Why is it that Barack Obama and his national security team were the only ones blind to the reality of Vladimir Putin's Russia?
Here are just three articles regarding the Obama/Putin relationship that show how our Commander-in-Chief was in way over his head from the very beginning of his 'reign'!
'Comrade Russia is screwing the U.S. yet again!' - November 26, 2011 -
'...In terms of Russia, the article "Eastern Europe Missile Defense: Da Comrades, Izvi'Neete" is a perfect example of the impossibility for two parties to negotiate in good faith when only one side is actually doing engaged in the process.

'Is the Cold War being reheated by the Russians?' - July 29, 2012 -
'Thanks to all of the factors comprising what passes for Obama administration foreign policy and national security policy, Russia may be planning another move into Cuba and elsewhere!
