Do you admire Putin's leadership over Obama?

  Forget about party affiliation. Just a curious question.

Admite?  I know what you meant, maybe a mod can edit the title.  Dictators are not admirable.

One is a very strong leader and the other is a certified weenie.
Several are on "ignore".   I won't argue with the ignorant and disrespectful..

Obama didn't steal the Oval Office, he was elected whether we like him or not.  Also he doesn't raid the US Treasury.  I am not a fan of Obama, though I do prefer him to a Soviet throwback dictator.

He did usurp authority that is not allotted to the presidency such as "I have a pen and I have a phone".  This is what you actually said.

I don't like Putin, but I think he has an innate contempt for weakness

How has Obama "enriched himself" as President? Oh....just more lies from a lying rightwinger!

On the other hand Bush and Cheney certainly enriched themselves and their oil company buddies with their ill conceived invasion of Iraq.

The fact that GW Bush isn't rotting in a cell somewhere pretty much says all that needs to be said about American politics. No accountability at all.

You could substitute Charles Manson for Putin and teabaggers on here would vote for Manson.
If every black male 18-35 applied for a conceal & carry permit, and then joined the NRA in one day; there would be gun control laws in a second.

I think the same could be said of Castro and the American Left
