Apologies to Mitt Romney

By Bill Maher

Back in 2012, candidate Mitt Romney said that “Russia …is without question, our number one geopolitical foe. They fight every cause for the world’s worst actors.” And the left went in to full eye roll mode. Obama mocked Romney by saying, “The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back. Because the Cold War’s been over for 20 years.” Hillary called Romney’s comments “dated.” John Kerry said, “Mitt Romney talks like he’s only seen Russia by watching ‘Rocky IV.’” Joe Biden piled on. Liberal commentators piled on. Everyone piled on. But, it turns out Mitt was right. Russia is our number one geopolitical foe. And they just helped elect our president. 

They say it takes a big man to admit when he’s wrong, but it doesn’t. It just takes people who will acknowledge when reality contradicts their opinions. So, sorry, Mitt Romney. You were right. We were wrong.
