Hillary and Lavrov push reset button.

Dear Mitt: You lost the election.

According to a report from Business Insider, the failed GOP candidate for president in 2012 has taken time out of his “busy” schedule to ridicule Hillary Clinton for pushing the metaphorical “reset button” on our relationship with Russia.

Mitt was never Secretary of State. He was never President. Wasn’t he a governor somewhere down south? Oh, yes, Massachusetts.

Given that track record, he’s in no position to critique Hillary’s foreign policy expertise. There are many decisions that presidents and secretaries of state make that look, in retrospect, like the wrong decision. Give me the name of one president in the last 100 years who never made a foreign policy mistake, or a secretary of state who never gave bad advice or made a questionable choice. Can’t think of one? Neither can I.

It’s possible, as well, that the “reset” position was the right one to take. What did we lose by starting off in a positive direction with Russia — at least trying to?

It comes with the territory and criticizing Hillary is a cowardly, cheap shot from Romney. Or may it was just Mrs. Romney who put him up to it.
