McCain: Obama ‘Bizarre’ To Think He Has Any Effect On Putin

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union with Candy Crowley,” when asked if the recent economic troubles Russian President Putin is dealing with have anything to do with the United States sanctions Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said Russia economic troubles have ” nothing to do with any action taken by the United States.”

“I think that it’s bizarre to think that any action on the part of the President of the United States has proved any deterrence to Vladimir Putin. We won’t even give defensive weapons to the Ukrainians,” McCain said. “And we should be thanking the Saudis who have allowed the value of a barrel of oil to go to the point where it’s effecting dramatically Vladimir Putin’s economy. It has nothing to do with any action taken by the President of the United States.”
