Vladimir loves Mitt
Here’s my guess as to what Vladimir Putin was whispering in Hillary Clinton’s ear (above):
“If you happen to run into that Romney fellow, Madame Secretary, please give him my highest regards.”
HERE‘s the background:
In March, Mitt Romney said Russia is “clearly” the nation’s “number one geo-political foe,” a comment that’s been widely ridiculed in a variety of circles. As Rachel [Maddow] noted last night, soon after Romney’s comment, Colin Powell said on MSNBC, “Come on, Mitt, think.”
But on the other side of the Atlantic, there’s apparently one person who was delighted by Romney’s rhetoric. His name is Vladimir Putin…
Putin was looking for an excuse to be more obstinate on missile defense, and Romney, through his foreign policy clumsiness, gave him one. By popping off on a subject he didn’t understand, Romney inadvertently affected defense negotiations, at least at a superficial level.
