Keep in mind Obama was horrified when Romney suggested Russia wasn’t an ally of ours.
Via The Hill:
The Russian government is lambasting the U.S. presidential race as an undemocratic spectacle amid growing concerns about the country’s own commitment to free and fair elections.
The Foreign Ministry this week accused America of hypocrisy following reports that some U.S. states would turn away international election monitors at the polls.
The Kremlin-funded Russia Today television station, meanwhile, is serving up a steady stream of outraged U.S. election coverage, reporting on topics such as the lack of polling places in Indian country and the short-shift given to third-party candidates by the American media.
The U.S. electoral system, Russian elections chief Vladimir Churov declared this week, “is the worst in the world.”
Observers say the attacks against America’s election system are largely fueled by domestic politics in Russia.
Voting has become a touchy subject for the Kremlin following the massive demonstrations that pro-democracy activists staged against the legislative elections that were held in December. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the turmoil raised “serious concern.”
Further, observers from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) said President Vladimir Putin’s election to a third six-year term in March was marred by “serious problems.”
