Obama’s Russian Reset? Nyet So Much

staples_easy_button-210868Remember the Obama-Medvedev hot microphone? When Obama said after the election he would have more flexibility and it was suppose to, like, historically reset U.S.–Russo relations?

Well, it worked. United States and Russian relations haven’t been this gelid since the Cold War.

Reuters via Drudge:

(Reuters) – Russian President Vladimir Putin said on Tuesday former U.S. spy agency contractor Edward Snowden was still in the transit area of Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport, was free to leave and should do so as soon as possible.

Putin told a news conference during a visit to Finland that he hoped the affair would not affect relations with Washington, which wants Russia to send him to the United States, but indicated Moscow would not hand him over.

“We can only hand over foreign citizens to countries with which we have an appropriate international agreement on the extradition of criminals,” Putin said, adding that Snowden has committed no crime in Russia.

Wait! This was supposed to work.

Well, Mr. President, I hate to say it, but this is sorta what you get when you cut under-the-table deals with a guy who can burn a Super Bowl ring right off someone’s finger.

I mean you know? You sign up, buy the hat and the T-shirt and this is what you get.

Um, and Mr. President? The ‘dip’ in diplomacy isn’t supposed to be literal.
