I found a great article on the web by Daniel Ashman with that title from back in March 2018. He spells it all out better than I can. It starts out:
The Democrats’ disturbing decision to go into berserker mode against Russia warrants a re-evaluation of their foreign policy. Nowadays they talk tough on Russia. But what was their actual policy?
I receive a lot of hate email and decided to set up a place for that instead of having it sent through the contact form. The reason I did that was today I received an email asking:
How long would Obama have lasted if he stood and trashed our Intelligence agencies in front of Putin? How long if he had said, “Putin says it so I believe him over our Intelligence agencies?
How far does your hypocrisy reach?
It turns out the answer would be 8 years for Obama. The same sources that tell us Russia interfered in our elections also tell us Obama did nothing to stop it.
It almost seems like he knew it would work out in the Democrats favor in either case. If Hillary won the whole subject would have been kept under wraps. If Trump won he could unload the story and feed the haters. Remember, Obama is the one who said to Mitt Romney during the 2012 debates:
“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because you know, the Cold War has been over for 20 years.”
