Lenin ... Putin ... What Difference Does It Make?

Kasparov is a Profile In Courage.

If Obama had been our “dear leader” then, he’d have tried to bring us under the Warsaw Pact.

If someone like Obama had been president in the 1980's, we'd all be Soviet subjects.

When people who actually lived under Soviet Communism are trying to warn you about Obama and the Radical Academic Socialists, you would think it would open some of the Sheeple’s eyes.

But sadly.....

As did President Ronald Maximus Reagan ....

How do you tell a communist? Well, it's someone who reads Marx and Lenin.

And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It's someone who understands Marx and Lenin.

Dear Mr. Kasparov, Normally your statement would carry much weight. Unfortunately, at the moment, there is a widely prosecuted unstated law in the United states that dictates that no one is allowed to follow a story any longer than one that takes up one segment on the Jon Stewart show.

But thank you for playing.

Please call back after Ted Cruz takes up the post. He’s not going away.

Kasparov should comment on Miley Cyrus or Beyonce if he expects his comments to appear in the U.S. mass media.

Barack probably took that as an expression of regret, and a personal endorsement.
