Russia: A useful enemy in US polls

Posted by seumasach on September 3, 2008

Unfortunately for Obama, much more useful to McCain. Obama, remember, is the “peace candidate” and beating war drums will not strengthen his base. In addition his Brzezinski inspired anti-Russian programme is of the covert, Soros type. That agenda is now in shreds and McCain is leading the New Cold War.

The United States presidential candidates increasingly present Russia as a threat in their campaigns. Republican Senator John McCain is clearly thriving on the recent Georgia-Russia war.

US foreign policy may be in total disarray but all that matters to the Republicans is to hold power come by hook or by crook. A 5% lead in the polls plus a bit of electoral high-jinks should be enough to see them through.

If Barack Obama somehow loses the presidential race, he might partially blame Vlad “the Assailer” Putin. Since Russia invaded Georgia, the world’s attention has been focused on NATO’s response to the brutality. On balance, the response has been tepid, to say the least. President Bush says Russia better get out.

Or what?

Obama is calling for “restraint by both sides.” Swell. Asking Vladimir Putin to restrain his violent tactics is like asking al-Qaida to celebrate Christmas — not gonna happen.
