Eating words

As Vladimir Putin continues to thumb his nose at President Obama over the Ukraine crisis, I am reminded of the 2012 debate when the president made sport of Mitt Romney’s statement that Russia would be a bigger problem than Al Qaeda. Mr. Obama quipped, “The ’80’s called. They want their diplomacy back!”

A very clever and humorous comeback indeed, but as the old saying goes, “Dear Lord, make my words tender and sweet, for tomorrow I may have to eat them.”
