I always love it when socialist nitwits panic every time their Great Satan actually looks like it may be teetering over Hades. Ditto for Vladimir Putin:
Whoa, wait a second, Comrade. Listening to you, Fidel, or for that matter, that military-hating money grubbing Rep. Cynthia McKinney, it should be precisely our fall that makes everything Kumbaya, right? You know, that whole "spectre is haunting Europe" business?
The Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin lashed out at the United States today for what he said was its inability to deal with the financial crisis affecting the global economy.
In remarks unlikely to go down well in Washington, Mr Putin was especially critical of Congress's rejection of a $700 billion bank bailout – a rejection that hit Russian financial markets particularly hard.“Everything that is happening in the economic and financial sphere has started in the United States. This is a real crisis that all of us are facing," the former president told a government meeting in Moscow.
Let's get the narrative straight, okay?
