Daily Kos: Bush vs. Chavez

Armando sez:

It so happens that I agree with Bush's negative assessment of Chavez. But Bush is not the man to deliver this message, or frankly, any message, on this, or anything. I suppose it is hard for any President to accept they lack moral authority, but this President has no authority to lecture anybody.

From the NYTimes:

President Bush, in tough remarks aimed at Venezuela's leftist president, Hugo Chavez, called on Latin America today to choose between two competing futures - an American-supported "vision of hope" and another that "seeks to roll back the democratic progress of the past two decades." Such a democratic retrenchment, the president said, would be "playing to fear, pitting neighbor against neighbor, and blaming others for their own failures to provide for their people."

. . . [H]is barbs at [Chavez] were clear, and were in effect Mr. Bush's response to [Chavez] who led an anti-American rally of more than 25,000 people on Friday in Mar Del Plata, Argentina, while Mr. Bush was attending a summit meeting there.
