I'm old enough to remember the height of the Cold War, when Ronald Reagan was poised to unleash nuclear Armageddon through his cowboy rhetoric and willingness to confront the Soviet Union.
Back then, the Democrats preached detente and marched in the streets for unilateral nuclear disarmament. Many Dems made friendly with the Soviets, and Ted Kennedy infamously sought their help to influence the 1984 presidential election.
Heck, didn't Bernie Sanders have his honeymoon in the USSR?
I know one can go mad trying to piece together logic where there is none, but I'm really amazed that the Democrats have decided that OMG RUSSIA IS COMING!!! is where they want to put down all their chips.
Let us assume the Democrats are right, and that Donald Trump is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Moscow. What would that mean?
I mean, what could Russia want to achieve?
Perhaps they want to discredit our political system. Well, the Dems are doing a grand job of it without any help.
Is Trump giving Russia a free hand and dissolving NATO? Doesn't seem like it. Last I saw he wants a massive military buildup.
No, the guy who gave away the Ukraine, Crimea, welcomed the Russians into Syria and ushered in their creeping takeover of Syria was none other than Barack Hussein Obama.
It was on his watch that Hillary's State Dept. okayed selling tons of uranium to help update Bad Vlad's nuclear arsenal.
One might suspect that the Dems are engaged in an elaborate exercise in projection - accusing Trump of everything they did, but even that doesn't work because I can't imagine them waving the flag and marching behind Trump if he reversed course, purged his cabinet and put an ultimatum backed by nuclear-armed B-1 bombers on Putin's desk.
I get that they're just throwing whatever they can find and hoping that it sticks, but this is an unusually stupid canard. As Scott Adams might say, it's a terrible persuasion strategy because the counter is so easy - and the Democrats are the ones providing it.
Consider: When Trump said that he was president of the United States and not the world, the Dems were pissed.
When he invoked American greatness, they get really, really mad.
And then they claim he's a Russian puppet.
The cognitive dissonance is just too much. Only the most demented mind-numbed Dems can buy into this crap. To everyone else it looks like they're certifiably insane.
