The United Nations and its affiliates have been weighing in on U.S. elections with increasing frequency lately– and it’s understandable, considering a wildly disproportionate amount of its funding comes from the United States. In the most recent event, the U.N. special rapporteur on counter-terrorism and human rights raised what he considers to be the “alarming” implications of a Republican victory.
Ben Emmerson lamented Mitt Romney’s position on waterboarding: “There is no doubt that the Romney administration would be able to claim…a democratic mandate for torture…That would put Romney as the first world leader in history to be able to claim [that].”
While he also objected to the secrecy surrounding President Obama’s drastically expanded use of drones, he apparently considers them a preferable alternative.
Emmerson says he plans to voice his concerns about a Republican victory at an upcoming U.N. meeting, but is not being quiet in the meantime..........
U.N. Official Warns: Electing Mitt Romney Means ‘Democratic Mandate for Torture’

More good news for Romney. His opponent has been endorsed by Chavez, Putin, Castro, the United Nations, and Honey Boo Boo. We've just got to elect Romney, quick! He's perfect.
And they are aware that the nation's leaders will see what you've seen and decide that the endorsers really wanted Romney, so they'll tell everyone to vote for Obama which was really their plan all along.
and are equally aware how their endorsement will play out to the american people.
just like if they endorsed romney, it'll sway favourable opinion to obama.
