It has been interesting to watch Putin gain in popularity as he outwits Obama. Since he invaded Crimea, Putin's approval ratings in Russia have gone up 10 points. In another of his historic "firsts," Obama has done what no other president has done: make Putin look better.
As the Obama administration argues over which symbolic, empty gestures it plans to use next, Putin smiles (or sneers, I'm not sure which; with him, it's a creepy yet subtle distinction).
Russia caught Obama off guard. Prior to the invasion of Crimea, in Obama's view our nation's biggest threats were the Koch brothers, the Tea Party and health care providers. Now on that list is the Russian situation, but only to the degree that it makes Obama look politically weak. more >>

With the president visiting Saudi Arabia and the first lady visiting China earlier this month, April would have been a prime opportunity to send a message that America values religious freedom, even in the presence of necessary allies with dismal reputations in this regard. This isn't a Democratic, Republican, liberal, or conservative issue; it's a matter of common decency and of human rights.
The ambassadorship has been vacant for six months and it has been nearly two months since President Obama stated at the National Prayer Breakfast that he "looks forward to nominating our next ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom." more >>
