Bill Clinton: Vladimir Putin Is One Smart Russian

bill-clintonFormer President Bill Clinton says Russian President Vladimir Putin is “highly intelligent,” but has a skewed perception of Russian greatness.

“He is highly intelligent, deeply, deeply patriotic in terms of Russia, but he sees it more in terms of the greatness of the state and the country than what happens to ordinary Russians,” Clinton said Sunday during the Global Education & Skills Forum in Dubai.

In an interview during the forum with Fareed Zakaria, Clinton gave his take on Putin as a leader.

“I think he’s got a sort of fatalistic view of the misfortunes that befall ordinary people when larger things are at stake,” Clinton said. “I think the largest things that are at stake are the misfortunes that befall ordinary people.

However, Clinton, citing his own dealings with Putin, said the Russian president was never misleading.

  1. Clinton can speak for three hours and entertain an entire audience and say absolutely nothing. He is a phony. Can anyone understand what he said in this interview? “I think he’s got a sort of fatalistic view of the misfortunes that befall ordinary people when larger things are at stake,.” this is non sense talk. He is the entertainer of crowds and Chief of nothing.

  2. mr. clinton has a skewed self perception. this pompous idiot is bombastic and is reminiscent of george steinbrenner. he thinks we are all suckers and he is mostly right. a real loser who belongs on skid row.

  3. Pffffft. Mr. Clinton is just a pancake batter salesman who wants to keep his head above the common square of the town’s activity. This is a joke. Putin is no more patriotic for a better Russian Dream than the caviar has arms. This is a joke.
