Charity: Joe Kennedy is back, praising Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez and urging Americans to take his cheap oil by calling 1-800-JOE-FOR-OIL. Like Rep. Connie Mack, we'd like to know what Joe really owes Hugo.

Mack, a Florida Republican, told Kennedy in a letter to quit pushing Chavez's agenda by recruiting charity recipients for his distributorship of cheap Venezuelan heating oil.

Joe Kennedy is a back-stabbing traitor just like Teddy.

I have no idea why Joe Kennedy thinks this is a good idea."

I do. It is because he is an America hating dirtbag.

Questions for Kennedy: Why are you sucking up to an America-hating dictator? And since taxpayers fund LIHEAP to the tune of ten figures, who the HECK is gonna freeze?

He seems to love helping Hugo. The other more distiguished Kennedys saw communism differently.

There should be a criminal investigation into this whole matter.

The Kennedy Creed to which a Kennedy subscribes at birth: "We are annointed. We know best. And always remember, the end justifies the means and never hesitate to get into bed with anyone who might grease your palm."

(Substitute 'Clinton' in the above as needed)

On the serious side: I believe I read somewhere that the Kennedy 'holdings' include huge tracts of land in several South American countries. Perhaps Venezuala is one?

He doesn't seem to mind being Hugo's dupe.

I wonder if anyone checked the outrageuos claims in tehse ads, such as the 80 something lady who claimed to have moved an iron bed from the basement to the kitchen, as if heating from the gas stove is cheaper than fuel oil.

the as shows her dragging it along the floor. she can harldy move it, let alone carry it up a flight of stairs.

how much of these ads are truth?

Actually, I believe it. I used to do it myself when I lived in the Bronx, my landlord used to tell me to do it. But that problem is more related to the placement of the heating devices, not the presence or absence of heating oil. It's irrelevant to Joe's issues.

The other more distiguished Kennedys saw communism differently.

And others, like Papa Joe, loved Hitler.

Joe Kennedy's front company, Citizens Energy has about ten other legal companies, that we know of, all operating out of the same building. One is nonprofit, which pays Joe somewhere between 3-600K per year. Nice work, helping the poor. Anyways, the others are all private, for profit.

Would I think Joe would sell out his country for greed? Yes I do. His namesake old Joe Kennedy dealt with the Seagram's importing booze into Chicago during prohibition, and also down the east coast. He, old Joe, tried to strike a deal with the Nazis when they took over England. When England was getting ready to be overrun, Joe had booze take precedent on vital shipping space over food and weapons.

Back to Joe Kennedy. This is from memory, but he had some dealings with African communists. I can not remember the country, it was right above S. Africa on the Atlantic. They have/had lots of oil off the coast and the commies took over the coastline. Naturally, Joe was right there sucking up to them to get some sort of quid pro quo of oil for influence in Washington. Joe's cover was him bringing some browken down computers and moldy books for a catholic school out in the middle of no where.

Also Massachusetts Congressman Delahunt, and Kennedy butt boy is also very lovey-dovey with Hugo and Fidel.


Motivation? Greed over leftism.

Has anyone other than me noticed that every time the Dems send a contingent to Caracas to meet with Chavez, the price of oil goes up?

And an egomaniac to boot. I love the number "JOE 4 OIL". What happened--"Joe saves the world" was too long? Just like his hefty salary from a "non profit." Funny how so often a liberal's "good deeds" seem to benefit him (or her) in money and/or publicity.

Yeah, I think he's making a lot of money off Hugo. If I were Venezuelan, I would be horrified, it's absolutely repulsive.

What Kennedy gets from Chavez for executing his $9 million oil program isn't known. His nonprofit group doesn't disclose who paid for the ads, who wrote the script or if Venezuela's government is involved.

Open the books , Joe

What are you hiding?

Beats 1-800-TED-FOR-GIN, even though Joe was voted by his own House collegues "dumbest congressman."

Actually, anyone who gets $600,000 a year in salary as head of a non-profit for which he does zero work can't be THAT dumb.

Yep - that's where I think Joey's Chavez-love is coming from.
