Pravda records the enthusiastic reaction of Russian politicians toward the election of Barack Obama. Most perceptive, I think, is the head of Russia’s Communist Party, Gennady Zyuganov:
All Republican presidents have always defended national interests, ignoring the interests of other countries of the world. The new US president cannot but understand that it is impossible to seek and find answers to many global issues without the participation of such a great country as Russia.
That’s one of the things that cause some of us to be Republicans. Zyuganov’s comments dovetail nicely with Paul’s observations last night about the dangers of Obama’s transnational policies.
