Vladimir Putin Criticizes U.S. for Presidential Elections in Which 2nd Place Finisher in Popular Vote Took the Office

Published on December 2, 2010, by in General.

Vladimir Putin has recently criticized the United States for its electoral college system, and specifically around the way it worked in 2000, when Al Gore received 560,000 more popular votes than George W. Bush, and yet Bush became President.  See this story.  Thanks to Jeff Patch for the link.

    Somehow I just have a difficult time getting a lecture on free elections from Putin! He would never rig an election to favor himself now would he? Nah! Never happen.

    Oh, shut up Putin you rigged your election so don’t say any thing about our system when yours is even more broke!

    Any Putin comments about the commie so-called ***elections*** in 1917-1991 in the dead U.S.S.R. ??? — during which he was a secret police agent.

    P.R. and App. V. – in ALL regimes – before it is too late.

    Although Putin doesn’t deserve to give it, we deserve his criticism. We have no right to pontificate to the rest of the world about free elections; not until we make our own elections free.
