Romney: Putin can’t be allowed to rebuild the Soviet Union
[ Editor’s Note: Romney is going full bore Red-Baiting today. What’s going on with this silly statement that he put out today? Is fundraising down, and would that even matter in a Mormon state where he has a lock on being reelected?
Romney’s comment of, “He’s [Putin] trying to reestablish what he had before” is just crazy. It’s like he thinks we are all idiots out here, hogs who would slop up any outdated anti-Soviet Union propaganda.
And despite the hype of the totally unsubstantiated claims of threatening invasion of Ukraine, a half-wit could see they are on the Ukraine border to quickly intercede if the Ukies try to capture all of Donbass and purge all the ethnic Russians living there.
You can imagine if a country were planning to do that with American citizens, say Mexico wanting to clear them out of former Mexican territory, and its having a South American NATO brimming with nuclear weapons, and a 10 to 1 military superiority to press their case.
Come to think of it, that happens to be that the West’s military superiority is over Russia on conventional weapons, and ole’ Mitt actually thinks we are to believe Putin is going to reconquer the former Soviet states?
What would be Putin’s goal? Would it be to rule over a bunch of cutthroat oligarchs who would just want to be subsidized? (paid off) or they would flip to NATO?
Dear Mitt, my mother had an old saying that fits your drivel today. “Sometimes the less said the better”. Some news we would like to know is who put you up to this. Wondering minds would love to know, as you were an embarrassment to our country today… Jim W. Dean ]

Senator Mitt Romney said Sunday that it is up to the United States and other Western nations to prevent Russian President Vladimir Putin from recreating the Soviet Union in some form.
“He’s trying to reestablish what he had before. That can’t be allowed to happen,” said the Utah Republican, speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
The Russian leader has made it clear that, among other things, he’s trying to block NATO — the Western alliance created in 1949 to counter the Soviet Union in Europe — from adding Ukraine and other former Soviet nations as members.
…“[Putin]’s trying to take NATO apart — to weaken it. We need a strong NATO not just for Russia, but for the emergence of China,” said Romney, who warned of a surge in Russian aggression during his 2012 presidential campaign.
…“We should let him know that that Nord Stream 2 pipeline is not going to operate,” Romney said of Putin. “He’s not going to have that wealth if he does any action to overthrow the government in Ukraine — that’s getting shut down.“
