Obama: Putin will lose — eventually

Quote
BRUSSELS — President Barack Obama said Wednesday that Vladimir Putin is just the latest in a series of history’s losers, comparing the Russian leader to those who came up short in World War I, World War II, the Cold War, the U.S. civil rights movement, apartheid and other major 20th-century struggles.

Time’s on his side, Obama argued. People always struggle to be free and eventually succeed — and they will in Russia too, even if, for now, it’s ruled by a flouter of international law and obstinate believer in “that recycled maxim that might, somehow, makes right.”

Putin won't lose while Obummer is president. Leave it Obama, Putin will own the US.

Nah, even that gives Obuttocks too much credibility and skill.

Obama didn't learn much about world history in his Indonesian Muslim school, I'd say.
Just being unique doesn't make you useful.
