After careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that Venezuela’s strongman, Hugo Chavez, is a complete and utter fraud, a con man, and in a phrase I’ve grown of, “is full of crap.”
Let’s think about this for a minute.
If even HALF of what Chavez said about President Bush at the UN this past week was true, he’d be dead by now.
If Chavez himself believed even half of his BS about Bush, he would never have dared go on a speaking tour around the United States this past week.
This guy’s a two-bit punk who’s figured out how to score points with the more ignorant of his own people, along with a lot of the idiotic left around the world and even in this country. Reacting to him in any way simply “validates” his stance in their eyes.
I say we simply ignore the putz for now. Either he’ll eventually leave office, find a new boogeyman to scare his people with, or simply push matters too far when we’ll have to actually take notice of him.
Until them, let him sputter and fume to his heart’s content. At least he’s giving us something to laugh about, and he even got Charles Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to notice reality a little. (I don’t expect it to last, but it’s a nice thing to see anyway.)
