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.

The article said — “Venezuela’s Chavez says Obama has “stench” of Bush”

Well..., that’s good to hear. I would hate to think that Obama and Chavez get to be buddies... :-)

He’s right... They are both socialists. But I’m surprised Chavez can tell whether the stench is coming from them, or himself.

Obama will win. Hugo is in charge of a 3rd world hole, Obama is...I can barely say it...the new leader of the free word (shudder).

Your tin foil hat is on a tad too tight there, Chavvy.

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.

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)

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.

No, only in communist countries people pay with their lives, for not obeying the orders of their government! You should know that!
