Not that we didn't know that Mitt Romney is an unprincipled power-hungry prostitute, but I like how this was phrased.
In related news, Obama released his memoirs recently (I didn't read them, nor am I intent to) and apart from complaining about Israelis basically running the US (nothing new here, really) foreign and domestic policies--Phil Giraldi gives a good overview at Unz (the site is down currently)--our friend Laurent Parodi directed my attention to another Obama's revelations and those are... pure gold.
If it wants to be taken seriously on the world stage, Russia should take a leaf out of Washington’s book and deploy more of its soldiers in other countries. That’s according to former US President Barack Obama.In his new book, ‘A Promised Land’, the two-term president claimed that while Russia has “a nuclear arsenal second only to our own,” the country “wasn’t a superpower anymore,” as it “lacked the vast network of alliances and bases that allowed the United States to project its military power across the globe.”Despite this view, Obama vented frustration at how effectively Moscow had been able to oppose many of Washington’s diplomatic goals. In particular, he bemoaned that “when US-backed initiatives came before the UN Security Council … Russia blocked them or watered them down.”
