Why do certain people in democratic societies have a "bromance" for Vladimir Putin?


Former KGB officer,totalitarian, homophobe and all-around despot bent on creating a new Russian empire: everything about Putin screams anti-democracy (and don't forget the alleged political assassinations of critics and reporters as well as various invasions and intervention in proxy wars throughout Eastern Europe and the Middle East). Yet, strangely enough, some people in America on the right side of the political spectrum adore him. Why is someone who hates America and democracy getting so much "love" from people who claim to love this great country?

    I'm at a loss too. I read an article claiming that a lot of people like him because they see him as a "strong" leader even though he has run his country into economic turmoil.

    BTW, that's a real photo...and there's more like it. Also, he stole a Super Bowl ring from the New England Patriots owner. He's wacky and spooky at the same time.
