid president)?

    Writing 0bama’s next speechifying script?

    Or maybe making a list of prole bloggers and commenters to join Dinesh D’Souza at the re-education camp?

    Does that plan sound kind of Risk-y to anyone else?

    Hmmm. The flanking move will hit that new wall the Saudis are building. (Unless they use one of the already-under-construction Hamas Terror Tunnels to go under it.)

    So I think it’s a feint, and they’re going to row westward, and march overland through Asia, and come hit ISIS through the now thoroughly under control (because barry won!) mountains of Afghanistan.

    We should bring elephants, though. They’ll never expect that.

    It’s definitely a roll of the dice.

    The President lives in a fantasy world and the majority of voters in this country share the address.

    Or, we live in Psychoville and Obama’s the mayor.

    Putin appears entirely unperturbed by sanctions, even with the price of oil killing his budget (their 3-year plan assumes $100+ per barrel). He may even be prompted to more adventurism to distract his public.

    But the Risk analogy assumes you play to win. Obama is just going through the motions on all of it, he really doesn’t care about foreign affairs at all – except for undermining Israel and diminishing American influence.

    And sanctions will combine with lower oil revenues to hurt the EU economy, which is already teetering on the brink. Back before Obama, US recoveries were robust enough to drag along the rest of the industrialized world with us. No more.

    And en passant is a chess rule. Doubt Obama can play. The game teaches humility first.

    Unfair comparison. Rodents only steal what they can eat and use to make a nest.

    I miss all the old Borises. Yeltsin, Spassky, and Badenoff.

    Heh. Yeah, the new Borises, like the Lord Mayor of London and that tennis guy, just aren’t the same.

    No combovers. No horrible accent. Although “Bors” Johnson does have a real mop for a head of hair.

    I’ll bet barack lost every game of Risk he attended in college. Couldn’t understand the strategy at all, other than the fact that early losers get to spend more quality time with the keg.

    You guys really know how to park ‘r brothers in a box with this series of puns. Why? Board-om?

    Not to be pedantic but it’s actually 10 armies – the one to the right of the “III” is a “V” for five.

    Obama has established his own version of the Maginot Line. Much like the Germans, the Russians will just go around it.
