    Isn't that the promised idea for most, if not all, every President of the United States? Yet how many bother to define it and actually do just that?

    The article is only listing but one of the many problems America need to deal with. Besides, Obama is probably too busy involved in some war we're not even supposed to be in to care about something like this.

    I do not say it, but in America to vote for a more patriotic potus, preferably a republican one.

    Killing of American citizens and persecuting of American business is not "private business" of Russia.

    Actually, yes. Any American citizens or businesses who choose to invest in Russia know the risks they face, or at least they SHOULD know. If those risks blow up in their face, they have no one to blame but themselves. For someone who claims to be a conservative, you sure do seem supportive of government bailouts for stupid investments.

    Which American citizens has Russia killed? As for "persecuting of American business," if you're referring to Americans corporations that are actually doing business in Russia, they have a solution if the Russian government becomes hostile to their enterprise: Withdraw their operations from the country.

    I think that dealing with corruption in Russia on behalf of American businesses probably ranks about 1,513,974th on the "to do" list of any POTUS.
