During today’s presser at The Hague, ABC News’ Jon Karl put President Obama on the spot:

.@jonkarl to Obama: ‘Do you think Romney had a point when he said Russia was America’s biggest geopolitical foe?’—
Wash. Free Beacon (@FreeBeacon) March 25, 2014

and @jonkarl also asks Obama if he now thinks Romney was right re Russia as top geostrategic foe—

“Do you think Mitt Romney had a point when he said Russia was America’s biggest geopolitical foe?” -BOOM from Jon Karl to Obama—

About damn time somebody had the cojones to confront Obama for mocking Mitt Romney over Russia back in 2012.

Nothing like a presser where POTUS gets a question about his former rival.—

Ha!!! Jon Karl just asked potus about the Romney comment about Russia being a foe.—

It was indeed a great question. Unfortunately, Obama didn’t feel like answering it:

. @jonkarl to Obama: is your credibility being ruined with all talk and no action? Obama: I deny the premise of your question.—

Holy cow. Pres totally changes @jonkarl‘s question. Says it implies we’re talking ‘military intervention.’ What the heck?—

“Do you think Mitt Romney was right?” – Jon Karl. “Let me pretend Romney was talking about military intervention.” – Obama.—

Obama answers Karl’s question by creating “military intervention” straw man and ruthlessly slaying it.—

No one said anything about military intervention.—

Doesn’t matter. President Stompy Foot doesn’t give a damn about your questions — or about facts:

Obama responding to Romney: “Russia is a regional power that is threatening some of its immediate neighbors”—
Zeke Miller (@ZekeJMiller) March 25, 2014

“Russia is a regional power,” says Obama. Putin’s move.—

Oh, Good Grief – Obama: “Russia Is a regional power that is threatening some of its neighbors not out of strength but out of weakness”—
Jim Hoft (@gatewaypundit) March 25, 2014

Russia’s a “regional power” just threatening its neighbors? So, not involved in, say, Syria? Iran? Western Europe? Goodness gracious.—
Seth Mandel (@SethAMandel) March 25, 2014

Calling Russia a “regional power” reminds me of ‘Iran, Cuba, and Venezuela are tiny.’…
