Bush Putin

I am not going to research and link, because most folks will remember this event which I will tie to events of yesterday. Early on in the first administration of Bush II, the incumbent president, President Bush had his first meeting with the Russian Premier and made a statement to the effect of "I have looked into his eyes and he has a good heart."

I thought then that the statement the president made was awful simple. Intelligent leaders don't talk like that.

Then yesterday, Mr. Putin kept the Secretaries of State and Defense waiting for forty minutes and then proceeded to lecture them for two hours.

Just shows you how far the standing of the United States has fallen in the last six years.
