Putin Asks Parliament to Send Troops to Crimea

Via CNN:

Russian President Vladimir Putin asked the upper house of parliament to send Russian troops into Ukraine’s Crimea region to normalize the political situation there, the Kremlin said Saturday. Due to the “extraordinary situation on Ukraine,” Putin said, there are threats to the lives of Russian citizens and Russian military personnel based in the Crimean region. . .

I wonder if President Obama regrets saying Putin slouches and looks like “the bored kid in the back of the classroom.” Or if the president regrets saying it's Putin's "shtick" to want to "look like the tough guy"?

Because Vladimir is now the bored guy at the back of parliament whose tough-guy shtick is to invade Ukraine.
