Do we need an American Putin?

Russian Premier Vladimir Putin is not a nice guy. He is belligerent, steely-eyed, cold, and plain-spoken. He says exactly what he means, and is not afraid of the repercussions from the international media or anyone else. I’m sure that the current American “leadership” sickens him with its pathetic political correctness.

Putin answered a question about his attacks against Chechnya Islamic terrorists in a 2008 G-8 press conference. His response was direct and cold as ice. Essentially, allowing for translation inaccuracies, he said if you come into Russia we’ll cut your n*ts off.

The video of this is awe inspiring. It is very “Dirty Harry” ala Clint Eastwood. There is no doubt where he stands, and he doesn’t care what anyone else in the room thinks. This is a leader. You may not like him, but you have to respect him.

Contrast this with our “fearless leader” Obama. Three full days after the event, he finally addresses the nation from a Marine base in Hawaii. He starts the speech, “Hey, guys.” Hey, guys? What is this, another friendly “shout out” to his vacation pals in Hawaii?
His rhetoric is vintage milquetoast. It inspires nothing. He ends with, “Thank you very much, everybody, and Happy New Year.” WHAT? We are being attacked! What don’t you understand about flaming explosive underwear?

Our great country is withering and dying in many ways, but the most obvious one is the lack of any credible leadership. Putin and Obama are similar in that they are both pathological narcissists. The contrast between the two is the difference between Andy Taylor and Barney Fife.
