It is obvious Putin will have no respect for Teh One. If Obama could only see how weak he looks as a world leader he would go and jump out of an airplane at 35,000 feet (he could take Mu-shell with him).
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin praised the hospitality and openness of U.S. former President George W. Bush in a telegramme sent hours before meeting his successor Barack Obama.
"During the last years we have been working on strengthening Russia-U.S. cooperation. Although there were differences between our countries, I always valued your openness and sincerity," Putin said, congratulating Bush on his 63rd birthday on July 6.
"With special warmth I recall your hospitality in the Crawford ranch and your family estate in Kennebunkport," Putin wrote, referring to their 2007 meeting at the Bush family vacation home when the two leaders went fishing and ate lobster.
Maybe Obama can get some sympathy from fellow dictatorial thug Hugo (I'm a pirate) Chavez.
