Here's Gerald Warner, writing in the UK's Telegraph:
Thanks to President Pantywaist’s supine policies, the former satellite states can see that they are fast returning to their former status. The American umbrella cannot be relied upon on a rainy day. They have been here before. Poles remember how a leftist US president sold them out to Russia at Tehran and Yalta. The former Czechoslovakia was betrayed twice: in 1938 and 1945.I wish I'd said that.
If the word is out that America is in retreat, it will soon find it has no friends. The satellites will pragmatically accept their restored subordination, without openly acknowledging it, and co-operate with their dangerous neighbour, ushering in a new generation of Finlandisation.
Barack Obama is selling out America and, by extension, the entire West. This is a catastrophe for America and the wider world.
When words like "President Pantywaist" appear in the public discourse taking place in the staunchest friend that the US has in the world, it can't be good.
