Hugo Chavez apparently decided his offer of money wasn't taken seriously enough so he kicked W while he was down. Meanwhile, Pat Robertson was seen looking up 'hit squads' in the Yellow Pages.

'Cowboy' Bush failed in Katrina evacuation-Chavez
01 Sep 2005 00:42:52 GMT

Source: Reuters

CARACAS, Venezuela, Aug 31 (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, a vocal critic of the U.S. government, on Wednesday called U.S. President George W. Bush a "cowboy" who had failed to manage the Hurricane Katrina disaster and evacuate victims.

"That government had no evacuation plan, it is incredible, the first power in the world that is so involved in Iraq ... and left its own population adrift," Chavez said in a cabinet meeting broadcast live on television.

His remarks came as U.S. authorities evacuated thousands of people from New Orleans and after Bush said it would take years to recover from flooding caused by Hurricane Katrina.

The death toll on Wednesday reached at least 200 in what Bush called the nation's worst natural disaster.

"That man, the king of vacations ... the king of vacations in his ranch said nothing but, you have to flee, and didn't say how ... that cowboy, the cowboy mentality," said Chavez, chuckling in a reference to Bush without naming him directly.

Chavez, an outspoken populist who calls Cuba's Fidel Castro an ally, often lambastes what he calls Washington's failed imperialist policies. He says the Bush administration is trying to assassinate him and calls the U.S. president "Mr. Danger."

The two governments frequently clash though the United States is the top oil client of Venezuela, the world's No. 5 crude exporter. Washington portrays Chavez as a menace who uses his nation's oil wealth to fund anti-democratic groups.

The Venezuelan president, applauded by supporters for his self-proclaimed socialist revolution to fight poverty, has offered to send cheap fuel, humanitarian aid and relief workers to the disaster area.

Venezuelan state oil firm PDVSA has offered $1 million from its U.S.-based refinery unit Citgo for relief efforts.


*Now THIS is what a political thread/post looks like.

Of course. Somehow, I feel he's not the only leader (3rd world or not) thinking this. He's merely insane or stoooopid enough to say it out loud.

File Chavez' remarks under: "Don't give a rats furry butt what a communist leader of a 3rd world country thinks".Hugo Chavez is a Democratically elected President of Venezuela. Though he is a leftist, he is not a professed communist. He is a former Army Paratrooper and considered a populist. He is incredibly popular with the populace in his country.

Here's what bothers me:

"chuckling in a reference to Bush without naming him directly."

Now I don't know if you are on Hugo's side here (which is inexcusable if you call yourself a patriot, I don't know if you do) but laughing about any of this situation and blaming a President for a natural disaster is simply silly. That's is absurd, absolutely absurd.
You do nothing to help your cause by hanging out here, I hope you realize that. You actually do more for the right than the left, are you aware of that? Thank you BTW

ROFL... Best post on this thread by far... Just think if President Bush laughed @ the Tsunami victims and their government... and then pulled back from aid because they didnt have a plan.... I think we helped them out with a plan as well,

This was all an agenda thing with Hugo. Say he tried to help, but then pulls away... Im sure he can use that aid in his own country... Ive been there and it is not a pretty place.

He promises things to his people but will try to become a dictator by the end of his term... (bank on it)

Well if you admit that you "don't have time to sit around and see what the idiots in hollywood are up to", therefore revealing you are uninformed on the topic, how can you then automatically assume that they are not doing anything to help?
