Forbes: Putin More Powerful Than Obama

Vladimir Putin and Barack Obama SC

Forbes magazine, which compiles an annual list of the most powerful leaders in the world, has replaced Barack Obama with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the top of the chart. Obama now sits in the number two spot.

Citing numerous reasons for the decision, Obama’s glaring lack of leadership over the past several months was a major factor for Forbes.

“Putin has solidified his control over Russia,” the report stated, “while Obama’s lame duck period has seemingly set in earlier than usual for a two-term president.”

The recent federal government shutdown proved how ineffective his presidency has become, the article noted.

Recent squabbles between the two top leaders have overwhelmingly favored Putin, Forbes determined. Detailing events such as Russia’s willingness to take in fugitive Edward Snowden after the former intelligence operative leaked classified documents from the National Security Agency, Forbes concluded that Putin has a better grasp on his position than does his American counterpart.

Furthermore, the magazine applauded Putin’s role in cooling Syrian tensions after Obama threatened a military strike on the troubled nation.

“Anyone watching this year’s chess match over Syria and NSA leaks has a clear idea of the shifting individual power dynamics,” the report concluded.

The list’s top-ranking woman, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, is also involved in a war of words with Obama. She is among several foreign leaders upset with the NSA’s policy of spying on ally nations.

While Americans in general believe we are uniquely blessed and capable of being a great force for good throughout the world, Obama and his ilk are more interested in being one of many indistinguishable nations. As a result, it has not been just Obama’s standing that has taken a dip, but that of the entire U.S.

Before it is too late, we must once again elect a president who actively wants to see America at the top of every power list. Until then, we remain at the mercy of the dictators and despots with whom Obama is so anxious to compromise.

  1. As Ex-KGB, Putin is one very intelligent man.
    He has a charisma that he "earned."
    He defends the Christians and blasts Obama for NOT helping as he talks about his own Baptism (it is on You Tube).

      Really? I had no idea, bu it is nice that at least something nice can be said about him, not so Obama!! Obama is very intelligent but his intelligence is directed only at evil purposes.

      • I have read many of your posts. I'd like to tell you why I respect you. We "could" have argued due to "false pride"….we didn't.
        You have the ability to stretch to encompass new information you didn't know before. I have always tried to be like that also. That IS how we both learn, isn't it….thank you for being you.

      • Evermyrtle: People believe he is intelligent. However, the truth is he has had not one accomplishment to date in any area of his life, from babyhood through the presidency. He's earned absolutely nothing and got where he is by affirmative action and corruption. The one and only thing he has pulled off is the biggest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. He actually has very little innate intelligence. Don't you wonder why he and moochie-elle had their law licenses taken away from them? They call it "surrendered". Professionals never surrender a license except for criminal activity and they are forced into surrendering it to protect the public. Americans are blinded for some unknown reason. The information is out there; from him being a homosexual all of his life, to the Down Low lifestyle, to the bathhouses he was a member (Man's Country), Larry Sinclair, moochie-elle being his beard for his sham marriage, and his criminal activities. What I REALLY wonder is what kind of a country have we become to allow this to take place? We are the laughing stock of the world…. So pathetically sad.

  4. Painfully that is true —- no thanks to O demeaning America and spending taxpayers money these past years

  5. Mike Warren says:

    Soetoro/Obama invaded Syria with his Muslim Brotherhood armies. Putin supported its Allie, Syria, against the invasion by American. Putin is in the Right; America is in the Wrong.

    Russia and its Allies are led by a man, Putin. America who now has no Allies is led by a sissy boy faggot.

    My money and future are on Putin.

  6. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    The Clown-in-chief has lied so many times that Putin looks like honest Abe. I know he thinks Americans are a bunch of idiots (and they are, look at reality TV), but finally the majority are asking questions. Obama is an odd combination of a habitual, unabashed liar and self-deceived egomaniac. He really seems to believe his own BS (especially his unverified past, why does his past have to be so secretive. Can’t congress obtain any locked files?), and expects the rest of us to believe it too, he is now seen by the majority as weak, ineffective, and deceiving. He is an anti-American liar unworthy of anyone’s trust.

  7. so he is # 2, he has never been #1 with the Americans or elsewhere! When is the cleaning crew coming to clean up the WH? Can't be soon enough!
