    Boehner: Bush would have punched Putin in the nose

    Davenport, Iowa (CNN) -- House Speaker John Boehner is trashing President Obama's foreign policy on the campaign trail by talking up someone Republicans have spent years running from: George W. Bush.
    "Does anybody think that Vladimir Putin would have gone into Crimea had George W. Bush been president of the United States? No!" Boehner asked, and answered, before a group of Republican volunteers here.
    "Even Putin is smart enough to know that Bush would have punched him in the nose in about 10 seconds!" Boehner said to an applauding crowd.

    Just STFU Boehner. Seriously. The Cowboy act doesn't hunt. Honestly. This helps diplomacy how exactly?

    That actually sums up Bush era foreign policy really well. When in doubt, just go punch a world leader in the nose. Who needs diplomacy, trade, negotiation, and other traditional means of foreign relations when you have 'murican pride and really big ass bombs?

    Putin's Russia went into Georgia in August 2008, while George W. Bush was still President of America, and Putin's nose went unpunched.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Boehner said, "Does anybody think that Vladimir Putin would have gone into Crimea had George W. Bush been president of the United States?"

    Ol' GWBush, the first torturer, didn't have the courage to show up for Vietnam or even the Champagne unit duties. What a putz.

    In his defense, Saddam did commit genocide twice, institutionalize rape, sell food-from-oil, fire on no-flies in place to prevent further genocide, fake a WMD program and otherwise obliterate Iraq's economic, social and ecologic capital.

    Maybe Dubya would have given him a nice back rub.

    Bush would have gazed into his eyes and saw a good person...
