With just 37 days to go, talks on resolving the fiscal cliff stalled during the Thanksgiving holiday break. But in the past ten days, it has become very clear that while Republicans, like Sen. Lindsey Graham are prepared to compromise on some tax revenue increases, including raising the federal gasoline tax, Democrats have yet to budge an inch on any spending cuts, let alone entitlement reforms to Social Security and MediCare. Senate Democrat Dick Durbin offered very little during his appearances on the Sunday talk shows as the United States faces another political battle over the federal budget, taxes, and the debt ceiling. Meanwhile, the Russian news service, Pravda, had some harsh criticism for Barack Obama, saying that he was reelected to the White House by an ″illiterate society″ and called Obama a Communist!

Yes, it is pretty funny when Pravda calls Obama a Communist. An article from last week entitled ″Obama′s Soviet Mistake″ slams Obama for both his economic policy, as well as the rising militarism. Just read this quote from the article:

″Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O’bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like “fast and furious” and there is still no sign of ending it.  He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.″

Pravda is open to the possibility that America is not a bunch of stupid idiots. That the reason Obama won reelection was from voter fraud, aided by the George Soros who owns the company that counts the votes. The current wave of petitions calling for states to secede is a sign to Russia that not all Americans are dimwits supporting the failed ideology of Marxist Socialism. Pravda also understands the clear connection between religion and liberty, pointing to Obama′s war against Christianity and how the Christian Church is resisting.

With fiscal cliff talks stalled for the holidays, is there any real hope that a deal will be brokered in the next 37 days? Probably not, which may turn out to be a good thing. Senate Democrat Dick Durbin does not seem will to compromise on the major issues of reforming Social Security and other entitlement programs. While some Republicans like Lindsey Graham appear ready to accept tax increases to hold off an economic disaster for the United States, there is no real leadership coming from Barack Obama and his White House. This is understandable, especially if you agree with Pravda that Obama is a Communist and was reelected by an ″illiterate society.″ As the song says, what Christmas we get we deserve!
