Nigel Farage

When asked whether the situation with the rouble was a result of his annexation of Crimea, Vladamir Putin responded:

Sometimes I think, maybe they’ll let the bear eat berries and honey in the forest, maybe they will leave it in peace.

They will not. Because they will always try to put him on a chain, and as soon as they succeed in doing so they tear out his fangs and his claws.

Once they’ve taken out his claws and his fangs, then the bear is no longer necessary. He’ll become a stuffed animal.

He is prone to both rhetorical and visual excess (flying around with birds, bare-chested hunting, etc.),….but even so Putin is not just colorful, he has a way of making his point and sometimes doing so in unusual and dramatic fashion.  There’s a reason the Russian people overall are behind him…just as there is a reason the American people are no longer behind the man who has become his nemesis, Barack Hussein Obama.
