Two clips, two different approaches to problem solving. Vladimir Putin was recently filmed putting a pesky oligarch in his place (in this instance for shutting factories and denying workers their salaries). His performance makes for great agitprop. The last line in particular is a charm.
Meanwhile, over in Washington, President Obama finds that he too is struggling to make sense in a world turned upside down. The cause of his headache? A pesky fly.
Two very different problems. But both resolved with a certain ruthlessness.
