Dimocrats (not a typo) will say most anything. There must be a little of Joe “Buffoon” Biden in all of them.
Dem Senator on MSNBC: Russia’s “Weak” Invasion Proof of Obama’s “Strength”
Senator Chris Murphy went to the Ukraine. Then he came back to appear on Chris Hayes’ All In on MSNBC to explain how everything is just fine.
“Frankly the fact that we are here today with a very weak Russia, having the entirety of the Ukraine turn away and having engaged in a panicky reaction is partly a result of the United States’ strength on this issue, standing with the protesters,” Senator Chris Murphy said.
Civilians might be a bit confused. Usually it’s the countries doing the invading who are strong and the countries standing there frowning impotently who are weak. But soft power advocates know that real strength comes from not invading countries and not doing anything to stop those who do.
