NewsTune: No one takes RUSSIA for granted!

Posted at 11:16 AM on July 10, 2009 by Jeff Horwich (1 Comments)

Obama's just been to Russia, got kind of a chilly reception., and didn't come away with much. They just really don't like us.

What do you do at a diplomatic impasse? Put yourself in the other guy's shoes. Then write a song. (This tune's from our latest podcast.)

My reading is that the Russians did make some offers and the Obama admin did not respond w/ anything substantive. I don't know if the foreign policy flubs by the Obama admin are due to inexperience or blissful ignorance.
