With the Democrats trying to paint Donald Trump as some kind of Russian stooge to delegitimize his historic election, let’s revisit the following CNS News report for some much-needed context:
The reset button was supposed to symbolize America’s willingness to wipe the 2008 slate clean. We would not hold Russia’s invasion of the Republic of Georgia against them. It was a short, sharp clash that only served to show the former Soviet satellite-in fact, all the former Soviet regions–that the Russian bear still had sharp claws and big teeth.
As we look ahead, however, we will find that the reset button will figure more prominently. From that moment on, the Russian policy of this administration was to accommodate, temporize, forgive and forget.
With the Russians in the Crimea, we can point to that adolescent stunt of Hillary’s in 2009. Struggling to be more likeable, she forgot the importance of being respected.
The Russians are unlikely to respect a country that doesn’t respect itself. All of this brings back memories of the last U.S. administration so eager to be liked. Jimmy Carter spoke of the need to get over our “inordinate fear of communism” and its lead sponsor, the USSR. The Soviets treated that speech like a starter’s pistol for a footrace. They ran rampant in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
Watch as Hillary Clinton presents a “reset” button from Obama and Biden to the Russian foreign minister in a misguided attempt to improve relations with Russia. However, the “reset button” is misspelled and says “over charge” instead!
