Chavez Attacks Romney, Calls Obama ‘Good Guy’

From an unfazed Associated Press:

Chavez says his opponent, Romney share agenda

Venezuela’s Chavez signals preference in US presidential race, comparing his rival to Romney

By Christopher Toothaker | July 23, 2012

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez has signaled a preference in the U.S. presidential campaign by comparing Mitt Romney to his own challenger.

Actually, there is something to what he says.

Chavez, who is up for re-election a month before U.S. President Barack Obama, has in recent weeks expressed a clear preference for the man currently in the White House.

In a campaign speech Saturday night, Chavez equated the agenda of his challenger, Henrique Capriles, with that of Romney, saying both men represent the callously selfish capitalist elite.

Then by Chavez’s own logic, he and Obama must share the same agenda. (As if we hadn’t guessed.)

But, of course, no surprise to hear that kind of class warfare language from an avowed Communist. However, it is still a little unsettling to hear it from the President of the United States. Though we are getting used to it, unfortunately.

Chavez claims Capriles, a moderate former governor, is trying to trick Venezuelans into believing he genuinely cares about the poor, the core of Venezuelan president’s constituency.

Doesn’t it sound like Chavez and Obama are reading from the same teleprompter? Perhaps David Axelrod is running Chavez’s re-election campaign, too.

"I believe the person to best explain the loser’s agenda isn’t Barack Obama but rather Romney, because it’s the extreme right-wing agenda that borders on the fascism of the United States," Chavez told tens of thousands of supporters in the western city of Maracaibo.

"In the end, it’s the same project," Chavez said, referring to Obama as "a good guy." …

Which is really all anyone needs to remember in the upcoming election. Everything else is just ‘optics.’

    Nothing like getting an endorsement from a petty dictator with peculiar diction.

      Now we just need Castro to rise from his death bed and endorse Obama too. But I doubt that would raise a red flag amongst the left either.

    “…..rather Romney, because it’s the extreme right-wing agenda that borders on the fascism of the United States,”…..

    That statement is really rich, coming from the guy who nationalized the petroleum industry in his own country, along with many other industries there. Hey Hugo! Define fascism for me, you moron! Another syphilitic oxygen thief just waiting to check out.

    • untrainable says:

      Fascism : a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.

      To say that Republicans in America are closest to fascism is patently foolish. Democrats in general, and Oblameless in particular, are known specifically for suppressing the opposition. Look at the Regime’s treatment of the Tea Party. Hell there have been articles all over the news that state “The Obama admin. are going to try to suppress the votes of white working class Americans.

      The major difference in the parties as they relate to fascism. When a Republican hears a Democrat telling lies and making empty promises… we call him a liar and refute them with facts. When a Democrat hears a republican speaking truth, they get down and dirty and attempt to suppress the words and tell people not to listen. When a republican sees something on TV or hears something on the radio that they don’t like, they change the channel. When a democrat hears something on TV or radio that they don’t like, they boycott and threaten advertisers and attempt to have them taken off the air. Now you tell me, which American political party is closest to fascism?

    Is Alinsky a paid consultant for Chavez? What’s next, Putin and Kim Jong Un giving their ringing endorsements to the boy king?

    Wake up America, the despots of the world are backing the moron in the White House. I would hope that means something to the masses out there.
