Here in the United States the Communist Party USA has written a glowing editorial about Barack Obama.
Apparently, the Communists see a large number of similarities between their platform, and Obama’s positions on the issues. As expected, the farther to the left the groups, the more they like Obama.
The Kremlin likes Obama too, apparently. In a recent radio newscast in Russia, a state-run broadcast I might add, the Russian populace was told the conflict in South Ossetia was part of a plot by Dick Cheney, the Vice-President, to stop Barack Obama from being elected president of the United States.
You see, the Russians and Obama have something in common. They both see America as a sinister force in the world. Forget the fact that it is the United States that is first to respond with aid whenever a disaster happens anywhere in the world. Forget the fact that it has been the United States Military that has preserved and protected liberty in the free nations around the world, and have been a large factor in keeping the peace overall. And when Russia says the war in Georgia is purely about the break-away provinces, never mind the fact that Russian forces currently control a third of Georgian territory (much more than the land occupied by the pro-Russian provinces).
Russia has a history of being an expansionist country, and despite all of their claims of democracy and a new system, Russia has reverted to the old habits of the Soviet years. Despite the new age of information transfer available to the citizens should they plug into the internet, the Kremlin is replaying the same old song and dance on government controlled media outlets in Russia.
And, of course, the Obama angle is getting plenty of positive play.
