Washington (CNN) – Russia's decision to grant asylum to classified leaker Edward Snowden is a blow to already challenged U.S. relations with Moscow, legislators from both parties agreed Thursday, but they differed on how President Barack Obama should respond.
While Republican critics of the Obama administration called for some form of diplomatic retaliation, Democrats said the U.S.-Russian relationship was too big and important to be seriously curtailed or damaged by the Snowden case.
It would've paved the way towards good will and unity of purpose to give us this one little thing.
Russia chose to be...Russia.
Open your eyes Mr. President. This is what time it is.
Replace "Russia" with the GOP, and the same thing could be said.
You want the "appearance of weakness"? Nobody has done more to create it the past 5+ years than the GOP. NOBODY.
Amen to that!
