Vladi­mir Putin says of Mitt Romney: At least he’s direct




MOSCOW — Soviet leaders used to prefer Republicans to Democrats, in the belief that Republicans were tough but more sincere and, once they made a promise, were more likely to deliver on it.



There has been a whiff of that old way of thinking in recent remarks by President Vladimir Putin, even though plenty has changed in Russia’s relations with the United States. Speaking to reporters last week, Putin said he appreciates GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s bluntness in his denunciations of Russia — because that stance lets Russia know where it stands, and reinforces Putin’s opposition to a missile defense shield in Europe.


www.washingtonpost.com...

Yeah Republicans once make a promise they will keep it, even if it means invading a wrong country unlike the other guy who said this:



The current potus will tell Russia anything they want to hear so where is the condemnation of Romney by Russia?


“That Mr. Romney considers us enemy number one and apparently has bad feelings about Russia is a minus, but, considering that he expresses himself bluntly, openly and clearly, means that he is an open and sincere man, which is a plus,” Putin said after a meeting with Serbia’s president.


Oh that's right those people with the most huff and puff and whine about Romneys russia comment are the people who was never going to vote for him in the first place.

Are you really using Vladimir Putin as a reason to vote for Romney?



Well at least he didn't strap his dog to the top of his motorized hand-glider. :

What?

All I did was post an article for discussion for people to make up their own minds not put words in their mouths.

Putin Said Romney was direct now where in that article did he say people should vote for the guy?

Go on quote it.

I had a thread similar to this awhile back when Putin was quoted as saying he could work with Romney if elected and from that i infered some kind of deeper relationship.

I would love to be a fly on the wall and listen to the type of conversation someone like Putin and Romney would have to say to each other.

I would think Putin would try and dominate the conversation, maybe take his shirt off like his many public advertisements and Romney would eventually say something about war and the economy.....

Oh come on now Neo, none of us is that naive.

If this had come out six months from now you would not have posted it, no matter who won the election.

Truth be told, your mate Romney has put his foot in it so much this election season that even posting a backhanded endorsement from the Russian President seems like a good idea.

If it was a choice between Romney, Obama and Putin, I would vote for Putin.

It really comes down to just one word amongst the players in the world theater.

Mutual Respect
Pardon my Bidenism....

Obama began to lose respect amongst his peers the day he was sworn into office. The man can lie with the best of them and makes me wonder if he was a "seller of mint "Southern" used cars" in a former life.

Might as well just lay Obama out as the door mat to the East entrance of the White House....

Yes, We need a deliberate, in your face, truth telling leader in the White House. John Wayne style preferably.

Too Funny... If the media was actually reporting in an unbiased manner you may have heard the following foot in mouth statements coming from your anointed one.

Uneducated Obama? or Obama could care less? My money is on the latter...

In the space of the last 24 hours, however, the president has committed two offenses against both etiquette and policy that should be reported on extensively.

On Wednesday, in an interview with the Spanish-language network Telemundo, the president was asked about the attacks on two U.S. embassies in North Africa, specifically a breach of America’s embassy in Cairo by crowds of protesters. The Telemundo reporter asked if Obama considered Egypt an ally. Obama replied that the United States did not consider Egypt an ally, “but we don’t consider them an enemy.”

This remark displays a flippant nonchalance about American security policy and a downright antipathy for history and the work of generations of Obama’s predecessors.

The United States, in concert with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, wrestled the key Arab state away from the Soviet sphere of influence during the tenure of President Jimmy Carter. This effort culminated in the 1979 Camp David Accords, which are better known for cementing a lasting peace between Egypt and Israel. The agreement also served as a basis for a lasting partnership between Cairo and Washington — this relationship has safeguarded peace in the region for more than a generation.

By cavalierly saying Egypt is not an ally of the United States, the president has bucked more than 30 years of American foreign policy in a critical region.


More from Obama


Following what can only be correctly described as a gaffe regarding Egypt, the president made what can only be correctly described as a gaffe on the campaign trail.

While attending a campaign rally on Wednesday in Las Vegas – yes, a campaign rally, on a day marked by such solemnity that the press viewed it necessary to harangue Romney for even broaching the subject of politics – President Obama drew a comparison between the sacrifices of his campaign volunteers and those of the American service personnel who lost their lives in Libya just hours prior.


Had all of this come from the mouth of Romney you'd be giddy as a young school girl batting here eye lashes at her first crush....

From your source's source.


Administration officials later said the president was not trying to downgrade the relationship between the U.S. and Egypt. But the remark reflected some U.S. frustration that Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi had not been vigorous enough in his response to a breach Tuesday of the U.S. embassy in Cairo by demonstrators protesting an anti-Muslim film.

Obama: Egypt not an ally or enemy

Would you rather he didn't tell a fledgling government to get its act together without outright threats?

Yep, I agree that was less than tactful.
