Sally Kohn: These Republicans are “undermining” Obama by criticizing him on Russia

posted at 3:21 pm on March 4, 2014 by Allahpundit

Via Charles Cooke, who remembers being told that dissent, especially on matters of war, was the very height of patriotism. Note that, by the logic of the opening line here, it’d be fair to conclude that Democrats were cheering for Saddam Hussein because he gave them a new excuse to bash President Bush.

But never mind that. Explain to me how criticizing O for not being more aggressive in punishing Putin “undermines” him in any way. Some hawks used to accuse doves of undermining the Iraq war on the theory that the more dovish the public became, the greater the pressure there’d be on Bush to pull the troops out before the U.S. had accomplished its goals. Which strategy is being “undermined” in this case, though, by accusing O of not standing up to Putin? War-weary Americans may dismiss O as weak but they’re not going to demand a confrontation with Putin just because the GOP’s unhappy. And foreign leaders already have ample reason to distrust Obama independent of Republican grumbling, from abandoning longtime U.S. ally Mubarak in 2011 to the Syria “red line” fiasco last year. If anything, Obama’s Republican critics want to give him more options to confront Putin, starting with the sanctions they’ll be voting for next week. That’s a strange definition of “undermining.”

If Republicans are trying to undermine anything, it’s Putin himself plus the excruciating naivete about bad actors evinced by foreign-policy sophisticates:

“What we see here are distinctly 19th and 20th century decisions made by President Putin,” said the official who spoke on condition of anonymity to a group of reporters. “But what he needs to understand is that in terms of his economy, he lives in the 21st century world, an interdependent world.”

James Jeffrey, a retired career U.S. diplomat, said that view of Putin’s mindset cripples the United States’ response to the Russian leader. The issue is not that Putin fails to grasp the promise of western-style democratic capitalism. It is that he and other American rivals flatly reject it.

“All of us that have been in the last four administrations have drunk the Kool-Aid,” Jeffrey said, referring to the belief that they could talk Putin into seeing the western system as beneficial. “‘If they would just understand that it can be a win-win, if we can only convince them’ – Putin doesn’t see it,” Jeffrey said. “The Chinese don’t see it. And I think the Iranians don’t see it.”

They really like that line about 19th/20th/21st century decisions at State. Kerry himself has been using it, a cringing George Will notes:

One hundred years after a spark in Central Europe ignited a conflagration from which the world has not yet recovered and from which Europe will never recover, armed forces have crossed an international border in Central Europe, eliciting this analysis from Secretary of State John Kerry: “It’s a 19th-century act in the 21st century. It really puts at question Russia’s capacity to be within the G8.”

Although this “19th-century act” resembles many 20th century (and 16th, 17th and 18th century) acts, it is, the flabbergasted Kerry thinks, astonishing in the 21st century, which he evidently supposes to be entirely unlike any other. What is more disconcerting — that Kerry believes this? Or that his response to Putin’s aggression is to question Russia’s “capacity” — Kerry means fitness — for membership in the G8?

Given that one of Putin’s motives in seizing Crimea is to reclaim a sense of 20th-century Russian greatness, how on earth does accusing him of “20th-century decisions” insult him? And Republicans are they ones undermining O?

Exit question: What will the consensus lefty line on Cold War II be? The Kohn-ian “support your president” take or Eugene Robinson’s “who are we to judge someone else’s invasion?” line? Dilemmas, dilemmas.

According to what passes for logic among these people; Winston Churchill must have been cheering on Hitler and undermining Chaimberlain for (accurately) predicting that Nazi Germany would not stop with Austria, or Poland, or Checkoslovakia; and (correctly) pointing out the futility of a Chamberlain “Peace in our Time” appeasement.

“You were given the choice between war and dishonor. You chose dishonor and you will have war.”

Just because someone correctly predicts something doesn’t mean they WANT it to happen. Geopolitics isn’t football – and rooting for your favorite team to win doesn’t mean you need to be blind to when the indications are that your favorite team is going to lose and lose big.

The amusing thing, is they are entirely correct.

These action are straight from the 19th and early 20th century- you know, the last time that the United States was uninvolved in the affairs of the world.

I wonder if there’s some kind of correlation there…

Exit question: What will the consensus lefty line on Cold War II be? The Kohn-ian “support your president” take or Eugene Robinson’s “who are we to judge someone else’s invasion?” line? Dilemmas, dilemmas.

Continued incoherence going forward. The left is caught, one one hand between impotent rage at Obama being humiliated, plus at Putin’s dismissal of gay rights, one of the left’s pet issues. On the other hand, their entire worldview of foreign policy (that being that every other country on earth would join hands with us in peace and love and that only the US causes wars) is being badly challenged right now and it’s clear they can’t handle it, mentally.

So expect to see more spluttering and incoherence going forward. They also have the problem of not really being able to blame Republicans for Putin’s actions, and wailing about sabotage is their usual fallback position.

Doomberg on March 4, 2014 at 3:41 PM

The only open question is what ethnic Russians will he “save” next? Putin is emulating Hitler right down to hosting an Olympics in the middle of his slow takeover of surrounding regions. And as long as we have a feckless wonder in the WH Putin will continue to expand Russia’s borders.

Actually, Sally Kohn is one of the biggest advocates of the “lady parts and sexual orientation require you to vote Dem”, so both are perfectly acceptable criteria for discussion. When you bash her for demonizing women and gay people who don’t vote Democrat, then you may open your mouth.

And furthermore, when you acknowledge that conservatives and Republicans are better people and thus should be held to higher standards than leftists, then you may do so. If you are willing to state that Democrats like Sally Kohn are gutter trash who can’t be expected to be anything other than hypocritical, then your criticism will be valid.

Every so often, we get a Democrat Administration. Their world view is completely off making their foreign policy completely dangerous (Carter had Iran, Clinton had Al Qaeda’s unchecked growth and Obama has Iran, Libya, Syria, Russia, etc.)

And then the adults get re-elected to try and fix things.

This is all completely predictable (See Palin ’08, Romney ’12) and no amount of wishing everyone in the world would just get along is going to change the fact that other countries at times need to know the US is serious about not allowing tyrants to expand their influence.

Example; It’s not exactly a coincidence the the Iranian hostages were released the day Reagan was inaugarated now was it?
