That said. We will never know if Romney would have made a difference or not. One can predict that Putin would have adjusted his tactics and strategies to address a different POTUS, but was the Ukraine on the agenda back then? I don't know.
I think with Romney we would have keep the respect the USA had.....

Now we are a joke.

A weak country.

I believe Romney would have at least behaved as a mature statesman, not as a snarky, petulant, vindictive, politically partisan, man-child like Obama.

As to the question of would Romney have handled current domestic and foreign affairs better? I cannot say, but it's tough to see how they could possibly have been any worse.

He's probably pretty happy that the media has stopped covering the 3rd world parasites swarming the border.

Because terrorists don't have missiles that can reach a plane 32,000 feet up in the air. It seems pretty clear that this was an accident on someone's part and not a deliberate action.

Will that be before or after he unfriends him on Facebook and Twitter?

Would explain why international investigators have reportedly been allowed in.

"A tug of war is under way for possession of doomed flight MH17's "black box" recorder amid reports the device, which could provide the key to the crash investigation, has already been sent to Moscow. Aviation experts said the black box, comprising cockpit voice and data recordings, would establish for certain whether the plane was shot down and where the deadly missile may have been fired from.

The data and voice recorders on Boeing 777s like the Malaysia Airlines one that crashed are among the most sophisticated in civilian use."
Problems loom for investigators as Flight MH17 black box may be in Moscow - Telegraph


Hope the best piece of evidence hasn't already been smuggled off by one of the interested parties.

Probably a good idea to have all the actual facts on hand first? And Russia is already b.tching about the sanctions - their foreign minister called it "bullying" and warned that it felt like the 1980s again.
