President Biden’s Lose-Lose Strategy
I think I can still hear them partying in the Kremlin.
Vladimir Putin and his inner circle are toasting each other with shots of vodka and loud singing.
I can’t understand Russian, but I recognize the tune - “Happy Days Are Here Again.”
After the thrashing Putin gave to President Joe Biden at their “summit” meeting in Switzerland this week, the devilish former KGB operative has every reason to celebrate.
Someone asked me on a scale of 1 to 10 what score I’d give to Biden for his G7 meeting in Britain and his one-on-one meeting with Putin in Geneva.
I gave Biden a five for just showing up in Europe. Then I started subtracting - all the way down to zero, because that’s what the U.S. got from Biden's trip.
The G7 leaders were a joke.
All they did, besides welcome Joe into their club of declining countries, was issue a weak communique after three days of posing for group photos on a beach in a posh holiday spot on the Cornish seacoast.
Biden supposedly wanted the G7 to join him and be tough on China for its human rights abuses, its takeover of Hong Kong and its non-market economic policies and practices.
But the leaders of the world’s most advanced countries - who are deep in the economic pocket of China - chickened out.
