Not in Kansas anymore

So I was reading the Rott today and I stumbled across the following:

Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”.

“In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said during a speech at the opening ceremony of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”

Uh, what? What kind of bizarro world is this when we have former KGB head Vladamir Putin warning us that we’re getting a little “too socialist?!” How much worse can this “Obamination” get?

Wait, don’t answer that, Mr. Obama. Please?
