Still, you’ll be shocked to learn that Putin does not hold himself to the same standard he’s setting here for Obama. Putin’s Russia launched a war against Georgia just five short years ago. He would argue that the war was justified, but it certainly wasn’t approved by the United Nations Security Council.
Countries have permanent interests. Keeping a court logician in the Ministry of Propaganda isn't one.

It takes Rush Limbaugh to point out where Tsar Vladimir got his closing argument.

My God, we have the communist leader of Russia more proudly quoting the Declaration of Independence than our own president does! We got Vladimir Putin asserting a "moral superiority" to the president of the United States.  Vladimir Putin! Do you people in the White House not know what's happened here?  Vladimir Putin has positioned himself as a mature adult who stopped your immature child from messing around in somebody else's sandbox that he had no right being in and didn't know what he was doing.
Let us remind the Tsar: American exceptionalism is conceived in Liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.  And let us remind Our President: it has nothing to do with the international community's credibility.
