President Obama shook hands with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez on Friday at the opening of the Summit of the Americas being held this weekend in Trinidad and Tobago.

It wasn't immediately clear Friday evening what words were exchanged between the two leaders, but photos released by the Venezuelan government show Obama clasping Chavez's hand and smiling broadly.

OMG, that's a "bro" handshake.

Or perhaps a modern "comrade" shake?

As is the case with most American leftists, Obama never met a foe of the U.S. that he didn’t like.

Let’s face it. It’s only a matter of time before Hugo and the Castro brothers will be honored guests at the White House. They’re on the same page politically with Barry Obama in the same way that, say, Berlusconi and Blair were on the same page as Bush.

The pic you posted is much more revolting.

Sometimes in life we just end up having to shake hands with people we don't like. A begrudging handshake with no smile wouldn't have bothered me too much, but the pic you link shows him smiling broadly and even putting his hand on Chavez's shoulder - body language that says "you're my friend."

Obama is a disgrace.

if this is true then it is disgusting that this man in the white house is being nice to our enemies but ignoring our allies.
He has upset our allies and yet is shaking and bowing to other countries who hate us

DISGUSTING

This is not a simple handshake. This is a two armed brother to brother grab. Look at the sly smile on the thug's face, his left hand, and the sh*t eating grin on the thug's face to the right.

In just days Obama has shown prostrating deference to islamic kings, covered up the name of Christ, issued law enforcement circulars targeting returning military and those with conservative values, and opened diplomatic channels with sworn enemies of the United States.

Perhaps the first campaign pledge he's kept, before he said he wouldn't keep it:

Meeting with rogue dictators without preconditions.

exactly this is not a gentleman’s hand shake this is the ghetto shake.

this is appalling, first bowing , talking to chavez , shaking hands with chavez and now Castro, not too mention talking to Iran

meanwhile he has upset our allies especially the UK who has lost men and women helping us overseas in this war on terror

he is dong this hardest to upset Bush and other past presidents, he us living undoing more than 40 years of work .

I am totally convinced now he hates this country and we have been infiltrated by commies.
Ayers, Soros ,set him up and they got him in there to destroy us as they knew their violence was not working

this has been in the works for years upon years now , he needs to go, surely there is enough stuff out there to get him out of the white house.
There has to be evidence to show obama is an enemy of this country.
could someone not get that blackberry or find papers like his B/C

“Every enemy of America, has a good friend in Comrade Obama.”

Well put.

Hear is an article in the Latin American Herald Tribune about Chavez.

“This is not a government, it’s a cancer.”

correct hiding the name of Jesus, to being with chavez, wanting Iran to talk to to saying we are the enemy to saying we are wrong and we are arrogant

no one could now say we were infiltrated and he is out to destroy this country.
it is plain as day to what is going on right now

he wants to destroy this country and make us a commie country.

The GOP had better get some balls right now as if they don’;t then we need to form another party and get rid of the RINO’s
