Skip to comments.Way past time to reset Obama's Russia reset

President Obama's policy reset with Russia is working out as well as his economic stimulus, Guantanamo closing, spending cutbacks, green energy investments, debt discipline, Benghazi investigation, Egyptian fallout, midterm campaigning, Syrian dictator-ousting, Bush-blaming, Libya-calming, Iran-isolating, job approval, budget-passing, Kim Jong-un-taming, ObamaCare implementation and Muslim-outreaching.
American presidents have done naive things in the past. Few if any have been so totally and embarrassingly fruitless as this Democrat's self-imposed suck-up to Russian President Vladimir Putin. And yet this Democrat remains hopeful and stubbornly continues them despite the absolute absence of any encouraging returns. You'd think Obama was a Cubs fan.
In fact, Obama has just endured another diplomatic slap, with Putin's government granting NSA leaker Edward Snowden a year's asylum, despite pleas from Obama, John Kerry and none other than the administration's Where's Waldo press secretary Jay Carney.
The former head of the KGB may not realize who he's messing with. On Thursday Carney really let the aspiring dictator have it:
We are extremely disappointed that the Russian government would take this step, despite our very clear and lawful requests in public and in private to have Mr. Snowden expelled to the United States to face the charges against him.

No government is going to respect a national leader who begs them to wait until after an election so he can be “flexible.”
Yes, we do indeed need a reset. But the rest we need ain’t in Moscow.
Moscow is building churches, resisting homosexuality, drilling for all the oil and gas it can, enjoying a simple 12% flat tax, prohibiting new mosques in Moscow, shooting astronauts into space, and is kicking around the idea of a gold backed flat tax.
Snowden did us a public service. While the Russians aren’t 100% white hat good guys, I’m glad Snowden has a safe place to hide where drones can’t go.
The reset we need is with the revolutionary socialist government in DC.
While we complain about Russia, we move our industry to China.
We have lost our place.
Bring home American industry now.
We need to have business here.
We need to stop importing everything.
They'll let him do anything his little clinker of a heart desires.
“We have lost our place”
Never thought i’d see the day, but it’s true.
This is the most serious conceptual failure vis the resurgent Soviets since the Yalta Conference.
