“It was a bad crisis for the world it required tough work, but a smart approach to call on the international community to step in, uh and I am very, very happy that the Senator’s [Obama’s] request for a cease fire has been complied with by President Putin” -Gov. Tim Kaine (VA-D)BTW, Putin is the Prime Minister now, not the President, but who needs to know who is who when your guy is “The Messiah”.
UPDATE: Does Kaine say Putin or Medvedev? You be the judge. Hard to tell in the video.
Weapons of Mass Discussion has some great points about this
