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.
