Russia's take on Obama

Xavier Lerma, "Obama's Soviet Mistake" (Pravda, November 19, 2012) writes:
Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.

... Recently, Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term by an illiterate society and he is ready to continue his lies of less taxes while he raises them. He gives speeches of peace and love in the world while he promotes wars as he did in Egypt, Libya and Syria. He plans his next war is with Iran as he fires or demotes his generals who get in the way.
After Mr. Obama's first election, the then Prime Minister of Russia, Vladimir Putin gave a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January of 2009. Ignored by the West as usual, Putin gave a speech with a markedly Reagan-esque tone, suggesting that the world should avoid the Soviet mistake.

Putin chided Western military adventurism, suggesting that the vast economic resources poured into warfare could be used more constructively elsewhere. Mr. Lerma's article turns downright comic at this point:
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.

Reading Putin's speech without knowing the author, one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America. The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative. Vladimir Putin went on to say:
  • "...we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.
  • The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.
  • There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.
  • Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt - are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.
  • During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself."
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.
But of course we shouldn't trust anything Pravda says, because Russian media -- unlike ourse -- is nothing but an instrument of government propaganda. Read more >>

While his criticism of Obama is certainly apt, I'd be willing to fin Putin more credible is he weren't such a shady thug who truly does his best to silence dissidents - even conservative ones. I think he uses the Russian Orthodox Church and traditionalism to further his own aims, which includes Russian hegemony in Eastern Europe (ask a Hungarian or Lithuanian how thrilled they are about Russia's ambitions).

I don't trust Putin at all. He is not the savior of Russia, and the church there have gotten a bit too cozy with Caesar, to the point where criticism of Putin is seen as
criticism of the nation, of the church.

And Pravda is even more of a mouthpiece for Putin than the NY Times is for Obama, and cares as much for truth, research, accuracy, and objectivity.

As one who is the same age as Israel, I was learnt that America was liberty and light and truth and that I could trust our media and I used to count my blessings that I lived in America and not in Russia where they could not trust their media.

And then, as an autodidact, I was learnt that Henry Luce and CD Jackson and The CIA were taking advantage of American occupations in Europe to pollute the minds of Catholics abroad and at home.

I count myself fortunate to have been a subscriber to "Culture Wars" where these facts were developed and well- sourced.

I knew I can trust the media as far as I can throw Vince Wilfork.

And breathes there a man who would not prefer Putin to our POTUS?

Mercury and Not Spartacus,

I don't doubt that Putin is every bit as much a thug as POTUS (ironic, isn't that, but think about it), I find it a further irony that "free-world" America can find less truth about itself in its own "free" media than in the former Soviet-spawned "Pravda" (which means "truth") recognized by all as "state-controlled media."

Indeed, Putin even publicly recognizes the failures of Communism, to which, as he suggests, the POTUS is perfectly blind.

Go Putin!

Maybe Putin is a thug; but he's has more sense then Obama.

Dear Dr. Some of your readers may be interested in this book review as it references men like Henry Luce, John Courtney Murray and Felix Morilon and identifies what it calls the American mind of Our Holy Father...

Thanks, not Spartacus. Provocative.

We Americans tend generally to be oblivious of history, as Henry Ford's famous quip about it attests.

Some swatches of history, however, we dare not ignore.
