Obama putin syria

 

At this writing the Drudge Report has the subject of our new photo caption contest on the front page with the headline caption, “Checkmate.”

The link points to a New York Times piece with the headline, “Russian Proposal Could Offer Obama Escape From Bind.”

Here is the opening paragraph:

WASHINGTON — President Obama woke up Monday facing a Congressional defeat that many in both parties believed could hobble his presidency. And by the end of the day, he found himself in the odd position of relying on his Russian counterpart, Vladimir V. Putin, of all people, to bail him out.

Well, this certainly is an interesting turn of events with so many unanswered questions. First among them is, “Will Putin’s intervention in Syria allow Obama to save face, avoiding a most certain defeat in Congress? Second, “Will Obama claim or spin victory?”  (We know Obama is capable of spinning just about anything and the mainstream press just laps it up, but will they THIS time with all of Obama’s bungling?)

Since the outcome of Putin’s intervention into Obama’s presidency is yet to be determined, this is the perfect time for our contest followers to weigh in with their usual brilliance, humor, and snarkiness.

Certainly you all can do better than the Drudge headline of “Checkmate.”

In addition to captions, “thought bubbles” are also encouraged because they help bring out “the best” in our contest writers.

There are no rules for this contest because there are no more rules anymore in world affairs.

Putin coming to Obama’s political rescue is a complicated plot Hollywood might have dreamed up. It is based on two vastly different, powerful world leaders who intensely dislike each other, both trying to grab the power position while helping the world out of a mess.  One is a ruthless former KGB operative who loves to show his bare chest and machismo vs. a thin, milkshake drinking, arugula eating, community organizer.

On second thought, Hollywood would have canceled the movie because it made America look so weak and weakness does not sell.

Have fun and remember to stay classy because classy always sells!
