Bloomber: If you were sitting with President Obama today, what would you tell him to do?
Bloomberg: Resign, over this issue?
Kasparov: No. Look what's happened, I believe every thug in the world is counting the remaining time -- 22 months in the office.
Bloomber: How does the president's resignation solve that?
Kasparov: OK, I have to apologize, I'm emotional, but he proved to be a weak leader. He is the top of the free world, the only man who Putin counts as a potential opponent. And looking at Obama's actions, in fact, inaction, Putin believes he can do whatever. Every negotiation he's in, Cuba, Iran, whatever, shows America is weak.
