Dissing Obama ... Dismissing Hillary

Barack Obama promised no preconditions when negotiating with foreign leaders. Hillary Clinton touted the new administration’s  “smart power.” Put them together and, according to Breitbart , this is the response America is getting:

Russia could use bases for its strategic bombers on the doorstep of the United States in Cuba and Venezuela to underpin long-distance patrols in the region, a senior air force officer said Saturday.
"This is possible in Cuba," General Anatoly Zhikharev, chief of the Russian air force's strategic aviation staff, told the Interfax-AVN military news agency.

The comments were the latest signal that Moscow intends to project its military capability in far-flung corners of the globe despite a tight defence budget and hardware that experts consider in many respects outdated.

If the will of the two states is there, the political will, then we are prepared to fly there" to the bases in Cuba, the agency quoted Zhikharev as saying.
The general also said that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez had offered to let Russian strategic bombers use a military airfield on La Orchila island, a military base off the west coast of the country.

Looks like we have an equation: Obama’s “no preconditions” + Hillary’s “smart power” = other countries do whatever the hell they want.

I am beginning to have serious doubts that Obama is the smartest president in our history and that Hillary is the smartest woman in the world.

But maybe it is just me. Oh, and the Russians, and the Chinese, and the Venezuelans, and the Cubans and….
