If "reality" is your guide, then this week Harry Reid said a whopper.
“Since a few Republicans blocked these important sanctions last work period, Russian lawmakers voted to annex Crimea and Russian forces have taken over Ukrainian military bases,” Reid said. “It’s impossible to know whether events would have unfolded differently if the United States had responded to Russian aggression with a strong, unified voice.”Yeah...it is 'impossible' to know...but it probably didn't now did it?
Of course many Republicans have been asserting for weeks that if Obama were willing to annihilate civilization then this wouldn't have happened either.
And, of course, there's this.
Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) on Tuesday defended Russia's annexation of Crimea, arguing that the people of the region had a right to secede from Ukraine, Buzzfeed reported. "From what I understand, what happened in Crimea, not one person was killed. Maybe one — maybe there was one".Dana's always been one to pick 'em.
"[Rohrabacher] says the Taliban are devout traditionalists—not terrorists or revolutionaries. He believes a Taliban takeover [of Afghanistan] would be a positive development."
