How am I following Liberal logic? I’m against Putin and Obama. That’s as a committed, long term, principled Conservative and not a passing Putin fad. Putin is an autocrat who kills journalist in Russia, intimidates the Baltic States, Poland, Ukraine, and Georgia. You may think he’s a okay. I don’t. You can oppose Obama and not want to see Putin or Obama do long term harm to America.
You cannot blame Putin for putting Russia first. You cannot blame Italians for waving the Italian flag. You cannot blame Mexicans for wanting to take back what they believe is theirs. You cannot blame the French for thinking France is the best nation on earth.
It's called nationalism. We Americans should try it sometime. Without it someone else takes control.
