    Putin has solidified his control over Russia while Obama’s lame duck period has seemingly set in earlier than usual for a two-term president — latest example: the government shutdown mess. Anyone watching this year’s chess match over Syria and NSA leaks has a clear idea of the shifting individual power dynamics.


    The Most Powerful People in the World list is an annual snapshot of the heads of state, CEOs and financiers, philanthropists and NGO chiefs, billionaires, and entrepreneurs who truly rule the world. It represents the collective wisdom of top FORBES editors, who consider hundreds of nominees before ranking the planet’s top 72 power-brokers – one for every 100 million people on Earth — based on their scope of influence and their financial resources relative to their peers. (See full methodology here).



    This year’s list features 17 heads of state who run nations with a combined GDP of some $48 trillion — including the three most powerful people, Putin, Obama and Xi Jinping, the general secretary of the Communist Party of China. The 27 CEOs and chairs control over $3 trillion in annual revenues, and 12 are entrepreneurs, including new billionaires on the list, Nigeria’s Aliko Dangote (No. 64), founder of Dangote Group, and Oracle’s Larry Ellison (No. 58). Speaking of, this year’s class has 28 billionaires valued in excess of $564 billion.

    If Barry doesn't quit listening to Putin's private phone calls, there's going to be trouble.

    it sure in hell isnt Obama- he by his own admission never knows what the hell is going on.

    Reporter:
    Let me read you the President's own words:
    “No matter how we reform health care, we will keep this promise to the American people: If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period. If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period. No one will take it away. No matter what."
    "
    Why has Obama been telling the American people this for at least 3 years when it is not true?"

    Carney: "The President didn't know people could not keep their current health coverage"
    Reporter "How is that possible?? It's his Health Care plan! It says right in the plan that 66% of Americans would lose their current coverage. Has he been lying to the American people?"
    Carney: "Listen, get off my ass, he's fucking incompetent- I just lie for him, ok?"
