Chavez vs Obama: DUmmies Must Choose
Venezuela's Chavez calls Obama "ignoramus"
[Who to choose? Who to choose?]
(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.
[And now lets see which leftwing hero the DUmmies decide to support...]
Chavez is crazy...he had a chance to be civil towards the US once again and he blew it
[Accurate post DUmmie David_NSU but your mere 9 posts leads me to suspect that you are a LOUSY FREEPER TROLL!]
Doing you know what Obama did during his inauguration week, David_NSU? If you know what Chavez is reacting to, then you know that it was Obama who had a chance to be civil to Chavez and he blew it.

Question: Where is the biggest terrorist training camp within the United States?
[Just down the street from the newly closed Walmart Detention Center.]
Anyone who says Chavez exports terrorism *is* an ignoramus. I have not seen one act of terrorism come out of that country since Chavez was elected President.
[So you are also accusing our Beloved Barack of being an ignoramus.]
Chavez is a disgusting pig. the meeting in Trinidad next month should be interesting though.
[If you weren't defending Obama, that statement would have been grounds for your immediate tombstoning.]
If you read the posts, you can pick out those on this thread who probably have a lot more in common with Freepers than they do with DUers.
[LOUSY FREEPER TROLLS are everywhere! Hee! Hee!]
Chavez is a blunt man. I wouldn't descibe Obama as an ignoramus. But Chavez certainly has a right to. He is the one who was wronged, by Obama's interview on a rightwing corpo 'news' monopoly during his inauguration week, following some Bushwhack script about Chavez loving "terrorists" and being "bad for the progress of the region." Both things are wrong--untruthful, uninformed. So I would call Obama ignorant of South American events and trends, badly misinformed and very ill-served by someone, probably partly the Bushwhack holdovers in the State Dept., the foreign service and the CIA. Latin America has obviously been on Obama's "backburner," and that is understandable, considering what he has had to deal with his first two months in office (the Bushwhacks' Financial 9/11, and two wars). But Latin American policy has suffered, and somebody--or several parties--have been creating problems where there don't need to be problems. I would call that broadcast a major blunder. It was designed to provoke Chavez, and it did. Now Obama is stuck with that, unless he does something dramatic to reverse it. He has inflicted further injury on an elected president--not to mention a very popular president within Venezuela and throughout the region, including many Chavez friends and allies among South America's leaders--who was the target of Bushwhack assassination and coup plots. It must seem to Chavez that Obama agrees with that Rumsfeldian shit. And it is up to Obama to change that impression, unless he isinto that shit. Ignoramus, no. Ignorant, apparently. And making what may be grievous mistakes in Latin American foreign policy, basically pitting the U.S. against the vast majority of Latin Americans, once again.
[Lets just blame it all on the Bushwhacked Rumsfeldians.]
Chavez did not call Obama an ignoramus, but an ignorant poor man.
[Ah! That makes it all better.]
We are wasting a huge opportunity by not allying with Venezuela.
[I bet you love the sound of "Bolivaran States of America."]
and Chavez is one big "stupidamus"
[Posted the big bad "DUmmieanus."]
do you support Obama or Chavez?
[The DUmmie dilemma.]
I'm curious how the freepers are taking this...heads explode?
[Yes. Heads exploding with laughter.]
I wish Chavez were a Communist. He wouldn't have the opposition press that he has. And he would have tried and executed every single one of the coup plotters, and he would have put the Caracas elites and the stupid Catholic Church in their place! The fact he hasn't done any of those things, tells you that Chavez is just a socialist, like Bernie Sanders or many Europeans.

People, Obama STARTED WITH THE INSULTS during his inauguration week! Chavez didn't start it. He is REACTING to what Obama SAID. And Chavez doesn't take shit like that by sitting back and not responding. He has not survived a Bushwhack coup and assassination attempt, and several more attempts, and a Bushwhack instigated oil professionals' strike, and a Bushwhack-funded recall election, and non-stop demonization by the Bushwhack State Dept. and the corpo/fascist press, by being a weenie. He is not polite. Why should he be?
[You condemn the Bushwacks but what about the Rumsfeldians?]
Obama's LIES about Chavez were totally uncalled for. he demonstrated complete ignorance in his inauguration week comments, and that is regrettable because there is no reason at all that we should be hostile to Venezuela. Obama CLAIMS to have been a "community organizer," yet denigrates someone whose entire administration is devoted to the cause of The People of his country.
[So I guess we can mark you down as in the Chavez column?]
Regardless of Venezuela's policies, Chavez has the maturity level of a 16 year old. What a buffoon.
[And you we can mark down as in the Obama contingent of DUmmieland.]
