of Ukraine

Sen. Mitt Romney condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in a statement late Wednesday that also took a shot at both of America’s last two presidents, including a famed line thrown at him by Barack Obama. The Utah Republican blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on a decade and more of U.S. weakness, also alluding to former President Donald Trump’s foreign-policy slogan. “Putin’s impunity predictably follows our tepid response to his previous horrors in Georgia and Crimea, our naive efforts at a one-sided ‘reset’ and the shortsightedness of ‘America First,’” he said. Mr. Romney once was ridiculed by Mr. Obama, when the two men faced off


Not one bad word against Pal Joey, who the Romney Republicans helped place in office.

Reamulous thinks “America first” was a root cause of the invasion? He at the very least needs a new marketing department; perhaps he should go with something a little more gender fluid. I wonder if he’s ever paid any taxes or stopped putting dogs on the roof of his car? In grade school Didn’t he once push down a little boy who wasn’t as rich as him? Probably just a white kid anyway. Bloe bi.den has lost two wars in less than 12 months!! A Dim record!! One which they already dream of repeating. Obumbum was right about Bi.dim.

Thankfully this man did not become president. Saying "without justification, without provocation, and without honor." shows how out of touch with reality the war machine is. Justification: Ukraine and the West let the Minsk Accords wither on the vine for over 8 years. Hubris ruled the day and NATO and the US decided that ignoring Russia's security concerns would have no consequence. Provocation: Continuously expanding NATO eastward and placing weapons on the doorstep of Russia. Honor: Russia has actually gone in to protect the people of Donetsk and Lugansk (Donbass) from shelling conducted by Ukraine. We do not belong in the Ukraine and Ukraine is NOT a Democracy; however, our fearless leaders will tighten the screws only on the people of Europe and America with higher gas, food, commodity prices and increased inflation. Thank you democrats!!!!

I suspect we will finally be able to tell who has ties to Ukraine. IIRC, one of Romney's own senior staffers does. Since Romney loves money as much as the next politician, I suspect Romney does as well. Romney is a waffling and craven coward, but the speed with which he has jumped into this fray tells me he is involved in Ukraine up to his greasy scalp.

Just amazing how this guy can't seem to see how President Trump was set up and derided for the entire 4 year term, yet still managed to do a whole lot for the country. And, if Biden didn't lift the sanctions on Nord 2, Putin would not have been as emboldened, or that it was okay to have an incursion into Ukraine. Under President Trump the United States became energy independent, which means we didn't need the Russian and Middle East oil any longer. We also had the ability to export oil too which would add to the Treasury department coffers which might have helped pay down our national debt. Sorry Mitt, you won't be POTUS, if you think that's still an option.

I remember my vote for Romney with disgust, but there was no other choice. The guy Romney ran against is now running our country in a second term using our national village idiot as his front man. The whole two-party system must have developed over time by elitists who believed more than two parties would confuse us dumb voters. It's certain that our system sure does not always produce the best candidates (at ANY level.)

What's Trump got to do with the situation in Ukraine? Russia took over other countries while Obozo was president, why not do that again with Obozo's third term. Notice Putin didn't do squat while Trump was president, he waited until the dementia riddled diaper king was in the White House.

Romney is a loathsome magic underwear wearing fool if he is blaming Trump and his America First agenda for this invasion. Trump, by making this country energy independent put Putin in a bind because we didn’t need to buy his oil and could sell our oil to Europe if needs be. You can bet old Mittens has some financial scam going on in Ukraine. Everything he does is for the purpose of making himself wealthy. He has no loyalty except to the almighty dollar.

A Brooklyn man was lucky to escape with his violin—and his life—when a crazed attacker slashed him in the neck in a subway station on Thursday night. Stephen Hanson was returning from practice at the Brooklyn College Conservatory Orchestra when he noticed a man following a woman “really closely” at the Franklin Ave.-Medgar Evers College station in Crown Heights around 8 p.m., he told the Daily News. The woman, who “was trying to get away” from the attacker, broke into a sprint and dashed up the stairs, Hanson said.

Republican Sens.

They asked for full travel records and criticized the agency for years of “inappropriate redactions” — especially related to a controversial Kazakhstan trip in 2014. The senators also lamented that three years of documents seemed to be missing entirely.
