Hugo Chávez: "New US president should listen to the world"

Venezuela's President Hugo Chávez said that the next US president must "talk and listen" to the world. He also said that the new leader of the United States would be accountable for the implementation of neoliberal policies and their impact on the global financial crisis.
[Yup! An Obama endorsement.]
"The next president of the United States must sit down and talk to the world. He has to do it." "Not with Chávez, I am not important," said the Venezuelan leader on Saturday night during a meeting with regional media in the eastern state of Sucre, DPA reported.
[Definitely meaning Obama.]
Chávez made these remarks when he was asked about the recent statements made by Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama on a possible dialogue with the Venezuelan president if Obama wins the elections next November 4.
[The word is missing but this is definitely an endorsement. Now on to the nervous DUmmies...]
There is only one chance of that happening. Hugo and Barack, the bonding.
[Of course, my perceptive little DUmmie. Hugo and Barack will bond if Obama wins.]
I wish he'd shut up about the U.S. and this election. We're gaining a lot of "middle ground," moderate voters. Let's keep it that way, and not introduce Chavez into the mix.
[Please don't let the public know that Hugo Chavez endorses Obama. We still have a lot of gullible "moderate voters" that we have to sucker.]
I stand by my statement. He's not helping Obama anymore than an endorsement by the Castros would. I want to win this election.
[Translation: Please shut up "por ahora," Hugo, so we can fool enough people.]
Did you not realize he was answering a direct question when he said that? Maybe he should have called you to seek your advice. He did NOT endorse Barack Obama, or can't you grasp this detail?
[He did not formally "endorse" Obama but he did endorse him without actually saying "endorse." Wink! Wink!]
Chavez should STFU. At least until after the election ... THEN he can run his gob all he wants.
[There it is folks. The DUmmies want Chavez to just shut up about endorsing Obama until he can express his Barack love after the election.]
No, he should NOT STFU. He's telling the truth, why should he?
[I agree. Hugo Chavez should be allowed to loudly express his support for Obama.]
I believe in Free Speech ... I'm not passing laws against him saying something. I'm saying I wish he'd shut up until after the election.
[Please do not let the public know that Obama is endorsed by a Bolivaran Marxist.]
It doesn't endorse anyone whatsoever.
[He doesn't use the word "endorse," but Hugo definitely does endorse you-know-who and it ain't McCain.]
So I really see no reason why Chavez should shut up. I certainly wouldn't.
[Speak up, Chavez! Let us all know about your endorsement of Obama.]
Chavez is a passionate man, a warrior who feels things strongly, intensely and who is gifted with empathy for shared suffering... whereas US armchair cowboys, who are playing Masters of the Universe games with real countries in the real world, are cowardly sociopathic bureaucrats. But Obama will change all that. Just watch. The tide has turned. We get to salvage what's left of the wreck.
[Obama will change all that. He will change us into a Bolivaran Republic.]
He is not a nut. He is not a clown. He is not a tyrant. He is well-supported, trusted and admired and he is VERY democratic.
[Chavez is not a nut? Isn't this the same clown who ordered all Venezuelan clocks set forward by a half hour?]
