A little over 4 years ago Obama infamously mocked Governor Mitt Romney for his assertion that Russia was America’s number one geopolitical foe…

“Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that Al Qaeda’s a threat. Because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America you said ‘Russia’. The 1980’s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because the Cold War has been over for 20 years.”

…and while it was a very ‘cute’ line, 4 short years later Democrats are now the ones progressing the relentless narrative that Russian President Vladimir Putin is behind pretty much every international dispute or cyberhacking plot known to man.

But while most dismissed the left’s rhetoric as just a bunch of sore losers letting off steam in the wake of a stunning defeat in November, rather than subsiding, the left’s rhetoric seems to be escalating with several lawmakers, with no proof whatsoever mind you, looking to officially label Russia’s alleged meddling as a “act of war.” Per The Hill:

Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-N.J.) most recently accused Russia of engaging in warfare.

“I think this attack that we’ve experienced is a form of war, a form of war on our fundamental democratic principles,” Coleman said during a hearing this week at the House Homeland Security Committee.

She lambasted Trump for his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin, asking a panel of experts and former officials what message Trump’s “borderline dismissive attitude” toward Moscow’s cyberattack sends to the Kremlin and other nations.

But Coleman isn’t the only Democrat looking to pick a fight, as a couple of California representatives have also piled on:

“I actually think that their engagement was an act of war, an act of hybrid warfare, and I think that’s why the American people should be concerned about it,” said Rep. Jackie Speier (D-Calif.).

“This past election, our country was attacked. We were attacked by Russia,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.). “I see this as an opportunity for everyone on this committee, Republicans and Democrats, to not look in the rearview window but to look forward and do everything we can to make sure that our country never again allows a foreign adversary to attack us.
