    The Europeans are paper tigers, and Obama is nowhere to be seen. The Ukraine’s economy is dominated by a few oligarchs that have near monopolies on much of the business. This means the free market isn’t functioning well in the Ukraine, and the economy demonstrates this fact.

      And yet, your side believes that a “free market” functions perfectly everywhere, especially when governments do not meddle with either oligarchs or monopolies.

        If you could link to a single serious conservative economist who says any such ridiculous thing, I might consider taking you seriously. Honestly FG, I don’t know whether your obliviousness to the degree to which you mirror the Tea Party nuts you despise–demonizing and/or caricaturing everyone who disagrees with you and utterly incapable of fairly and accurately stating a position not your own–is more funny or sad. And it’s a damn shame because on those extremely rare occasions you manage to transcend your blind partisanship, you actually have some interesting things to say.
