An Adolescent in the White House
To figure out Putin, Obama only needs to look in a mirror.
Arnold Ahlert: “As for Obama, if he wishes to see the principal impetus behind Putin’s urges, a mirror is all that is necessary. It was Obama who cancelled the missile defense agreement with Poland and the Czech Republic made by former President George W. Bush. It was his first move in the 'reset' between the two nations and Obama pushed it to undo the ‘damage’ created by the former president. The reality that such damage was precipitated by Russia’s invasion of Georgia was irrelevant to the man who doubled down on his acquiescence in 2012, when he promised Russian President Dmitry Medvedev he would have even ‘more flexibility’ following his reelection. Toss in the Syrian debacle where Putin played the president like a drum, and it becomes apparent that the only reason Putin didn’t invade Ukraine even sooner was because he didn’t want to spoil the Olympic festivities in Sochi. … We have an adolescent in the White House. He was put there twice by a brigade of like-minded adolescents who apparently believed that fatuous rhetoric and sober reasoning are interchangeable concepts.”
