    That makes zero sense to me.

      i don't object to continuing diplomacy, in the hopes that the current crisis will be resolved. i do have problems with most modern trade treaties, but that's a different conversation...

      Obama's greatest flaw, as a Democrat, is that he continues to pursue the Clinton doctrine when it comes to economics and trade. He is no "progressive". He's in bed with the oligarchy. Frankly, he should get along great with Putin on those issues.

      His progressive stances on social issues are nice. But you can't feed your family on gay marriage. My state, which manufactures New Balance athletic shoes and is the only domestic producer of said shoes, stands to lose thousands of jobs if the Trans Pacific Trade Agreement goes through. Other states will lose jobs, too. The President doesn't seem to care.

      Ross Perot was right.
