Source: Obama again gets the last laugh against Putin

Example:

That is, until a few months ago, when the Russian president deployed forces to Syria, rekindling the American right’s love. Republican White House hopefuls once again praised Putin’s bold “leadership,” as did like-minded pundits. The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin argued, “In taking this action just days after meeting with President Obama, Putin is delivering one more finger in the eye of a president whom he continues to out-wit and out-muscle.”

I don't understand what they're talking about.

By his actions in Syria Putin revived the feeling of affection towards him among the right-wing politicians of the USA.

"American right" means American parties, movements and politicians on the right side of the political spectrum.

    Aha, that's what they're talking about--right wingers. – Michael Rybkin Dec 13 '15 at 12:40
  • Да. Он "вернул себе любовь Американских правых политиков". (Yes. He brought back the love of US-based right politicians). – CowperKettle Dec 13 '15 at 12:41

To put it in simple words: bringing back the love that was off.

The word rekindle is often used with fire, that is, to set it again, which adapted to the context, it's to put back their love.
