    PORT OF SPAIN, April 17 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama and Venezuela's anti-U.S. leader President Hugo Chavez shook hands on Friday at the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad, the Venezuelan government said.
    Photographs released by Venezuela's presidential office showed Chavez, a fierce adversary of Washington policies, smiling and clasping hands with Obama at the start of the summit of Latin American and Caribbean leaders. (Reporting by Patrick Markey; Editing by Eric Walsh)

    Venezuela's Chavez calls Obama ignoramus | Reuters

    Venezuela's Chavez calls Obama "ignoramus" [Useful Idot]
    Sun Mar 22, 2009 3:24pm EDT


    1 of 1Full Size


    CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said on Sunday his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama was at best an "ignoramus" for saying the socialist leader exported terrorism and obstructed progress in Latin America.

    "He goes and accuses me of exporting terrorism: the least I can say is that he's a poor ignoramus; he should read and study a little to understand reality," said Chavez, who heads a group of left-wing Latin American leaders opposed to the U.S. influence in the region.

    Chavez said Obama's comments had made him change his mind about sending a new ambassador to Washington, after he withdrew the previous envoy in a dispute last year with the Bush administration in which he also expelled the U.S. ambassador to Venezuela.

    "When I saw Obama saying what he said, I put the decision back in the drawer; let's wait and see," Chavez said on his weekly television show, adding he had wanted to send a new ambassador to improve relations with the United States after the departure of George W. Bush as president.

    In a January interview with Spanish-language U.S. network Univision, Obama said Chavez had hindered progress in Latin America, accusing him of exporting terrorist activities and supporting Colombian guerrillas.

    "My, what ignorance; the real obstacle to development in Latin America has been the empire that you today preside over," said Chavez, who is a fierce critic of U.S. foreign policy.

    In the 20th century the United States supported several armed movements and coups in Latin America. Chavez says Washington had a hand in a short-lived putsch against him in 2002, which was initially welcomed by U.S. officials.

    Chavez and Obama will both attend the Summit of the Americas in Trinidad and Tobago next month. It is not known whether they will meet.

    Most of OPEC nation Venezuela's export income comes from oil it sells to the United States, but Chavez has built stronger ties with countries like China in an attempt to reduce dependence on his northern neighbor.

    Chavez expelled its U.S. ambassador in September in a dispute over U.S. activities in his ally Bolivia, which also expelled its U.S. ambassador. Ecuador's left-wing President Rafael Correa this year kicked out a mid-ranking U.S. diplomat.

    When I was in the Army, I made a side remark that they should concentrate on bombing LBJ in the White House and maybe we'd get this war over a lot faster.

    I got a visit from a lot of suits (USSS) and that was no fun. Even though I was being a smart ass, even back then they took that shit serious.

    Maybe he can give Chavez a job in his cabinet. He could have another member to his counsel of rivals , give another U.S. job to a south of the border resident and Chavez would probably pass venting for the post since he never has filed a federal income tax return.

    After my encounter I'm a little nervous about that stuff, obviously!

    I guess I was one of those "crazed vets" the government needed to fear. I made the remark at the O. club after one or two many drinks referring to LBJ's micromanaging the war. Apparently, somebody wanted to get some brownie points and turned me into someone. I couldn't believe anyone would take me so literal.

    What's that program they use. cannibal? Or something like that to monitor the Internet? Anything with Obama and the "A" word even implied makes me nervous.....

    But your idea has merit

    Is Obama afraid of the US military?

    B.O. is right to be afraid of US military--we need to purge this filthy turd-world demon from the District of Corruption (he is afraid) and that is why he is off cavorting with every turd-world dictator he can find.
    UGLY Democrats!

    Chavez doesn't qualify, UNLESS he hasn't paid his taxes.
