Putin's Presidential Polka Play

1 post / 0 new

Mitchell-interviews former PM to Putin re: Iran and Syria. Interestingly he thinks beause 50% of his country considers Putin to be illegitimate. To boost his standing at home by being recognized as legitimate on the global stage by the US, he may assist on Syria and Iran.

Romney would trash him as he considers Russia the #1 threat geopolitically. He also has hawks on his side that want to attack both Iran and Syria, which would also alienate Russia more. No drama Obama was calmly playing his cards in Mexico. Romney can't even respond to a SCOTUS decision he knew was coming. He is no multi-tasker, more of a one trick pony. How does a pony polka with Putin?

btw I know the political dance is usually a waltz, alliteration doesn't work with waltz as well.
