Quote:
US President Barack Obama said on Thursday that Vladimir Putin's bored, tough guy act was just a 'shtick' designed to boost his domestic political image.

"The truth of the matter is that when we are in meetings there are a lot of exchanges, there's a surprising amount of humour, and a lot of give and take," Obama said in the excerpts due to air later on Thursday.

Putin is obviously gay and hasn't come to terms with his sexuality.

Why don't Obama and Putin just have a no holds barred fight? First one to cry loses.

Putin would kick the ass of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named without breaking a sweat.

He really does need to come to terms with his gayness. Putin, I mean.

The other guy already has come to terms.

Don't you know Obama is an OG from the hood?

Of course it's a shtick, but it's a schtick that Obama cannot pull off, that why she's pissed.

I think if you ask Pussy Riot if it's a shtick, they will disagree.

Ask his victims. My guess is that it isn't a schtick.

You do realize that you're disagreeing with Obama, right?

Obama's "competence" is just 'shtick'.

It serves as a very good indication as to when a nappy needs changing

He's at terms with it. He's just evil-genius enough to bury it sufficiently to retain power in Russia.

He's actually kind of cute for an elderly russian. :oops:
