"The Russian Reset to Nowhere Putin schools Obama in the lessons of history. Rich Lowry
"reset" with Russia had a brief, unhappy life. It began with
then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton presenting her Russian
counterpart with a .... reset button ..... a
geopolitical initiative that has been exposed as willful naïveté and
strategic obtuseness from the beginning?"
This is typical Republican criticism and it is true that Obama misread Russia's willingness to cooperate with the U.S. and perhaps be a positive player on the world stage. A big mistake - so similar to the President's effort to reach out to Republicans, who turned out to place destroying Obama's presidency above benefiting the country.
