Don't Blame Putin; Blame Russia

That's not even required here, witness hyphenated Americans where the nationality they came from always comes before "-American."
Dave, you are exactly correct. How did we ever turn out educated students before common core? Very well, actually. Traditional educational methods work, progressive methods do not. If they did, we would have the brightest students in the world. We don't.
Daniel, why do you always give these Democratic idiots the benefit of the doubt? They wouldn't give it to you. They are idiots plain and simple.
That's the point. Those people in the Crimea have vivid memories of Ukrainians and Nazis slaughtering thousands of Russian and Jews in 1941. They are not foolish, because the people who overthrew the government in Kiev (democratically elected, by the way), are direct descendants of the Fascists and Nazis who slaughtered Russians previously. Obama is on the wrong side of history, but he would have to know history to know that.
Ukraine has been a part of Russia for hundreds of years. The Ukrainian language is nothing more than a Russian dialect.
Putin is hardly a cockroach. He is doing what all Russian leaders have been doing since Peter and Ekaterina the Great -- expanding the Russian Empire. If Obama f%$&s with Putin, he won't like it much. You do not want to underestimate the Russians.
He is not trying to rebuild the Russian Empire -- he is doing it. Russia has been in the empire building business since Peter and Ekaterina the Great. It's what Russian leaders do.

At all levels, really.
They're low-balling this number to keep Dems spending money on a lost cause. Probably closer to 20 - 30 points ahead.
Something everyone should keep in mind in this situation. Kiev was the capitol of Russia for hundreds of years. Ukraine is another carve out country as a result of wars fought at the end of the 19th Century. It is pretty clear that Ukraine is headed for further partition much as what was done in Yugoslavia. If you want an idea of what the western Ukrainians are capable of, read Everything is Illuminated for an account of what they helped the Nazis do during WWII to Russians and Russian Jews. Ukraine was a part of Russia for hundreds of years. History cannot be ignored or taken lightly.
