Geopolitics: What do Hugo Chavez, Vladimir Putin, Gulf oil sheiks 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.
Presidential candidates always attract a few embarrassing endorsements, but the numbers of rogue dictators lining up to call for Obama's reelection is striking.
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.
It was "widely viewed as Putin's most direct endorsement of Obama," the Moscow Times reported.
Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez also weighed in: "I hope this doesn't harm Obama, but if I was from the United States, I'd vote for Obama," he said, since both were "fighting the extreme right."
Chavez also noted that Obama said: "Venezuela is no threat to the interests of the United States."

So I wonder who Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is supporting this time around?
Dictators know just like idelogical peddlars of solar and windmills know, fracking for gas and oil will help Americans take back America. And the environment will be much better off to boot. The dictators will lose their revenues and the enviromaniacs will lose their gubmint subsidies. Awwwww.... too bad.....
While I’m not too hot on Castro or Chavez, I do have a degree of respect for Putin.
He seems to be a person that wants his country to reach Western standards, but without the baggage that all Western countries have to deal with, now that the Baby Boomers are running things (i.e., exploding debt, mapping straight back to their HUGE selfishness of the 1960s/1970s).
Hopefully he will succeed. Yes, he’s jailed people that trash their churches - but is that a bad thing to do?
