Michael McFaul

Help explain to me why criticism of Putin is considered "anti-Russian"? No one in US would ever call criticism of Obama "anti-American."

@McFaul because Russian people support their president. No one hate or criticize him. That's all about the integrity of the Russian nation.

so he's perfect? Never makes mistakes?

@McFaul sometimes everyone makes mistakes, but the nation should let the president do his job.

Russian economy in recession. Maybe time to question just how good a job he is doing? That's the democratic way.

@McFaul what about American economy? You change president every 4 year. Something becomes better?
