As always when I discuss Russia, I need to preface it with the wise words of the Greatest President in American History. Remember when The Lightworker said this, all the way back in 2012?
The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.
In six short years, they’ve all gone from “Hurr hurr, Romney is stuck in the ’80s” to “OMG, my phone charger is missing, Putin stole it!” It’s just odd to me that they think Obama took care of this guy, and yet he stole an election right from under Obama’s nose. Doublethink is your best entertainment value.
I didn’t like Putin back when Obama was dismissing him as a threat, and I don’t like Putin now. I don’t like to see Trump palling around with that dissident-murdering tyrant.** But unlike my moral, ethical, and intellectual betters on the left, I don’t see Putin lurking around every corner and hiding under the bed.
Of course, the Russians will cease to be a problem again the minute another Democrat steps into the Oval Office. As bad as things are, at least it hasn’t come to that yet.
**Although I also recognize that Trump is tougher on Putin, policy-wise, than Obama was.
