One of the worst things about being a conservative is that when you're right no one apologizes to you for it - you have to beat people over the head to remind them that your predictions came true.
So let's do a little of that now that Putin has disdainfully spit on Hillary Clinton's “Russian Reset” policy and taken advantage of Obama's naive and incompetent foreign policy that had American power recede from the global stage:
New glorious age of Soviet expansion and American compliance, comrade! The editor of this left-wing rag is Katrina vandenHeuvel who had lots of hilarious things to say about Mitt Romney's dumb Cold War mindset:
Because the middle class is doing so wonderfully under Obama and Putin now, right? Now take a look at this headline from John McCain in 2008:
And I already posted about this from Sarah Palin:
Here's another from Al Gore's 2000 campaign manager, and DNC vice chairperson:
David Roberts is a liberal journalist who mostly whines about global warming, but took some time off to sound stupid about foreign policy here - apparently Ukrainians are also “damaged people” looking for enemies.
About the only wise thing Arianna ever advanced was Andrew Breitbart - here she makes a witless prediction:
And of course there's the “Obama for America” campaign account that quoted the producer for the Rachel Maddow show, Steve Benen:
So where did they get this talking point that Republicans are crazy “Cold Warriors”? Two years ago, nearly to the day of the Russian invasion, the Russian president at the time Dmitry Medvedev actually said Mitt Romney was stuck in a Cold War mentality - guess which political party took up the shovel-ready propaganda from those benevolent Ruskies?
More evidence that “the Democrats” aren't in any plane of reality the rest of us live in:
Wondering why Putin doesn't take us seriously? Here's a hint from the presumed Democrat presidential candidate for 2016 that all the liberals are fawning over:
But of course, the best, most embarrassing tweet comes from no one other than our imperial president himself:
This was from their 2012 debate, and Romney didn't back down on it.
Looking at these tweets, you'd almost think the Russians had been planning this expansion of their sphere of influence for years, subtly infecting the West with propaganda that weakened America's standing in the world, with the complicity of a “useful idiot” media and Democrat party. If only someone had told us all this during the last election!
