Yesterday, President Obama let Vladimir Putin know that Russia is on “the wrong side of history.” Today, we found out that we’re just … “on the side”:

Pardon?

Maybe some context will help:

Yeah … “side of history” still sounds pretty dumb.

Heh.

Seriously, though. President Obama’s buckling before our eyes. It’s quite pathetic.

Clearly Obama’s understanding of history differs from ours.

That sounds more like historical fiction.

Update:

Here’s the full quote for context, via NBC News:

“So we stand on the side of history that, I think, more and more people around the world deeply believe in, the principle that a sovereign people, an independent people, are able to make their own decisions about their own lives,” he added. “And, you know, Mr. Putin can throw a lot of words out there, but the facts on the ground indicate that right now he is not abiding by that principle.”
