Obama to blame for bad foreign relations
Upon reading Pat Buchanan’s “Can Trump and Putin avoid Second World War,” Opinion, Jan. 6, I again reflected on the following: Obama’s expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, the probe into DNC Russian hacking and the (seldom-discussed) ugly, exposed truths about the Democrats. Perhaps we should examine Obama’s true motivation for these urgent actions, given he’s had nearly eight years to question Russian’s cyber-interference?
While Obama has worked hard to cultivate outrage about this (even before the intelligence report was in), where is the outrage about his interference in Israel/Netanyahu’s re-election? Not only did he support this interference, he used $350,000 taxpayer money to promote it. How’s that for the “pot and kettle” phenomena? Further, his legacy of negative, foreign relations could encourage a cold (or actual) war, especially with Russia. This may serve him for delegitimizing Trump/the Republican victories, but since when should our national security hinge on a president’s lack of accountability and ego?
