When Hillary Clinton pulled that stupid stunt with a Reset Button agenda at the beginning of her tenure as SoS, some of us felt a little sick. Tensions were at an all-time low with Russia and Russia itself was a shadow of its former self. WTH did we need a Reset? Why have we been reducing our military and our nuclear arsenal when Russia has been increasing theirs? Why does Russia now have a larger nuclear arsenal than ours? Before the fall of the Berlin Wall, this would have gotten a US president impeached but younger Americans and lefties everywhere no longer fear Communist Russia. That’s a mistake.
Everyone knew the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the USSR was due to Ronald Reagan but the world of liberal ideology has refused to recognize his greatness or how he brought millions out of the dark world of communism. Well, some remember. Especially some people who lived under communism. That’s why Poland reveres the memory of Reagan. But you’ll notice the increasingly-liberal Nobel Prize committee never gave him a Peace Prize. Terrorist Yasser Arafat, well yes. But not Ronald Reagan, wrong ideology, wrong politics.
The Obama administration has only weakened the USA in the world and empowered Russia and Putin. We’re going to have to live with these mistakes, the question is what will be the price we must pay for the naïve Kumbiya world view of Obama and the left.
Liberals and liberal media want the world to forget him and the many achievements of this modest man, who was willing to let others take credit or the spotlight, such as Gorbachev, who had no choice but to be a “reformer” of an empty shell of a nation. Gorbachev was nothing. http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/volokh-conspiracy/wp/2014/11/09/the-25th-anniversary-of-the-fall-of-the-berlin-wall/ and http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2014/11/the-berlin-wall-25-take-1.php
