It’s 2012 all over again, but this time, the roles are reversed. With the Obama administration officially imposing sanctions and expelling 35 Russian diplomats from Washington, D.C., Obama seems poised to repeat the Cold War, whether or not this is a fitting response to alleged hacking.
Now, it’s President-elect Donald Trump’s turn to repeat President Obama’s words to Mitt Romney in 2012: “The 1980s are calling to ask for their foreign policy back.” It turned out that Romney was right in his warnings about Russia. Will Trump’s rejection of those warnings be just as ill-fated as Obama’s dismissal of Russia in 2012?
No matter what the future holds, it’s time for some Republican schadenfreude — watch Obama tell Romney to stop worrying about Russia here. Now, he’s eating his words. The president looks like a fool for retaliating against the very same Russia he dismissed as a non-threat four years ago.
2012 called and asked for everyone to recall this Obama flashback
