Remember Obama Mocking Romney Over Russia Concerns? ‘The 1980s Are Now Calling to Ask for Their Foreign Policy Back’

First Sarah Palin was proven right about her Russia-invading-Ukraine prediction she made — and got mocked for — in 2008.

Now it’s Mitt Romney’s turn to take a bow for having “clear eyes” on Russia’s future threat potential.

Fox News’ Bret Baier opened a segment of his show Friday night by flashing back to an October 2012 presidential debate where President Obama ridiculed Republican presidential nominee Romney about his concern over Russia’s “geo-political” threat.

“You said Russia. Not Al Qaida. You said Russia,” Obama said regarding biggest threats. “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because…the cold war’s been over for 20 years.”

Romney offered a powerful retort: “Russia, I indicated, is a geopolitical foe…and I said in the same paragraph I said and Iran is the greatest national security threat we face. Russia does continue to battle us in the U.N. time and time again. I have clear eyes on this. I’m not going to wear rose-colored glasses when it comes to Russia or Mr. Putin…”

And this:

Did Sarah Palin Predict Russia Invading Ukraine If Obama Got Elected?

Though she was mocked for it, Palin actually speculated in 2008 that Russian President Vladimir Putin would be encouraged to invade Ukraine after President Barack Obama’s weak response to the nation invading Georgia.

“After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next,” Palin told Foreign Policy in 2008, “

As Mediaite’s Andrew Kirell points out, conservative websites and personalities are reminding people of the quote.

Palin herself took to Facebook on Friday to remind supporters of her prediction.

“Yes, I could see this one from Alaska. I’m usually not one to Told-Ya-So, but I did, despite my accurate prediction being derided as ‘an extremely far-fetched scenario’ by the ‘high-brow’ Foreign Policy magazine,” she wrote. “Here’s what this ‘stupid’ ‘insipid woman’ predicted back in 2008.”

    Romney lost the election - get the fuck over it. The GOP will continue to lose elections as long as they are embracing the radical, violent, rape cheering, women hating, Bigoted riight wing.

    The right needs to stop trying to recycle old stories as something they are not.

    Palin didn't predict this, and we aren't in the cold war anymore.  Putin's not interested in us.

    Right into the gas chamber, right into the gas chambers you will follow this president.
    Or you will be one the ones that ignore what is going on, because it doesn't affect you
