President Barack Obama may be feeling low over his recent presidential debate performance in Denver, but his spirits soared upon hearing that Venezuela’s Marxist President, Hugo Chavez, was re-elected.
According to Politico, “White House press secretary Jay Carney congratulated the Venezuelan people on their recent election, despite exit polls showing the opposition to President Hugo Chavez winning.”
Carney told reporters traveling on Air force One that, “we have our differences with President Chavez. But we congratulate the Venezuelan people.”
As reported by Politico, “Carney added that the election process was ‘peaceful.’ Another Obama campaign surrogate, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, said that the U.S. had no indications that the results were fraudulent.”
On Sunday night, Chavez was declared the winner of the election over Henriques Capriles to win a third consecutive six-year term.
