U.S. Ambassador McFaul Has Had Enough…

Hello! May I Go Home?
Hello! May I Go Home?

The Russians had this man figured out at the get go and he tried to play the games that the US wanted him to play, but Russia was on him like a “Fly on Stink!”

I have to say that as I pointed out many months ago, “He was wrong for the position!” He had no desire to work properly with Russia and he had no desire to be here in the first place. Russia knew this and Russia immediately went after him. He walked into Russia and showed weakness and a lack of respect and hence he never had a chance…

Lets see what I posted in the past:

McFaul or is it McFart: Russia wants to know…
Today is Backpedal Day For McFaul and the USA Government: Damage Control Time…
McFaul May Remember that he needs to Present his Credentials First…
Russia Bitch Slaps the U.S. ambassador to Russia…

Here is something that I wrote awhile back…

The newly-appointed U.S. ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul came to Russia and instead of going to work and meeting the Kremlin, he immediately called together the Russian opposition and the opposition media and had a meeting. He seemed to have forgotten why he came to Russia! Or did he?

A long time ago I named McFaul, The McFart, because there always was a bad smell in the room when he appeared. It looks like that nickname holds true and this is the person that America sent to Russia, to continue the reset…

Looks more like he was sent to Russia to continue the payoff of the opposition and reignite the games of politics. I know that Russia is on to him and his stink and I really do not think that unless he changes his attitude and tactics that he will last long…

He has a past with Russia that may catch up to him. His ties with Yeltsin have deep roots…

I did not mix words and even try to give McFaul a benefit of the doubt. I knew him from the past and I knew why he was in Russia. He has played games for months here and I really though he was smarter than to come to the enemies territory. He must of had some serious debt to pay back to someone in the States…

Michael McFaul wrote in his Twitter that he will quit the post of US Ambassador to Russia soon after the Sochi Olympics.

I thought Twittering a goodbye, it was a fitting end for McFaul!

    The fury surrounding President Barack Obama’s former top Russia adviser Michael McFaul marks an inauspicious beginning for a man who helped “reset” Russia-US relations following Putin’s 2008 departure from the Kremlin.

    Obama’s strategy then focused on promoting the more liberal leanings of President Dmitry Medvedev – a policy set for a rewrite with ex-KGB man Putin’s expected return for a third term in the March 4 election.

    The 48-year-old former Stanford University professor met with anti-Putin protest leaders a day after attending a protocol session at the Russian foreign ministry on January 16.

    McFaul – seemingly unaware of the controversy this was about to generate – wrote on his blog at the time that the meeting was part of Washington’s “dual track engagement” with Moscow.

    “Just as President Obama did when he visited Moscow in July 2009, all senior US officials visiting Russia make a point of meeting with both government officials and civil society leaders,” McFaul said.

    But a commentator on Russia’s main Channel One television immediately suggested that McFaul – who once penned a book called “Russia’s Unfinished Revolution” – was now on a mission to “finish the revolution”.

    Similar comments were aired over the weekend on another channel as the furore showed no signs of abating.

    A leading member of Putin’s United Russia party on Tuesday relaunched the attacks on both McFaul and the Russians whom he invited to his Spaso House residence on January 17.

    “US representatives are acting in an incredibly cynical manner,” Andrei Isayev told a rowdy session of parliament.

    “This concerns both the embassy meeting, and the very fact that McFaul, who specialises in ‘orange revolutions’, has been appointed US ambassador to Russia,” he said in reference to pro-democracy protests that swept ex-Soviet nations.

    Isayev also suggested stripping MPs who met McFaul of their right to speak in parliament until new legislative elections are held in 2016, and called for a formal ethics committee probe.

    The ruling party’s call was picked up by the populist Vladimir Zhirinovsky of the Liberal Democratic Party and several other State Duma deputies as well as leading members of the Russian media.

    “A person who does such things can only be called a traitor,” Russia Today channel editor Margarita Simonyan told one political analyst who met McFaul during a debate on NTV television.

    Russian officialdom’s anger at McFaul coincides with a wave of swelling street protests over a fraud-tainted December parliamentary ballot won by Putin’s United Russia group, albeit with a reduced majority.

    A new rally with decidedly anti-Putin slogans has been called for February 4 as Russia begins the one-month countdown to an election that should see the 59-year-old return to the presidency for at least one more six-year term.

    Putin’s relations with the Republican administration of former US President George W. Bush were marked by repeated spats that intensified with the years as the Russian leader’s crackdown on independent media and opposition groups continued.

    He accused Washington of overstepping its bounds and imposing its will on other nations. And he returned to the subject almost immediately after announcing plans to swap jobs with Medvedev in March.

    Analysts said the media and Duma attacks on McFaul appeared to be a part of a rather blunt Kremlin message to Washington that it should keep the tone of its criticism muted.

    “This campaign is designed to show that we are not afraid of the Americans, that we feel comfortable and are ready to put up a fight,” said USA-Canada Institute analyst Viktor Kremenyuk.
