We’re not exactly pro-Putin here at FR. We know full well he is a KGB thug who regrets the fall of the USSR. He is also a Russian nationalist which is bad news for the West (Russians are proudly non-Western).
But, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” applies here. In 2016 Hillary, as a member of the same party as Obama, will have to run with, not against, her predecessor’s record. That’s already going to be a profoundly difficult task.
Putin is about to hand Obama his @ss over Syria. Bottom line. Let Hillary take that and run with it.
Then too, Putin is pro-Christian and anti-fag, so he can’t be all bad.
You know he’s a KGB thug. I’m not sure all of the posters do. I think it’s like praising Old Joe Stalin because he’s fighting Hitler. I won’t pretend either Putin or Obama is a Christian or a Conservative. If that upsets some, then fine.
