In a surprise visit Russian President Vladimir Putin dropped in on U.S. Olympic headquarters Friday to chat about the Winter Games and the upcoming Russia-U.S. hockey showdown. He even wore a red 'Happy Valentine's Day from Team USA' pin on his lapel. Putin spent about half an hour at USA House in Sochi's Olympic Park, sitting on a couch talking with U.S. Olympic Committee chairman Larry Probst and CEO Scott Blackmun. From there, he made a stop at Canada House next door.

Maybe he plans to run in the US presidential election, in 2016, after his term is up in Russia?

He would be an improvement over Obama or Hillary.

Well Putin is coming off internationally as having not only core family values, but also class. Obama is the diametrical opposite. What are his strengths? Obama has not even one quality one would want in a national leader.

Ah, the Irony Curtain.

Russia’s PR is doing a good job of exploiting the political discontent kindled by the Marxists here in the U.S.

While we’re limping along, maybe we’ll see some positive growth in Russia.

Russia won the war on classical music. It has much to be proud for.

WAS a KGB Communist.

Remember, the month after zero was "elected", Putin warned the USA "not to go down the road to communism because that is what destroyed Russia."

Putin know first hand communism doesn't work. Zero and his henchmen will never figure it out.

From Canadian media he visited the Canadians right after his USA one. He made quite an impression since the crowd there were shouting Rossiya Rossiya as he left.

Is Putin taking the 2 weeks off? Doesn't he have a country to run, or something?

Bingo.

Who has become a Christian nation and turned away from socialism. America are you getting the hint yet?

Actually this makes me wonder. Who will he have at the White House first and who will be slighted or last? Will it be the 2014 NBA Championship team, Seattle Seahawks or 2014 Winter Olympic Medalists?

He probably spends more time running his country than the golf playing idiot we have in the Oval Office, so don’t complain.

Putin, schooling obama, again. IMHO Putin would be a better President than obama. Love us or hate us Putin seems to have the skills and integrity to do the job right. obama, not so much.

Do you really think he is taking off...like on a Obama vacay...?

Considering the Olympics are in Russia.....don’t you think he should be there....

It’s sort of an important event ....

Liberals of any religion are legitimate targets and it’s hard to overlook the Catholic Church’s refusal to deal with Pelosi,Notre Dame etc. Having said that, the Catholic Church has stood it’s ground in a number of areas that are being lost by many Protestant denominations.
