    They still hate us, but now they’re not afraid of us too

    They still hate us, but now they’re not afraid of us too

    The breadth and depth of the Obama’s administrations screwed up priorities is straggering.

    It’s not bad enough that they are on the wrong side of big government history domestically, we have witnessed a wholesale abdication of power abroad in a myriad of ways.

    This story at Commentary, about increased intimidation of U.S. diplomats in Russia and the lack of U.S. response, speaks volumes about the level to which we have dropped:

    One U.S. official from the Moscow-based National Democratic Institute allegedly had a photo of him doctored to make it look like he was laying down next to an underage girl. The photo appeared in the Russian media, along with accusations from a Russian woman that the official had raped her 9-year-old daughter.

    And yet, according to intelligence officials, the Obama administration has not seemed to take these incidents seriously.

    “We are concerned about the acts of intimidation as well as their record on previous agreements and other activities,” former Sen. Kit Bond, who served on the Senate Intelligence Committee until 2010, told the Times. “It’s a real concern, I’ve raised it. It’s not the intelligence committee that fails to understand the problem. It’s the Obama administration.”

    I don’t have to wait for the response:  “He got bin Laden!”

    One good decision does not make up for the collapse of the U.S. on the international stage.

    1. Hillary is more interested in her NEXT job than this one.
    2. They believed the hoax and see nothing wrong with exposing a pedophile.
    3. The president was on the golf course when the news came in, and then he had to go talk to those awful Republicans and, anyway, the Russians are good fasci – uh, Communi – uh, people and they would never do anything wrong.
    4. Russia? Is that near Cleveland?
    5. Don’t worry about a thing. We’re just lulling them in to a false sense of security. Then, when they least expect it, Zing! We’ll write a stern letter.
    6. Framed a diplomat for something? Obviously he didn’t know who to pay off. Idiot. That will teach him to tangle with the Chicago machine! Moscow machine? Really? Who knew?

    […] an answer to this question either, but it’s worth asking: why has the Obama administration allowed the Russian government to bully and slander our diplomats?There really is no such thing as a free lunch, even in school.August 6 was the […]
