Hillary Clinton, Wonder Woman?

untitledIt will be, to say the least, a very strange state of affairs indeed if America is saved from foreign policy disaster by the likes of Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden.

Just as the thinking, moral people of the world stood slack-jawed reading the news about President Barack Obama’s shameful “secret letter” to Dima Medvedev, seeming to sell the Eastern European allies down the river, Hillary Clinton popped up in Brussels and declared:   “We should continue to open NATO’s door to European countries such as Georgia and Ukraine and help them meet NATO standards.”

In other words, her very first visit to Europe the new Secretary of State poked Medvedev right in the eye, using language very similar to that relied on by Biden in his first European sojourn as vice president af few weeks earlier.

Let’s be clear:  Compared to the notion of either Ukraine or Georgia, much less both of them, joining NATO, the notion of missile defense in Eastern Europe looks to Russia like a garden party.  There simply is no more provocative issue on which Russia can be confronted, and Clinton had no hesitation in pressing the hot button.

If she goes on like this, Clinton could go down in history as one of America’s greatest diplomats and possibly even the savior of modern Russia.

Go Hillary, go!

  1. Clinton is a blithering moron. Her staff can’t get Russian right, which is a surprise considering they are a bunch of Leftist.

  2. Why is the US apologizing to Russia? This is unbelievable. Clinton has thrown human rights in Russia under the bus.

  3. BO’s pick of her for SOC and Panetta as CIA director shows his lack of knowledge/concern about foreign policy. It’s Jimmy Carter all over again.

  4. She presented her little “reset button” to the Russian foreign minister today. What an idiot.

    When you are blithering idiots every thug on the planet will rejoice. Re-read Jimmy Carter’s years when a group of rag tag nothings overran our embassy for 444 days with no serious reprisal. Carter was an inspiration to terrorists. His legacy lingers on.

    The moronic spineless hard left have captured our foreign policy. Obama is pursuing his socialist agenda of health care “reform”, carbon cap and trade(a brutal tax on the energy industry) and more money down the education rat hole while the stock market grinds down day after day after processing his empty suit idiocy.

    Obama’s foreign policy is a disaster and the Russians are loving it.

  5. “Obama’s foreign policy is a disaster and the Russians are loving it.”

    Im sorry but i dont see any evidence of it. First of all, nobody traded Georgia and Ukraine today. In fact, Clinton stressed to Russians that Baltic States and Georgia are priority in US national interests (oddly there was no mention of Ukraine in that list). And she has touched on Georgia crises more than couple of times. Lets be reasonable here and hold on with throwing stones. Nobody in Russia, except some lunatics like Ragozin and Zirinovsky are rejoicing in general. Their country is crumbling at the speed of light, their factories close and the number of unemployed are catastrophic, etc. And please dont forget that Obamas Russian handling is heavily influenced by his republican buddies like McCain and Lugar. Us is playing a diplomatic game (and gambling on it) before the storm kicks off in Iran. Hold your horses, its too early to tell, and nothing in general was done or said for the Russian to rejoice.

  6. love her humor and recovery. building relationship was her goal and it was more than met.
    when you take the time to read or hear the entire exchange it is a very positive encounter.
    Hillary rises, once again, above her critics.

  7. I would note here that it’s been Robert Gates – by no measure a dove on Russia – that has been among the most vocal recently for improved ties. I, personally will wait this one out a few months before making judgements.

  8. Georgia is _not_ a European country: it lies behind the Great Caucasian ridge being the border between Europe and Asia. Poor cuckold Hillary should learn geography better!

    • You poor sap, actually Georgia is very EUROPEAN by its traditions, national character, history, culture, and mind set. Georgia is more European than Bulgaria or Romania in this case.

      • have you ever seen a map of Europe? i mean ever? what about reading some history of the Europe and involvement of Romania in World Wars? as not being stressed with reading more than 100 yrs ago.

  9. Georgia is partially in Europe (just like Russia).

  10. Eugene, Georgia is a western country by desire, there is more to being western than geography.

    You can do better than that.

    Luis….“And please dont forget that Obamas Russian handling is heavily influenced by his republican buddies like McCain and Lugar”…do you practice moronic comments or what?

    • why moronic? why sudden insults to the fellow blogger? Not a nice counter argument dear penny. Its not moronic, its realistic, down to earth, un-euphoric :) Well if you didnt know, McCain and Senator Lugar are both advising Obama on Russia.

    • > Eugene, Georgia is a western country by desire

      In this case, the Central African Empire also was “a western country by desire” since the cannibal Emperor Bocassa emulated Napoleon I’s coronation ceremony. :-)

  11. Eugine, Georgia is by ethnicity a european country.

  12. actually Georgia is very EUROPEAN by its traditions, national character, history, culture, and mind set. Georgia is more European than Bulgaria or Romania in this case.

  13. Luis, Hillary is over at the State Dept. now with no input from Lugar or McCain. Get real.

  14. Great Caucasian ridge being the border between Europe and Asia.

    It looks like Eugene is entitled to his own facts not only in politics, but in geography as well. Yes, Zhenechka – whatever you say!

  15. I’m waiting for Hillary and the Vladiator to have a little ‘pillow talk’. His judo just might come in handy here, I’ve heard she’s pretty handy at lamp tossing.

  16. barb,
    and 10 years from now she will tell the story how she had to endure a fist-fight with Russian ruler
    /sarcasm

  17. Speaking of Hillary Clinton:

    There is bad news about her husband.

    It is opined that Bill Clinton committed racist hate crimes, and I am not free to say anything further about it.

    This post shows that there are certainly crazies on the right as well. If you are not “free” to say anything – then be quiet and don’t embarrass yourself.

    The only comforting thought that there are many more crazies on the left…
