Insane Right-Wing Website Poll: Would Putin Make a Better President Than Obama?

Conservative lie-rag The Daily Caller has released an URGENT NEWS POLL, folks! Since this is so urgently urgent, we thought it might be nice if you folks help them out a bit! The poll asks (are you ready for it?) “Who would make a better President? Obama or Putin?”

Given the right’s recent man-crush on Vlad, we know what the results will be…BUT, if we make sure all of our friends, neighbors, cows, chickens, and second cousins stop by to vote we may be able to irritate them with the response their poll receives.

While we all eagerly await the results of an imaginary Putin/Obama race in Conservativeland, Huffpo took a pro-active approach to the matter: they asked CPAC attendees! Here are just a few of the responses they received.

Ed Porter: “I feel so uncomfortable answering. My instinct on that is: I don’t know. I would think Putin would be just as lawless, but he would have actual leadership and gravitas. It pains me to say it. But I’d go with him.”

John Rhodes: “Neither one. I would stay home. Putin has a long-term strategy. There is nothing we can do over Crimea and even then it is not worth it … It would be the first election I didn’t vote in.”

Emily Hillstrom: “I think Obama will still make a better president. Putin discriminates against people. He puts them in jail. I just don’t think he is a good leader. He also invaded Ukraine.”

Sarah Kelley: “I don’t know. Putin is a lot more forward with the way he does things.”

Conor (declined to give his last name): “Putin.”
Huffington Post: “But he puts people in jail.”
Conor: “So does Obama.”
Huffington Post: “But he just invaded a neighboring country.”
Conor: “So would Obama.”
Huffington Post: “But then why Putin, if they’re both bad?”
Conor: “Because, hope and change.”

Brent (asked for his last name not to be used): “Putin. He has done a stronger job of playing international politics.”

The Huffington Post asked Brent about Putin’s domestic record. In response, he said that on 2nd Amendment rights, the IRS screening of Tea Party groups, and domestic surveillance, Obama was pursuing policies that are “hallmarks of everyday circumstances in Russia.”

“As absurd as the poll is, there is greater respectability for someone who can effect change,” he added.

Mark Roepke: “It’s tough. Putin is an effective leader. He is getting things done. It depends where I live … I probably don’t want a Soviet running this country, but I already got a socialist.”

    Oh Putin for sure. It’s much better to have a homophobic, crazy madman in charge than a smart saner one at the helm of a nuclear armed country. But seeing how the right salivated over bush and his fake masochism, and their delirious desire for war, I can see how someone like Putin would attract them.
    Hate gays- Putin
    Like to invade countries on false pretenses- Putin
    Oppress minorities- Putin
    Hate free media- Putin
    Putin is obviously their man.

    It’s too bad Putin isn’t an American citizen, he’d make a perfect republican candidate. Reactionary, repugnant, repressive, ridiculous, re…publican!

    Right-wing talking point before the Ukraine situation:

    “Obama is a Kenyan socialist lawless dictator who oversteps his constitutional powers with executive orders.”

    Right-wing talking points after the Ukraine situation:

    “Putin is a decisive leader who knows what to do and does it.”

    “Obama is feckless and weak.”

    Well, you can’t have it both ways, guys. Is President Obama a lawless dictator ruling with an iron fist or is he weak and indecisive? Oh, and by the way, don’t let the weak, feckless president take your guns and force you to get a divorce and go into a same-sex marriage with an animal.

    I guess Obama’s doing it all wrong! He should have taken out all the top Republicans, paid millions of out tax dollars, to the best PR companies in the world, to convince the world he’s the greatest!
    America, where stupid is the new smart!

    LOL and heckuva job, Fox, making a whole lot of dummies. This would alarm me if I wasn’t already stunned beyond belief at how warped in their thinking so many of the people on the Right have become.
