Who here thinks Putin is loving Obama's troubles with Snowdon? A way to grab a little

power from Obama. I wonder if Obama went topless, like Putin does in photo ops, he could gather a little bit of that power back.

1. Putin doesn't need to grab 'power' from anyone

Maybe you meant grab some 'attention?'

2. Nope. I meant power. Obama is more powerful that Putin around the world. Putin remembers

a time when there were two ultimate powers. He was KGB. I'm sure he's enjoying the shine coming off Obama and he will not do anything to end this Snowdon problem soon.

4. Putin is not popular at all around the world: he supports A$$-ad and his minions.

There is no way that corrupt creep can even reach to his heel.

6. I agree. Putin to me is one male plumaged sociopath. Don't want to see him diminish

a man as great as Obama. But that is what the testosterone cases like Putin do as the day is long.

9. The one and only time I found him 'funny' was when bu$h told him Russia should become like

Iraq, and he scoffed him to his face!

Obama, OTOH... He's Got (most of) The (rest of the) World in his hand!

8. Russia (and the ex-USSR) was and is our enemy. Why do you think we had to get to the moon first,

 

and that losing was never an option in the war back when they were the USSR.

Russia is a prime example-
Gorby tore down the walls
and what did they do?
They tore down Gorby and brought back what Gorby tore down.

10. With the USA always chastising...

...Russia about Human Rights, free speech, etc.

While the USA has the NSA, drone strikes in sovereign nations, etc. Putin is scoring big where it counts...

That is keeping the other developing nations of Brazil, India and China looking at the USA with suspicion...and keeping most of wary of US interference and more dependent on Russia for its energy.
