"Let's see, Putin has a 77% favorable rating with Russians, which compares with Ronald Reagan's best."
How dare you place that KGB pig in the same line as America's greatest president (Ronald Reagan) of the 20th century.
The anti-Western, terrorist exporting Axis of Evil régimes are the identical collection of thugs Czar Putin is arming to the teeth today.
Russian weapons, sold by Putin, to those Axis of Evil dictatorships & their cohorts, are murdering American troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, but what do you care as long as your boy Putin has the best public relations you can provide.
Your own anti-American propaganda speaks loud and clear.
"If Westerners worried that Russian President Vladimir Putin would escalate the stinging war of words with the Bush administration, notably the combative Vice President Dick Cheney, they can rest easy. .."
"..I now spend a lot of time in Moscow running the American University in Moscow,..."
(I bet you do at that, "comrade".)
This weekend we had a Special Forces Association meeting, and they had nothing but good to say about the relaionship between America and Russia. Indeed, Roger Donlon, Medal of Honor winner, told of marching in a parade in Moscow. They were pro-Russia and told of having good relationships with Spetsnaz. The only KGB pig here appears to be your little bitter mind.
Oh wait...this thread is not about Bibi. [I'm blushing now.]
BTW, you have many great Putin photos!
