Americans believe Putin is a better leader than Obama

When it comes to the Syrian civil war, President Obama has so humiliated himself and the United States that a majority of Americans now believe Russian President Vladimir Putin is the better leader on the issue. A new YouGov poll shows that the former KGB henchman is outwitting the so-called ‘intellectual genius’ that is Barack Obama.

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

“Americans now believe that Putin is a better leader on Syria than our President. There’s a new poll out. It’s not even close. 49% of Americans gave the nod to Putin, only 25% to our President.”

“Can you think of a time in American history where that would have happened? Can you think of a time when Americans would have said, ‘Oh, yeah. Khrushchev was far better than Kennedy on this thing. I agree with him on that,’” Pat said. “We’ve come a long way in a pretty short time. It’s really chilling. And that doesn’t mean Americans like Putin better. It’s just that he crushed our President on this issue.”

“Which world leader was least effective during the Syrian chemical weapons crisis,” Glenn asked. “Another one: Our president got 44%, Putin received 10%. Wow.”

“And it’s not even just the answer. It’s the margin,” Stu added. “Vladimir Putin is winning polls in this country by 2 and 3 to 1 margins.”

“And yet his approval rating is still pretty high,” Pat said.

“There is a new poll out today from Reuters that, you know, if you want to be optimistic does show a little movement here,” Stu said. “Approval for our President at 39%. 55% disapprove… Now that includes 22% of Democrats disapproving., 88% of Republicans, and 69% of Independents.”

“He better hope that this fundamental transformation is truly done, and I believe it is,” Glenn said. “But he better hope that that’s done because when people start to really feel the effects of universal healthcare, anybody who stood for it [is done].”

    You know you failed as a leader when Putin beats you in poll but yet liberals still think he is god’s chosen one.Which is sad.

    Obama is officially worse than Jimmy Carter and Chamberlain combined into one. He will go down in history with more scorn on his name than Benedict Arnold.

    Goes to the heart of liberalism and the soul destroying sickness it really is: they worship a man, who is insane, as a god in the flesh.

    This is just funny does everyone remember when the left side if you vote Obama then America will get the respect of the entire international community. He made us even a bigger laughing stock of the entire world.

    Good analogy.

    I believe that throne belongs to GW Bush . . . and many will agree with me.
    Look at the record:
    2 wars unpaid for, worse economic crisis since the Great Depression, most hated President around the World, he stole an election, Biggest tax cut for the upper rich, Blackwater, President with more vacations ever, less secure border in 8 years, and the list goes on and on. Anything else??

    Quite to the contrary, Obama is the worst around.

    Under Bush, the economy thrived, unemployment went well below 5%, and all only turned for the worse when the Democrats took control of the House and the Senate.

    Obama has failed completely save for making our nation the most reviled and disrespected in the world.

    His economic policies have failed
    His foreign policies have failed
    He has committed treason across the board
    He has armed, aided and abetted international terrorists
    His interference in Syria are international war crimes
    His abetting of radicals committing genocide in Sudan are crimes against humanity.

    The list goes on and on.

    No one believes he is the chosen one . . . conservatives brought that gimmick when he won his second term. Even Rebloodicans met in private few days after he won in 2008 with the sole purpose of creating a plan to opposse everything he said or do.
    What is sad if the current conservative paradox. Now the GOP is highly divided and the Dems might won in 2016 again if you guys keep it up. My father used to tell me . . . “Kid, when someone is that bad, let him/her fall on their own cause there is not substance. But if you continue to hit the drums and calling names for no reason others will start to think that you are a hater with no plan and no ideas” . . . That’s exactly what is happening with the GOP and the conservatives now. . . They have NO IDEAS, NO PLAN . . . ONLY BARK, YELL, and STUPIDITY.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rigoberto.serrano.39 Pachy Serrano

    What do you think the world is thinking about the conservative movement in America?
    I travel often and you guys are really the laughing stock every where I go. They think conservatives are there only to cry and yell about Obama or talk about their idealogy of crisis. NO ideas, no plan, no respect, no fun, no substance. The only words you guys know is NO, NO, NO . . . NO Obama, NO Cooperation, NO way!! You guys are like spoiled kids when their parents take something away. My way or the hard way!
    You guys make me laugh con cojones!!

    No the spoiled kids are you liberals and you lie all the time you lied about living in Philadelphia you see if you put your Facebook page up make sure your lies match up with that before you lie and now you try to change the subject of people calling Obama god. you Liberals have no leg to stand on even a dictator can willing to make peace when all your god cared about is going to war. No one like you guys you are backing yourselves into a corner with your bull of pushing laws that morgorty in this country don’t want starting wars. Hell you god’s poll numbers are going down faster than the Titinc but you want me to believe your lying ass and not the facts good luck with that Obama worshiper and I hope you have fun worshiping your false idol. Maybe if you pray to Obama or his father Marx maybe he will get will change things for you because after all he did just legalized propaganda in this country after it was banned.

    Putin is more aggressive than Obama; the only time Obama is aggressive is when he is talking about re-distributing wealth or attacking Republicans.

  • Shane

     Bush was bad, but Obama is worse. At least Bush was a patriot and he did his best for our country. Obama hates America and conservatives.

    President Obama has formulated a plan so that every American citizen will eagerly enroll in Obamacare. Any Americans who refuse to join this medical-plan will be automatically arrested and sent off to forced labor camps in Siberia. By doing this all of the deadbeat Republicans will be eliminated ! In this modern society there is NO room for self supporting free-market capitalists ! Any citizen who is interred in a Siberian labor camp will learn two things VERY quickly ! #1. Work for the State or #2. Starve to death ! The best way to construct a perfect socialist, marxist society is to get rid of all of those deadbeat rejects from the Republican party ! No longer will the American public be forced to listen to conflicting philosophies ! From now on there will be only ONE philosophy to live by…Socialism ! Marxism ! Once the federal government takes over control of all television and radio broadcast stations it will do one thing. Chris Mathews and Ed Schultz will be given unlimited access to run their programs 24 hours a day. By using the sheer genius shown by both of these cutting-edge leaders in broadcasting the American Public will finally hear the TRUTH ! Think of that ! No longer will you be forced to watch O’Reilly or Lou Dobbs ! No more cartoons ! Or any of those stupid football games ! No more of those stupid John Wayne movies !

    One word says it all with respect to Obama, “incompetent”.  Obama is the ultimate example of where the racist affirmative action program can lead.  The guy is basically a mediocre black guy with a lackluster academic record, but like a lot of black guys, he has a line of crap and he’s learned to “speak the speak” from parroting the speaking style of others in the political game, never mind the fact that he was basically a dope-smoking smartass and a thug.  He got passed along from a lower-tier school to progressively better schools notwithstanding that his grades, character and fitness were all substandard.  No white without connections would have made it with the same record, yet he was ushered into the halls of out Ivy League institutions, then conned his way into a political career and through a combination of the affirmative action process of never making him actually earn anything and a series of fluke lucky events, he actually made it to the Whitehouse even though he is a complete buffoon and other than being able to read a teleprompter, he had nothing whatsoever to offer.  His arrogance comes not from being brilliant, but from being told throughout the years that he is brilliant despite the fact that he has never really achieved anything on his own or ever had to meet the same standard whites have had to meet.  Thank you liberals for affirmative action.  We now have the same reality that was depicted in the Peter Sellers movie “Being There,” where the moronic statements of a retarded gardener are mistaken for brilliant and the liberals are convinced that he is destined to be their next president.  Barack Obama meet Chauncey Gardener.

    “President Obama has formulated a plan”???????  Obama couldn’t find his ass with a radar.  That guy has never formulated anything on his own.  He is a stooge being controlled by George Soros and his other communist handlers.  Why do you think Putin has such contempt for him? . . . because Putin knows that he is just a spineless “useful idiot” and the real commies have always held the useful idiots in America in contempt, because they know what morons they are for selling out their own country.

    The Democrat party is trying to force socialised-medicine on American citizens. They are now finding out that the American voter wants NOTHING to do with it ! We will find out in the 2014 elections which way this screwball idea will go. I have been retired for several years now and am now on Medicare. This program has been bankrupt for many years. It is constantly in the red. Now we have a President who is forcing ANOTHER bankrupt entitlement-program on the American public ! The Treasury-Department is printing $86 billion dollars a month of Monopoly money. This bogus money is used to support the “bubble” quivering over Wall Street. When this “bubble” explodes and fragments apart into little pieces it is going to take a LONG time to re-build the American-economy. (I highly recommend the American citizen trade his counterfeit paper money for something that WILL keep it’s value ! Invest in gold or platinum or some other commodity.)

    J.P. Morgan has moved over $50 million dollars worth of mining equipment into Afghanistan. American and European mining companies have found an absolute “Mother lode” of gold in this country. This mining-contract was approved by Barack Obama and his State-Department. Mining-contracts for a mineral which is used to make lithium-polymer batteries has also been approved by our current White House leaders. A Canadian oil company has drilled and found massive oil-deposits under Afghanistan. China has won a massive copper-mining contract from the Afghanistan government in Kabul. (This country is going to become VERY wealthy in the next few years !)

    Obama a wuss.  obamacare a failure.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=507796978 Kevin Luck

    Im sorry I have to correct you a little bit. 
    Obama has no economic policy, besides spend spend spend.
    Obama has no foreign policy, besides sit and let the world figure itself out.

    He’s a complete moron. He has not idea how to balance a budget, he mocked everything Romney said during the debates, and yet Romney has been right on everything he said.
    Its incredible that people still find a way to think Obama actually cares about America.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=507796978 Kevin Luck

    The reason it is No No No, is because everything about Obama is a failure. The entire structure and reputation of America is going to have to be rebuilt after he finally leaves office. (Wait…after the leaves the golf course – he hasnt been in the office since he has been elected). He has no successful foreign, economic, or social policies that he can be credited for. 

    And your last line in your statement says conservatives make you laugh with balls? That’s odd.

    I travel in and out of The USA also. I agree w/you on this point with a caveat, of course. Keep in mind that people everywhere are heavily propagandized. Outside of America, people are usually much less conservative/Christian oriented than in America.,especially in the American Christian community.(Bible belt, Southern USA,) 
    If, the other countries’ newscast is instructing their populace to view the republican/tea party types/conservatives as a hinderance to barry/dems/liberal-progressive political agenda, then that’s exactly view the majority will hold. I saw a news cast in a Carribean country a few years ago. The back drop mural was a bust of Lenin, Castro, Chavez and Mao. I’m guessing they weren’t pro-American. just a hunch.  b/t/w, We want our legislatures, who represent us, saying no to the growth of government at the expense of the rights and individual empowerment of the American citizen. The gov. forcing us to do what we do not want to and tax us to support programs we dont agree with is simply anti-American in and of itself.

    yeah, I’ve something else. I think the recession of the mid to late 70′s was worse than what occurred in the Bush jr. years. Also, Bush jr. was dealing with the 911 attacks, the mulit-front terror wars you mentioned. etc. I dont love Bush jr. but the economy has actually worsened in the last 4-5 years after Bush left not improved. Lybia, Egypt,Syria are foreign policy disasters for this admin. Guns to Mexico to purposely damage our 2nd ammendment rights here. is a fumble and criminal. every admin has things happen we are not kosher with. I dont think Bush should have allowed the ghoulish left control the Terry Chaivo case. Letting a woman starve to death on nathional tv while her husband and atheists on the news tell us she is in a state of euphoria? but, these same people support abortion on demand too.

    “he stole an election” Look like someone is wearing a tin foil hat. “President with more vacations ever” Seeing how Obama broke the record make this not even truthful. “less secure border in 8 years” but open boarders under Obama is?” worse economic crisis since the Great Depression” but unemployment being stuck above 7% while millions are dropping out of the work force is a good thing? Which by the way was lower under Bush. ” Biggest tax cut for the upper rich” Obama taxing everyone to death including rich middle class and poor. “most hated President around the World” Again Obama took the title safe to say. I guess the facts speak for themselves Obama is the worse thing that happen to this country.
