Remember when Americans cared about this kind of thing?

Russia invades Ukraine - Obama declares Happy Hour.

The Obama administration has responded, so far, in a manner that is pathetic even by its own standards. After issuing stern warnings to Russia not to invade Crimea, the administration, confronted with the actual presence of Russian troops on the ground, philosophized about whether it was really an invasion, suggesting that a more apt term might be an “uncontested arrival.” Former chess champion Garry Kasparov reacted with stunned indignation:

//Garry Kasparov        ✔ @Kasparov63
US calls Crimea "uncontested arrival", not invasion. Obama will win semantic fights in the air while Putin wins with troops on the ground.//
President Obama himself, having delivered a limp warning to Vladimir Putin, decamped for a meeting of the Democratic National Committee, where he told a cheering crowd: “Well, it’s Friday, it’s after 5:00. So this is officially happy hour with the Democratic Party.”

This has got to be a problem for the Obama Administration---The legally elected Ukrainian goes off the tracks and decides to run the country his own way counter to the popular will (sound familiar?) The people rise up, seize the government and the weasel runs out of town (wishful thinking?)
To support the Ukrainian people in this case lends credibility for Americans to suppose that it's OK to take control and run his sorry @$$ out of Washington as well.
Well, if the law doesn't apply to you, I guess that is OK.
