  • Humanary Stew

    Saying Putin is a stronger leader is not admiration. It is lamenting that we have such an ineffective leader. It is clear the left wishes Putin was their leader.

    in fact Obama is mirroring Putin in so many ways that you probably have no clue.

    Both release those silly propaganda photos.

    Both jail journalists critical of their policies

    Exactly , it’s a joke, but it’s a funny one, some of the right wing comments I saw was Putin is A REAL MAN, lol . Can’t make this stuff up. Anybody but Obama !!! That’s been the conservative slogan for half a decade now , they even had to go overseas to Russia to find a candidate

    • cajun_2

      Show me where conservatives admire Putin? Making fun of Obama comparing him to Putin is a double dis on Obama. Putin is dangerous and Obama as POTUS is even worse for us.

    • Walter Sobchak

      Nope. I’d gladly take Tony Abbott or Stephen Harper over Obozo, though.

    • Hey, That’s Pretty Good

      The only people in America who admire Putin is NBC News. Just go back and watch the way they licked his boots during the Winter Olympics, even calling Communism a noble experiment.

  • cajun_2

    Claiming conservatives “drool” over Putin is called “projection”. Accuse your enemy of planning what you are already doing.
    Lefty groups have already started a petition to secede Alaska back to Russia.
    Just days after Russia invades Crimea. Ain’t that a coincidence…

  • Humanary Stew

    Are any of those inaccurate? They both try to silence their enemies too. Did you know that?

    Putin has had his enemies killed including journalists

    Obama silenced conservatives in 2012.

  • Walter Sobchak

    Can you show me any major conservative websites that that said that? And I don’t mean anonymous commenters who are probably trolling from the basement of the Kremlin, I mean actual articles. Sure there are a few like Pat Buchanan who see only what they want to see, but they’re a pretty small minority. And I would agree Putin is a better fascist dictator than Obozo, not for lack of trying on Obozo’s part, but because Obozo is an incompetent moron who can’t express a coherent thought without a teleprompter.

    And you asshats don’t have any room to point fingers. Progressives thought Hitler and Mussolini were just fine until Nazi Germany invaded Communist Mother Russia. Walter Durante and his keepers at the New York Times covered up Stalin’s genocide in Ukraine. Obozo’s own White House had a Chairman Mao ornament on the Christmas tree, and Mao killed 30 million people in the Great Leap Forward alone.

    Again, you either willingly ignore the context or just don’t have the mental capacity to grasp it. It is lamenting that Obama is being outplayed by Putin. Must be hard for you though to choose sides.

      Do they think we’ve forgotten the way NBC News was swooning about Putin during the Winter Olympics? They called Communism a “noble experiment.”

      And it’s their President being flexible for Putin and it’s their next Messiah Hillary Clinton who gave him a reset button.

  • tops116 ✓Quipper

    I seem to recall liberals being quite infatuated with foreign leaders from January 2001 to January 2009. What happened? Are we just a tad miffed that Putin pressed the reset button on Hillary’s reset button?

    Oh well, continue deflecting. It’s the only option liberals have right now, and it’s quite entertaining watching you all flail about.

    Thanks for again demonstrating how pissed off liberals are that Obama is such a foreign policy train wreck. Hey, we tried to warn you. But at least you guys still have Obamacare to talk about this year. Oh right…

  • cajun_2

    Making fun of our weak wussie president is not the same thing as “drooling’ over Putin. Putin is a slimy KGB thug who loves to intimidate and dictate. He thinks that invading other countries, bringing back slavery, making himself a world dictator somehow makes him more manly.
    Obama AND Putin are both sick human beings and a detriment to freedom of any country.

    • Walter Sobchak

      At least Obozo will be gone in January 2017. Putin the fascist thug will be dictator for life.

      • cajun_2

You do understand the concept of projection, right?

  • Jake Bradford

    Putin is a statist thug. Just like the one you worship, only not AS gay.

    • QueenB

      Ok, that made me totally lol.

  • Walter Sobchak

    Because, idiot, if we had somebody in the White House who wasn’t a metrosexual beta-male pussy it might give the fascist thugs of the world pause regarding invading their neighbors.

  • QueenB

    But she obviously knows more about foreign policy than Obama does. Never having been President. While Obama has been President for over 5 years. Pretty sad.

  • QueenB

    Oh yes, we forgot. No gay Muslims. Right.

  • Darticus

    Oh I dunno, genius, maybe because the last few months have dealt with the west, “led” by Obama, trying to get a handle on the Russia/Ukraine situation with Putin ignoring his ass and laughing every step of the way? It’s disgusting, but ignoring the fact that our president is the biggest p*ssy to ever occupy the Oval Office is not an option for some of us.

  • QueenB

    It’s ok sweetie. We know you aren’t too bright and can only have a very limited amount of information stored in your brain at any given time, so we forgive you for being completely unaware of what we’re even talking about, apparently.

  • QueenB

    And tell me again, how are those Gulf Coast ports on the Atlantic Ocean doing? Ah yes, they’re located next to the 7 states in the US no one has heard of. Maybe Obama can send some corpsemen (don’t forget to pronounce the “s”) to find them.

  • Humanary Stew

    Stop projecting. it is really unbecoming.

  • QueenB

    Nobody is struggling because nobody liked Putin. Except democrats because they think communism is awesome. Look now skippy, don’t be all butt hurt because Putin has slapped your guy around. I know it hurts and you feel like you’ve been betrayed, but really, you need to get over it.

  • Jake Bradford

    Putin has left a trail of dead bodies in his wake, like that guy he had poisoned.
    At least we can say there are no mysterious deaths around Obama and the Clintons! Just a few coincidences, like: Seal team 6, Benghazi 4, the woman who issued Obama’s birth certificate the only fatality in a plane crash, Michael Hastings’ crash, etc.
    As for the Clintons, too many to list here!

    • QueenB

  • cajun_2

    Projecting again aren’t you X.

  • Guest

    Apparently, the majority of real conservatives agree. In a poll from The Daily Caller, 52% of respondents say Vladimir Putin would make a better US president than Barack Obama.

    Unlike President Obama, who cannot push through legislation because he refuses to do what conservatives want, Vladimir Putin would be able to do things much faster since he would not have to worry about pesky little issues like “public opinion” or “debate” or “data.”

    Or “government by the people.”

    Real Americans don’t want that namby-pamby stuff. They want a President who does whatever he wants, as long as what he wants is conservative. That’s a real conservative savior.

    So remember, the next time somebody tells you that “we will never find another Ronald Reagan,” tell them that he has already arrived on the scene. He drills for oil, wrestles bears, and does not under any circumstances wear Mom jeans. He’s the perfect conservative that even Ronald Reagan would have loved.

    With all of this excitement, and conservative hearts fluttering like they haven’t since 1980, there’s really just one more question we need to ask: Since Putin is so strong and powerful and manly and American, shouldn’t we just go ahead and adopt that Russian Constitution here in the United States, as well?

    It seems like it would be the True Conservative thing to do!!

      According to a poll at the Daily Koz, 99% of liberals say Communism with a capital C is the way to go. Give me some time and I’ll make a chart to prove it!

        Yes, that would be a conservative site doing that – Daily Caller. Talk to them.

        • Darticus

          You don’t seem to understand. Anyone can visit any website. Anyone can vote in those polls as many times as they want. For example, an ignorant troll such as yourself could go to a website and all by yourself heavily skew the outcome by voting over…and over…and over. And I’m sure there are techies out there who could bot the hell out of a poll like that.

          Who knows if that’s what happened. Maybe, maybe not. The point is your entire premise is based on something as completely and laughably unreliable as a click poll.

    • Humanary Stew

      TONY JONES: John Pilger, do you still maintain that the world depends on what you call “the Iraqi resistance” to inflict a military defeat on the coalition forces?

      JOHN PILGER: Well, certainly, historically, we’ve always depended on resistances to get rid of occupiers, to get rid of invaders. And what we have in Iraq now is I suppose the equivalent of a kind of Vichy Government being set up.

      And a resistance is always atrocious, it’s always bloody. It always involves terrorism.

      Now, I think the situation in Iraq is so dire that unless the United States is defeated there that we’re likely to see an attack on Iran, we’re likely to see an attack on North Korea and all the way down the road it could be even an attack on China within a decade, so I think what happens in Iraq now is incredibly important.

    I, and most conservatives and libertarians, want someone who doesn’t think state power and control is the answer to everything. Someone who believes in individual rights. I think some have praised Putin only for his position on Islamic terror, and for making Barack Obama look like a weak fool so easily. But these are just nods. Hardly an endorsement that we’d like him as leader.

          Same to you crackah.

          • guestpunisher

            Wow, nothing like being a racist in response to throwing out the race card. Typical left wing garbage spewing when you’re losing the debate.

          • Ms. Abigail van Beagle

            Yup, non-racist liberals always have a racist slur of some kind right on the tip of their tongue.
            How convenient.

        Yes, because between five years of high unemployment, a stagnant economy about to start its fifth recovery summer, a doubling of the federal debt, a botched intervention in healthcare that, for some reason, requires some people to violate their conscience, a Middle East that’s falling apart, a rapidly destabilizing East Asia, complete failure to support democratic revolution in Iran, support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and a power vacuum that is currently being filled by totalitarians in Russia and China, the thing that really gets us conservatives about Obama is the amount of melanin in his skin.

        • Vlad99

          Unemployment was worse under the previous president in case you forgot. Oh yeah GWB never happnened my bad.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHY_xOj2M_g PistolsForPandas

            That is demonstrably wrong.

    Two third of Russian man who dies die drunk. Life expectancy for the average Russian male is 64 ranked 137th in the World. Life expectancy for a 15 year old boys in Haiti is three years higher then a Russian boy the same age. Russia working age population are declining by a million people a year. Only 30% of Russian babies are born healthy. Half of the conscripted Russian army has to be put in limited service because of poor health. And yet the guy leading that country is a better leader then Obama. I wonder why?

    • Patches O’Houlihan

      Minority unemployment, increased under Obama… Wealth gap, increased under Obama… National debt, increased exponentially under Obama… USA credit rating downgraded under Obama… etc… etc… Examples of his failed leadership abound; the one bright spot I can think of, is Obama – His personal wealth has increased dramatically since being elected.

      Keep schilling for the man, the entire democrat party is counting on your continued ignorance.

      • Vlad99

        Well you have to be alive to be unemployed. And Obama made Sarah Palin a fortune. Republican congress decided to play Russian roulette (no pun intended) with US credit ratings.

        • Patches O’Houlihan

          I’m assuming that you believe that to have been a cogent, coherent response…

          At the end of the day, he has proven himself to be an incompetent leader, self obsessed and driven by an obviously failed ideology… All the same, while his weakness does disgust me on many levels, I harbor no ill will towards the man, not everyone is suited to lead, besides, he does what Valerie Jarrett tells him to…

          Now, pay me no more mind, you have kool-aid to drink, the future of the democrat party depends on blind, true believers – Don’t let ’em down!

          • Vlad99

            Nice deflection.

          • Patches O’Houlihan

            So… You respond with Sarah Palin, though she was never mentioned, drop a nonsensical bit of word salad with; “you have to be alive to be unemployed” and then, respond to the ensuing mockery with “Nice deflection”…

            1) Again I say, you’re not very good at the whole trolling thing, are you?

            2) At the risk of being redundantly redundant, I again say, pay me no more mind, you have kool-aid to drink.

            3) As your pathetic arguments have no legs to stand upon, sit silently and try to learn – Put the kool-aid down and look around, stop blindly fumbling behind an agenda – Never mind the right, never mind the left, make your own decisions… At the very least, you can apparently read, now… Learn.

          • Vlad99

            1) Again you talk about Obama’s personal fortune I reply with the fortune he made Sarah Palin.
            2) I will talk to any of my conservative brothers until they decide I’m not worthy of a reply because I love you we are all Americans.
            3) Refute my argument and if you are right I will be man enough to admit it. Attacking me personaly only shows you are the one without a leg to stand on.

          • Patches O’Houlihan

            1) The comparison between Obama and Palin fails – One is the President, the other, has since 2008, been a political pundit – I’m sure we both would agree that between the two, we would rather the POTUS use his time in office leading our nation, rather than enriching himself… Agree?

            2) Indeed! I agree entirely. While not always necessarily kind in my response, I enjoy debate and discourse – All the same, I take as good as I give.

            3) It’s not a matter of refuting your argument, you’ve failed to make one. In my initial post, I noted facts that you chose to avoid responding to (but you did bring up Palin… Woooo hoooo). The reality remains that, despite the loyalty of the left and the African-American community (hate that term, we’re not hyphened, I’m not an Irish-American Indian-American-American… I’m an American, as I assume you are)… That said, the facts remain, thus far in his Presidency, Barack Obama has failed as a leader, by the standards he himself professed pre-election, he has failed – The color of his skin matters none, In recent memory, Jimmy Carter and Bush the younger also failed, both southern white guys… Being a southern white guy myself, I obviously have no skin in that game.

            Minority unemployment is outrageous, and his answer is to bestow amnesty upon millions of illegals… How could that possibly help any American, trying to get a foot-hold? He looks to increase entitlements, under the guise of compassion… In reality, he does nothing more than lock the American social underclass, into perpetual governmental dependence, so as to potentially build upon his political base… I have a hard time agreeing with American’s being forced into a position of deference, in favor of anyone, let alone for the sole reason of building a political advantage… Hated when Bush tried it, hate it now.. Just one of many issues I have with the current POTUS…

            Care to argue?

        • Patches O’Houlihan

          And just to help me out a little (I’m kind of simple I suppose), what does “you have to be alive to be unemployed” mean? Who suggested otherwise?

          Again, I may be a bit simple, but I’m thinking that being dead would automatically negate your employment potential…

          You’re not very good at the whole trolling thing, are you?

          • Vlad99

            My first post was about all the people dying in Russia and you counter with unemployment numbers. Hence you have to be alive to unemployed, simple enough?

          • felicityva

            Actually, being dead makes you a Democrat voter.

    And if it were Romney? Or [dun dun duuuuuun] Dubya?

    • Vlad99

      I rooted for Dubya to kick Saddam’s ass. I voted for Bush second term so he can catch Bin Laden but that Obama guy did the job for him.

      • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHY_xOj2M_g PistolsForPandas

        but that Obama guy did the job for him.

        Like, caught Osama personally, or did Seal Team 6 catch him based upon years of investigation in a country (Pakistan) that is exactly on the best of terms with the US?

        • Vlad99

          Bush had the same Seals at his disposal.

          • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHY_xOj2M_g PistolsForPandas

            And it was the culmination of years of investigation and interrogation that primarily occurred on Bush’s watch that made the raid possible.

          • Vlad99

            So if I understand correctly Bush deserves credit for Bin Laden but Obama deserves the blame for Putin’s invasion.

      So I have a bit of respect for Josip Tito after reading his message to Stalin:

      • http://lordfoggybottom.com/ BlahBlah

        It is Josip Broz Tito, in which Tito is a nickname. He was to be addressed with Comrade Tito or Commander Tito. No one is exactly sure how the nickname came about.

        What we do know is that he was also a brilliant musician, accomplished author and a cunning military strategist. Oh wait. Much like… well Barack is better at golf.

        In real life he was a locksmith.

    I don’t think you can blame Sarah Palin (or Mitt Romney) for gloating.

  • JDW

    Let’s see… Romney referred to Putin as America’s greatest geo-political foe, while Obama [through Medvedev] promised more flexibility to Putin, one assumes to make that whole Crimea invasion a little easier for everyone involved. Yeah, Toure, you really have the GOP figured out…

    • Vlad99

      Twenty-five percent of Russian men still die before the age of 55, many from alcoholism and the violent deaths, plus other diseases it fosters. Russia, meanwhile, has more heroin addicts than any other country due to the drug coming in cheap from Afghanistan. 50 percent of Russia’s water is not potable. To me that sounds like a 2nd or 3rd world country. But you and Romney can move over there and feel the power.

        That sounds like an Obama world except he likens himself to teenage thugs that can barely make it past puberty without getting themselves whacked.

    First of all I noticed how when you ignorant liberal communists start losing the debate you try to change the subject. However, as we can see with the increased terrorism from Benghazi to Boston that the whole bin Laden raid was small potatoes in the long run. Now we have lost an ally in Pakistan which was a difficult relationship initially and Obozo is cowering to a fellow communist like Putin. Any more deflections or would like to stay on point there joker.

  • Noah

    how many of those attacks on embassies were blamed on a protest instead of terrorism? hm? how many of those happened on the anniversary of the largest terrorist attack on American soil? they could’ve done something since they knew that terrorists like to attack on significant dates (i.e. the anniversary of 9/11) and there were requests for more security.
