Mishiko lures Georgians back from America2011-03-16 12:45
Presently Saakashvili is on his entertaining show tour around the States. One of the items on his agenda was the meeting with Georgian diaspora. No doubt Georgians living in America will have a nice memento to look at on long evenings - a photo with the president. Saakashvili did his best to please them telling about wonderful life in their motherland, boasting of Georgia's flash-like progress and hospitably inviting them back "home". Yet, it's unlikely anyone will accept this invitation.
Georgian economy is missing a lot of benefits (what is Veronika Kobalia thinking of)? It's high time to sell tickets for Saakashvili's appearances and speeches. One can bet - they will be in demand by political humor fans. Thus, the Georgian leader's trips abroad will finally yield income or at least become self-sustaining.
Now Saakashvili is making guest performances in the USA. He has already met with representatives of Georgian diaspora in New York and New Jersey. Naturally, he didn't miss the chance to tell his former compatriots how rapidly and nicely their native country is developing. He was received with genuine interest. Who if not the president will tell that Georgia is catching up with Singapore by leaps and bound making Singaporeans hiccup because of Saakashvili's frequent mentions. Yes, Mikheil Nikolozovich must be the only person who paints these rose-colored pictures of Georgia. All other sources, not specializing in enchanting fairytales, have different kind of news about Georgia.
Vividly describing achievements of his regime Saakashvili didn't forget to mention the obstacles he had to overcome on the way to Singaporean paradise. As it turns out, the country sits in trenches practically all the time in view of the martial law. "When we started reforms our objective was not to impose conditions or look down on somebody. We wanted to have a normal life in our small country. We are far from normal life yet, but our modest desire was opposed by such huge forces. Basically our country established a new order in the region", - he said. This new order is so annoying to ill-wishers that their only desire is to destroy it. But Georgia will fight to the bitter end, Mishiko swears.
