    Maybe Obama will send a drone over to collect the ring.

    "It's a humorous, anecdotal story that Robert re-tells for laughs. He loves that his ring is at the Kremlin and, as he stated back in 2005, he continues to have great respect for Russia and the leadership of President Putin," the statement said. "In particular, he credits President Putin for modernizing the Russian economy. An added benefit from the attention this story gathered eight years ago was the creation of some Patriots fan clubs in Russia.

    Don't joke ... I just saw McCain on T.V. urging Obama to send troops into Russia to get the ring back, that failing to do so may embolden the Russians to take more rings ...
