According to the Prezy, not currently slow-jammin’ the news on Jimmy Fallon, Russia has maintained a little bit too much of a Cold War mentality.
Isn’t that like saying there’s still time on the game clock, but only one team is on the field?
According to the statement issued by the White House:
“(The White House) value the achievements made with Russia in the President’s first term, including the New START Treaty, and cooperation on Afghanistan, Iran, and North Korea. However, given our lack of progress on issues such as missile defense and arms control, trade and commercial relations, global security issues, and human rights and civil society in the last twelve months …Russia’s disappointing decision to grant Edward Snowden temporary asylum was also a factor that we considered in assessing the current state of our bilateral relationship.”
Let’s boil that down a lot: Let gays get married and give us our whistleblower back you Neanderthals!
Was this thing written by Lindsey Graham?
I agree with the President on the whole “Cold War mentality” thing, though.
Spending ridiculous amounts of money, treating whistleblowers as traitors, strong-arming the government, acting against the will and liberties of a free people, and imposing an agenda through force that could not be passed by normal legislative means?
Somebody has the USSR’s Cold War mentality…
