H/T Weasel Zippers
The Hill is reporting that the Russians are being very critical of our impeding election and our entire electoral system, calling it "the worst in the world."
It occurs to me that their biggest objection may be that the winner of the election is not known prior to voting.
One can only imagine how much Vladimir Putin is cheering for Barack "more flexibility" Obama, and how much our allies (not that Obama recognizea them as such) throughout Eastern Europe are hoping for a Romney win.
Not since Jimmy Carter, and perhaps never in our history, has the United States had a president whose every foreign policy impulse is dangerous and destabilizing.
