Wonder if the guy watched the 2012 Presidential debates when Obama mocked Romney and declared the cold war to be over …
On the Sunday talk shows, outgoing CIA Director John Brennan had some sharp criticism and warnings for President-elect Trump.
Brennan said that Trump is a bit naive and doesn’t have a “full understanding” of Russia’s power and the threat to the world posed by Russia’s aggressive actions.
Brennan failed to mention that — up to a couple of months ago — President Obama didn’t consider Russia to be much of a threat.
I wish the shows’ anchors had asked Brennan if he remembered the 2012 Presidential debates?
A key moment was when President Obama ridiculed Gov. Romney’s knowledge of foreign affairs.
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” and “Tell Vladimir I’ll have more flexibility after the election” …
Oh yeah, and remember pulling the missiles out of Poland?
And, the vanishing red lines in the Ukraine and Syria?
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.
If Mitt had one, we probably wouldn’t be in this fix now … he wouldn’t have been asleep at the switch for most of the past 4 years.
