Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., said Sunday the crisis in Ukraine presents another situation in which President Obama is getting out-maneuvered on the global stage by Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying, “Putin is playing chess, and I think we’re playing marbles.”
“It’s not even close,” Rogers, chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, told “Fox News Sunday.”
His remarks follow Russia sending troops into Ukraine’s Crimea region, amid Ukraine’s months-long political upheaval in which residents in late February ousted their leader.
Though Rogers often calls on the Obama administration to be more aggressive on foreign policy, he outlined a measured approach that called for sanctions but cautioned against sending the U.S. Navy into the region.
“Sending [forces] into the Black Sea is not a good idea right now,” he said. “There are not a lot of [military] options on the table.”
