GOP leaders slam Obama over Ukraine

More and more Republicans are slaming President Obama over the crisis in Ukraine, with some going so far as to connect the dots between Kiev and Benghazi. CNN's Dana Bash reports on the politics in Washington.

    To answer Mitch, the whole world is doing better after President Obama took office. They are glad to see the USA having a President that makes intelligent decisions, however they(the World) also become aware of the hate mongering racists of the GOP who would sacrifice economic recovery for political posturing. In fact the GOP leaders seem to forget the margin of victory in which President Obama was elected. So they aren't representing the voters wishes by obstructing and sabotaging, our President or his agenda. What I've witnessed by the GOP is lies, falsehoods, and sabotage at almost every turn. I am especially glad we don't have ding dong like Bush and the Neo Cons putting are young people's lives at risk. The current GOP leaders, in the World opinion, is some the sorriest human beings this country has ever had and that is why Congressional approval rating are at 10%. But yet at every turn they spew their cowardly propaganda and hope the Koch brothers keep kicking money in the till for more lying propaganda. What they don't seem to understand are the only people buying their Bull are the people already voting Republican either through ignorance,hate or they are the upper 2%. The well has been tapped dry on all three. Their party is dying, because people just ain't as dumb as they once were. May we never forget how Bush and Cheney almost destroyed our country or came closer to doing than any enemy we had. We will be paying for the Bush and Cheney Presidency for along time, in fact if we are considered weak in Putin's determination is because Bush and Cheney like to sell lies and propaganda, to invade countries and torture their people, all while giving the Rich a Tax break and borrowing the money to put our country into debt to fight Wars with third world countries, that last for decade. Yes Putin is well aware of what is going on in our country and has figured to take back Crimea. And Crimea is going to vote and return to Russian. No matter what and it's not worth starting the 3rd world war over, it's kinda like what would happen here if Rick Perry decided to secede Texas from the Union, except I have the feeling Putin will gain back Crimea with less bloodshed than say a week of murders tallied up in the USA. Hardly worth going to war over and another reason is because we can't afford war, thanks to the GOP and their previous leaders.
