The Soviet Union had its Useful Idiots. So does Obama.

I lived in Moscow for 18 months during the height of the Cold War when I was growing up.

The misery and hopelessness of the people left an indelible impression on me.

Moving from Moscow to the United States and seeing the difference in optimism, opportunity and standard of living was a real eye opener.

What was even more eye opening was that there were people who not only defended the Soviet system but also attacked the United States and the West for being 'unfair' and 'lacking justice'. Useful Idiots was the derisive term given to them by Stalin.

The Soviet Story was a movie released earlier in the year that highlighted the horrific reality of not only Soviet Socialism but totalitarian regimes in general. Mao, Pol Pot and the Kim Sung Il operated in the same brutal way of destroying completely any resistance to their rule.

When the Russian Revolution took place in 1918 it was generally well received by the public because the rhetoric was all about hope and change.

Americans are about to choose a president who preaches from the same Marxist textbook as did Lenin, which is not to say that Obama is going to implement a Soviet style regime - far from it.

The point is that the gap between rhetoric and reality is going to surprise Obama's own Useful Idiots who have been sucked in by the vacuous message and soaring speeches.

Do you think that those who embraced the communists in 1918 expected the outcome to be as per the videos below?

Well done Jack. You are right on the money. The One has snowed so many in this country and the mainstream media is allowing him a free pass, to say and do whatever it takes to get him in the White House. There was a time,40-50 years ago when the media would have investigated Obama, as they would any other indivual running for President of the United States. Now they pay more attention to someone who asked the annointed one a legitimate question as he passed through his neighborhood. They should have asked that same question themselves, and been enquiring about Ayers, Wright and just what was Obama doing in college, during the last 2-years. Had they done that, I'd bet that Hillary would have been the dem nominee.

Here's a radio interview the Dear Leader gave in Chicago a few years ago. It speaks volumes about what this clown has in mind as a governing philosophy.

Here's a nice juicy money quote:

I’m not optimistic about bringing about major redistributive change through the courts. You know, the institution just isn’t structured that way.

The Obamessiah used that word or a variation of it more than once in this interview.

Here's another that should make any real American poo his britches:

{t}he Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. Says what the states can’t do to you. Says what the Federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the Federal government or State government must do on your behalf,

And as we get closer to the election, we finally learn conclusively what this clown thinks. If the media had been doing its job rather than enjoying the thrill running up their collective legs, he never would have gotten the nomination.

Here's Lord Obama: The US Constitution "reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day."

And this clown expects to be our president.....
