Wow. Stunningly harsh synopsis of our government and people's blindness.

"Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O'bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like "fast and furious" and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama's fools and Stalin's fools share the same drink of illusion."

..."President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama. They read history in America don't they? Alas, the schools in the U.S. were conquered by the Communists long ago and history was revised thus paving the way for their Communist presidents. Obama has bailed out those businesses that voted for him and increased the debt to over 16 trillion with an ever increasing unemployment rate especially among blacks and other minorities. All the while promoting his agenda."

I've got to say, the minute someone uses a reference like "O'bomber", they immediately lose all credibility as far as appearing to be non-partisan.

I didn't write the article...I just posted the link.

This is another country's reporter's evaluation of our political system and electorate.

An unbiased opinion since he has 'no dog in this fight.'

I appreciated his keen insight.

OK, on one hand they're godless commies bent on world domination and on the other you're trying to make political hay by taking quotes from an opinion page from the government-controlled 'Pravda.'

Brilliant.

Funny how they get it, but 50% of Americans are still drinking the Kool-aid.

At the risk if putting too fine a point on things, it's OVER 50%.

Josephus, I didn't take it (too) personally. \:\)

I was truly shocked to read the article as I thought most foreign countries thought Obama was wonderful.

It was an eye-opener to read someone's opinion, who perhaps knows communism on a different experiential level than we do, and who was so forthright in their assessment of the re-election of Obama. Thus my adjectives, "stunningly harsh" in reference to the article. I've never read anything by that person before.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd BOTH be wrong.

Conservative news outlets outspend, out-spin and outnumber left-leaning news outlets by MOUNTAINOUS margins.

So you consider another person's opinion about an issue to be eye-opening? I usually only allow opinions to be eyebrow-raising.

Wouldn't you prefer to inform yourself with actual FACTS?

Wow, sounds like the American right-wing Obama haters have something in common with Obama-hating communists. Politics make strange bed fellows.

You can have all the communism and nazism you right-wingers want. The American 1%ers love you for it.
