Mueller She Wrote Tweets FTW: President Biden is a Badass.


I've been saying the same thing here in my comments on DU since yesterday.

Nice to see someone else's independent analysis reinforcing my opinion.

President Joe is the Ali of Diplomacy. He floats like a butterfly yet stings like a bee.

I see it as a brilliant diplomatic play by President Joe.

Like a brilliant trial lawyer trying to score points with a jury (i.e. World Public Opinion).

He said something very very powerful that absolutely will influence a jurist's mind and stick for long long time.

The opposition (Putin authoritarian supporters) complained to the judge (State Department) and the objection was upheld. (The White House walking it back.)

But the lawyer knew the jury still heard him and nothing was ever going to erase that fact.

He planned the whole maneuver.

He doubled down and scored twice.

Power diplomacy at it's absolute best.

🚨 TFG Supporters are Threatening to Leave the USA! 🚨


On Edit: DU'ers - All the comments are absolutely fantabulous! I wish I had time to personally reply to all of them. Sometimes it's fun just to have fun.

Hit me, baby, one more time. Door-knock me one more time. Call me one more time.

Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby
Oh baby, baby
How was I supposed to know
That something wasn't right here
Oh baby baby
I shouldn't have let you go
And now you're out of sight, yeah
Show me, how you want it to be
Tell me baby
'Cause I need to know now what we've got

My loneliness is killing me
I must confess, I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

BIG WIN for President Joe: "NATO countries have "green light" to send fighter jets to Ukraine"

I have no doubt President Biden is the man behind the curtain, working the room with his diplomatic magic.

(Trying to get clip from Face The Nation where this was announced this morning. Will update when available.)

Blinken says NATO countries have "green light" to send fighter jets to Ukraine
Washington — Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that NATO members have the go-ahead to send fighter jets to Ukraine as the U.S. and allies continue their efforts to help Ukraine defend itself against Russia's invasion.

"That gets a green-light," Blinken said in an interview with "Face the Nation" when asked whether the Polish government, a member of NATO, could send fighter planes to Ukraine. "In fact, we're talking with our Polish friends right now about what we might be able to do to backfill their needs if in fact they choose to provide these fighter jets to the Ukrainians. What can we do? How can we help to make sure that they get something to backfill the planes that they are handing over to the Ukrainians?"
