The War Party?

The anti-Trump left became unhinged (yet again) after the president’s press conference with Putin, especially for his “deflection” on questions of alleged hacking of the 2016 elections.

Nancy Pelosi suggested that Putin “has something on” Trump.  CNN’sAnderson Cooper called Trump’s press conference remarks “disgraceful.”  Obama CIA Director John Brennan tweeted that Trump’s remarks were “nothing short of treasonous” and amounted to an impeachable offense.

Really?

The political left was giddy as Obama negotiated a nuclear deal with the Holocaust-denying regime of Iran as its agents were killing U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Obama didn’t want Congress to vote on it, and parts of the deal were kept secret from Congress.  He flew pallets of cash to Iran in the middle of the night.  He refused to prosecute Hezbollah for drug trafficking.

Maybe we should be asking what Iran has on Obama!

But the Democrats don’t want Donald Trump talking to Russia.  And when he insists on talking to Russia, the number one thing that the left demands is that Putin turn over a dozen Russian intelligence officers who hacked Democrat organizations in 2016.

There is no chance of that happening.  Neither would we hand over a dozen CIA agents whose job is to make life difficult for Russia.  That said, Putin invitedSpecial Counsel Robert Mueller to continue his investigation in Russia.

But what exactly is it that these progressives want Trump to do in order to get tough on Russia?  Are they suggesting that he threaten a nuclear strike?  Do they want him to shoot down Russian planes?

And why didn’t Obama do anything about the Russian hacking?  (Here andhere.)

I don’t hear any real suggestions at all, just constant carping against a president who wants to make America great again.
