Criticism comes with the territory and President Obama certainly couldn't expect that he would be spared.  Still ... he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and was considered by many to be the hope of the world.  There would be a fresh start in the affairs of the world.  Including a "reset" of relations with Russia.  

But now, as Kenneth Rapoza of Forbes reports, in Moscow they are calling President Obama a

“clone” of George W. Bush in his drive for war.

“Obama is restlessly heading towards war in Syria like Bush was heading towards war in Iraq. Like in Iraq, this war would be illegitimate and Obama will become Bush’s clone,” Alexei Pushkov, the head of the Russian lower house’s international committee, said on Twitter.
