Little action? But what about all that phone brandishing? Forward! Or something.

As Twitchy readers know, Monica Crowley zinged Obama’s sixth pitiful phone call with Vladimir Putin. But the mockery didn’t end there.

Yes. Yes Twitter can.

@TPCarney Probably something like this:
Putin: Here's what I want.
Obama: OK.
Putin: Thank you.
Obama: Did you see my brackets?— Me in Jersey (@Me_In_Jersey) April 15, 2014

And for the win:

O: "Stop it."

P: "No."

O: "Okay."

Laugh or cry? Try both.

This Twitter user reminds us not to worry. A “fix” may be on the way!

Well, that one does it. Time to weep quietly in the corner.

Eric Boehlert slammed after criticizing Christie for Obama-like explanation

Yes you read that right. Media Matters’ Dem flack Eric Boehlert is criticizing Chris Christie for borrowing President Obama’s signature move:

Wow, the partisan blinders are still securely in place.

"Christie heard about a scandal from his staff? LAME."

"Obama heard about a scandal by watching the news? Oh, coolio!"

‘Shifting blame’: Ore. Governor to sue over failed Obamacare exchange

Apparently Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber thinks so. A news release from his office states:

According to the Associated Press story, Oracle is confident that they are not at fault.

“Contrary to the story the State is promoting, Oracle has never led the Oregon Health Exchange project,” Oracle’s statement said. “OHA (the Oregon Health Authority) and Cover Oregon were in charge and badly mismanaged the project by consistently failing to deliver requirements in a timely manner and failing to staff the project with skilled personnel.”

The governor is trying to shift blame from where it belongs, the company said, adding it is confident an investigation would “completely exonerate Oracle.”

Sounds like they paid them on hope and change.
