A fool speaks

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called US President George Bush "the devil" in a speech to the United Nations, making the sign of the cross in a dramatic gesture and accusing him of "talking as if he owned the world."

"Yesterday, the devil came here," Chavez said, referring to Bush's address before the UN General Assembly on Tuesday. "Right here. Right here. And it smells of sulphur still today, this table that I am now standing in front of."

Lest anyone wasn't listening, Chavez continued:
"Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, from this rostrum, the president of the United States, the gentleman to whom I refer as the devil, came here, talking as if he owned the world. Truly. As the owner of the world," Chavez said.

At the start of his talk, Chavez held up a book by American writer Noam Chomsky, "Hegemony or Survival: America's Quest for Global Dominance," and recommended it to everyone in the General Assembly, as well as to the American people. "The people of the United States should read this... instead of the watching Superman movies," Chavez later told reporters.

He called U.S. consumerism "madness," saying Americans have wasteful habits in using oil and energy. He held up a satellite photo showing the world at night, with bright light emanating from the U.S. and other wealthy countries.

I agree with Chavez on this point, Americans should cut their ‘wasteful’ habits, cut the spending on gas and switch off the lights, so all the world may remain in darkness, and just so this half-wit gets a little less of your dollar.

The United States continues to be the top buyer of Venezuelan oil, bringing the South American country billions of dollars in earnings that help fund Chavez's popular social programs.

How he continues to do business with this ‘devil’ beggars belief. I guess the hypocrisy is lost on such a half-wit and his supporters.
