Now comes the part where the Obama administration starts to pretend their 2009 “re-set button” for U.S./Russia relations to kick off a new era of global “Hope & Change” was “long ago” (video at the link):

DAVID GREGORY: Before I get to my final question on Israel with a big meeting with Benjamin Netanyahu, the prime minister, coming to meet with President Obama, Marco Rubio is on this program in just a few minutes saying it’s time for the administration to publicly acknowledge that the reset with Russia is dead. Do you acknowledge that?

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY: Well, I don’t know what you mean by the reset.

GREGORY: The reset in relations that this administration called for.

KERRY: I know, but long ago, we’ve entered into a different phase with Russia. I don’t think this is a moment to be proclaiming one thing or the other.

The “different phase” Kerry refers to is known in some circles as “reality.”

The “re-set button” offer to Russia was of course part of President Obama and Hillary Clinton’s “world peace through cheap plastic novelty gifts” initiative.

Here’s another one that will be characterized as “long ago” — Obama in 2012 mocking Romney for still considering Russia a geopolitical foe:

Meanwhile, as far as a U.S. response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine goes, Kerry said this morning that “all options are on the table.” Here’s the table (click image to enlarge):

Update:

Bonus Kerry from Meet the Press today: “That is not the act of somebody who is strong. That is the act of somebody who is acting out of weakness.”

Update II:

They’re already dragging Bush into it.
