Remember Obama Mocking Romney Over Russia Concerns?
The Blaze ^ | 2 Mar 2014 | Dave Urbanski

Posted on 03/02/2014 6:51:47 AM PST by mandaladon

First Sarah Palin was proven right about her Russia-invading-Ukraine prediction she made — and got mocked for — in 2008. Now it’s Mitt Romney’s turn to take a bow for having “clear eyes” on Russia’s future threat potential.

Fox News’ Bret Baier opened a segment of his show Friday night by flashing back to an October 2012 presidential debate where President Obama ridiculed Republican presidential nominee Romney about his concern over Russia’s “geo-political” threat.

“You said Russia. Not Al Qaida. You said Russia,” Obama said regarding biggest threats. “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because…the cold war’s been over for 20 years.”

Romney offered a powerful retort: “Russia, I indicated, is a geopolitical foe…and I said in the same paragraph I said and Iran is the greatest national security threat we face. Russia does continue to battle us in the U.N. time and time again. I have clear eyes on this. I’m not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Mr. Putin…”

I’d like to hear a reporter ask, if Obama thinks that given the aggressive actions of Putin in the past 10yrs or so, if threat of a Cold War is just something in the past.

He needs to move to CO and light up a doobie, play Xbox and drink Starbucks. Having him as “president” is like having a 20 year old, slacker Ithaca University “European art major” dropout.

It doesn’t matter how wrong Skippy is, or how many times, or how he displays his arrogance and hubris.

His acolytes will simply close their eyes and ears and play the race card, pointing fingers and shrilly accusing his critics of racism.

I count Bill O’Reilly as the latest member of this crowd.

I wonder what Skippy has on him..?

INCONVENIENT FACTOID---Obomba told Putin he'd have "more flexibility" AFTER his 2012 election---knowing the voter fraud apparat was in place, knowing he'd win......even as the campaign had not even begun.

============================================

Obama was an unmitigated fraud when he first popped up in 08....said he was a "community organizer"----coached to within an inch of his life to say the right things:

<><> said he wanted to be another Reagan (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down),

<><> portrayed himself as a Global Savior,

<><> canonized w/ the Nobel Peace Prize.

IO's 2008 PR person---Anita "Mao Kiss-up" Dunn---later said they let
the media (voters) know only what THEY wanted them to know about Ohaha.

=================================================

Everything about Obama is a fraud......as far back as 2008, he duped Americans into believing in the healthcare-destroyer known as Obamacare. Five years in the making and Obama still cannot control the Godzillian monster he created----rampaging over our healthcare system. The damage being done is palpable.

======================================================

INCONVENIENT FACTOID---Ohaha was spawned from the viper pit of Chicago criminal politics---our WH is/was infested w/ Chicago criminals---these lowlifes never never met a decent, honest person in their entire lives.

BTW, Mayor Daley's former chief of staff, Valerie Jarrett, hired Obama's wife, Michelle, to work in Chicago City Hall. (Jarret is now ensconced in Washington, as Obama's chief policy advisor----in gangland vernacular, chief policy advisor means "wire-transfer artist").

THIS MADE ME LAUGH OUT LOUD shortly after quitting his powerful WH job as Obama's COS, Rahm held a presser declaring he "just remembered" he really, Really wanted to be Mayor of Chicago. Then Rahm announced he had magically "raised" $10 million for his campaign in "just a matter of weeks." (waiting for hysterical laughter to die down). Ya gotta wonder how much Wall Street Rahm wired offshore when Obama put him in charge of the entire US Treasury. Read on.

CONNECTING THE DOTS: Obama's stranglehold on Treasury via COS Rahm Emanuel's dual role

THE TARGETING PAPER TRAIL BEGINS: Soon as they occupied the WH, Obama and the Chicago con artists (a) took control of the US Census; (b) Obama placed his COS Rahm Emanuel in control of the US Dept of the Treasury (the IRS).

THE SMOKING GUN---WSJ REPORT--On Jan 20, 2009 Timothy Geithner was appointed Obama's Secy of the Treasury. But within three weeks, the Obama White House tightened its grip on Treasury. Obama put his COS, Rahm Emanuel, in charge of Treasury---Rahm Emanuel's dual role was an unusual move.

When he got to Treasury, WH COS Rahm Emanuel was so involved in the inner workings of the Treasury that the phrase "Rahm wants it" had become an unofficial mantra among subservient govt staffers, prostrate in obeisance, scurrying to accede to Rahm's wishes, according to Treasury government officials. Reported by WSJ / 05/31/09

Actually...the Russian resurgence, closing this....the fifth dialectic (?), was accurately described and predicted in the mid 1980's by a KBG defector who authored "New Lies for Old". (name escapes)

All these decades we rejoiced at the hand with the hammer was withdrawing, but blind to the fact that the next blow was simply being readied. All these decades the Soviet has facilitated the happy transfer of capital and technology east, by the west, by making nice. Now they have it; the hammer falls; and it's onward to world communist domination.

Flashback 2012:

Obama to Medvedev: "After the Election, I'll Have More Flexibility."

27 March 2012

Obama was caught by an open mic telling Russian Pres. Medvedev, After my election, I'll have more flexibility with respect to the missile defense system.

BOR has consistently given Obama “the benefit of the doubt” despite the mountain of ever increasing evidence that Obama is unfit, unworthy, and untrustful.

IMO BOR put his desire for interviews ahead of “watching out for the folks”.

Bill O’Reilly is a real case of ignorance. His support for King Obama is without doubt. This pompous fool should be kicked off Fox.

******************************************************************

Bill O’Reilly also called Obama “a patriot”—now just how obtuse and how much of a “pinhead” can O’Reilly be?

And O’Reilly is definitely NOT “watching out for the folks” as he so frequently says—he’s watching out for Bill O’Reilly above all.

Maybe a modern eight year old but NOWHERE NEAR the maturity of an eight year old of a hundred or more years ago. Actually you may have even insulted today’s eight year olds.

The Chi/Gang are a super-strain of malevolent con artists.

Reminds me of the psychological weapon called "gaslighting"....taken from the film noir classic, "Gaslight."

Charles Boyer's character was a glib con artist, murderer and thief---he ingratiated himself w/ Ingrid Bergman, and married her, in order to move into her house----a house she inherited from her murdered aunt (murdered by Boyer for her hidden valuables).

Later the term "gaslighting" became a term to describe a pattern of psychological abuse in which the victims are gradually manipulated into doubting his/her own reality---involves the con artists using emotional gimmicks---cons often playacting as "victims" so as to dupe and disorient the targets experiencing the catastrophic effects of abusive behavior.

The desired effect of "gaslighting" is to maintain the abuser's image as a sympathetic person, while simultaneously priming the disoriented victim to believe that he/she is to blame for the ruinous mind-bending effects of their calculated mistreatment.

The Chi/crowd is an all-encompassing, well-oiled gaslighting machine......adept at co-opting the entire socio/political structure, duping the MSM and academia into becoming compliant accomplices. Democrats become prostrate----as they willingly march in lockstep, in obeisance to Obama.

Did backstabber Romney APOLOGIZE to Gov. Palin yet
for attacking her? No. The worm Romney just wants credit for
what SHE SAID.

"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"
