In the US, found the enemy of the people

34
The other day, the results of the Reuters and Ipsos poll, which ran from 16 to 24 in March, were published. 25% of Republican respondents named Vladimir Putin as a serious threat to the United States. Another 23% decided that the US threatened Bashar Assad. The majority (34%) called the main threat ... Barack Obama.



Every third Republican believes that US President Barack Obama is a direct threat to the United States. Obama even outstripped Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, writes Robert Rampton on the website Reuters.

A joint online survey of “Reuters” and “Ipsos” took place from 16 to 24 in March. 1083 Democrat and 1059 Republicans (US citizens) participated in the survey. Americans had to answer the question of who currently poses a threat to the United States. A list of organizations and individuals was offered. Respondents had to assess the degree of threat on a five-point scale: a unit meant “no threat”, and a five - “imminent threat”.

The poll showed that 34 percent of Republicans consider Obama an “imminent threat.” Obama managed to get around on this indicator Putin (25 percent), who in the US is accused of aggression in Ukraine, and B. Assad (23 percent), about which Western governments claim that he used poisonous gases and special bombs against his citizens.

In addition, twenty-seven percent of Republicans said the Democratic Party also represents an “imminent threat” to the United States. 22% of Democrats responded by declaring the Republican Party an “imminent threat”.

So, despite the wave of propaganda and the statements of politicians about the “Russian threat”, the Americans consider not Putin to be the main enemy, but their own president. It is worth recalling that Obama is the Nobel Peace Prize winner. Of course, we live in a time when Orwell’s dystopia was almost realized, and the war is really called peace. And yet - why are Americans so afraid of their own president?

About why people in the United States do not trust Obama, "Free Press" told political analyst, an expert on US foreign policy, Viktor Olevich.

“We must take into account the domestic political atmosphere in the United States, which was formed during the sixth year of the current president’s rule,” the expert noted. “The fact is that during this period (not without the participation of the Republican Party), a certain stratum of people has formed in the country who have a serious distrust of Obama’s policy - both domestic and foreign. They are not quite satisfied with its origin - he is, so to say, not quite an American for them or an unreal American. Therefore, his actions as president do not always meet the interests of the American state. These are people who believe that Obama is a socialist or even a communist. ”

The expert recalled that for us it may sound absurd, but in the United States this is a common theory. For example, among the Americans of the "right" views in the course of the version that B.H. Obama is close to the extremely "left". They also say that his father was a Muslim, and therefore Barak Hussein likes Islam. Moreover, these people believe, both in the Middle East and within the country, Obama purposely pursues a policy that threatens the interests of the United States. It turns out that the 34% of Republicans identified by polling believe that Obama does not love his country and secretly pursues a policy that harms the US national interests.

The expert also noted that the right-wing American media regularly wrote that Obama could not be trusted because he was deceiving the American people. There are theories according to which this person came to American politics from the outside.

According to another expert, Deputy Director of the United States and Canada Institute Viktor Kremenyuk, there is nothing surprising in the results of the survey published by Reuters. “Americans actually believe that Obama is a failed president,” Kremenyuk said “SP”. - We waited for him to make everyone happy and ash. The real results were quite modest. ”

However, Obama himself is not so guilty. The expert believes that his "squeezed Congress." Republicans did not allow him to spend almost no one bill, which allowed to carry out the planned transformation. And thus created Obama image loser. But Obama still pulled the country's economy. But still considered a loser. And if so, it is bad.

So, let me add, Obama is bad and almost an enemy of the American people. And if you listen to fellow conspiracy theorists, then Barak Hussein is a protege of dark forces and, probably, did not come from Africa, but from another planet. "Outside", in short. And now it conducts in the USA a hostile policy aimed at the collapse of the state. It is possible that Obama was not sent by aliens, but by the people of the Kremlin. Conspiracy theorists have repeatedly called Obama an agent for Putin.

By the way, in the United States they write about the popularity of Putin. And they sadly point out that Obama will not rise to the level of Putin.

On the "Yahoo!" published an article by Rick Newman, which ends with the words: "Long live Putin."

Imagine, the author writes, inflation in Russia reached 17%, the banks almost collapsed, the economy was in recession ... The President of this country would have to explain something to his people. But after all, everything described is the actual state of the Russian economy, which has not yet recovered from the fall in oil prices and Western sanctions. In 2015, the economy could shrink by 10%, unemployment would increase, and imported goods would be in short supply. However, Putin’s popularity rating is above 80%! And it is almost twice the approval rating of President Obama and higher than that of any president of the United States of the last century (with the exception of wartime). Not a single Western leader today can measure popular with Putin.

"How did Putin achieve this?" Maybe he is politically invincible? Or are Russian voters constantly drunk? ”


No, this is not true, the author continues. Putin is "not invincible," and the Russians are not drunk. However, Western political norms cannot be applied to Russia. It's all the other way around: unlike the American experience, in Russia the deterioration of the economy strengthens the ruler - and this “no one understands better than Putin himself.”

The government has successfully exposed economic hardships as a fee for patriotism in Russia, explains Alex Kliment, director of Russian research at the Eurasia Group. Putin exploits "rich traditions" associated with Russian fears "about the encirclement and betrayal of the Western powers."

The author believes that sociological polls conducted in Russia, even by such authoritative groups as the “Levada Center”, can inflate Putin’s popularity. And yet, they do not build an analysis on "fabrications." High approval rating - it exists. And he can accurately reflect Putin’s position among people who watch TV and heed propaganda.

“Long live Putin,” the American states with some sadness, apparently, without really understanding why Putin’s trust is so high.

The Americans, in conclusion, are surprised at the approval rating of Vladimir Putin, but for some reason they are not amazed at the fact that their president is considered the enemy of the people as the “imminent threat” of the United States. This is a paradox! And to our topic, in our opinion, Western political scientists could devote their dissertations.

In fact, everything is simple. In 1990, the Americans liked our Boris Yeltsin - with him the White House could carry out any policy in Russia and its former Soviet "outskirts". At the same time, the Americans liked their presidents. Bill Clinton, by the way, is still a very popular figure in the States (polls are regularly held there concerning the performance evaluation of former presidents).

Today, the Americans do not like Putin and at the same time their own president, B. Kh. Obama, is not likable either.

The conclusion is simple: it is because Putin does not conduct Obama’s policy in Russia. The United States stumbled upon opposition, a political crisis, and feel it pretty strongly.

The second conclusion: the one who replaces Obama on the American throne will not be spoiled by popular love in the United States either. After all, Putin will still be president in Russia, and he will still not pursue the course of the White House.

Apparently, journalists from the United States understand this, and therefore they write with sadness: "Long live Putin."

    It poses a threat not only to the United States, but to the whole world. Of course, it is good that one third of those polled consider Obama a threat, but these polls have no effect on US policy.

        Firstly, the Americans chose it. So there is no guilty of the fact that a person from the outside controls the bandits of this country. So use your democracy. Secondly, I agree that Obama is a threat to the whole world, and not just to the United States of North America, because everyone knows a joke about a monkey with a grenade (if anyone does not know, maybe in YouTube watch a video about a monkey with AKM). And thirdly, they have always fought evil. So the reaction of adequate people is understandable

          Do you think that McCain or Hillary Clinton in the chair of the US president will be the best option for Russia? Hmm, I don’t think. Now two visions of the world clashed ... and this confrontation arose not now, and not even a year ago, but much earlier. And here the question is already as clear as ever — Either we OR THEY ARE US.
          The confrontation of these two different worldviews has entered the final stage.
          And now they are trying to destroy our statehood and destroy Russia as a sovereign state economically, historically and informatively, while Russia is directing its efforts to finding allies and undermining the global financial system, or more simply, trying to slowly and correctly destroy the dollar as the basis of US statehood.

      A threat, not a threat, but has done so much for the Russian Federation that it is just right to give an extraordinary title and awards! :)
      If not for him, could we be so united?
      Only in the last few years, the world's population has begun to open its eyes to politics!
      So let him continue to sit, it’s not just what kind of thread militant will come to power, such as McCain.
      Such a "cold" war is better than World War III ...

    No, we are not drunk. We just look at the world with different eyes. We think. We read. We try to tell everyone that we are Russian-peaceful people. And you don’t listen to us. You just don’t want to. And why?! Russian is scary for you! Always drunk, an overgrown, healthy man with a bear and a balalaika! After all, your brain cannot create another image about us! You didn’t even come up with a picture for yourself. This was done for you long ago. But look at us differently and try to understand ... . Nooo, otherwise it will be a shame for ourselves ... I am ashamed of my limitations and dementia !!! Live as you want .... then don’t touch us. From sin onwards ...

      Obama is a monkey-like banana eater.

      By his psychotype of a soft-skinned, dependent person, Obama did not initially approach the role of leader of a leading world power, being a "black sheep" among US presidents; at the same time, he hoped to join the ranks of the most resolute of them, playing hard with his muscles.

    However, the author did not emphasize the reasons why Abama is a threat to the United States! And this is the whole point.
    They consider him a threat because of ...- SOFTNESS in foreign policy, especially in relation to Russia!
    So, changing him, I think, will bring to the throne something more terrible than him.

    “The poll showed that 34 percent of Republicans consider Obama an“ imminent threat. ”Obama managed to bypass Putin (25 percent), who is accused in the United States of aggression in Ukraine, and B. Assad (23 percent), about whom Western governments claim that he used poisonous gases and special bombs against his citizens. "
    I agree, of which there are few.

    "In addition, twenty-seven percent of Republicans said the Democratic Party also poses an 'imminent threat' to the United States."
    And rightly so.
    "22% of Democrats responded by calling the Republican Party an imminent threat."
    And I agree with that. Consequently, the main threat to the United States is its policies.

    I would not perceive everything that is happening now, as most of my colleagues are humorous and optimistic. Already now, in connection with the "Kolomoisky case", it is possible and necessary to draw several important conclusions. Russia is actually facing a new turn in the US course towards Ukraine and its elites. The stubborn "heroes of Euromaidan" are being replaced by young American specialists, far from corruption as such, but with an even tougher approach to both Russia and the Ukrainians themselves. A cleanup of the largest Ukrainian oligarchs has already begun with the transfer of their property into the hands of American TNCs. The Kremlin's policy is hopelessly lagging behind the real dynamics of events in Ukraine - as well as the similar dynamics in Russia. Our country urgently needs a new course, absolutely new personnel in the government and the presidential administration are required, with a departure from focusing exclusively on the "Yeltsin legacy" with the oligarchs from the RUIE. Finally, one more conclusion concerns the fact that the first political person of today's Russia has been finally and irrevocably sentenced to removal by the Western elites, who consider the main obstacle in the implementation of the strategic directive of the "Washington regional committee" to create a single global government and the necessary political fragmentation of Russia Putin and nobody else. If the above circumstances, for some reason, are beyond the understanding of the Kremlin, then it looks like our country will face the most difficult trials in the near future.

    A boorish ruminant that seems to sincerely believe in the exclusivity of mattresses is an outstanding shot! And although in Matrasia, with the change of presidents, the general line does not change, i.e. little depends on the president, but such a miracle with a nuclear button is a big monkey with a big grenade.
