Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin carry themselves and lead in two very different ways as the series of pictures below will clearly show!
Now don't get me wrong because I'm certainly not looking to have a power grabbing megalomaniac like Putin in control who pulls stunts like dissolving the state-run media in favor of a state-run propaganda machine as he did today.
'President Vladimir Putin tightened his control over Russia's media on Monday by dissolving the main state news agency and replacing it with an organization that is to promote Moscow's image abroad.
The move to abolish RIA Novosti and create a news agency to be known as Rossiya Segodnya is the second in two weeks strengthening Putin's hold on the media as he tries to reassert his authority after protests against his rule...' (Source)
A leader who can jam policies and laws down the throats of a populace who don't support or want them.
But wait...Barack Obama in many ways does lead like Putin except in the most important ways which is when it comes to national security and defense.
Given that I would prefer to have a tough leader who is feared and respected around the world in charge which are two things that Barack Obama obviously is not!
But, at the end of the day, neither one is a great choice if you are merely one of the rank and file citizens.
