Hillary Clinton Calls Putin 'A Tough Guy With Thin Skin'
NBCnews ^ | First published March 5th 2014, 3:31 pm | Carrie Dann

Posted on 03/05/2014 3:58:59 PM PST by gooblah

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday called Russian President Vladimir Putin a "tough guy with a thin skin" and said he is "squandering the potential" of Russia with his aggressive posture in Ukraine.

"I know we are dealing with a tough guy with a thin skin," she said during a speech at UCLA, citing her experiences with Putin during her time at the State Department.

"I know that his political vision is of a greater Russia," she added. "I said when I was still secretary that his goal is to re-Sovietize Russia’s periphery, but in the process he is squandering the potential of such a great nation, the nation of Russia, and threatening instability and even the peace of Europe."

Hillary Clinton is a reptile in a somewhat human body.

She will say anything to make herself look tough, because the Witch wants to be president.

If Putin, whom I no doubt suffers from an inflated ego has a thin skin, then ohomo is a balsa wood skeleton glazed in a corn syrup based cellulose, and it just started to rain.

Having a strategy in dealing with Russian or for that matter Chinese ambitions would be better than name calling. Maybe this is why we are where we are today.

Perhaps Obama would go after Putin more if he thought Putin was a Conservative, maybe he can get his buddy Lois Lerner to audit him

Funny how they just keep goading Russia toward a confrontation. Almost like they need a war to help erase the mess they created. And a bunch of bitter clingers along with it.

Good point. We need answers and leadership, and she offers, to paraphrase, "Putin has a thin skin, na, na, nana, na".

Hmmmm ... that would remove a hell of a lot of their voters from the rolls.

Oh, wait -- if we got into a nuclear war, they could declare an "emergency" (having nothing to do with the real emergency) and start rounding up and shooting Tea Party people. Then they wouldn't need those 'Rat hordes after all.

Overall we have a Dem party too stupid to remember to wipe, and a GOP to cowardly or in collusion to do anything about it. On the other side of the sea we have Putin who cares not a whit what wither think as they have shown nothing but weakness to him.

So once we are humiliated enough, we will either just bend over further or some people will have to stand up and lead. Them’s the choices.

Not as far fetched considering Ayres wanted to to basically that sans the nukes. And he is a ‘close advisor’.

Yes, Hillary, tell us something we don't know.

The problem we have, Houston, is that when Putin gets angry, you won't like what he does.

And with YOUR president, Obama, and your feckless foreign policy, and Hagel's decimation of the military for political correctness reasons, guess what happens next?

Do you REALLY want to run on your "record", Mrs. Clinton?

According to Drudge, “Clinton compares Putin to Hitler.”

In response, I’ll bet that Putin compares Clinton to Hitler.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. The Hildabeast has the thin-est skin in DC. If she could do it, she would have anyone that criticizes her horsewhipped. She is a serious grudge holder.

Putin would take that as a compliment.

He is a tough guy.
Proved it over and over again.

He has a thin skin, being a natural blond, contrary to Hillary.

What else is new?

No, Ayers the Weatherman wanted to round up and shoot Norman Rockwell's America, and especially the educated professionals, not the pullulating mobs that infest the inner cities, or the gilt-edged bohemians who live in Tribeca and SoHo.

Exactly so. She's mental when it comes to holding grudges.

Look up the Wildlands Project/Turtle Island that Ayres fellow travelers in the Mainstream enviro movement like Sierra Club and the United nations lent their names and full support to.

It calls for a couple hundred thousand people in America. Tops. And that means a whole lot less liberals as well as us.

I began studying it and writing about it over a decade ago. It is quite real and info on it is there for anyone that cares to look. It sounds totally nuts. And it is. Which is what they rely on to move their agenda onward. No one takes it seriously. But they do.

Putin may be a ‘tough guy with thin skin’ but he also has about 8000 nuclear weapons and the second largest airforce and Navy in the world, and army fully equipped with non-treaty limited nuclear weapons(Thank you Obama) for that matter.

Are we really at the point of international relations between major powers being reduced to name calling? Is that REALLY all this administration is capable of because if it is we may end up in a nuclear war.

Hillary’s “Reset/Overload” button just may be the eventual launching of nukes out of our administration’s sheer incompetence and stupidity as is ever more evident as every day passes.
