Washington (CNN) -- President Barack Obama has canceled a visit to Moscow next month for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but will attend a G-20 summit in St. Petersburg, the White House announced Wednesday.
The move follows Russia's decision to grant asylum to classified leaker Edward Snowden, who had been holed up for weeks in the international transit zone of Moscow's airport since fleeing the United States for Hong Kong and then Russia.
Obama confirmed Tuesday night that he still plans to attend the G-20 summit in early September, despite calls from some lawmakers for the U.S. to boycott the gathering.
However, the White House also has said it was reconsidering the "utility" of separate talks with Putin in Moscow that were to take place before the G-20 gathering.

The bookies were already calling the thingy off after Snowden got asylum.

Things might get worse, the German opposition is demanding to put Snowden into witness protection if he testifies to the panel investigating German involvement in the NSA scandal....

Might be, but a new cold war is certainly not in our interest.

  • I don't see how the cancellation could have been avoided, and is not a bad thing anyway, and sends a message.  Going on Jay Leno paints the President as human and is not relevant.

I think it's a good idea if he doesn't go to those talks, too.   I hope he golfs every day until the end of his presidency.  I can't help seeing him as a little boy going around "fixing things" by pulling them apart and leaving them in the middle of the floor for someone else to clean up.  Nothing ever seems to get better.  I think he really is trying, but just doesn't follow through.

I think its more that he doesn't have all that much power in reality and is little more than a spokesperson for hi sparty.


like all the presidents

Not if it hurts the German government, which is the purpose of most of these panels.

Going on Jerry Springer would paint him as human too, but it would still be just as unprofessional for The President Of The United States to do such a thing!!
It's not his job to 'be human'. His job is to present himself as a professional world leader.

George Bush was just as guilty of this by going on Dr. Phil when he was in office as well as Clinton going on Letterman while Clinton still held the presidency.

That's a little too "stuffed-shirtish" for me.  Presidents are not above the rest of us.

The fact that the guys you mentioned went on their shows, that Regan would appear on shows, that Carter would appear on shows, that friggin Nixon appeared on Rowan and Martin.

It's probably just a thing they do
