Post by: Lyin' Steve on July 08, 2016, 02:08:17 am
In honor of our soviet friend who earnestly believes Putin would make a wonderful leader of the United States, which foreign leader would you like to have leading us?

Who ever that won't place austerity on our economy and will invest in our nation. I am tired of the cuts on areas that never caused the problem in the first place.

Putin cannot make a US leader because he is a homophobe.

Kim Jong-Un by far. He would use the nuclear capability of the U.S full.

Considering the US is one of the last bastions of Christianity where there are still many "true believers", Pope Francis is perfect.

Trudeau and Merkel would both do a fine job running the US.

If I had to pick from one of the ones in the poll, probably Merkel.

Out of all foreign leaders? Probably someone like Estonia's Taavi Rőivas, Netherlands' Mark Rutte, or Luxembourg's Xavier Bettel.

Of course I try to stir the pot. But of this dire list, I do believe that Putin would be the best. I agree with others that Harper or Netanyahu would be better than any of the above.

Entirely leaving aside all the other reasons why you wouldn't want a power-hungry, murderous autocrat in charge of your country... Have you paid any attention to what Putin's rule has actually brought to Russia lately?

I'd hate having Putin as my dictator President, but you can't deny that he gets his goals accomplished internationally.

Plus he isn't exactly wrong about Assad or the Crimea.

However, out of these Trudeau.

Viktor Orban, though considering all of this anti-police mess, possibly Rodrigo Duterte.

Out of these, probably Hassan Rouhani.

In retrospect, I might amend my suggestion because I forgot to mention Narendra Modi, who has a pretty good track record on managing a giant, diverse country.

On the other hand, his record in Gujarat on law and order was pretty miserable, so I might stick with Duterte.

Thanks, but I don't deserve the honor of figuring on your sig. I just plagiarized.

For me it was close between Bibi and Modi but i chose Bibi because of his familiarity with US politics .
But both Bibi and Modi wouldnt be as good as presidents as Reagan, HW Bush, Clinton

What's funny is that the neoconservatives and their liberal internationalist lackeys can't make up their mind - is Russia a gas station with an army or a foe worthy of a second Cold War?

The former is more likely. I think Putin has overestimate Russia's strength and ability to project power beyond their immediate borders. Granted the current Washington class isn't much better but I wouldn't want any US commander-in-chief with that mentality.

It's way, way too early to judge but I'd write in Tsai Ing-wen. China, not Russia, is the one to watch.

Even though I prefer Francois Hollande, I think that Putin would connect most with the American people.
