Political Comparisons. Australia and the United States.
What seems to have been lost in the endless political sleazy meanderings of the past two years is the remarkable similarity between US republican election strategy and that of the conservatives in Australia. From the day President Obama was elected in 2008 Republicans sought to delegitimise him. Out came the Birthers supported by Donald Trump who claimed he wasn't born in America, and of course then came those who said he was a Muslim and a communist.
