Hillary walks back Putin-Hitler comparison

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday pulled back from comparing Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions in Ukraine to those of Hitler.

She said comments made the night before at a private event were meant only to bring "a little historical perspective" to Russia’s claim that it entered the Crimean peninsula in Ukraine in order to protect ethnic-Russians. 

"That is reminiscent of claims that were made back in the 1930s, when Germany under the Nazis, kept talking about how they had to protect German minorities in Poland and Czechoslovakia and elsewhere throughout Europe,” she said. “So I just want everybody to have a little historic perspective. I am not making a comparison, but I am recommending that we can perhaps learn form this tactic that has been used before.”
During a talk at UCLA Wednesday, Clinton called Putin a “tough guy with a thin skin” and described his attempt to “re-Sovietize” the region as “squandering the potential” for a great nation. 

She emphasized support for the administration’s call on Russia to refrain from using force and complimented the administration’s diplomacy on the issue.

Her handlers told her how stupid she sounded. Especially being that she did the re-set button.
"The Tea Party has a right to feel cheated.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

ON SECOND THOUGHT It is very unpresidential of her to say this. Plus her reset button AND her Hitler statement makes a good campaign ad against her, so all Americans see her for who she really is. A progressive hippie Alinsky student.
