You remember the famous Russian Reset, don’t you? It was an attempt of Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration to improve relations between the United States and Russia in 2009. Mrs. Clinton gave the Rooskies a big red button with the Russian word for “reset” on it, symbolic of the new and improved relationship between the two superpowers. Unfortunately, Mrs. Clinton’s button used the Russian word for “overcharge” rather than “reset.” IKR
Fast Forward 7 years. Mrs. Clinton is now running for President based largely on her experience and the historical nature of being the 1st female President. So how would you evaluate her first big initiate as Secretary of State, the Reset?
Anti-smoking posters in Moscow have used the image of U.S. President Barack Obama smoking to deter smokers — saying that both he and cigarettes are killers.
The poster has a photoshopped image of the U.S. president and the words: “Smoking kills more people than Obama, although he kills a lot of people. Don’t smoke — don’t be like Obama.”
Russian State Duma opposition deputy Dmitry Gudkov published a photograph of the bus stop poster on Facebook, adding a Soviet joke about freedom of speech in the United States versus the Soviet Union — essentially, Soviet citizens were free to criticize U.S. presidents while standing in Red Square. source
Helluva job Hillary.
