Enough is enough ... Russian President and alleged Super Bowl ring snatcher Vladimir Putin needs to get that ring back on U.S. soil ASAP ... so says Senator John McCain.

Our photog caught up with Sen. McCain in Georgetown Sunday and broke down President Obama's chances of resolving the greatest threat to US-Russian relations since that thing in Cuba.

McCain -- a true American war hero (just sayin') -- says he's outraged and makes it clear ... the SB bling Putin took from New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft ... belongs back in the U.S. of A.

FYI --- Putin denies stealing the ring in 2005, his people say it was a gift. Riiiight.

So, can Prez O -- who's heading to Russia this week -- get it back? Check out JMC's take.

I know this may be hard for Harvey Levin and TMZ, but President Obama May have more Important things to Discuss with Putin than Robert Kraft Super bowl ring that he gave to Putin as a Gift.

John McCain is letting his ego run away with him.He has NO international political power.
He has little national power.

He is a used up old windbag and needs to sit down and shut up.

What does he care so much about a stupid super bowl ring for? Is he going to sell it for the money? He should just give it back, even if it was a gift. It is tacky to keep something that someone else gave you that they don't even mean you to have in good spirit. I don't know if it was a misunderstanding or what, but why would you want some trivial thing that someone else wants back?


I once gave back a TV someone gave me even though it made me really mad that they wanted it back. In the end i felt good for it, like it didn't matter anyway and I was the bigger person in the matter.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if McCain would just shut up. McCain wants a war with with Russia among the numerous other countries that John McCain wants us to go to war with. McCain is a crazy warmonger!

Having a member of my family serving in the army I just pray for our troops. If Putin feels more like a man wearing a ring that he didn't earn, let him. Just shows how pathetic he is. I live near the airport in a capital city. The anti chemical weapon vaccinations are made here. Last Wednesday from 5:30 am to 6:15 am several huge cargo planes took off escorted by fighter jets took off under the dark of night. We are going to war. The last time that happened was 9/11. Again, may God protect our troops. May God bless America.

John McCain NEVER misses an opportunity to shoot off his mouth, and it's gotten to the point, it appears questionable that he might have some mental disorder associated with age? As for the ring, if Putin has a US SB ring, it was not because it was a gift from the owner. That guy never did anything for anyone except himself. GIVE THE FRIGG'N RING BACK. It's just creepy.
