‘We won!’ Teary-eyed Putin proclaims victory (PHOTOS, VIDEO)
http://rt.com/news/putin-win-supporters-speech-827/ ^

Posted on 03/04/2012 1:55:44 PM PST by kronos77

Vladimir Putin, set to win a third presidential term, declared his victory and thanked his voters for their support. Polling at over 64 percent with over half of the votes counted, victory seems assured.

"We have won in an open and fair struggle," Putin said addressing 110,000 people, who gathered on Manezhnaya Square outside the Kremlin walls.

He stressed that this victory signals a defeat for those who want to destroy Russia.

“This was more than just a presidential election this was a very important test for us – a test for political maturity of our people and independence. We have demonstrated that nobody can impose anything on us we have shown that our people are capable of telling the difference between the desire for novelty and progress from political provocations that pressure with only one goal – to destroy Russia. Today our people have proved that such scenarios are not going to work in our country,” Putin said.

"We will work honestly and intensely and we will achieve success we encourage you all to unite for the benefit of our or nation and out homeland."

Putin, who is likely to win the election with over 60 per cent of the vote, appeared on stage with outgoing President Dmitry Medvedev, who also thanked all of Putin’s supporters.

I have always wondered due to his strange physical (facial) looks if he is of Chinese heritage or some other oriental background.

Does anyone else have an opinion?

Thank you.

My point being at least Putin defends his nation’s interests, unlike Obama.

I agree in showmanship. The man is a KGB tyrant who has been controlling the nation for decades. And, you support him. I half like you ;).

No, I don’t support him. He is a tyrant, and a monster.

You obviously support Obama. I half like you too. :)

in russia as in the US, elections are just a means to appease the masses

Political Hit-Job in the Windy City: Barack Obama and the New Year's Massacre Dear Fellow Conservative: Chicago, 1996. State Senator Alice Palmer (D-Ill.) never saw it coming...

The popular activist, running for re-election (she'd won the previous election with a landslide 82% of the vote), was a sure thing keep her seat. But on the day after New Year's 1996, a small army of lawyers filed into the hearing room of the Chicago Board of Elections. In a blink, Alice Palmer's name had been struck from the ballot. So, too, were the names of three other candidates on the Democratic primary ballot — all eliminated on the basis of minor "violations," most of them as picayune as not crossing a "t" or failure to dot an "i." When the dust settled only a single name remained on the ballot: Barack Hussein Obama. He "swept" to victory... unopposed.

Winning is one thing—ruling wisely is another. Lets see what he does to build up his sorry land. He has a lot of work to do. Putin may well be a proto-tyrant but I do feel he’s a patriot to his nation.

Putin defends his nation's interests? How?

By robbing his people blind, nationalizing the oil and gas, the banks and media? By making enemies out of all of Russia neighbors and making an enemy out of the USA and supporting all of America's terrorist enemies? BY destroying the Russian people's freedom and throwing anyone who opposes his regime into jail or worse?

This is what you call defending a country's interests? I'm sorry but you are very wrong, and if you think that someone like Putin is what we should have here in the USA, then you are a very unwise person whose counsel should never be heeded on any important matter. If you think Putin defends his people interests then you are a total fool. Putin is a traitor to his people as he has been all his entire life. He enslaved his people to Communism when he loyally served the KGB and he has enslaved his people again to Putinist fascism. Fools who admire Putin's tyranny disgust me to no end.
