    Well you don't have to read between the lines here to see who the Kremlin prefers. Just as Obama went to Berlin before the last election, maybe he'll go to Red Square this time. They love him there, and with good reason.

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/pravda-mitt-romney-out-touch-out-date-unelectable_634772.html

    Pravda is hitting Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney over comments he made about Russia. "Russia is the geopolitical foe," Romney said earlier this week in response to President Obama telling his Russian counterpart to give him "space" so that he could have "more flexibility" after the 2012 presidential election.

    So, in an op-ed today posted on Pravda's website, the infamous former Soviet newspaper writes, "Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America would be like appointing a serial pedophile as a kindergarten teacher, a rapist as a janitor at a girls' dormitory or a psychopath with a fixation on knives as a kitchen hand. His comments on Russia are a puerile attempt at making the grand stage and boy, did he blow it..."

    Pravda goes on to question American democracy and say that Romney is just an "adolescent" school boy:

    Somewhat like Condoleezza Rice did before the Bush regime was er..."elected" ..., Mitt Romney takes the chance to mouth off about Russia, calling her "our number one geopolitical foe" which fights "every cause for the world's worst actors". Unfortunately, such vapid stupidity has become commonplace among senior US politicians, providing the rest of the world with a telling insight as to the real nature of the political class in that country - out of touch, out of date and dangerously jingoistic. In short, overgrown self-opinionated schoolboys with super-egos but nothing whatsoever to back it up with.

    True, it feels great to slag off another country's cuisine and say, for example, that "Mexican food is crap! American food is far better!" Adolescent-type comments such as these generally provoke a session of back-patting, and a ra-ra-ra raucous explosion of national pride which after a few drinks degenerates into "My God is better than your God" and then "My President could smack the crap out of yours".

    Fine for grade school playgrounds. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is where this upstart nonentity Mitt Romney belongs, certainly not to the intricate and complex wheels and cogs of world policy and nowhere near a red button. Imagine this guy as President!

    Then, Pravda praises present Russian relations with the United States under President Obama. "Exactly at a time when Russia and the USA are finding that they have far more in common than differences, exactly when they see that they are much more friends than foes, when they see that there is so much to be gained through collaboration, a foul-mouthed, big-headed oaf like Romney with more money than sense makes a comment that reveals who he really is to the world: a pea-brained, pith-headed simpleton with too much testosterone and too little common sense, with zero tact, no diplomacy and a paramount grasp on the intricacies of world politics. A prize, good-for-nothing ignoramus," writes Pravda.

    The piece ends by threatening Romney. "So talking about geopolitical foes...next time Mitt Romney had better back off, butt out and mind his manners, so as not to appear like a foul-mouthed guttersnipe whose utter ignorance and pig-headed arrogance is only too clear for all to see. See how he walked straight into this one, ladies and gentlemen? Imagine THAT as your President..."

    The opinion piece is titled, "Mitt Romney: Out-of-touch, out-of-date, unelectable."

    It's sad when Pravda has a better understanding of Romney then self-proclaimed American patriots.

    Still waiting for the explanation of when Russia became such a big geopolitical threat. icon_rolleyes.gif

    He said foe, not threat.

    Do your own research. Note how Russia has opposed even the mildest anti-Syria positions, backing Assad against the positions of the Western allies.

    Note when angry crowds in an unprecedented show of defiance against the Medvedev-Putin deal and rigged elections, the Putin forces blamed it on the US. Laughable and obvious scapegoat, but the words were harsh. Is that how friends talk about friends?

    They like Obama. 2009 unilateral pullout of missile shield, embarrassing our allies in E Europe, not even getting a quid pro quo from Russia. Obama has expressed interest in sharing our classified military information with Russia, and is interested in cutting our nuclear weapons. May be reasonable, but would it be unilateral, US with 300 versus Russia with 6,000?

    Like it or not, but the opinion is Obama is a weak push-over. They want him for 4 more years. Maybe they will even contribute to his Super-PAC. Maybe they already have.

    Would that be the same Syria where Russia is supporting the peace agreement created by the UN?

    The missile shield is ridiculous and needed to be stopped.

    The rest of your post is recycled speculation and lies from the right-wing op-eds...

    I know you're desperate to find a reason for folks to support Romney over Obama now that the economy is rebounding, but Russia???

    It's just hilarious.

    So you advocate providing classified info if you disagree with a particular system? Remember J. Rosenberg? He felt the same way but provided it in an illegal way. Khrushchev, in his memoirs published after his death, praised Rosenberg. Always good to be praised by the Soviets or Russians, no?

    No. I'm for questioning the ridiculous propaganda you're posting because you're terrified that Obama is going to be reelected.

    For example, as I'm sure you know, the negotiations to share classified data with the Russians on missile defense was started by the Bush administration.

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/07/usa-russia-missiledefense-idUSL2E8E6EL920120307

    Like with the mandate, the START treaty, etc. neither you nor any right-winger has any core principles anymore. If Obama is for something, no matter what it's provenance, it's suddenly an evil plot to sell America out by the crazed Marxist Kenyan.

    You're making a complete ass of yourself.

    You're making a complete ass of yourself.

    In fact even Reagan tossed out the possibiliy of sharing some SDI data. The difference in all cases is it was a negotiating possibility. In Obama's case it will be a unilateral done deal, just like the pull out of missile defense in 2009.

    As far as being terrified of an Obama reelection, that is the position of many in this country who are concerned that unchecked by a future election, he will sell this country down the river. The Russians are salivating at the prospect. They wouldn't need to activate another spy ring as was discovered a while back - our "friends" spying on us. Imagine that.

    It's hard to believe that some morons can't except the fact that the cold war is still over.

    "...except the fact..." "...accept the fact..."
    If you were aware of world events, you would know that Russia opposes the US and other Western countries frequently.
