Here's a timeline of Trump's comments about Putin: Trump said Putin's doing a great job "Look at Putin -- what he's doing with Russia -- I mean, you know, what's going on over there. I mean this guy has done -- whether you like him or don't like him -- he's doing a great job in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia period," Trump told Larry King on CNN.
Here, Putin acts as a referee between them, making his role irreplaceable.
An autocratic style of leadership can be effective where decisions need to be made quickly. The sole responsibility rests with the leader, and he makes the decision without the need to consult others.
The Czar was "Autocrat of All the Russias". Real Russian men saw in autocracy and orthodoxy the pillars of the Empire. But eventually the respect for authority was destroyed by persistence in arbitrary rule.
License is the worst foe of liberty. Arbitrary power was the deadly enemy of authority. By Putin dictated the terms. Puting alone made decisions in Moscow to act, while Obama presided over committees in Washington that dithered for months to decide to do nothing.
He took the risks and reaped the rewards.
He sought to show that Moscow was a more reliable ally than ambivalent Obama's Washington. In conflicts around the world, Obama and Putin sparred for advantage. Putin had a big one: Obama played not to lose any more diplomatic or military ground to an aggressive adversary bent on reasserting a Soviet-style sphere of influence.
Roger Cohen wrote 12 October It is clear, not least to the Kremlin, that this president is skeptical of the efficacy of military force, wary of foreign interventions that may become long-term commitments, convinced the era of American-imposed solutions is over, and inclined to see the United States as less an indispensable power than an indispensable partner.
He has, in effect, been talking down American power. President Vladimir Putin has seized on this profound foreign policy shift in the White House. For Putin, the demise of the Soviet Union did not alter the old fundamental realities of international relations, where raw power matters, and where geography can sometimes be destiny.
Putin is a difficult character to study. An ex-KGB colonel, he is at times deliberately indistinct. Putin came to power intent on restoring the state, heir to a tradition in which the state itself represented both the highest aspiration of the society for survival in conditions of adversity.
Putin says young Russians are suffering from a moral vacuum left by the collapse of the Soviet Union in Putin's behavior is that of a strict and task oriented indiidual, obsessively driven by his own vision and ideology.
This behavioral preference influences his management and leadership style, negotiating style, strategic and crisis decision making. Putin won respect for doing what he said, for standing strong for what he believed.
He stands with his friends and when he takes a decision, he sticks with it whatever obstacles are strewn in his path. Those are admirable qualities in anyone, but essential in a successful leader. His team members very loyal to him because he is a strong leader and make them fill strong as well.
Brian Whitmore wrote August 11, "For most of Putin's long rule, he was essentially the front man for an oligarchic elite -- the so-called "collective Putin" -- that effectively ruled Russia. Like the Soviet general secretaries, Putin was first among equals, to be sure. He was the key figure and the decider.
But he had to find consensus and balance among the Kremlin's competing clans and among the dozen or so figures in his "politburo. And that is because in recent years, the Kremlin leader has moved away from a collective leadership model to one centered on the leader himself.
Putin's legitimacy objectively reduces the role of the bureaucracy, transforming it into a tool," Moscow-based political analyst Nikolai Petrov, head of the Center for Political-geographical research, wrote in Vedomosti 08 August According to Petrov, Putin is effectively abandoning an elite personnel policy resembling Leonid Brezhnev's "stability of cadres" approach and toward one reminiscent of Josef Stalin's -- minus, of course, the mass executions of ousted officials.
A "great leap backward has been made in the last couple of years, after which an elite system features has become much smaller, and more and personnel system can be rightfully called neo-nomenklaturnoy.
In Soviet times it was a collective leadership, in ours - a more personalized power vertical, closed on the person of the president Since the two switched places, the decision-making circle in Moscow has been pared downRussian President Vladimir Putin.
