The leader of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, said on Wednesday that world leaders should not be married because their wives change them, RIA Novosti reported.
According to Zhirinovsky, US President Barack Obama has started to look bad because of his wife Michelle.

"Let [Michelle] stay somewhere far away [from Barack] so that he can work his remaining years [as president]. We saved [Italian Prime Minister Silvio] Berlusconi from these wifely problems, now it's time to save Obama," he said.

Not sure about the wifeless Prrsidents...but getting rid of Greenpeace is a good idea.
I bet George Soros doesn’t like Zhirinovsky, either
I think he meant Reggie Love and Kal Penn.
If this article were from a British publication I would be tempted to call it satire.
That line of BO turning green and getting more wrinkles is kind of leading my ‘suspicion’....
They inadvertently make a good point (although it isn’t the point they wanted to make).
Ronald and Nancy Reagan were a real husband and wife, so she added to him.
George and Barbara Bush were a real husband and wife, so she added to him.
Bill and Hillary Clinton were a marriage made of political necessity. She permitted him to get into sexual trouble with other women to further her own political career.
George W. and Laura Bush were a real husband and wife.
Barack and Michelle Obama are a marriage made to “prove” Barack’s heterosexuality.
Maybe he was poisoned....
I have a good friend from Russia. Everyone regards this guy as a joker & comedian & not a serious political threat to anybody. He good for a laugh though :)
Greenpeace is a terrorist organization and should be treated as such. But on the “wifeless” president thing he brought up Lewinsky. Ummm, she wasn’t Clinton’s wife....
Direct result of cheaply available vodka. Or satire
Almost got me again - but ya didn't.
