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.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
