Still can’t believe we lost that election.
Check it out:
During the 2012 campaign, Mitt Romney called Russia the United States’ “number one geopolitical foe”—and was widely derided by those supposedly in the know.
In a debate last fall, President Obama mocked Romney, saying, “Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida. You said Russia … the 1980s, they’re now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”
Now, with Russian president Vladimir Putin annexing Crimea, Romney’s validated. But in an op-ed today in The Wall Street Journal, the former GOP candidate made the case that it’s not just Russia on which the Obama Administration has been short-sighted. Rather, the administration has also failed to act at the right time in nations such as Syria and Egypt, among others.
