My latest article, The Festivus Summit of the Americas is up at Real Clear World Blog. Please read it and leave a comment.
Here’s what is wrong with his lame-ass explanation/excuse. He is pretending that there are only two choices–hostility or the servility Obama demonstrated. I have lived and worked in Central and South America for more than 31 years. There is a way to be polite to Chavez without the glad handing and frat boy mugging that Obama engaged in. And you certainly do not start a dialogue about important policy differences by letting an arrogant prick like Chavez school you and humiliate you before the world.
