… and PUTIN could have taken Ukraine without a fight and ALL of EASTERN Europe, but President Biden’s win in November put a stop to that Bullchit…
Republicans are saying that President Biden is responsible for the Russian invasion of Ukraine because the withdrawal from Afghanistan show weakness on the part of President Biden and Putin exploited the weakness.
It is NO secret that Trump and Putin were best buds… friends to the end… Trump was Putin’s puppet, lackey and toady, Putin’s bootlicker; unless you have had your head buried in a hole, or you’ve been living in a cave, it is no secret. Trump did Putin’s bidding. Why? We may never know.
Trump showered Putin with all kinds of orange praise.
John Bolton Says ‘Putin Was Waiting’ For Trump To Withdraw From NATO In Second Term
In a second Trump term, I think he may well have withdrawn from NATO. And I think Putin was waiting for that,” Bolton said.
The former national security adviser for President Donald Trump said Russian President Vladimir Putin “was waiting” for Trump to withdraw the U.S. from NATO if he had won reelection.
“In a second Trump term, I think he may well have withdrawn from NATO,” John Bolton told The Washington Post in a virtual chat on Friday. “And I think Putin was waiting for that.”
Last week, Trump tried to take credit for NATO and the support Ukraine has seen from the U.S. in its defense against Russia. But it was Trump who denied Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy nearly $400 million in U.S. military aid in 2019 because he wanted Zelenskyy to investigate then-presidential candidate Joe Biden, who ultimately won the 2020 election. The revelation contributed to Trump’s first impeachment.
NICE TRY FOLKS… but with Americans who are informed and want to know the truth it simply AIN’t gonna’ work !
NBC News reports the following with this headline…
Republicans cheer Russian oil ban and jeer Biden for rising gas prices…
Democrats say they are prepared for political attacks ahead of the fall election, as some call for a gas tax holiday and clean energy investments.
Republicans, while hammering Putin’s march toward war, also wasted no time placing the blame for the escalating hostilities squarely on the shoulders of President Biden, saying his administration cleared the way for Russia’s aggression with a series of foreign policy blunders, including the disastrous withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan last August.

Let me use a phrase many Republicans like to use… NICE TRY Guys…
Numerous polls showed support as high as 70 percent for the withdrawal from Afghanistan, and polls show that a majority of Americans support action to help Ukraine against Putin. A poll conducted a few days ago by Quinnipiac University, surveyed 1,374 U.S. adults across the country. Out of those 1,374 participants, 55 percent said they would stay and fight, while 38 percent said they would flee the country…
The response was less divided when participants were asked about the possibility of Russia invading a NATO ally. Nearly 80 percent were in favor of the U.S. launching a military response should Russia attack a NATO country, as one of the principles of the treaty organization is that an attack on one NATO member is an attack on all.
WASHINGTON — Congressional Republicans are championing President Joe Biden’s decision to ban Russian oil imports to the U.S., a highly anticipated move that could continue to push gas prices to record highs.
But in the same breath, GOP leaders — eager to win back the House and the Senate this fall — are trying to capitalize by blaming Biden and his energy policies for Americans’ having to pay more at the pump.
