WASHINGTON Former Rep. Joe Kennedy fired off a letter Monday in response to a Florida congressman's calls for him to stop airing television commercials that heap praise on Venezuela for its providing discounted heating oil to low-income U.S. households.
"If your moral indignation requires that we not accept the discount oil to distribute to our most vulnerable families, then that same high moral standard should require that you not drive your car because it, too, probably uses gasoline made from Venezuelan oil," Kennedy wrote in a letter sent to Rep. Connie Mack, R-Fla.
"Maybe the fact that you live in Florida diminishes your concern for those who have to forgo food or medicine to pay for heat or turn to dangerous heating sources to stay warm, risking their lives to brave the cold," Kennedy wrote. "If so, maybe you could advocate that they move to your district to alleviate the need to figure out ways to protect them."
In a letter sent earlier in the day, Mack scolded Kennedy for the television ad that Mack says pays tribute to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, "a sworn enemy of the United States."
In the ad, Kennedy, founder and president of Citizens Energy Corp., a nonprofit energy company, thanks Venezuela and Citgo, a Houston-based oil company owned by the Chavez government, for contributing heating oil to low income senior citizens.
"I am Joe Kennedy. Help is on the way. Heating oil at 40 percent off from our friends in Venezuela at Citgo," Kennedy says in the commercial.

Is Kennedy really that dumb? OUR FRIENDS IN VENEZUELA???? OUR FRIENDS IN VENEZUELA????
I saw that ad for the first time within the last several days. Sick, really sick ....
Yes, sadly, Kennedy really is that dumb...
He will be on Cavuto's show tomorrow according to Cavuto this afternoon.
Maybe HIS friends in Venezuela,but you and I have no friends there.
"then that same high moral standard should require that you not drive your car because it, too, probably uses gasoline made from Venezuelan oil,"
Just one word Joe.
All you ever needed to know about what's left of the Kennedy clan right there. JFK may not have been perfect, but I get the feeling were he alive today he'd be pimp-slapping his little brother and nephew somethin HARD.
Oh, and Joe? I make it a POINT never to go to anyplace that sells CITGO.
Former Rep. Joe Kennedy is so screwed up that he did not seek reelection in Massachusetts.
ROTFLOL! What an arrogant, out of touch, dunce.
I would love to see that ad.
And yet the deluded Ma$$holes are eating it up. Sad, really--they're too gullible and/or stupid to know any better or want to change.
Little Joey does seem a bit testy, doesn't he?
When they go on the attack like that, it generally means they know they are idiots but think if they go into attack mode, no one will notice.
I see that lot with the Dems.
""If your moral indignation requires that"
No Kennedy should be allowed to use the words "moral indignation" in a sentence without the use of sarcasm tags.
Joe Kennedy's next commercial will be extolling the grand uses of nuclear energy from our friends, the Iranians.
Typical Kennedy kissing up to a Commie dictator. Even Papa Joe kissed up to Hitler. Guess that apple sits at the bottom of the tree.
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
Iran and Venezuela established a non-stop air route recently. They have been getting closer every day. I would not be surprised to see Iammadjihad offer Citizens' discounted oil/gas too. I wonder if Kennedy will take that too?
His environment-activist brother Bob is against wind energy in Mass. because it is too unsightly for the Cape Cod types.
Sure he would. Even now he's learning to pronouce Imadinnerjacket's name correctly.
The Kennedys have an imperial sense of entitlement.
