For the Russinas this makes sense. Their economy is 75% crime anyway.
Nuclear-armed Iran; check. North Korea posturing; check. Worsening relations with Russia; check. General Ham fired (please google that, please please please). Yep, our leader is doing awesome with foreign relations, as promised.
I thought after obama and hilary's efforts everybody in the world would love us? Didn't hilary say she was going to fix relations with Russia? Hmmmm
Didn't mircophones pick up Obama stating to Russia's foreign minister months ago..."this is my last election, I'll have more flexibility after the election." Another failed promise.
The Obama administration is horribly inept when it comes to foreign relations. The reason is that he doesn't operate from a platform of strength but rather inconsistency and weakness.
You know, for all of you blaming Obama, that's just not the case. Doesn't matter who is in office, Putin is slowly return Russia back to a controlled state. He's jailing dissidents, he's enacting restrictive laws, he's rigging elections. This is just another in a long line of changes to come, and nobody in US office is going to change that. This is a Russian matter. America doesn't have to be the center of every international decision.
I would think the GOP would be happy with this reduction in money going to Russia. Cut, cut, cut.
Hope and change and change and hope. Russian's aren't buying it either.
Funny how the tin foil hat party calls Obama a Muslim, when he is trying to get along with the Middle East. But when he doesn't get along they say his foriegn policey is troublesome. Remembr last year they were calling Obama a Communists for trying to talk to the Russsian Ambassador in private?
This is impossible. Hilary pushed the reset button. Or maybe the mistranslation really made the Russians angry. Things were promised to change for the better. This is impossible.
