Putin Challenge to Obama: Put Up or Shut Up on Election Hacking

Russian President Vladimir Putin has thrown down the gauntlet to United States president Obama. When it comes to the accusations of Russia swinging the election for Donald Trump, Mr. Putin is not buying it. He has told our President to put up or shut up. Vladimir has drawn the line in the sand first, it seems.

As Written By Laura Smith-Spark for CNN:

The United States must either stop accusing Russia of meddling in its elections or prove it, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin said Friday.

Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said it was “indecent” of the United States to “groundlessly” accuse Russia of intervention in the US election campaign, Russian state news agency Tass reported.
“They should either stop talking about that or produce some proof at last. Otherwise it all begins to look unseemly,” Peskov reportedly said about the latest accusations that Russia was responsible for hacker attacks.
President Barack Obama on Thursday vowed retaliatory action against Russia in the light of allegations that it meddled in the US presidential election campaign.
“I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing,” he told NPR.

    Obama: “How dare anyone suggest that Intelligence agencies could have been politicized.” Oh – like Obama’s Department of Justice? Or the IRS? Or Department of Homeland Security? Or his Department of Education? Or his Department of Labor?

    “…..we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing.”
    Ewwww, I’m sure that such strong talk from Bathhouse Barry has ‘ole Vladimir shaking in his boots! My suggestion to BHO is to stop poking “the Bear”, just bide his time as a lame duck President over the next 35 days and then quietly ride off into the sunset with his “legacy”.

    • gibbs slap

      he has no legacy…….

      • Thermal Equalibrius

        Oh sure, he already has a legacy alright – a legacy of the most awful president in US history!

          Lousy at golf!

          • Thermal Equalibrius

            That’s a darn shame, too, considering how much time he has spent on the fairway since taking the Oval Office! (Which I’ve been told rivals Tiger Woods’ tee-time during that same time frame.)

    Obama is a lame duck, paper tiger with a limp wrist. Putin isn’t the least bit afraid of him(?).

    • Elspeth Pilotsdotter

      If Obama had a pair – Putin would never had dared to fiddle in the first place. And who wouldn’t jam their thumb in Hillary’s eye if they could?

      • Sisyphus

        Putin had nothing to do with any election tampering.
        It was the DNC and the administrations DHS, which is why BHO is blaming him.

    Linda, she accused Trump being backed by the KKK. The KKK denied it. Clinton also did this:
    Hillary Clinton’s communication’s director, Jennifer Palmieri, said in a statement the latest run of allegations “sadly fits everything we know about the way Donald Trump has treated women.”


    You know the term “Crooked Hillary.” Now even Israel and Russia have pinned her with the same name.
    She has been caught far too many times to deny that the woman (if that’s what you want to refer to her as..).”woman.” She is just damn evil!

    • gibbs slap
