If the Russian people allow this guy to dictate while attempting to maintain the facade of a democracy, they will get what they deserve.

During an extended trip last fall, which included India, I was shocked to see restaurants present menu cards (usually in English) with the menu repeated in Russian. This was in state of Goa, which has become an extremely attractive option to Russians fleeing from their country. And it usually involves the whole family. This is Putinization of Russia at work, a guy, who clearly gets more respect by America’s “conservatives” than by these Russians.

I can agree, so often their is a facade taken place in a democracy, there here, and how many, choose not to see it, they look the other way.

Why don't you spend some time being angry against the people who got us in this mess instead of getting emotional about the guy who was stuck getting us out of it.
We're still in a mess and the hole is getting deeper.
There is no clear GOP front runner, IMO, there are no real candidates either.
I wish some Democrat had chosen to challenge the President, mabye then we would have some hope and change.
I mean really, between President Obama and the Republican candidates, who do you feel comfortable voting for? My personal answer is, not any of them.

IF you are good looking enough, the young females come to the US and marry old farts, pop out an anchor baby and then pray he keels over as soon as possible.

Turks are also quite popular among them (and East European in general).
