Russia's Medvedev Says Wants To See Obama Re-elected

Medvedev says wants to see Obama re-elected


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.

“If another person becomes US president then he may have another course,” he said.

“We understand that there are representatives of a rather conservative wing there who are trying to achieve their political goals at the expense of inflaming passions in relation to Russia, among other things.

“But what use is criticising them? This is simply a way of achieving political goals.”

Of course he would, the longer Obama’s president the weaker the United States will be!!

Of course he wants Obama reelected. With a weak inept president in the White House, he can easily push this nation around and get what they want from us.

"Medvedev says wants to see Obama re-elected"---Surprise !
I bet Castro, Chavez and Acmedinajad (sp) and Kim Jung Il also want to see Obama re-elected. In 1980 the leaders of the former U.S.S.R. endorsed Carter...
