Russia the ‘Regional Power’

Obama belittles the threat.

ABC’s Jon Karl handed Barack Obama a tough question Tuesday, asking, “[D]o you think Mitt Romney had a point when he said that Russia is America’s biggest geopolitical foe? Obviously, Obama’s pride won’t let him admit his opponent had a point, so he rambled on trying to sound like he actually knows what he’s saying instead. Among his pontifications, he declared, "Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors – not out of strength, but out of weakness.” Wrong. Russia is absolutely a geopolitical threat to the U.S., and Obama is the one displaying weakness. “Russia’s actions are a problem,” Obama conceded, but, “They don’t pose the number one national security threat to the United States. I continue to be much more concerned when it comes to our security with the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan.” If a nuclear weapon is detonated in Manhattan, you better believe that the fingerprints of Putin’s surrogates in Syria and Iran will be all over that device.
