Skip to comments.Biden to Putin: I don't think 'you have a soul'
Posted on 07/21/2014 1:55:51 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
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 Putins office in the Kremlin.
I had an interpreter, and when he was showing me his office I said, Its amazing what capitalism will do, wont 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, Im looking into your eyes, and I dont think you have a soul.
Pressed on if the anecdote was true, Biden confirmed, absolutely, positively.

Coming from the idiot, Biden, I’m sure Putin took the remark as a compliment.
Putin to Biden - “I don’t think you have a brain”.
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.
Ahh, you beat me to it!
LOL, you beat me to it! 8^)
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’.
Where’s that Hillary reset button Biden?
I said, Mr. Prime Minister, Im looking into your eyes, and I dont 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.
Exactly. He has no credibility or gravitas whatsoever. Who would believe anything the guy says? He’s political clown.
This was posted earlier today. This comment was hilarious.
...and Putin looked Biden in the eye and said, You have no brain. I can see the roots of your plugs................

But I have the Crimea, and I’m coming for more
Good point. I think you’re right. Scripted comment all the way. Biden is incapable of an original comment.
Its so awfully smart and such GOOD US foreign policy to make petty smart a$$ remarks to a former KGB officer who controls enough nukes to destroy the world ...
like we might never need to have Putin to COOPERATE with us on anything ...
The Joe Biden who said he had a full academic scholarship?
The Joe Biden who said he voted against the Iraq and Afghanistan wars ...
The Joe Biden who said his wife was killed by a drunk driver ...
The Joe Biden who said he was in the room for negotiations to save Security ...
The Joe Biden who said FDR got on television after the Stock Market crash ...
The Joe Biden who said his family were poor coal miners ...
We are supposed to believe that out of no where Biden breaks out a line about whether Putin has a soul.
Was this before or after Biden complimented Russia for their porn? You have to put this event into context.
The pot calls the kettle black.
I am highly skeptical that this might be true.
If it were, Biden would have blabbed it long ago, one strongly suspects.
And, even if it were true, one of the principles of diplomacy is never to publicly insult or embarrass the person with whom you must negotiate. Reprisals just might be another concern.
BTW, IIRC, aren't these are the same Dems who gave away much in defense negotiations to Mister Putin (and his representatives), and had once promised to be more "flexible"?
Putin is a total psychopath who is probably personally responsible for the deaths of multiple people (before he became president of Russia). There simply is NO WAY Biden the Bumbler would have the balls to look Putin in the eye and say something like that, and there ain’t enough booze in the world to give him those balls. Biden probably pissed himself just saying hello.
Funding its very enemies has been a US practice ever since the UN was created, and always our presidents have supported that foolishness.
Putin to Biden: “I don’t think your boss has accessories”.
“absolutely positively bullcrap”
He should know since I’m don’t think Biden has a soul either.
True. In the kingdom of the blind, one-eyed man is king. In a roomful of idiots, the mere imbecile is a genius.
And Joe hasn’t a brain!
Boy, we're really going to get the Obama administration with the Lois Ler....
I agree, these are the buffoons of America, kerry, biden, pelosi, reid, mccain, graham, the list continues,
It’s as if they think their heroes in some fawning reality TV show where they’re the idol of millions, where they’re used to expressing any whim and their surrounding sycophantic followers are always nodding in agreement,
KGB putin hasn’t drunk the same koolaid, I think it might surprise some of them to realize that,
The world is starting to burn around them, but they think their immune from it, that it will never come to their doorstep,
Its these kinds of moments that can create fractures in relationships, that when some dark day does come, it can quickly escalate beyond what anyone believes is possible, or even unthinkable,
America has been given over to vain, arrogant, petulant, corrupt, botoxed rulers with reprobate minds,
Collectively, our nation and its pleasure seeking entitlement population have raised up leaders just like they are, and so far the pain has been minimal, but the strain is beginning to show and we’re starting our decent, we’re sliding down from the mountain top and we’ll soon pick up speed before hitting bottom,
LOL! Ya never know what your crazy Uncle Joe is going to say when someone lets him out of the attic. No barrier between brain and mouth.
At least that is probably how Putin looks at him.
Anyone else think the Russians might be more concerned about Biden EVER being president of the USA than is half of America?
