Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As I said, saying that Putin is no worse than Bush is not saying much - it just goes to show how we have all fallen.

Hell, we have supermenteur as president ourselves ("superliar" is one of Chirac's nicknames in France), a man who should be in jail and has done nothing of his more than 10 years in power except act as the Secretary of Agriculture he was in the 60s.

Blair, Berlusconi, Barroso, Bah!

What's wrong with all of us that we all get such terrible leaders? Do we really deserve them, collectively?

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes

Not sure what that has to do with my comment, but I agree.

And, well, uhm, some here have suggested you are our leader (a bit overzealous for me, but a charming idea.)  
Do you think we deserve you? ;)

Have a care now, or it'll be reeducation for you. Forty verses of "Hail Glorious Maximum Leader" three times a day.
