Where’s the Love?

Hugo Chavez: hard to please.

Why do Liberals crave so much to be loved by thugs the likes of Chavez?  And the mullahs?  I have a recurring picture of that emotionally neglected woman crawling after her abusive husband crying “love me!”  Such advances are almost always met with contempt.


“Let’s not kid ourselves: the Obama illusion has finished, and the shameless interventionism of the American administration shows that,” wrote Chavez.

Having opposed the Copenhagen climate change summit’s final agreement as a behind-doors deal between major powers that ignored nations on the margins, Chavez said rich nations were making a mockery of U.N. principles of equality.

“Those leaving us on the verge of an unimaginable ‘ecocide,’ those who caused climate change, should be forced to accept their responsibilities,” he said.

Where’s the love, Hugo Chavez? Sure, he hasn’t lifted the embargo on Cuba, and couldn’t deliver the free goodies at Copenhagen, and his Nobel Peace Prize was essentially returned unopened.  But he is a president, after all, not an emperor.  And China calls its own shots.  Does he really deserve this?:


Chavez, who was not included on the original list of speakers for the final day of the summit, ended the proceedings with bitter references to the Peace Prize-winning Obama as the “Nobel Prize of War.”

The Nobel Prize of War just finished saying here that he is here to act. Well, show it sir. Don’t leave by the back door,” he said.

Three years after Chavez likened Bush to the devil during a speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, the socialist strongman tore into Obama, claiming Friday that “it still smells like sulfur in the world.”

The rest here.

Wasn’t it enough that President Obama refused Chavez’s nemesis, Colombia, MFN trade status?  Did President Obama not get any props at all for denouncing Honduras for ousting the Chavez puppet, Manuel Zelaya in that entirely legal “military coup”, and then proceed to impose punishing sanctions on that poverty-stricken country?  They shook hands, they exchanged gifts.  What more does Chavez want?  I have little affection for these Third World blowhards and their premise that the World “owes them”.  I like even less the Liberal craving to be loved by these guys.  Because it is seen as weakness and does not serve our national interests.  President Obama has made his first impression, and you can’t ever take those back.

  1. […] Hugo Chavez is still blaming Copenhagen’s failure on Barack Obama, this courageous environmental reporter dares to step outside the same tired blame-the-West box. […]
