SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine, July 24, 2010 (AFP) - Leaving a cloud of dust in his wake, a black-clad Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin roared into a rally in Ukraine on a Harley Davidson and hailed bikes as a "symbol of freedom".

Putin drove into the rally of bikers on the southern Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea astride a gigantic three-wheeled Lehman trike conversion Harley Davidson motorbike, wearing dark glasses and waving his black gloved hands.

That’s flippin’ hilarious! I’ll have to show this to the Russians at church tomorrow. They’ve been distraught since 0 was elected. Maybe they can have a little laugh at his expense.

"The difference is that Putin is a staunch patriot while Obama licks the boots of the people who laugh at him behind his back."

You got me.

Putin is loyal to his native land. That is a stark contrast between the two. (Although that requires ignoring the question of whether Obama even is American at all.)

Yeah, Putin is one to respect. He’s also said that we’re already in another cold war.

““How about their political thinking?”

No, Putin wants Russia to be strong.”

Well, yes, there is that. I was thinking they both want Russian-type Communism to enfold the world and then U.S. will just be a Soviet Republic in it. That seems to be Bam-Bam’s intent.

Putin never was a prophet of communism. His goal was simple: Power for himself.

Obama isn’t even that intelligent; all he wants is destruction of freedom. He fears the choices of a free people, while Putin trusts his own ability to persuade his people. (both are fools, but Obama more so)

“(both are fools, but Obama more so)”

Maybe it’s just a matter of the relative I.Q. of these two fools.

Is that so? I suppose our overlords don't take that seriously anymore than they do when Imadinnerjacket or jihadis tell us exactly what they're going to do to us.

Yes Darlin,' I was 21 years old, and I actually remember that.

Did you catch that what I posted was a Bing translation into English of the same lyrics in Russian that were posted by my buddy Slings and Arrows?

I was laughing at how much was lost in the translations.

'68 was 30 years before I was born.

No, I didn't catch the double translation, but I'm pretty bright for a 12 year old.
