That whole Georgia attack by Russia thing, was all a “plot by Dick Cheney, the Vice-President, to stop Barak Obama being elected president of the United States.”

Liberals love Russia. They think Russia invading a peaceful democracy is the same as taking a tyrant out of power and stopping the wholesale slaughter of his own people, at his own hands.

Liberals think McCain longs for the days of the cold-war. The Times Online reports: “George Bush’s Administration is promoting interests of candidate John McCain,” said Dr Markov. “Defeated by Barak Obama on all fronts, McCain has one last card to play yet – the creation of a virtual Cold War with Russia . . . Bush himself did not want a war in South Ossetia but his Republican Party did not leave him any choice.” The Americans were now engineering an armed conflict between Ukraine and Russia, Dr Markov added.

The Establishment and its media supporters are dusting off favourites from the Cold War shelf. Sergei Lavrov, the Foreign Minister, accused Washington of playing dangerous games. The West was guilty of “adventurism”, supporting aggression against peace-loving Russian forces who are engaged on a humanitarian mission to protect human life. Yesterday’s headline in Commersant, a generally admired newspaper, announced with old-style sarcasm the imminent American “Military Humanitarian Landing” in Georgia.”

To liberals its all our fault because gee-whiz we wanted Georgia to join NATO and golly that really ticked off the Russians. So its ok to invade a democracy and restart the Soviet Union, to liberals. And its all John McCain’s fault.

Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine says we owe peace to The One.

Liberals are loving the lobbyist story, McCain’s blog says, “Shouldn’t it be of far greater concern to Americans that the Obama campaign is pushing an attack that is “mirrored” by PR firms flaking for Putin’s Kremlin? “

Democrats and Russia. They have the same goals, the same lines, the same talking points. The McCain Campaign was right: “The Obama campaign’s attacks on Randy Scheunemann are disgraceful. Mr. Scheunemann proudly represented a small democracy that is one of our closest allies in a very dangerous region. Today, many are dead and Georgia is in crisis, yet the Obama campaign has offered nothing more than cheap and petty political attacks that are echoed only by the Kremlin. The reaction of the Obama campaign to this crisis, so at odds with our democratic allies and yet so bizarrely in sync with Moscow, doesn’t merely raise questions about Senator Obama’s judgment–it answers them.”

It certainly does.
