    I think this topic could spark a lot of controversy quite quickly.

    Edit: I see I've been beaten to it.
    Please correct any Russian language mistakes I make.

    Your comment is welcome too.

    I wonder if by doing this, we are actually taking the spotlight off of Bush, and putting it onto long forum topics, which in itself will become a huge forum topic.

    MADNESS!

    Я хочу, чтобы Буш дал мне свои богатства, и потом, чтобы он исчез с лица земли.

    I support Bush in most of his political goals. Not all of them, of course, but most.

    If anything this should be in the Politics section. Also this is just gonna lead to arguements and doesn't really have anything to do with Russian, or Russia so if I were a mod. I'd close it.

    Basically, anyone outiside America thinks he's a total moron.

    Agreed -- this doesn't belong here -- or anywhere really. Besides, quite frankly, it's at best a poorly phrased question; at worst, an entirely stupid one. I hate things like this -- "what do you think about ____?" What do you think about air? What do you think about tractors? What do you think about earthworms? What do you think about 15th century Portugese furniture? Do you get the point here? The only way I really see this as anywhere near pertinent is if it's a half-way informed, fleshed-out question, such as "What do you think of Bush's relationship with Putin?" or "What do you think about Russia's position on energy matters and how do you think it affects the US?" And it would probably be even more helpful if you were to specify to whom you were talking -- it's pretty obvious what Americans think -- Google will turn this up in about 2 seconds. Do you want Russians' opinions? Slavs'? Non-Americans'? Little Green Mens'?

    Sorry if I sound overly hostile or wrong, but this kind of thing really irks me.

    Sweet! More questions to answer!

    What do you think about air? - Well, naturally I am all for air, although it has been dissapointing me lately. Alot of pollution and stuff. Good question!

    What do you think about tractors? - I love tractors, once I drove a tractor, that was the highlight of my life. I like particularily green ones!

    What do you think about earthworms? - Earthworm Jim rules! Anyone else seen the cartoon?

    Do you get the point here? - That is a though one... I don't know...

    "What do you think of Bush's relationship with Putin?" - Oh they have a very deep and soulful relationship. They call each other friends, so that is good. Maybe USA will be Russia's friend?

    "What do you think about Russia's position on energy matters and how do you think it affects the US?" - Well Russia obviously thinks that they can use their energy to influence internal politics of other countries. Using energy as a punishment or reward to former soviet states is just plain silly. I think the US is not immediately effected, since the main trading partner for Russia is Europe and Asia, but in the long run it will affect the US.

    Maybe the question should be "What do you think about what the link in my sig. takes you to?"


    But yes, this is also a bit of a self-interested question, by that I mean, you come on to a site for learning the Russian language, asking about YOUR president. Why does eveyone have to talk about America and Bush all the time?

    I can see maybe you wanted to see what Russians think.

    1. Russians don't like America
    2. Therefore Russians don't like Bush
    3. No one likes Bush outside America anyway
    4. Most people on this forum are American.
    5. They are the type of Americans who have passports and are learning about other languages and culture so probably don't like Bush.

    Well, seeing as how this thread has gone to pot, I might as well oblige you...

    a) Air is for girly men. Real men inhale CO2, pansy!
    b) Tractors are for girly men. Real men use their livestock and womenfolk to do hard labor.
    c) Earthworms are for girly men. Sissy terrorists, that is. Everyone knows they're Chinese agents hellbent on world domination. (FYI EWJ was a videogame for Sega back in the day -- did I say Sega? Make that wwwwwaaaaayyyyy back in the day. Not sure when the comic/cartoons came about).
    d) Did somebody say soulful?

    Your only mistake was not making it sound just as cheesy/creepy as it was -- he "looked into his eyes" and was "able to "get a sense of his soul," if I remember correctly. That's sounds like a sci-fi movie. Where are the zombies?
    e) Neither silly nor ineffective in regards to the US. They have a valuable tool to project power and can very well use it -- ask the Ukrainians and Georgians (cutting the power to the Russian embassy in Tbilisi was priceless though!). We may not be supplied by them, but it sure as heck would have an immediate and dramatic effect if they were to say, hault production for a bit. The price would go insane, and every country in the world would be scrambling to get theirs before anyone else.

    1 out of 5 answers was serious -- that ain't too bad is it?

    I take especial offense at that remark, and would be glad to discuss it with you further -in a politics forum or some other, more appropriate venue. Or here, if that's the direction the topic leads.

    Don't take offense, it is only TATY. He just says things to provoke. Next he will tell me to shut up and suck on a rock.
