Poor old Burma. They really take it on the chin. They’re one of the few dictatorial regimes left who don’t claim to be Muslim, Communist, or otherwise politically correct.

If only they were smart enough to declare that they were Communists or something, then they’d get the UN seal of approval.

Not that I think they’re very nice. But no worse than about a hundred other regimes around the world.

The ONLY reason Harry Reid survived is because of UNION CHEATING!

Potentially misleading headline here by omitting “Burma.”

From the title I thought 0bama was condemning the US elections.

If he had got to do it the Chicagoland way he would have stuffed the ballot boxes across the US and not one Dem would have lost.

I guess “Burma” is now code-speak for any district where Democrats are in charge of the election process, huh?

ALL these groups need to be DEFUNDED.

I include the NEA, ACORN, ACLU and ALL the others.

Why should we FUND organizations that we don’t agree with?

I remember seeing all those signs traveling down the 2 lane roads going with my parents on trips home - back where the nation’s interstate system was in its concept stage....IIRC, it was Eisenhower’s big contribution. Now, unfortunately, it’s a means to rapidly move illegals northernward, and worse, to move Northeners southward!

Terrible gaffe on Obama's part to call Burma "Burma" instead of what the ruling junta says it should be called. (I read somewhere that many of the ethnic groups in Burma prefer "Burma" to "Myanmar" anyway.)

In Burma, the ruling junta stole the election.
In America, the voters stole the election.

Obama and Pelosi must be jealous.

Yeah the results in Cook are just as legitimate as the farce in Burma. I wonder if the local junta here will rename Cook as Burma was renamed “Myanmar”. If Roland Burris was in charge we’d be “Rolandia County”.

Brazil had an election too. The commie terrorist (w)itch won. Yes she was really a terrorist. Dilma Rousseff. Yay Brazil! Trying to outdo Venezuela.
