Russia is taking over

The Obama administration is surprised by the Russian attacks and bombing of the stronghold of the Free Syrian Army, just after Vladimir Putin met with President Obama. The president, by his ineffectual and feckless foreign policy, is allowing Russia to extend its influence further in the Middle East, while he and his administration once again are surprised and without counter moves.

The result is as if the United States were inviting Russia to take over the Middle East. It’s another example of the president leading from behind, way behind. What do you think our Middle East allies are thinking about their alliances?

Remember that during the presidential debates, when Mitt Romney indicated the most dangerous threat to the United States was Russia, Obama disagreed with him.

For those of you who voted for Obama, do you regret it now?
