Chavez Says Has Informant In White House

From his fans at the DNC's Associated Press:

Chavez Says He Has White House Informant


CARACAS, Venezuela Oct 1, 2006 (AP)— Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said Sunday he has received warnings from within the White House that the Bush administration is plotting to assassinate him or topple his left-leaning government.

Citing what he said were warnings from an alleged White House informant, Chavez told thousands of supporters at a campaign rally that President Bush has ordered him to be killed before he leaves office in 2008.

Bush "has said that before he goes, Hugo Chavez shouldn't be the president of Venezuela," Chavez told the crowd. "The president of the United States has said it, especially in recent days. What he doesn't know is that I have friends in the White House."

The Venezuelan leader has claimed before that the U.S. government is out to kill him allegations that U.S. officials deny…

Chavez vowed to win the Dec. 3 vote and continue governing this South American nation until 2021. "Fourteen more years, that's what's coming," Chavez said.

Venezuela's Constitution allows a president to be re-elected only once in immediate succession. If Chavez wins a second six-year term in December, he wouldn't be able to run again in 2012 without a legal change.

Chavez has floated the possibility of changing Venezuela's constitution to allow indefinite re-election.

Hugo Chavez should know better than to believe anything Bob Woodward says.

But his obsession with Bush and the imagined plots against his life is becoming pathological.

Who really believes he's worth the trouble for anyone to bump him off?

And right now Chavez is probably the top recruiter for the Republican Party.

(Alternating with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.)
