[VIDEO] Rewind: Remember when Obama & Kerry Ridiculed Romney over Russia?

Twitchy  nailed it with their reminder about ‘Cold War thinking’, newsbusters.org has it, Mike Miller posted this, with video and commentary

“This the second time in a week that former Republican candidates — ridiculed at the time for their foreign policy observations — have been proved right about Russia; Sarah Palin predicted in 2008 that under a weak Obama, Russia would be tempted to invade Ukraine…”

UPDATE: Now The New Republic is on record, saying “yeah, about that Romney thing…he was exactly right…” Question: Will any other left-leaning critics of Romney who trashed him during the campaign step up and revise their earlier (mocking) coverage? We’re not holding our breath…

Who's laughing now?

Romney’s analysis was accurate. Who’s laughing now?

Now  scores with this timely flashback, with not one, but four videos:

[note: video links corrected]

Mitt Romney’s clear-eyed assessment of Vladimir Putin’s Russia is looking more spot-on accurate than ever, yet it was greeted at the time with widespread ridicule. Barack Obama, in the final presidential debate:

“A few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia…the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.”

John Kerry at the DNC:

“…but not Mitt Romney. He’s even blurted out the preposterous notion that Russia is our ‘number one geopolitical foe.’ Folks: Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from Alaska; Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching Rocky IV.”
