Correction: The video below is not what it appears to be. There was no diplomatic smackdown. I refer you to Snopes.
So do I delete the post altogether, or leave it as it is now to show that the video is a production of some dishonest folks out there (imagine that)?
The Lunch Counter is big enough to recognize when a mistake has been made and the truth should always be given the utmost respect. Therefore, the post will remain in its current form to shed the light on what is true.
Here’s an interesting 13 second clip of President Obama’s attempt at hitting the RESET button in Russian foreign relations. It amounts to nothing less than a political smackdown for the United States. Despite what The White House website has to say about it.
Looks like the Russians were not impressed with candidate Obama’s world tour during his campaign last year or with his apology tour following his election.
It is also the first time in my memory that our President was ever treated with such disrespect. The problem is, it wasn’t just a setback for him as President, it is a setback for us as a nation. He has his work cut out for him where Russia is concerned.
Unless you were watching it live, did you see this in the news?
