We have propped up dictators (Diem, the Shah, Pinochet); We have tried to overthrow foreign leaders (Noriega, Fidel Castro); We have promoted "regime change" (Assad, Hussein). We have also tried to influence democratic elections on many occasions-- Obama tried to help Ehud Barak in his anti-Netanyahu efforts, and Trump has tried to help Netanyahu.... Some with aid, some with electioneering. There are many other examples. This seems to be a common element of American Foreign policy, regardless of whether the occupant of the White House is a Democrat or a Republican.
So, why are we so upset that the Russians were trying to do the same thing?
In 2010, the party in power (the Dems) lost 63 seats.
