Shayn Roby’s Take: Granted, Vladimir Putin is the former head of the KGB. He should not be trusted by Americans. However, the 800 pound elephant in the room that few are daring to touch is the fact that when Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are sparring with words, it’s hard to discern the truth, because COMMUNIST A lies just as much as COMMUNIST B.
