Who’s Laughing Now?
Vladimir Putin is laughing, along with the rest of America’s rivals. But if they didn’t have to watch their country reduced to the helpless spectator status of a second-rate nation, Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney would also be enjoying a few chuckles at the expense of the chucklehead in the White House, as well as the liberal establishment media that put him there.
Here’s how the weenies at Foreign Policy reacted to Sarah Palin’s 2008 warning that electing Obama could lead to a Russian invasion of the Ukraine:
As we’ve said before, this is an extremely far-fetched scenario. And given how Russia has been able to unsettle Ukraine’s pro-Western government without firing a shot, I don’t see why violence would be necessary to bring Kiev to heel. Watch the upcoming parliamentary elections in December to see if Moscow gets the pliable new government it wants.
The pliable new government didn’t work out because Ukrainians rebelled; now they have Russian boots in the ground. Putin knows there is zero chance Chairman Zero will do anything about it. The alleged intellectual lightweight Sarah Palin foresaw all this six years ago.
Even CNN is now admitting that Palin was on the mark, whereas the pointy-headed chin-pullers at Foreign Policy had their shoes on the wrong feet.
Romney also got laughed at for having a clue. Here’s video of a self-satisfied fool smirking at Romney for thinking Russia is a threat to American interests:
Obama accused Romney of wanting to implement the foreign policies of the 1980s (when Reagan was defeating the Soviet Union), the social policies of the 1950s (when it didn’t horrify decent people to think what kids watch on TV), and the economic policies of the 1920s (when the economy was booming). Sounds good to me.
Romney has his flaws, but no one who wouldn’t prefer him to Obama has any business in a voting booth. Palin would be even more of an improvement.
