John McCain is right about Obama completely underestimating Putin’s intensions and autocratic unwillingness to put people before his political power.
As Senator McCain noted today: “The president comparing [Putin] to a kid in the back of a classroom, I think, is very indicative of the president’s lack of appreciation of who Vladimir Putin is. He’s an old KGB colonel that has no illusions about our relationship, does not care about a relationship with the United States, continues to oppress his people, continues to act in an autocratic fashion.”
Senator McCain is also right in his assessment of Obama’s absurd claim that al Qaeda is on the run despite the evidence to the contrary with the closure of diplomatic posts in Yemen due to terror threats from APAQ. As McCain said, “You can’t say you’ve decimated the core of al Qaeda and at same time have to close these posts.”
I respect Senator McCain’s stance on Russia, al Qaeda, and foreign threats. Our current president would be wise to hear Senator McCain on these real security threats and to finally start prioritizing our tax dollars to fund our nation’s real national security needs instead of growing the Obama nanny state.
