    For some reason I’m oddly opinionated about this man... I don’t understand why or my feelings about him.

  4. ^according to Forbes list, that's Xi Jinping, and Putin is number two :p

    But yes, I don't think anyone can deny it, no matter what's their personal view of Putin and his politics.

    I can't deny it with certainty but sincerely doubt it he should be second place on that list. How is it measured/decided anyway. Jingping on 1 makes sense.

    He may not have a clue
    And he may not have style
    But everything he lacks
    Well he makes up in denial
     
  10. I think he is very capable.
    Although one could argue that if he was really so capable and such a good leader, he wouldn't need to resort to murders of political opponents and journalists, and so on.
    I also think that not every country/society/culture is suitable for liberal democracy the way we know it.

    I don't wish russians the exact same system we have, but they deserve something better than this flawed democracy they have now. Many russians think so too it seems. Putin is unfortunately only capable of running the country as he does now it seems. So despite his intelligence he is not the person to move Russia forward (in any way, not just the way i might like). In fact, Putin in his current position is holding it back.

    as soon as the Russian plutocracy ceases to profit from Putin being in power, he will be gone one way or another.

    Sexwise, like what you said, but I think that is true of lots of people in power.

    He is just another dictator in a long line of dictators, the Russians love their dictators, so much so that they get re-elected by 110% of the populace :tongueout:
