Russia's interests in Ukraine are similar to our interests in the Middle East and elsewhere. They seek to develop a group of friendly, stable countries that have the same/similar values. It's good for trade, military endeavors, and so on.

Having another nation become more "westernized" therefore tends to be in our interests. It also serves our interests to keep the country from leaning towards Russia. We've really never seen eye to eye and our values just aren't that compatible.
Russia seeks to rebuild the network of countries it had only a few decades earlier.If I were Putin I wouldn't want a western-aligned country on my border either (but again if I were the US or Europe I would). Thus conflicts over seemingly insignificant countries are all too common.

I'd like to differentiate my explanation from personal opinion. While we may benefit from it, I understand the desire to avoid conflicts/entanglements in foreign countries halfway around the world.

I don't agree with everything you've said, but I think it's reasonable and fair.
And, as someone who tends to be on the right, I do agree that right wing politicians tend to have involvement with the military industrial complex. I don't think it's systemic, but it's certainly present and a concern. The example I usually use for this is the production of the Abrams tank. The Army doesn't need any more,but their continued production was still pushed for by politicians from the places that benefit from this production.

You're right that was the question posed. His answer was still accurate, however.

There's nothing stubborn about seeing Putin for who he is and taking a former superpower seriously. You're making a huge assumption in suggesting that the guy is clinging to a decades old sentiment rather than giving his honest evaluation of the world. Which do you really think is more likely?

Seeing something as a threat is not the same as making enemies. Pretending Russia is our friend, completely trust worthy, etc is incredibly naive (about naive as the "reset button").

Understand Putin and you'll understand why we need to take Russia seriously.

Also, if you don't understand why Ukraine is important, I'd suggest some further reading.

I don't deny that the Ukrainian crisis is important in a historical context. But I don't think it is our business as Americans. I don't think that Putin is a good, honest man. He is malevolent by my estimation. But I don't believe that we have anything to gain by antagonizing the Russians. I don't believe that they are inherently our enemies. I don't think that they have a unique monopoly on aggressive imperialism either. Im also concerned about the the way in which the United States imperialistically occupies areas of the middle east, and the unwavering support of Israel that takes place in the establishment circles of elected officials. I dont' believe Mitt Romney's assessment is honest. I think he said what he said because of ulterior motives. And Obama does the same thing, I don't believe his intentions are wholly benevolent either. But within this context Mitt Romney is the perpetrator. I think he and his circle have financial incentives within the scope of international violence. I think it would be naive to think that the Republican party does not work for the military industrial complex in some capacity. I think his ideals are tainted in crony capitalism. And to fan the flames of the red scare promotes a kind of thinking that can lead to an appropriation of taxpayer money that works to the advantage of people in that industry. We can take the Russians seriously without propagandizing Americans into considering them our largest geopolitical threat. Do they threaten our lives, or do they threaten our interests? Or do they threaten Mitt Romney's interests? I don't believe its a stretch to conclude that conflates the two.
