Can you hear that? It’s the sound of a man so reluctant to admit he was wrong about something that he’s running out of spin. Asked on Tuesday whether we’re seeing a new Cold War emerge between the United States and Russia, Barack Obama unflinchingly insisted, “No, it’s not a new Cold War. What it is, is a very specific issue related to Russia’s unwillingness to recognize that Ukraine can chart its own path.”
Ah, so…a Cold War then?
What an ignoramus. I like how he forcefully pointed his finger while answering that question. BHO couldn’t have possibly been more wrong about the Putin/Russia threat, and now, the chickens are coming home to roost on his empty head.
This week, Obama’s State Department released its annual report on international compliance related to arms control agreements. It determined that Russia has violated the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty that President Reagan signed with Mikhail Gorbachev in 1987. That’s all fine and dandy, but Republicans have been pointing this out for YEARS now. It’s great to hear that Obama has finally arrived at the party and determined that Putin violated the nuke treaty, but wouldn’t it have been better to do something about that back in 2012? Oh, that’s right, Barack was busy running for re-election (and promising Putin he’d have more flexibility in his second term, too).
Hey, here’s someone that seemed to really know what was going on at the time. Remember this Mitt guy?
It doesn’t matter how many times you watch that clip; it’s equally devastating every time you see it. So while Barry Obama continues to politely suggest that Russia should be “good neighbors” with Ukraine, the fact is that the U.S. president’s six years of passive-aggressive talk and limp-as-a-dink sanctions against The KGB Thug are the very reasons he’s being walked all over.
Perhaps if he spent less time trying to come up with descriptive phrases to avoid calling this a new Cold War, he might actually be able to craft a strategy that displays American strength.
But why bother at all when he can shoot pool and drink beer instead?
