Vladimir…

A few years ago most Americans were embarrassed when President Bush inappropriately touched German Chancellor Angella Merkel at a public event. Watching the news last night it all came back when he referred to Russia’s leader Vladimir Putin as Vladimir (first name). With a smirk he said, “I call him Vladimir!”

That’s fine if Mr. Putin OKs it and it is done in private but a breach in protocol when carelessly mentioned in a public interview.

Keep him away from the Pope. Please.
