Letter: A Republican idol
August 09, 2014, 05:00 AM Letter

Editor,

Not long ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin was hailed by Fox News pundits and several more or less prominent Republicans like former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, as a true leader, one who doesn’t hesitate, one who dares to make a decision and who executes without hesitation — in stark contrast to President Obama, who was criticized as someone who has to think about everything before he acts, weigh consequences, talk to others and evaluate options.

Putin has now demonstrated that he is a leader of Republican ilk — more like George W. Bush.
