Medvedev says wants to see Obama re-elected
Breitbart ^ | 19 June 2011 | AFP

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said on Monday he wanted his US counterpart Barack Obama to win re-election next year, fearing that the two men's efforts to improve ties may lose steam under a new administration.

"I can tell you directly -- I would like Barack Obama to be re-elected president of the United States maybe more than someone else," Medvedev said in an interview with the Financial Times whose full transcript was released by the Kremlin early Monday.

But asked whether he thought the "reset" in relations would last for a long time, Medvedev waxed philosophical. "Nothing lasts too long under the moon."

Strange way to put it.

Good to know that Russian thugs support Obama for re-election. No doubt soon to be endorsed by Hugo Chavez, the Chinese communists, and North Koreans.

And don't forget UBL, only one of the many votes cast from the grave for Obama.

-"Medvedev says wants to see Obama re-elected"

Gee, I wonder why??

I don't recall the Russians/Soviets saying the same thing about Reagan.

why? Because Obama is playing checkers on the world stage, and the Russians are playing chess.

I thought it said Medved (Michael) at first glance, which didn’t even surprise me.

I can think of more heads of state who want Bambi to stay in the White Hut — Chavez, Castro, Karzai, Ghaddafi, King Abdullah and every other Muslim president.

Of course our enemies want this boob re-elected! Destroying the economy from within, making Congress more and more irrelevant, destruction of civil liberties and the Constitution, hatred for everything American....They couldn’t get a better deal with outright invasion.

Any wise foreign government official, whose country is in competition with the US, and doesn't have a weak point where Obama can stab him in the back, wants Obama reelected. It's like getting to fight a 4 year old girl for her daddy's estate.

When asked for his input on who the commander of America’s Third Army ought to be, German Fieldmarshall Rommel paused and reflected for a moment. “That Patton fellow you have is no good,” he said. “I don’t recommend him. There’s a fellow named Alan Fischbein who might be good for the job. Why not put him in charge instead?”

Obama isn’t playing checkers, he is playing with himself while the whole world watches him get off on himself

0bama wants to share with the Russians our anti-missile defense technology. That is treason, pure and simple. The ABM tech was developed at the cost of billions of taxpayer dollars to protect the American people from Russian nuclear attack.

Yet I haven't heard a single Republican legislator or Presidential candidate talk about this incredible national security risk.

Reagan wanted to do the same thing.

Further proof of Obama’s incompetence in foreign policy. A Russian agent pretending to be the US President could not have done any better than Obama has in sabotaging our allies and promoting our enemies.

...we could only hope....if I was in charge, I would revisit Gen Patton's plans for Russia....

....it is sooner or later.....in this case, it is later.....but inevitable, I fear.

You know, during WWII the allies decided against a plan for assassinating Hitler because they knew that all of his screw ups would result in an quicker allied victory. Just sayin’...

New campaign slogan for Obama’s re-election: “9 out of 10 enemy leaders can’t be wrong! Vote Obama in 2012!”

What a different world it would have turned out to be if Russia were defeated and chopped into a 100 pieces at the time.

I thought it was a mistake then; Reagan wasn't perfect. It's a much bigger mistake now because we actually have the technology, which we didn't in Reagan's day. Reagan may have been looking for a way to get the program passed, because the Commie-funded international "antiwar" movement and its domestic counterpart were fighting funding of "Star Wars."

0 wrote a thesis on disarmament w/respect to the Soviets, which has been sealed. I bet it deals with unilateral disarmament by the U.S. The latest START treaty does just that.
