As the foreign policy debate came to a close all of the political pundits were vying to control the “spin” and attempting to determine who had won the all important and highly coveted swing voters. Most of that will really have to wait until Election Day but there have been a few interesting people who have voiced there opinion. Obama definitely has a few foreign policy fans, but they are probably not the kind he was looking for.
It a recent article in The Washington Times, Llana Freeman points out that yet another dictator is backing President Obama.
The latest [dictator] to publicly announce his support for the commander-in-chief’s reelection bid was Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, who this week assured he’d vote for Obama if he were from the United States. The America-bashing strongman made the announcement on state-owned television, saying “Obama is a good guy” and that if Obama was from Caracas, he’d surely return the favor by voting for Chavez.
This comes shortly after the government-official daughter of Cuban military dictator Raul Castro proclaimed her country’s support for Obama during a visit to the U.S. “I believe that Obama needs another opportunity and he needs greater support to move forward with his projects and with his ideas, which I believe come from the bottom of his heart,”.
Obama has also been endorsed by Vladimir Putin who has said the reelection of Obama could improve political relations between the two countries. There is not much doubt about that after Obama was caught on a hot mike telling Putin’s predecessor, “”This is my last election … After my election I have more flexibility,” Obama said referring to Americas missile defense systems, expressing confidence that he would win a second term.
It seems as though the leader of the free world would not want to be endorsed by some of the most anti-American leaders in modern time. These endorsements lead to some troubling thoughts. What has Obama told these leaders behind closed doors? The question begs to be asked, why do all of these anti-American, anti-democracy leaders want Obama to be re-elected so badly?
