Venezuela’s Chavez: ‘Obama More Left Wing’

And yet again I am reminded of all the Dems who stamp their feet and go into temper tantrums whenever someone refers to Barack Obama as a socialist. Then, those same Dems will insult our intelligence and say that Obama is not. Well, the Western Hemisphere’s most notable socialist disagrees.

From Reuters:

Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday that he and Cuban ally Fidel Castro risk being more conservative than U.S. President Barack Obama as Washington prepares to take control of General Motors Corp.

During one of Chavez’s customary lectures on the “curse” of capitalism and the bonanzas of socialism, the Venezuelan leader made reference to GM’s bankruptcy filing, which is expected to give the U.S. government a 60 percent stake in the 100-year-old former symbol of American might.

“Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama! Fidel, careful or we are going to end up to his right.”

And let’s not forget:

Chavez, a vehement critic of the U.S. “empire,” has toned down his rhetoric since Obama took office in January and the two men shook hands during a summit in Trinidad and Tobago in April.
