President Obama received a ringing endorsement from Hugo Chavez today.

Hugo Chavez, of course, also slammed Mitt Romney and his “extreme agenda.” This is not surprising. Back in 2009, the Venezuelan dictator slammed “stupid” Fox News and praised President Obama, saying “the smell of sulphur has been replaced by the smell of hope.”

Sigh. Excuse us while we grab our hurl buckets.

Twitter users aren’t really surprised by this turn of events, either.

However, some think it may make a great campaign ad … for Romney.

Heh. Take it under advisement Team Romney. There is something to this Japanese proverb: “When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.”

Nice guy? Or, as strongman Chavez says, “good guy?” We think not.
