Obama: I Didn’t Underestimate Putin, I Overestimated America

It is always difficult if you are a man-god and Lightworker to rule a fractious people who simply aren’t very bright and of whom a substantial number are downright backward, if not evil personified. This is the subtext of Barack Obama’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopolous.

STEPHANOPOULOS: What does that tell you about what President Putin is trying to do right now? And I– I think back to 2012 when Mitt Romney talked about Russia being the number one geostrategic threat, you kinda dismissed him in the second debate–

OBAMA: I did.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you underestimate Vladimir Putin?

OBAMA: You know, I don’t think I underestimated him, but I think that I underestimated the degree to which, in this new information age, it is possible for misinformation for cyber hacking and so forth to have an impact on our open societies, our open systems, to insinuate themselves into our democratic practices in ways that I think are accelerating.

What a load of crap.

When the Obama administration came into office is was relentlessly slagging the Bush Administration for being too hard on Russia and for antagonizing Russia. You heard the phrase “Cold Warrior” over and over in referring to Bush’ national security team. Condoleezza Rice was a Soviet specialist, it is obvious now that she recognized exactly what she was dealing with. In short order we had the famous “Russia Reset.”

What has happened since then? Obama has pursued a policy of appeasement with Russia. Russia was brought in to act as the administration’s intermediary to cut a nuclear deal with Iran. What happened? Russia used it to the advantage of their new found ally in the Middle East. We thought they were going to help in Syria? What happened? They’ve carried out a relentless war against the people we are supporting. They annexed Crimea. They fomented a civil war in Ukraine. They’ve engaged in endless provocations in the Baltic States. They tried to engineer a coup in Monetnegro and assassinate the Serbian prime minister.

None of that, one one little bit, had anything to do with Russian disinformation in America. It was 100% due to fecklessness, hubris, stupidity, and an inherent dislike of America that is endemic in the Democrat party.

If Obama did not underestimate Russia then he is a bigger tool of Putin than Trump will ever be.

    What a retarded article based on controlled opposition nonsense of who hates Russia more…..

    Why complain when Obama has done everything in his power to weaken Russia by attacking their proxies in the middle east and Europe? He simply expanded the fuching fake war on terror BS by arming ISIS “moderate rebels” and Nazis in Ukraine to do the work rather than send American troops to do it.

    You sir are a hopeless moron, besides a warmonger. :roll:
