In the realm of the more curious statements coming out of the Kremlin's bogeyman Vlad Surkov,is his comparison of Putin to Roosevelt! Just goes to show how far out there the people running Russia are. To compare a authoritarian former KGB agent to one of the greatest presidents in American history is not only ridiculous but is absurd to the power of infinity. And this is while Khodorkovsky is being accused of stealing 32 billion! To compare Roosevelt to Putin is like comparing him to Mussolini, perhaps Surkov wanted to show how he admires American history, while openly supporting it's biggest enemy in Iran.
