Putin Calls Hillary Clinton A 'Weak' Woman
Sky News ^ | 06-05-2014 | Sky News US Team

Posted on 06/05/2014 2:54:10 PM PDT by PaulCruz2016

Russian president Vladimir Putin has taken a swipe at former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, describing her as "weak" in disparaging remarks about women.

Mr Putin was asked about Ms Clinton's recent comparison of the Russian leader's Ukraine policy to Adolf Hitler's aggression in Eastern Europe in the 1930s.

In his interview with French television, Mr Putin said: "It's better not to argue with women. But Mrs Clinton has never been too graceful in her statements."

Mr Putin said that he met Ms Clinton when she was America's top diplomat "and had cordial conversations at various international events. I think even in this case we could reach an agreement."

But he said he found her attempts draw a parallel between him and Hitler too much.

"When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak," said Mr Putin.

Speaking ahead of an official trip to France, he added: "But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman."

I've always pegged Hillary as a weak woman. She's not strong enough to keep her husband faithful to her. On the other hand, I think of strong women like my wife, or Sarah Palin

I doubt Todd would ever want to be unfaithful to her....but if he was, his a$$ would be grass.

Somehow it sounds like Putin is correct in his assessment of Hitlery

Not only is Hillary weak , she is a liar , 2 faced and deceitful. Also cunning and vengeful . Exactly the kind of person many Democrats would see as an ideal U.S. President to best represent THEIR interests .F them all , they are only marginally Americans . Their best purpose would be found in assisting to develop infrastructure improvement projects.

It is a little scary to be so often in agreement with Putin, in so far as obama and hitlery are concerned.

Hillary rules with a fist. Of course it’s Huma’s and it’s elbow deep.

Putin is wrong about Hitlery, -she's a strong woman and would be an ideal wife for Putin. We just don't want her kind of government. One bad one is enough, definitely not two. But I'm sure the feminists and liberal socialists will want her as she is their type.

“But maybe weakness is not the worst quality for a woman.”

That would be one of the BEST qualities for Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless.

Think how damaging Herself would be if she COULD muster some real strength.

Godzilla would tremble. In anticipation, as the attraction grew.

Sexual tension is such a curse.

(Try getting THAT picture out of your head.)

Putin is right, at least as far as Hillary being weak towards America's enemies. But then so is everyone else hewing to a similar political ideology.

I sincerely hope my saying 'Putins right' doesn't offend anyone.

Assessing Hillary’s strength is easy: just list the things she’s actually done...

No offense taken; some times even a brutal, murderous, KGB dictator can be right.
Remember even Hitler was right about the Western Democracies being weak, indecisive and and vacillating until May of 1941.

I wonder if Putin will call President Cruz a weakling?

Real question.

"When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak," said Mr Putin.

Putin should know. He is the one who has pushed too far across the boundaries of his nation's border and into the territory of his neighbors. He does this not because he is strong but because he is weak. He invaded Crimea in an act of desperation because he has lost Ukraine. Putin is terrified of NATO, the most powerful military force in history.
