"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Washington to tone down criticism of Russian human rights

What is America going to stand for after Obama and Clinton get finished? The Democrats attach a Hate Crimes Bill to the Defense Appropriation Bill and that is okay by their standards. When it comes to a Country like Russia, Iran, or China, human rights mean zero, zip, nada. Total hypocricy by Democrat elected officials.

At first we thought that Hillary would have made a better President then Obama but we no longer believe that the case. While Bill Clinton was moderate, his wife is nothing but a far left liberal. There is nothing even close to moderate or conservative about Hillary. Whoever came up with the smartest woman mantra needs to rethink their analysis just like saying Obama is so smart when no one has seen his records. Why are Democrats such a closed book and the media could care less?

This Administration didn't get it right on Honduras either -- Honduras followed THEIR constitution but that didn't make one bit of difference to dictator lovers Obama/Hillary. Both seem to have never met a dictator they didn't like.

Then we have the infamous picture of Hillary and SOHA Arafat, Yasser Arafat's wife which called into question which side the Clinton's were on -- Palestinians or Israel so she fits in just fine with the Obama Administration and their attacks on Israel:

Washington to tone down criticism of Russian human rights

Washington will tone down its criticism of Russia's human rights record in order to win Kremlin backing for possible sanctions against Iran, it has been claimed.
It is the latest in a number of concessions the US has made to Moscow in order to improve relations and encourage co-operation on international issues.

The plan emerged as Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, visited Russia to discuss a range of issues including Iran's rogue nuclear programme.
Mrs Clinton's trip was part of what Washington is calling a "reset" with Moscow, a new more constructive relationship with the Kremlin that President Barack Obama wants to be based on pragmatism rather than the confrontation of the past.

But it is a policy that has stoked anxiety among Mr Obama's critics who fear Russia will accept concessions, including his decision to scrap a missile shield in Eastern Europe, without giving anything back. Critics also contend that it is a serious mistake to be anything but robust with Vladimir Putin, the prime minister, and believe that the Obama administration is showing alarming signs of going soft on Moscow.

Michael McFaul, Mrs Clinton's top Russia adviser, told Kommersant, an influential daily Russian newspaper, Washington was ready to dilute its criticism of Kremlin rights abuses.

"We have decided that we need a reset in this sphere and to scrap our previous approach," he said, adding that the US had decided it would no longer preach to Russia about democracy so as not to irritate Moscow.

Putin’s bluffing, re Iranian nukes- he doesn’t want a nuclear ME any more than we do.

But, Vlad’s wisely working the Boy Wonder like a poker player. He knows the Israelis will bomb Iran back to the Stone Age… so the Kremilin is just milking all sides for all they can get before leaving Tehran to fend for themselves-

And he’ll be wringing Obama for plenty more concessions along the way… these KGB guys know a mark when they see one.

God Help Us until 2012…
