Normally, I get somewhat offended when a foreign leader says something scathing about the U.S. President, regardless of who that is at the time. But I make special allowances for Hugo Chávez he reminds me of the pet frog I had when I was nine…
On the eve of his first official overseas trip since being diagnosed with cancer, Hugo Chávez has launched a blistering attack on Barack Obama, describing the US president as a "clown" and an "embarrassment."
"Focus on governing your country, which you've turned into a disaster," the Venezuelan president told state TV on Monday.
Looks like somebody's trying to take advantage of the power vacuum in national primary polls right now.
