"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...Earlier in the year the government-official daughter of Cuban military dictator Raul Castro proclaimed her country’s support for Obama during a visit to the U.S... That brings us to Russia’s Vladimir Putin, who has eliminated most elections in his country, monopolized all major media and destroyed the political party system."

"What do Hugo Chavez, Vladimir Putin, Gulf oil sheiks, (Matt Damon) and President Obama have in common? They all want to halt the U.S. energy revolution in fracking. No wonder so many of them are endorsing Obama. Obama 'is an honest man who really wants to change much for the better,' cooed Russia's President Vladimir Putin to RT state television after hurling verbal thunderbolts at Mitt Romney."

"NewsBusters reported in April that Matt Damon is creating an anti-fracking film called "Promised Land." On Friday, the Heritage Foundation's Lachlan Markay revealed that some of the financing for this movie came from the OPEC nation the United Arab Emirates. As an OPEC nation with huge oil reserves, it is in UAE's best interest to do whatever it can to reduce the oil supply of its competitors ESPECIALLY America which just so happens to also be the world's largest energy consumer.

Forward comrads. Fracking is being done safely. Treehuggers are job killers. An energy independent USA will: reduce gasoline, heating oil and electricity prices, stop sending money to our terrorist enemies and create millions of jobs. Obama, what don't you understand?

But, and I admit I didn't see this coming, it seems to be tied to domestic production of energy by us. They like Obama because he won't do it.

Putin's got skin in the game, waiting for Obama to keep the promise of his cooperation over the desires of the American citizens.

Putin, Chavez, Castro, Obama. What is that saying about "Birds of a feather?" Three anti-Americans endorse Obama. Is that a surprise to anyone?
