Biden to Putin: I don't think 'you have a soul'
The Hill ^ | 7/21/14 | Justin Sink

Vice President Biden told Vladimir Putin that he did not believe the Russian leader had “a soul” during a visit to the Kremlin in 2011, the vice president said in a New Yorker magazine interview published Monday.

Biden said the incident occurred while he was touring Putin’s office in the Kremlin.

“I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, ‘It’s amazing what capitalism will do, won’t it? A magnificent office!’ And he laughed. As I turned, I was this close to him,” Biden said, signaling that the two leaders were standing just inches apart. “I said, ‘Mr. Prime Minister, I’m looking into your eyes, and I don’t think you have a soul.’”

Pressed on if the anecdote was true, Biden confirmed, “absolutely, positively.”

The only people Obama has embraced and made happy during his term: Muslim Brotherhood and Iranian mullahs.

Period. Full Stop. End of Story.

Coming from the idiot, Biden, I’m sure Putin took the remark as a compliment.

Not exactly. He has made leftists in Europe very happy too. And his buddy Putin. Never mind the Red Chinese for his lack of action in the Pacific, South China Sea and Sea of Japan.

It was just made up yesterday so somebody in the administration can pretend to not be an idiot.

Imagine you’re in a group of people looking for somebody to pass off as savvy, tough and intelligent and somehow Biden’s your best option.

Personally, I think this was a scripted comment in order to focus attention on Bush’s comment, years ago (that some of us cannot let go).

Joe Biden has such a well-documented history of lying and plagiarism that I wouldn’t believe him if he told me my own name was ‘Bob’.

“I said, ‘Mr. Prime Minister, I’m looking into your eyes, and I don’t think you have a soul.’”

************

When Putin looked back at Biden’s eyes all he saw was a vacant, empty stare. The lights were on but nobody was home.

♫ I could wile away the hours
Conferrin' with the flowers
Consultin' with the rain
And my head I'd be scratchin'
While my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain ♫

Exactly. He has no credibility or gravitas whatsoever. Who would believe anything the guy says? He’s political clown.
