At The Corner, Andy McCarthy not so subtly implies that the Russia-Georgia conflict is Obama's fault:
I suppose if we are thinking about turning our country over to the second Carter term — or the first McGovern — it shouldn't surprise anyone to see Russia go into its Afghanistan mode ... or Czechoslovakia ... or Hungary ... or (as Roger reminds us) Georgia.
Whoa there, cowboy. I think what McCarthy is suggesting is that Obama's "weakness" encourages Cold War style aggression from Russia. But earth to The Corner (I know, they're far apart from one another) -- BHO hasn't been elected yet. And as Sam pointed out earlier, Obama's diplomacy-focused position on Georgia is basically indistinguishable from President Bush's. No one would accuse Bush of fostering a Carter-esque foreign policy regime.
