Obama cancels summit meeting with Putin; ‘Reset’ button nowhere to be found

Where is that confounded reset button these days?

From Market Watch:

The following statement was issued by the White House on President Barack Obama’s decision not to hold a one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin:

“Following a careful review begun in July, we have reached the conclusion that there is not enough recent progress in our bilateral agenda with Russia to hold a U.S.-Russia Summit in early September. We value the achievements made with Russia in the President’s first term, including the New START Treaty, and cooperation on Afghanistan, Iran, and North Korea. However, given our lack of progress on issues such as missile defense and arms control, trade and commercial relations, global security issues, and human rights and civil society in the last twelve months, we have informed the Russian Government that we believe it would be more constructive to postpone the summit until we have more results from our shared agenda.

Well, that and the fact that Russia recently granted temporary asylum to someone wanted by the U.S. government for charges of espionage.

During his appearance on the Tonight Show, President Obama told Jay Leno that “there are times when they [Russian leadership] slip back into Cold War thinking and Cold War mentality,” and “what I continually say to them and to President Putin, that’s the past.” In the past — just like Benghazi and the IRS are phony scandals and al Qaeda has been decimated?

    What happened to the statesmanship we heard from Obama regarding meeting with our adversaries “with no pre-existing conditions”? I guess those were, in Obama’s terms, “just words…just speeches.”

    Have we ever had a resident of the White House (I cannot bring myself to call him a President) who was so lacking in sencerity?

    Of course Obama`s not interested in a “re-set” button–that implies`s something CON-structive…& we know Obama prefers DE-struction–Not CON-struction!!!
