Russia reset: In Boca Raton, Obama declared ‘the Cold War’s been over for 20 years’

by George Bennett | August 8th, 2013

President Barack Obama‘s cancellation of next month’s Moscow summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin confirms a souring of relations between the superpowers on issues ranging from Syria to arms control to the temporary asylum that Russia recently granted American national security secrets-leaker Edward Snowden.

For those (including PostOnPolitics) who view the sweep of history through a Palm Beach County lens, it also brings to mind the memorable exchange on Russia in last year’s foreign policy debate between Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney at Lynn University in Boca Raton.

Said Obama: “Gov. Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that Al Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not Al Qaida; you said Russia, and the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because, you know, the Cold War’s been over for 20 years. But Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policies of the 1950s and the economic policies of the 1920s.”

    This write-up is not clear and informative enough. Is it portraying that Obama has been totally wrong or that Putin belongs to the ‘ancien’ regime and so is acting likewise? Put the other way round, is it insinuating that Obama lost touch, making Putin the most updated? In other words, the cold war is not over. Can it be that the writer is suggesting the upsurge of a neo-cold war affair?
