Comparing two leaders


The Norman Transcript

NORMAN — Editor, The Transcript:

A grand alliance could be forged between Mary Fallin and Vladamir Putin, but it is a parallel in like-mindedness that few bother thinking about.

Grab the Crimea Steal Oklahoma’s tribal resources. Sweep secret surveillance during the Winter Olympics under the bridge Shroud in secrecy canceled contracts after Olympic-sized coverage of Fallin’s photo-op to heroically and quickly repair the Lexington-Purcell bridge. Oops!

These two seem to say, “Hurray for the death penalty and overcrowded prisons,” “Let us repress religious freedom for all,” “Deny basic human rights,” “Control women’s bodies” and “Harass homosexuals.”

Fallin clouds information on Oklahoma’s health care. Putin? Both utilize, to the maximum, citizen-funded palaces and family trips and vacations unrelated to the affairs of state.

Each has the hubris to access taxpayer money in undisclosed amounts for purposes personal and known only to them. Fallin appears to mirror Putin’s self-serving high-handedness.
