Obama to visit Sweden instead of meeting with Putin. A Limerick.

Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin
Headline in Washington Post: Obama cancels summit meeting with Putin.
Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there. Instead of visiting Putin in Moscow, the president will add a stop in Sweden to his early September travel itinerary.

Crybaby, why go to Sweden?
Putin will not give you Snowden?
Air Force One is no toy
You’re a man, not a boy.
Face it Obama, you’re beaten.

Why go to Sweden?
Is it to learn of the success of the 25% VAT (National sales tax)?
Is it their success in rooting out home schooling?
Is it their solid support of the Palestinians over the Israelis?
Is it confusion between Sweden and Norway? Norway, not Sweden gives out the Nobel Peace Prize, and he needs people who still admire him.
Is it to learn more about green energy?
Is it because Sweden has the ideal welfare state where even the conservatives are for it?
Is it because everybody belongs to a union in Sweden, even the employers have a union?
Is it to show Putin he is having more flexibility after the election?
Whatever the reason, it is not leadership.
