Barack Obama punished for being too honest with Russia

Former Bush administration officials are strongly displeased about Obama’s conduct during his recent visit to Moscow.

For example, ex- Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Liz Cheney criticized Obama’s speech, which he delivered to the New Economic School graduates.

“There are two different versions of the story of the end of the Cold War: the Russian version, and the truth. President Barack Obama endorsed the Russian version in Moscow,” Liz Cheney told The Wall Street Journal.

The official disliked Obama’s remarks that the Cold War reached a conclusion because of the actions taken by many nations over many years, including Russia and the countries of Eastern Europe. By Cheney’s opinion, the decisive role was played by “the commitment of free nations to defend liberty and defeat Communism”.

“It is irresponsible for an American president to go to Moscow and tell a room full of young Russians less than the truth about how the Cold War ended,” she said.

Cheney wants the White House to take a lesson from President Harry Truman who was one of the ideologists of the Cold War initiation and armament race.

Experts say that Cheney’s attack against irresponsible statements is no surprise. It would be, on the contrary, strange if the efforts to improve Russian-American relationships did not draw Republicans’ criticism. American neoconservatives consider Obama to be a dangerous idealist.

There were neither anti-American nor pro-Russian notes in Obama’s speeches. He simply said what one could never hear form the US Republican Party representatives . Obama simply acknowledged the role of Russia in the history of world civilization. The Russian authorities have a common feeling that Obama is sincere in his approach. He is obviously not liable to the Cold War sentiments.

The US President will unlikely react to conservatives’ attacks, though he will have to defend his position, demonstrating that he protects national interests.
