“Russian President Vladimir Putin Overjoyed With Obama’s Reelection, ‘We Took The News Very Positively'”

Reagan never really won the Cold War, sad to say.  Bill Ayers, Barack Obama, Alinsky, Gramsci, and Cloward-Piven did.  With an assist, I suppose, from Frank Marshall Davis.

ABC News, via Weasel Zippers:

Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent a congratulatory note to President Obama after his re-election Tuesday, his spokesman said. The Kremlin says it will make the text public after the Americans have received it.

Putin is also expected to call Obama personally “in the near future.”

“In general, the Kremlin took the news about Barack Obama’s victory in the elections very positively,” spokesman Dmitri Peskov said, according to the Interfax news agency.

“We have the hope that positive initiatives in bilateral relations and in Russian-U.S. interaction on the international arena in the interests of international security and stability will be developed and improved,” he added.

It is perhaps not surprising that the Kremlin is pleased with the outcome of the election, especially since President Obama told then-President Dmitri Medvedev earlier this year that he would have more flexibility after the election to negotiate NATO plans to place components of a missile-defense shield in Eastern Europe.

Russia has expressed concerns that the system is aimed at them, although the United States and NATO insist it is designed to counter an Iranian attack.

Don’t you worry about that, Vlad.  Flexibility.  We’re all in now.

— he said, bemusedly.

  1. It’s like you think the Russians are bad or something. Don’t you remember that they gave up communism?

    Stupid wingnut.

  2. Reagan won the Cold War. But that didn’t stop the socialists from losing the peace.

  3. Khrushchev was right.

  4. If Putin is gleeful, what must PM Netanyahu be thinking today? And what the Guardians of the Faith in Iran?

  5. The Soviets played the long game on many different fronts. They obviously lost the economic and military battles, but their psyop and infiltration/corruption of American society saved the day and they won the larger war in the end…

    …being an old KGB guy, Putin understands well what Obama’s reelection means.

  6. The cold, dead hand of the USSR is reaching up from its grave, and strangling us…

  7. “Celtic Dragon says November 7, 2012 at 2:52 pm
    The cold, dead hand of the USSR is reaching up from its grave, and strangling us…”

    The new Russia has more of a voracious mobster empire feeling.

  8. Well, hell. If a former big cheese of the KGB thinks you’re A-Ok, then you MUST be A-Ok.
