***Cheers*** Former President Obama clinks wine glasses with Vladimir Putin.
It’s funny how fast we all forget……
I’m plenty sick of all the implications about our current president and Vladimir Putin. It’s not uncommon to be friendly with foreign leaders especially when there is plenty of tension between our two countries. So here is a reminder to all of those who have forgotten how Democrats treat Russians during important events.
Seems like everyone is friendly with Mr. Putin over the years…..

With global anxiety rising, President Barack Obama is searching for bolder, swifter signals from Europe that it will contain its fiscal mess and keep it from torpedoing the U.S. economy and his re-election chances along with it.

President Barack Obama and Russian President Vladimir Putin will use their first meeting Monday June 18, 2012 since Putin returned to the top job to claim leverage on their twin needs: Obama needs Russia to help, or at least not hurt, U.S. foreign policy aims in the Mideast and Afghanistan. Putin needs the United States as a foil for his argument that Russia doesn’t get its due as a great power. (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari, File)

So how about the Ambassador of Russia?

Maybe since there were so many other people there,
she forgot too?
So as you can see, it’s very easy to misconstrue so called “meetings” and “friendly” body language. It might be better to just wait until the facts are all in before you let the fake news get the best of you.
