Score 2 points for democrats . . .
Good for them! I'm glad to hear this.
I may disagree with Bush on many issues, but to use the UN for such vitriol is unacceptable. I'm glad these Democrats recognize that fact and condemn such action.
We are getting awfully close to November. (Just a thought) Afterall, how are the statements by Chavez all that different from those of some Democrats, including Rangel and Pelosi, over the last 5 years?
Charlie's just testing the water. He's a useful tool for the dems, he's not up for re-election, so any reaction from the kook blogosphere will only fall on him. He pulled the exact same type of thing with his draft rumor, after writing the legislation himself.
Not fooled. The only reason Charlie's saying anything is because Chavez words strike too close to home, they sound just like a read of the daily Kos & the Huffy post, or move-on.org. Dems are in big trouble, and they know it.
BTW, boycott Citgo oil.
Well, I'm glad....no matter what the reason.
It's kinda like, okay, I can pick on my little brother but you better not try it...see? Kinda like that.
I am glad to hear such a defense from the libs. To bad whatsherface from the dixie chics couldnt maintain such form.
However I find his phrases interesting:
Everyone of these statement have been made in public by the libs. (and even on this board)He is just repeating what he heard from them.
Descent is not necessarily public floggings. and in the age of instant media it gives our enemies fuel. this is a clear example.
Yeah, but we didn't call him Satan or say that he reeks of sulphur. I don't recall that anyone called him a dictator.
Oh, I think he's clever enough to see these things for himself.
I'm not sure what this means.
Chavez is not our enemy, although some would like to make him one.
While I still think the Dem's did right.
But if Chavez is your buddy now . . . I think the Dem's would be conservative in your book.
You haven't seen any polls lately, have you?
Polls ? :laugh:
I remember them telling me Kerry was going to be president.
But it does appear that I wasa wrong about Charlie being up for re-election. But I was right about the blogs ripping into them. Check out daily Kos & the rest of the nutroots. They ain't happy. And they're the ones footin' the bill, lately.
The daily kos reports that bloggers are nut casses . . .
He may be, but the good ones aren't . . .
That's funny. I tracked four different polls through the entire election and never found one that predicted a Kerry victory. Most of them consistently said it would be close and the only one that went over the edge this last time was Zogby, who depended on exit polling in Ohio to predict a trending Kerry victory there. Who would have thought that the Secretary of State would not count 180,000 provisional votes?
I don't look at polls. No matter what you say, I remember a Kerry victory being predicted.
Now, why do you suppose Chavez & daily Kos sound so much alike ?
Oh Yea! the big three abc cbs nbc all had Kerry ahead.
With friends like chavez who needs enemies.
Bottom line? Bush is weak and venial, and an embarassment to real Americans.
And we have a right and a duty to criticize him for his many failures.
But Chavez doesn't. Wrangle had it exactly right.
Of course, Bush and his few remaining followers have so debased patriotism that they cannot recognize that Wrangle did what any American would have done.
Patriotism is just another buzzword in a campaign ad for them. The notion that Wrangle might say something that was politically unwise, but patriotic, is completely incomprehensible to them.
And now back to reality.
As a real American, the President has embarassed me less than some on this board.
Come to think of it . . . his predecessor was not as embarassing as some are . . .
I bet Bush knows how to spell Rangel. :smilewinkgrin:
Just a little info on the country of Venezuela from Wikipedia:
Infant mortality in Venezuela stands at over 22 deaths per 1000 births, a rate that places Venezuela behind Mexico, Panama, Colombia and many other countries of its region; for comparision the infant death rate is about eight times as high as Sweden. Child malnutrition (for children under age five) stands at about 17 percent of the population classified as stunted or wasted, which are the official United Nations categories for malnutrition. Areas more affected by the stunting and wasting include some of the poorest areas: Amacuro Delta (30%) and Amazonas (24%).
According to the United Nations, the fraction of population without adequate sanitation is 32 percent, with a majority of people in many rural areas lacking in this basic commodity. Travellers to Venezuela are advised to obtain vaccinations for a variety of diseases including typhoid, yellow fever, cholera, hepatitis A, hepatitis B and hepatitis D. In a cholera epidemic of contemporary times in the Orinoco Delta, Venezuela's political leaders were accused of racial profiling of their own indigeneous people to deflect blame from the country's institutions, thereby aggravating the epicemic. Visitors to Venezuela are advised to drink only bottled water, due to the prevalence of cross contamination of drinking water with untreated sewage. There are approximately 5,000,000 people in Venezuela living without access to safe drinking water, resulting in a percentage of population ranking of Venezuela among the poorest in South America. As of the year 1999 there were an estimated 110,000 people in Venezuela living with HIV. 
Hugo Chavez better get his own house in order before he meddles here.
