Vladimir Putin Loses Sight
Russians – Once for Putin, Want him Out.
Sometimes actually; more often than not great leaders tend to bite off way more than they themselves can actually chew.
They make promises they either had no intention of ever keeping or simply never took the time to see the bigger picture and are forced to renege on a promise that they made to supporters.
Today, no one knows that better than Vladimir Putin.
He has lost his view of his voters.
Here we are today with Vladimir Putin, who very well could have won the US presidential Election of 2016.
Polls showed that with zero doubt, if Putin had been able to run, American’s would have voted him into office by more numbers than anyone could keep up with over Hillary or Donald.
Russian President Vladimir Putin once, not too long ago, 2005 I believe vowed live on television, to Russians that he would never, ever raise their retirement age.
In all fairness that was back in 2005, and as of today, 10/3/2018, well, he has raised the age of retirement age for Russian workers and broke the promise that he made not so long ago to his people.
Perhaps it was an uneducated promise, or perhaps he was too busy doing photo shoots, meddling in the US presidential election, sleeping with China, Iran, North and South Korea, Syria…
While Putin’s approval rating in Russia is falling and this appears to be rather catastrophic for Vladimir, the worst is that it has hurt, and I mean deeply hurt Vladimir’s public image.
Something he cares more about than ratings, money, women, other countries.
His public image matters to him more than anything in this entire world.
While other news outlets are reporting that he has no plan to fix the situation, I am willing to venture a bet that he does, in fact, have a plan to fix things, at least up to a point where it will fix his beloved public image.
The one thing he cannot stand losing.
