Hey, his Secretary of State gave the Russians a big hulkin’ red rest button — what more do you want?

There’s nothing stopping Putin for going after the rest of Ukraine, if he wants to.

Where was THIS Romney during his election?

This is like a guy coming back and saying “and another thing...” 20 minutes after admitting he lost the argument.

You got it. Not just the Ukraine, but the Baltic nations, Belarus, even looking at fully indy nations, such as Poland. The only nations he will most likely leave alone are those with majority Muslims.

Poking Russia in the eye isn’t the answer neither.

The answer is coming up with contingencies to reduce Russia’s leverage..like producing more energy here to supply Europe. But not a word from anyone about doing this.

Obama is too busy finishing his bracket picks.

He has the green light, and he knows it. If you’re Putin, you gotta be licking your chops. Three years to take/do whatever you want.

Oh, you think you’re so clever. Well, let me just tell you, while I do not currently have a scathing retort, you check your email periodically for a doozy.

I'm kinda likin' Romney getting in these digs on Obama. For too long we've put up with Democrat Presidents NEVER GOING AWAY and criticizing anything the opposition does.

Nice to see a little turnabout, even if it is only a former candidate.

Too bad that backstabber Mitt took time off
from his statism to send his surrogates after the Palin
family EVEN AFTER THE GOVERNOR WAS THE CANDIDATE.

Mitt had Obama on the ropes at one point but didn’t have the fortitude to put him down for the count. Real leaders don’t miss opportunities to finish off their opponents. I question Mitt’s ability to deal with Putin.

Yeah, but he’s going to wait until after Barraco Barner is elected for life in 2016.
