Venezuela's Chavez says Obama has "stench" of Bush Sat Jan 17, 2009 4:44pm EST
CAMPO CARABOBO, Venezuela (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said on Saturday Barack Obama had the "stench" of his predecessor as U.S. president and was at risk of being killed if he tries to change the American "empire."
Most world leaders expect a new era of U.S. foreign relations when Obama, a Democrat, is sworn in as president on Tuesday after Republican George W. Bush's eight years in the White House.
But Chavez said frayed ties with Washington were unlikely to improve despite the departure of Bush, who the Venezuelan leader has often called the "devil."
"I hope I am wrong, but I believe Obama brings the same stench, to not say another word," Chavez said at a political rally on a historic Venezuelan battlefield.
"If Obama as president of the United States does not obey the orders of the empire, they will kill him, like they killed Kennedy, like they killed Martin Luther King, or Lincoln, who freed the blacks and paid with his life."
Obama, who will be the first black president in U.S. history, was given Secret Service protection on the campaign trail earlier than is customary for candidates and security for Tuesday's inauguration is extremely tight.
Venezuela is a leading supplier of oil to the United States and the two countries once enjoyed close ties.
Relations deteriorated after Chavez first won election in 1998 as he took on U.S. companies as part of his socialist agenda of nationalization of various industries and accused Washington of backing a brief coup against him.
Last year, he expelled the U.S. ambassador from Venezuela.

almost like a bloody albotross
Short honeymoon. I thought Barry was going to restore our standing in the world.
Oh my, is the love gone?
Chavez has the stench of a third world banana republic dictator ie. Rotten Banana’s.
Hey Hugo... eat $hit you commie tool.
“Venezuela’s Chavez says Obama has “stench” of Bush “
man! this fat ass pig has got a lot of room to talk
Why he isn’t maggot fodder is beyond me
“No, Hugo. Actually, I’m the one with the stench of Bush.”
Chavez need not worry. He’s got special ties into the CIA via Linda Panetta (good ole Leon’s little girl). He’s just trying to divert attention from his close connection to the Director of the CIA.
At least Bush didn’t declare himself a mad dictator for life ignoring constitutional protocol like you fat Hugo...El Puerco de Venezuela. Your place in history is the trash bin...the sooner the better.
Venezuelas Chavez says Obama has bush stench
Looks like even a socialist president can’t get Hugo to stop being an annoying loudmouth turd.
“Guess the honeymoon is over before he even got to the alter.”
In this case, one must consider the source, especially after reading the entire article.
Hugo will slight anyone in order to maintain his ‘position’.
(that’s one of the failings of ‘Despot School’, you graduate, but there’s always undergrads to deal with)
If he can get past the smell, he’ll be all right.
A new Tailhook scandal, with an aftersmell
Well, who knows? It could be a blessing in disguise. If the islamofascists like Chavez make an enemy of 0bama, maybe the libtards will turn their screeching wrath against the actual enemies of America.
Yes, and it will be rather sweet when that day comes and they try to explain why it’s different now, as opposed to when Bush was prez.
