Russian President Vladimir Putin & Kremlin Cheers Obama Victory …They Can’t Wait for His “Flexibility”


Following the election of Barack Obama Tuesday night for a second term, the Kremlin cheered Obama’s victory. Why you might ask? They were looking forward to his new “flexibility” after his last election of course as Obama told Russian President Dmitri Medvedev when Obama thought no one was listening.

MOSCOW – Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent a congratulatory note to President Obama after his re-election Tuesday, his spokesman said. The Kremlin says it will make the text public after the Americans have received it.   Putin is also expected to call Obama personally “in the near future.”   “In general, the Kremlin took the news about Barack Obama’s victory in the elections very positively,” spokesman Dmitri Peskov said, according to the Interfax news agency.   “We have the hope that positive initiatives in bilateral relations and in Russian-U.S. interaction on the international arena in the interests of international security and stability will be developed and improved,” he added.   It is perhaps not surprising that the Kremlin is pleased with the outcome of the election, especially since President Obama told then-President Dmitri Medvedev earlier this year that he would have more flexibility after the election to negotiate NATO plans to place components of a missile-defense shield in Eastern Europe.

      Hugo Chavez: I Support Obama
      October 1, 2012 | 9:06 a.m.

      President Obama secured an endorsement from Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez on Sunday, in a move that may garner groans from the White House and the Obama campaign.

      “I hope this doesn’t harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I’d vote for Obama,” Chavez said, according to Reuters.

      Chavez, who is facing his own reelection fight and has been used by Republicans to attack Obama in recent months, said that if Obama were from Venezuela he would vote for him, as well.

      “Obama is a good guy … I think that if Obama was from Barlovento or some Caracas neighborhood, he’d vote for Chavez,” he told Venezuelan television, according to Reuters.
