Flashback: Obama schools Romney that “Russia isn’t a threat”

Watching the Impeachment Inquiry last week I was struck by Dem witnesses’ hyperbolic concern about Russia.

Just a minute guys…

Remember the 2012 Presidential debates?

A key moment was when President Obama ridiculed Gov. Romney’s knowledge of foreign affairs.

Given the current hysteria over Russia, the clip is a classic …  try to stay calm when you watch it


Here’s more that’ll should make you scream …


Couple the “Cold War is over” with “Hit the reset button” ; “Tell Vladimir I’ll have more flexibility after the election”, and “I’m putting Joe in charge of Ukraine”.

Oh yeah, and remember pulling the missiles out of Poland?

The refusal to arm the Ukrainian government with lethal defensive weapons … in effect, ceding Crimea to the Russians?

Note: If you really want to scream, read Fiona Hill’s 2015 op-ed in the Washington Post arguing against providing lethal defensive weaponry to the Ukrainians.  Her argument: doing so would only up the ante — incentivizing the Russians to take even stronger invasive action.  Now, she argues that freezing aid to the Ukrainians for 55 days harbors the end of the world.  

Honestly, who’s the fool? Certainly not Romney.

Yep, Russia is the #1 geopolitical threat.

And, it looks to me like the escargot-munching diplomatic approach implemented by the “I’m smarter than you” administration has raised Russia’s stature and given Putin plenty of space to run wild.

Frankly, I’m ready for some folks who are proven negotiators who will say what they mean, mean what they say, and get mean when they have to …

    Didn’t Biden say that China wasn’t a threat? Obama assured us that Isis was a JV team. Didn’t the whole gang of them – Obama, Hillary, Schumer, Pelosi, Bill Clinton, etc. all emphatically preach on the need for a wall? The hypocrisy and double standards of the left is numbing.
    It has become a truism that the left (Dems and the MSM) hate Trump more than they love America. Let’s hope that the IG report, Barr and Durham really do jolt the country back to reality.

    PS I heard this the other day:

    “Political correctness is nothing but Fascism …. with a latte.”
