If Biden said things like this, I'd be advocating strongly for someone to challenge him in the primaries.
DeSantis downplays Russia threat after Biden visit
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, responding to the surprise news that President Joe Biden had arrived in Kyiv, downplayed Russia’s military threat to greater Europe on Monday as “third-rate” and criticized the administration’s aid to Ukraine as a “blank-check policy.”
“The fear of Russia going into NATO countries and all that and steamrolling, you know, that has not even come close to happening,” the Republican governor said on Fox’s “Fox & Friends,” appearing from New York. “I think they’ve shown themselves to be a third-rate military power.” [...]
Russia’s incursion into Ukraine, led by President Vladimir Putin, has prompted fears within the Baltic states — Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania — about further invasion if Ukraine falls. Russia has already threatened Moldova, a neighboring country to Ukraine.
The administration has “no clear strategic objective identified” as it provides aid, DeSantis said.
“And I don’t think it’s in our interest to be getting into proxy war with China, getting involved over things like the borderlands or over Crimea,” he said. While Russia is “hostile,” he said, China poses a bigger threat.
olde dude, Hts - does this concern you? I ask because I know that you guys are as hawkish on Ukraine as I am.
