Russians Laugh Off Obama's Sanctions, Taunt Him on Twitter

Putin and his gang just kicked sand in skinny Barry's face.

MOSCOW – Russia’s deputy prime minister laughed off President Obama’s sanction against him today  asking “Comrade @BarackObama” if “some prankster” came up with the list.

U.S. official have warned of additional sanctions for Russian action, hoping it will deter Russia from any further aggression towards Ukraine, but it didn’t appear to upset the often outspoke Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

Rogozin, a friend of actor Steven Seagal,  took to Twitter to tweak Obama, tweeting  he thinks “some prankster” came up with the sanctions list

In a later tweet addressed to “Comrade @BarackObama,” he asked, “what should do those who have neither accounts nor property abroad? Or U didn’t think about it?”

Another Russian on the sanctions list, Vladislav Surkov, also seemed unconcerned.

Surkov,  a top Putin ideologue often called the Kremlin’s grey cardinal, reportedly told a Russian newspaper, “It’s a big honor for me. I don’t have accounts abroad. The only things that interest me in the U.S. are Tupac Shakur, Allen Ginsberg, and Jackson Pollock. I don’t need a visa to access their work. I lose nothing.”

From the pro-American side of whatever this dispute with Russia is (don't call it a Cold War!), John Bolton is not at all impressed with Secretary of State John Kerry's efforts.

BOLTON: "The Obama administration and the Europeans are demonstrating weakness. These sanctions are pinpricks. And you know, we sent the secretary of state, John Kerry, to London to negotiate with Russian foreign minster Sergei Lavrov. That's like sending a cupcake to negotiate with a steak knife."
