    Bush: Chavez doing 'disservice' to Venezuela

    IS THIS THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK OR WHAT???

    Bush: Chavez doing 'disservice' to Venezuela
    OMAHA, Nebraska (AP) -- President Bush on Wednesday suggested that Venezuela's fiery anti-American President Hugo Chavez has done "a great disservice to the traditions and people" of his South American nation.
    Venezuela is a major supplier of oil to the United States, but relations between Chavez and the Bush administration have deteriorated sharply.
    Chavez, an ally of Cuba's Fidel Castro, has called Bush an alcoholic, a terrorist and an imperialist.
    He has denounced the U.S.-led war in Iraq and repeatedly accused the United States of trying to overthrow him to seize his country's vast oil reserves.
    U.S. officials have denied that allegation and accused the confrontational leftist of being a threat to Latin American democracies.

    Recently, the Bush administration has expressed concern about what it says is Chavez' "ideological affinity" with two leftist guerrilla groups operating in neighboring Colombia and Venezuela's multibillion dollar arms acquisition program.
    On a visit to the Juan Diego Center in Omaha, Bush met Lourdes Secola, who told him that she came to the United States 25 years ago Wednesday from Venezuela to get an education and work in dentistry.
    "I'm a little worried about your country," Bush said after listening to her story. "I'm worried about it, a little worried about it. I think it'll be OK."
    But Bush added: "It's going to take awhile. Sometimes leaders show up who do a great disservice to the traditions and people of a country."

    Yeah, like Bush has done to ours.
    We are NOT a nation of immigrants!

    Hmmm, that's exactly what we've been telling President Bush in reference to his stand on illegal immigration?

    OUR President and the Senate for Mexico aren't too concerned about the American people either

    and Hugo Chavez isn't handing out roadmaps to the citizens to illegally enter the United States and "schemes" to access to federal programs. While in Madrid, Spain on May 16, 2002 in his speech on "Mexican Policy in the 21st Century," Mexican President Vincente Fox said that
    "In the last few months we have managed to achieve an improvement in the situation of many Mexicans in that country, regardless of their migratory status, through schemes that have permitted them access to health and education systems, identity documents, as well as the full respect for their labor and human rights. . . . The second axis of Mexico's foreign policy has been the construction of a strategic association for prosperity with the United States and Canada.... " and he said "Eventually our long-range objective is to establish with the United States, but also with Canada, our other regional partner . . . the movement of capital, goods, services, and persons."

    It's funny that his administration doesn't seem to have problem with a Venezuela company, Smartmatic, controlling voting machines in the US.

    This is the same company that certified Hugo Chavez's election in 2004, even though exit polls showed him losing by a wide margin.

    Smartmatic's software is proprietary and not available for independent verification.

    Yet Bush's Treasury Department can't be bothered to look into the company, much like they couldn't be bothered to investigate the Dubai ports deal.

    Oh well, it's just another sunny day in Bushland.
    It's like hell vomited and the Bush administration appeared.

    they're all too busy working for Mexico and illegal aliens to bother with the common good of the American people and the states
