While I voted for him in 2012, I have never been a fan of Mitt Romney. In my opinion, he has always been a smarmy weasel who was more comfortable with leftists than conservatives. That said, the flak he received after claiming Russia was America’s biggest geopolitical foe was wholeheartedly undeserved.
Now, one of those leftist hacks has apologized to Romney, albeit seven years later.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright apologized to Mitt Romney on Tuesday for previously mocking his 2012 description of Russia as the country’s top geopolitical foe.
Reporters tweeted Albright offered a mea culpa to now-Sen. Romney (R., Utah), then the 2012 GOP nominee, at a House Intelligence Committee hearing, saying “we underestimated what was going on with Russia.”
Romney’s comment in a CNN interview that Russia was “our No. 1 geopolitical foe” was widely viewed as a gaffe by Democrats and the media. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden mocked his “Cold War” mindset, and then-Sen. John Kerry (D., Mass.) said it was a “preposterous notion.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
This pathetic scrunt knew Romney was correct in 2012, and she magnanimously apologizes seven years later? Go. F**k. Yourself.
