I’ve heard many people talking about this recently, so I thought I’d put up a readers’ poll.
Personally, I’d go with Putin in a heartbeat. The anti-Russia sentiment in the USA now almost entirely stems from a group of neocons who are still angry because (1) things that allegedly happened to their Ashkenazi grandparents and great-grandparents a long time ago Russia and (2) Putin thought it better for Russian resources to be controlled by ethnic Russians rather than a small cadre of oligarchs.
Putin may be no angel, but at least he kicked out the corrupt oligarchs, is making efforts to curb immigration, is stabilizing white birthrates (although the “demographic crisis” is a myth), and has not let Russia’s ethnic ancestral traditions be completely trashed by globalist Cultural Marxists. And Putin’s just a cool-looking alpha.
And not only is Putin more athletic than Obama, he also is better educated. While the “internationalist” Obama only has somewhat mastered English, the more “isolationist” Putin knows Russian, German and English. (Funny thing, that. The “isolationist” Calvin Coolidge knew Latin, Greek, German, French and Italian, and the “isolationist” ancient Spartans had the best army of their time.)
