    How Hugo Chavez Became the Right's Most-Hated Enemy, In Pictures



    With the death of Hugo Chavez, George W. Bush loses perhaps his most effective needler. There's not really much more Chavez could have done to visibly distance himself from the values of the United States, and, more specifically, the American right — House Republicans were not shy in joining the chorus of reaction on Tuesday. Ostensibly in service of diplomacy, Chavez showed no fear in posing for photos with a rogue's gallery of world leaders.

    One thing is for sure.....I doubt a former bus driver will ever be the president of the US. This guy is not even close to what Chavez was. But that wont change his stance about us tho.[/QUOTE]

    Not sure if this is arrogance or ignorance, or both.

    Comparing the last surviving superpower to a third world country is bogus.

    When we wasn't a nuclear armed, out gunning the next 14 countries COMBINED superpower we had a few humble beginning Presidents. The son of a frontierman, no real formal education, outside of politics no real achievements... held THIS Nation together when father fought son and brothers died on the same battle field but in different uniforms.

    While some elitists may decry a simple working man leading our nation, it does seem to be a cry heard in hear constantly...."If I was in charge.....!"

    I read a post about economic ignorance as well.... seems I recall some voo-doo economics called 'trickle-down'.... that wasn't from south of the Rio....

    So. How did Cheney arrange to give Chavez cancer? And, which giant oil company will be the first to get at Venezuela's oil?

    You wanted someone like Alinsky to stir the crowd? He had died decades earlier. You have to realize Obama still had a character to play back then so trotting out another Alinsky acolyte would not have been wise.
