Putin vs. Obama

Ol' Vlad, takin' charge. I don't like this guy one bit and I wish we had someone who could face him down.

Morning talk-show host Mark Simone (WOR 710 on your AM dial) placesĀ way too much significance on appearances, in my opinion, but he made a good point this morning about the difference between the image of Vladimir Putin, seen here, exiting a helicopter yesterday with some of his military honchos, and the usual image of President Obama, seen wearing Dad jeans. One guy looks formidable, the other….not so much.

I’m not saying America needs to be led by a “strongman”, far from it. We don’t need a dictator, or anyone who desires to be one, but it’s a tad alarming to see what we’re up against, and what we’ve got.
