Obama’s Russia Policy Becomes Fodder for Republicans

It really wasn’t a question of if, but when.  Today the AFP has picked up on some speech notes that Rep. Eric Cantor is planning to deliver before the Heritage Institute in Washington, which may signal that the Republicans are going to zero in on the reset policy with Russia as a key foreign policy weakness to attack during the next elections.  Cantor’s right that the reset hasn’t been working to produce what was expected, but he had better have a good proposal to substitute this approach with Moscow.  On the START treaty, however, he’s right there with Dmitri Simes.  Funny how you end up on the “pro-Russia” side because you are against relations improving.
