Russia and China deal while GOP investigate
Recently China and Russia signed a 400 billion dollar energy agreement that should be of great concern to the US. The two former Cold War allies (each a superpower in their own right) are joining forces and working together.
While these two powerful nations are collaborating, the United States congress is focused on a select committee to investigate Benghazi. Do you think these two powerful nations don't have CNN? Do you think they don't see the level of pettiness and dysfunction in our government? Do you think they don't recognize the shameful attempt by the GOP to undermine the democratically elected leader of our country? Why should they want our style of government? Why should they copy our model of freedom and and openness if this is the example we are setting.
The President is being shackled by bypartisanship as it relates to foreign policy because of a caucus looking for any reasoned for impeachment. This is not the way to run a government. And while congress is focus on keeping the President's poll numbers low with unending investigations and little legislative accomplishments, our enemies are planning, making deals, investing, and moving ahead.
If we don't stop this partisan bickering we may find ourselves like many other great empires, losing our place in the world. That would be very very sad for America.
