Notwithstanding Nancy Pelosi and Charlie Rangel's condemnation of Chavez' speech at the U.N. (on technicalities related not to substantive differences with Chavez, but rather, with his agressive delivery) let's see which of these statements the Democrats would disagree with that Chavez had made:
1. Chavez also alleged during the U.N. speech that the United States is planning, financing and setting in motion a coup to overthrow him. The U.S. has denied such accusations in the past.
2. As he was exiting the U.N. building in New York, Chavez told reporters that Bush is not a legitimate president because he "stole the elections."
3. "He doesn't have the slightest idea of politics. He got where he is because he is the son of his father. He was an alcoholic, an ex-alcoholic. He's a sick man, full of complexes, but very dangerous now because he has a lot of power."
4. In the United States, rich people are getting richer, and poor people are getting poorer, he said. "That's not a democracy; that's a tyranny."
This sounds like it's straight out of the Democratic National Committee "Talking Points" manual.
So either Chavez is a Democrat or the Democrats are commies.
