NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas opened the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia with a short profile of the country’s president, Vladimir Putin. Airing on NBC, the profile package portrayed Putin as a statesman and an accomplished peacemaker, crediting him for preventing an American airstrike on Syria and for coaxing the Iranian government to the nuclear negotiating table. The profile also framed Putin as President Barack Obama’s superior in terms of global statesmanship.
“Just in the past year, Putin brokered a deal to allow Syria to avoid a U.S. military strike by giving up its chemical weapons,” Costas said in a voiceover, “and helped bring Iran to the negotiating table over its nuclear intentions.”
“And he has repeatedly showcased his confidence to take on the West, particularly the United States,” Costas continued. “Offering asylum to national security agency leaker Edward Snowden, enticing Ukraine to back out of a deal to join the European Union, and passing laws viewed as repressive to members of the gay community and their supporters.” [More imbecilic liberal drivel here]
Never mind that Edward Snowden may have been working for Vlad all along and Russia may now be sifting through a billion gigs of the U.S.’s most vital secrets; or that that deal he “brokered” with Syria didn’t work and his Russian planes, bombs and gunships are helping a megalomaniac dictator slaughter a 100,000 more men, women and children; and not to mention that, while waiting to enact those “repressive laws,” Vlad the Peacemaker is sending out his brownshirts to serve up some good old-fashioned homo a$$ kickings, right there in Mother Russia.
Bob, we just can’t wait for your bleating liberal opinions on floral carbons in the atmosphere, illegal immigration undocumented alien residency, and America’s role in the starvation of the planet.
Geopolitical analysis with Bob: it’s as easy as throwing a baseball. Wait. Bob’s never actually thrown a baseball either.
