You remember the “Russian Reset,” right? That was the beginning of the Obama administration’s Smart Diplomacy measures that brought peace in Eastern Europe, peace in the Middle East, and new alliances with formerly hostile countries like Iran and North Korea.
That was Hillary presenting the “Reset Button” to the Russians signaling a new era of peace, understanding, and cooperation.
How’s that working out?
About as well as reaching out to and understanding the Muslims.
But never fear, Hillary is defending The Reset.
The statement [defending the reset]comes as Russia, under President Vladimir Putin, has distanced itself from the United States, and the country is widely seen by U.S. and European analysts as linked to the downing of a passenger airliner earlier this month in Ukraine.
“What I think I demonstrate in the book, is that the reset worked,” Clinton told guest host John Harwood on NPR’s “On Point” on Thursday during a conversation about her new memoir, “Hard Choices.” “It was an effort to try to obtain Russian cooperation on some key objectives while (Dmitry) Medvedev was president.”
Clinton later said the reset “succeeded” and was meant to be “a device to try to refocus attention on the transactional efforts that we needed to get done with the Russians.”
Big success. Another foreign policy win for the Obama administration, Hillary, John Kerry, Democrats, and all those who hate the U.S.
This is the woman that Democrats want to be President.
