FOX Business host gives his take on the president’s comments on the Russia-Ukraine war on ‘Kudlow.’
Following on Edward Lawrence's report of President Biden with NATO in Brussels, please recall that last night I asked whether the Biden administration really wants Ukraine to win this war. After today's Biden presser, I think the answer is "no."
I think the president and his minions would be happy with a standoff, a stalemate, willing to concede a lot of turf to Vladimir Putin. Humanitarian assistance is always good. Permitting Ukrainian refugees into the U.S. is okay, but those things just make the stalemate easier.
They don't get to the main point: "We win, they lose." I think Senator Cruz the other day correctly called Biden's approach a "managed decline" — and by that, I believe he meant a managed U.S. decline in world leadership and power. And to that point, I will say that idea of a managed decline in American power is something that should be devoutly opposed, which I know Ted Cruz agrees with.
