Noah Rothman at Mediaite added that when Romney made his original anti-Russia comments in September 2012, MSNBC's Rachel Maddow trashed him as a lightweight on her blog. "The problem is the former governor just doesn't have any real policy chops in this area. He's out of his depth, and struggles when the subject takes center stage. It's not just that Romney is uninformed; it's that he hasn't figured out how to fake it."
Leftists like Maddow pine for the opportunity to proclaim conservatives are on the "wrong side of history." But the left was completely on the wrong side of evaluating the Cold War. They're still looking dumb for promoting Obama as he boasted that he had punched a "reset button" of warm cooperation with Russia in 2009.
There are still bad actors in the world who openly spit in the face of those seeking democracy and peace. But Team Obama and their media repeaters want to insist someone (SET ITAL) else (END ITAL) is naive and stuck in the past. Obama looks every bit as naive as the thoroughly befuddled Jimmy Carter in 1979 after the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan.
So, will those journalists who denounced Romney now come forward and acknowledge they were wrong? Will they admit they possibly can't find the Ukraine on a map?
