Barry’s war strategy and, in fact, his entire foreign policy, can be explained in the three words he used today. He went up to the podium and shared his strategy for getting Putin to stop hacking, he told Putin to “cut it out”. And there you have it, he simply has to tell our sophisticated foreign enemies to “cut it out”.
His other strategy, if you remember, was “don’t do stupid stuff” (actually he used a curse word).
“In early September, when I saw President Putin,” Barry said. “I felt the most effective way was to talk to him directly. Tell him to cut it out and there were going to be serious consequences if he didn’t,” Mr Obama said yesterday.
WATCH: Obama’s strategy to get Putin to stop hacking was to tell him in person to “cut it out”
