I was watching these speeches, and while I can't say I totally disagree with the Venezuelan prez., I thought his words on Dubya, and the gesturing along with them, were pretty funny. Did anyone else catch any of it?

While I liked his theatrics, I thought the speech was pretty bad

here's the transcript:

speech

He DOES have a point about Latin America wanting the UN "fixed"; however, the countries that don't commit as many human rights abuses as Chavez have better ideas and better reputations behind those ideas. But sometimes I see Chavez as the ultimate backlash to US foreign policy in Central and South America. If they get a rotating seat on the secuirty council, it's going to be an interesting ride.

Latin America has good reason to see Bush as the devil (and, sometimes, America in general.)

I'll have to watch it tomorrow when i'm at home. (at work now...and probably should be working...lol)

Seeing Chavez genuflect and talk of smelling of sulfer in the air after Dubya was worthy of some air time on the Daily Show....I'll check TiVo later, I'll bet they mention it!

I just wanted to say that I'm venezuelan and that most people in my country cannot stand the president. I know everyone thinks that we voted for him but please remember that over there everything is very corrupt and the govt says what they want. Even if 100% of the people voted for someone else they will still say he won. Basically I just want people to know that he doesn't represent venezuelans. Honestly from all the venezuelans I know we are ashamed of how direspectful Chavez has been and we just want everyone to know venezuelans are not like that. I'm not into politics at all but I would hate for people to think that venezuelans are all like him.

Oh I totally know what you mean, Girlstar! Noriega and Torrijos (and just about eveery Panamanian "president") made the Panamanian people look like weak and crazy people. I would hate for people to think that "presidents" in many Latin/South American countries really demonstrate what the people are like. Politics down there is just not as "lawful" as it is here.

BTW, I wanted to send you my email so you could give me that brazilian (i think it was?) site that you were talking about but I accidentally erased the pm. I'm gonna PM you my info now

Yes, Sara, these presidents give us a bad image a lot of times. I don't know where Chavez stands internationally or if he has good ideas. All I know is about my country and the complete mess he's created since he took power. Aside from that, however, I agree that south america has the right to be upset at the US, but calling Bush an alcoholic (and Bush, according to what I read hasn't had a drop of alcohol since he turned 40) is unethical and direspectful (and I don't like Bush either).
Anyway, I swear I'm not into politics. I rarely read about it. I only look at the newspapers from Venezuela. (El Universal and Panorama).
Changing the subject, I send you the invitation Let me know if you don't get it bc when my brother in law sent me the invitation he had to send it like 3 times for me to get it. Hopefully you got it.

I felt I should add that around 50% of us Americans don't like or agree with our "elected" leader either.

P.S. Loved the video...lol!!
