CHAVEZ CALLS ON OBAMA TO FOLLOW PATH OF SOCIALISM
Caracas – Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez on Friday called upon US President Barack Obama to follow the path to socialism, which he termed as the “only” way out of the global recession. “Come with us, align yourself, come with us on the road to socialism. This is the only path. Imagine a socialist revolution in the United States,” Chavez told a group of workers in the southern Venezuelan state of Bolivar.
Here’s the original in Spanish:
In addition to inviting Obama to follow the path of socialism, Chavez insulted our country yet again,
“The American empire is coming to an end. It’s not about the end of the United States, or its institutions, or its people. That murderous, genocidal empire has to end and someday a leader will come that will better interpret that people and lead it to a superior destiny, and not give it the sad destiny of a murderous power, an aggressor hated by the whole world.”

Video in Spanish, from a February 28, 2009 cadena, where Chavez says, among other things, “Obama, take care of yours [the American people] and I’ll take care of mine…To Mr. Obama..,show a little intelligence… Here the DEA supported the drug traffic.” Carries on about torture in Iraq, Americans killing Iraqi children, Israel committing genocide, and concludes with,
Go wash your *ss, Mr. Obama. Go wash that *ss.
