In other words, “there is not much ideological differences between us that would keep us apart.” An astounding tribute from the Venezuelan dictator to president O-bow-ma , and a rather large slap in the face for the American public. This is the same man who denigrated former US president G.W.Bush at the UN, with his infamous “I can still smell the sulphur” line, as he took the podium at the UN.
Apparently this is part of that “change” B.Hussein has promised US citizens, and he thinks that they’ll have no problem with his chumming it up with Chavez. The Tundra Tabloids is of course disgusted with his overtures that besmirch the office of the US presidency, as much as his bow to the Saudi dictator did. What a disgrace.
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (al-AP) – Presidents Barack Obama and Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s socialist leader, met Friday and shook hands on the sidelines of a summit of their hemisphere’s democracies. Obama walked across a hotel meeting room to meet Chavez for the first time, said a senior U.S. administration official who witnessed it and spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the details of the event. The official said Obama initiated the encounter.
Chavez has been a fierce critic of the United States during President George W. Bush’s tenure. “It was very, very short,” the official said of Friday’s meeting. “The president shook his hand, smiled and then went back to his position in the line.” The encounter comes as Obama softens U.S. policy against Cuba, a Chavez ally. Asked later about the meeting, Obama elicited laughter from reporters with a brief response: “I said, ‘Como estas?'”
It was more like “Hey Hugo, the sulphur has cleared, and the path to world socialism is now on track. Viva La revolucion!” KGS
