Asked today about his thoughts on the upcoming midterm elections in November, Vladimir Putin expressed confidence that his party would gain seats in both chambers of Congress.
“There had better be given all the resources I’ve allocated.”
Putin doesn’t campaign under the main party he leads, United Russia, but instead runs candidates belonging to an affiliated party, the GOP, that only operates locally.
“Each region has its own special concerns, whether that be Russia, Ukraine, or the United States, so one giant homogeneous party doesn’t make much sense.”
He is tantalized by the prospect of having 60 or more senate seats – as that would give him a filibuster-proof majority.
“There are other ways to prevent filibusters, of course, but I’d rather not drag people up to the roof if I don’t have to.”
I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning this blog. I’m hoping to view the same high-grade content from you later on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own, personal site now 😉
There’s definately a great deal to learn about this subject. I really like all of the points you made.
