Ed posts, Chavez: Anyone but McCain, and links to the Reuters story: Chavez says U.S. relations could worsen with McCain
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a socialist
and fierce U.S. critic, warned on Tuesday that relations with Washington could worsen if Republican candidate John McCain wins this year’s presidential election.
Chavez said he hopes the United States and Venezuela can work better together when his ideological foe, U.S. President George W. Bush, leaves the White House next year, but he said McCain seemed “warlike.”
Well, if that’s not good news for McCain among the democracy-loving electorate, particularly those of “Hispanic” origin, I don’t know what is.
Matthew Vadum talked about Chavez in last Monday’s podcast, which you can listen to here. The podcast was plagued with technical problems but we discussed Citizens Energy Corporation, Joe Kennedy, Danny Glover, and the sandalistas going on reality tours of Venezuela. Joe, Danny and the others aren’t going to vote for McCain anyway.
