Oh great… Now 68% of Americans view Russia as unfriendly or enemy

President Obama was doing so well when it came to American perception of Russia, but it was all smoke and mirrors. The Hillary Clinton “Reset” is a total failure. Our perceived weakness got this ball rolling, I’m just wondering where it will stop.

From Gallup Politics.

After a tumultuous winter in which Russia has been at odds with the West over Crimea, more than two-thirds of Americans say Russia is either unfriendly (44%) or an enemy (24%) to the U.S. This is a departure from sentiments in recent years and a record high since 1999.

We’ve broken back into Bush-era numbers within the period of a few months.

    Ok for me Russia started to hate us when they wanted us to include the Chechens as terrorists. We haughtily, replied no way. This was under George W. Bush’s leadership. Putin just watched to see Obama weaken our military & economy before he decided to bully his way to building his empire.
