To follow up on the RedHot post about the ultra-nationalist cryptofascist Russians, it’s not just the far-right in Russia who are talking about the Obama administration. I daresay, however, that the far-left there view Obama not as presaging the destruction of America, but instead as a rebirth that could accrue to their benefit. Wonderful. Hope and Change, and all that.
The leader of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation, Gennady Zyuganov, welcomed Barack Obama’s victory. “His election is the choice of the younger, and the modern America which has been totally disappointed in the politics of George W. Bush. The Americans will not forgive the Republicans the two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Zyuganov told Interfax Wednesday. “Obama does not have answers to many vital questions yet, although he stated in many of his speeches that he would change the previous political course, which is highly important. All Republican presidents have always defended national interests, ignoring the interests of other countries of the world. The new US president cannot but understand that it is impossible to seek and find answers to many global issues without the participation of such a great country as Russia,” the leader of Russian communists said.
Well, according to important observers in the former Soviet Union, I guess our choice now boils down to being destroyed from within or being embraced by the Communists. I guess it’s good to see the Russians haven’t lost their timeless sense of humor. They’re almost as funny as The Fonz!

The reasons are pretty obvious: He’s been hemorrhaging staff, running out of money, he finished fourth in Iowa and dead last in New Hampshire, and there’s no indication that he will do any better | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES There’s a very simple and obvious reason for Hillary’s struggles on the campaign trail this year: she’s a terrible candidate. She’s an uninspiring and boring public speaker, she’s prickly with the public and the press, and she’s trying to win a Democratic primary with a message that’s centered in realism. Additionally, she has a lengthy and very public history | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES A lot of the presidential discussion right now is operating on three levels: who would be the best President, who has the best chance (or any chance) of being the nominee, and who has the best chance (or any chance) of winning the general election.

South Carolina is going to be a street fight between Senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio.and Donald Trump. CNN’s Theodore Schleifer, after speaking with nearly a dozen people tied to the Cruz campaign, reports that team Cruz envisions an eventual three-man race between Cruz, Rubio and Trump, but the race isn’t consolidating quickly enough and donors are holing back until there is more “clarity” race:
