President Barack Obama should go on national television and call Russian President Vladimir Putin a killer, much like President Ronald Reagan did in 1983 when Russians shot down a Korean airliner, says Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Reagan called the downing of the plane "an act of barbarism, born of a society which wantonly disregards individual rights and the value of human life and seeks constantly to expand and dominate other nations."
Napolitano condemned Obama for continuing his schedule, including fundraising in Lower Manhattan, after the Malaysian Airlines flight was shot down Thursday over eastern Ukraine. American officials have told journalists they believe Russian-backed separatists were responsible for the attack.
I'm not saying that Ronald Reagan was a super-president who single-handedly defeated communism, saved the American economy from disaster, and raised the morale of an entire nation. I'm just saying that Reagan was a president who took a moral stance, compared to Obama who is a complete amoralist with no values, except those fed to him by his political pollsters, and who has no goal to attain beyond his own self-gratification.
