Why do some Republicans blame Obama, and not Putin for Ukraine?

It seems some Republicans have distorted the geopolitical reality that has existed in eastern Europe between the West and Russia since the end of the Cold War, to be a result of President Obama's own "failings" or him appearing weak. This obviously is not the case, and I'd argue Putin is only motivated by geopolitical motives, such as his proposed Eurasian Union and the potential isolation of his Black Sea fleet -- his response would be no different than if a US Republican were president or if the US had a "strong" president. Let us be reminded that Putin invaded Georgia in 2008 when Republican strongman and hero George W. Bush was president; and invaded Czechoslovakia in 1968 when tough guy LBJ was in the oval office. Every event in the world is not correlated to the US or the actions of it's president. Stop blaming President Obama, and start blaming the reckless and irrational man who just invaded Ukraine's territory and is hurling Europe toward a major war. What say you?
