With both presidents facing tight re-election fights, Venezuela's Hugo Chavez gave a surprise endorsement to Barack Obama on Sunday - and said the U.S. leader no doubt felt the same.

"I hope this doesn't harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I'd vote for Obama," the socialist Chavez said of a man he first reached out to in 2009 but to whom he has since generally been insulting.

And this is why we all need to get out - and get our friends out - to vote for Romney.

I’d vote for Obama,” the socialist Chavez...

Should make a good TV ad in some areas.

I’d vote for you Barry, and you for me,
no matter how they toss the dice, it had to be,
the only one for you is me, and me for you,
so happy together...

Meanwhile the BBC today reported:

Two opposition politicians have been killed in Venezuela during a campaign rally, a week before the presidential election.

Antonio Valero belonged to the opposition party First Justice and Omar Fernandez was an independent.

The First Justice party said they were campaigning in Barinas state when gunmen shot them dead from a van.

Witnesses said it belonged to the state oil company PDVSA, but there was no confirmation of this.

A statement by the party said a rally had been planned in Barinas, President Hugo Chavez’s home state, but the road was blocked by government supporters.

When the two men left their car to try to gain access, they were fired on by gunmen inside a van, it said....

Ach-my-knee-is-odd

Hey thanks, I always struggled with the pronunciation!

And yes, I think a few adds featuring Hugo's endorsement will play well, probably even in areas we don't imagine.

Note that in the comments on the DUmp, they opine that the endorsement is a stick us evil rightwingers will use to beat TheEmptyChair.. Ummm.. You betcha!

Well, they didn't actually say TheEmptyChair, they used a synonym...

It's oh so touchy-feelie good. Wonder how soon EmptyChair will publicly thank Hugo for the endorsement and return the favor.

Dictators for Obama. It should tell voters something, but obots remain oblivious.

I’m sure ACORN is sending Hugo the voter registration paperwork.

I guess the DUmmies fail to see that Empty Chair and Chavez are like blood brothers.

So why wouldn’t we use it.

Only thing is that we really should use it.
