Erdogan reminds me of Obama

Reader comment on item: Erdoğan Has a Tough Job

Submitted by Sheri (United States), Aug 14, 2014 at 10:10

Quote: Pipes: It is a win for Erdoğan, not a loss for the others, who realistically could not have expected to be elected president. But it is an ugly win because Erdoğan used the tactics of what we in American English call a "tin-pot dictator."

I am referring to his absurd three goals in a soccer match, the jailing of journalists and police, the biased TRT coverage, the ethnic insults, the treatment of many citizens as enemies, and much more. This was not remotely a fair election.

NOTE: Reminds me of OBAMA.
