    Obama is strengthening our relationships with Russia, the G8 nations and the Vatican.

    The Bush administration soured international relations with their arrogant unilateral style.

    Obama is healing the relations as shown by the success of his current trip. Obama knows how to disagree with others but not be disagreeable. George Bush was disagreeable whether he agreed or disagreed with other international leaders.

    Another plus is Obama knows how to chew with his mouth closed.

    I suppose that's why Russia threatened to deploy missles near Poland if we didn't stop missle defense.

    Did you pay attention to what happened to US-Russian relations durring the Bush administration. George W Bush almost undid all that Reagan and his father did in the 80's.

    Putin took advantage of Bush's unpopularity and lack of respect in the international community to increase Russian power in throughout world.

    The overall tone of Obama's meetings in Russia were cooperative. You need to read more than one article about Obama's trip to Russia.

    George W. was something else. He was an absolute embarrasment.

    You sound like you are a graduate of the George W. Bush school of international relations.

    The results speak for themself.

    We need to work our relationship with Russia to our advantage not the Russian's advantage. Putin played George W. like a fine tuned violin, to his advantage.
    Obama will use diplomacy to turn that around.
