China very pleased Obama re-elected because they know they can “push him around”. Snork.

Interesting little interview by Justin Webb and John Simpson about some of the international reactions to Obama’s re-election. Especially at 1:38, where Simpson reveals the Chinese are happy he’s still there because they can “push him around”. That’s probably the same feeling Putin has.

Simpson also seems to think Obama’s been strong with Iran, who he says have been “backing down” recently. Can’t say I’ve noticed it myself, especially now it’s been revealed they were taking potshots at an American drone just a few days before the election (see earlier post). And the fact that news has been coming out that the Obama crowd have been having secret talks with the mentalists in Tehran.
