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.

Even gets comments at the DUmp...
And this is why we all need to get out - and get our friends out - to vote for Romney.

Debate: Obama’s to lose, Is Romney ready for prime time?
I’d vote for Obama,” the socialist Chavez...

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.

They probably already have voted for one another...many times.
True. So what?
Dictators for Obama. It should tell voters something, but obots remain oblivious.
Forget Chavez...who is Charlie Manson supporting?
Chavez and Manson both got free Bananabama Phones.
Is that Valerie Jarrett? Ref. another thread yesterday: Klingon ears.
