Russian President Vladimir Putin is jealous of Barack Obama. At a news conference in Russia Thursday, Putin said, "How do I feel about Obama after Snowden's revelations? I envy him, because he can get away with it." USA today reports that Putin also defended espionage calling it "one of the oldest professions in the world, just like some other well-known professions - we won't mention them here." The Russian President was likely referring to prostitution.
