CONG. RANGEL CONDEMNS CHAVEZ'S ATTACK ON BUSH

WASHINGTON - I want to express my extreme displeasure with statements by the President of Venezuela attacking U.S. President George Bush in such a personal and disparaging way during his remarks at the United Nations General Assembly.

It should be clear to all heads of government that criticism of Bush Administration policies, either domestic or foreign, does not entitle them to attack the President personally.

George Bush is the President of the United States and represents the entire country. Any demeaning public attack against him is viewed by Republicans and Democrats, and all Americans, as an attack on all of us.

FYI:

Congressman Charles B. Rangel is serving his eighteenth term as the Representative from the 15th Congressional District, comprising East and Central Harlem, the Upper West Side, and Washington Heights/Inwood.

Rep. Rangel: Bush Policies Are To Blame for Hurricane Catastrophe

President Bush Is 'Our Bull Connor,' Harlem's Rep. Charles Rangel Claims

By MEGHAN CLYNE - Staff Reporter of the Sun

mdyoung,

Rangel is no friend of the President. Neither is Pelosi and here's what she had to say:

"Hugo Chavez fancies himself a modern day Simon Bolivar but all he is an everyday thug," House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said at a news conference, referring to Chavez' comments in a U.N. General Assembly speech on Wednesday.

"Hugo Chavez abused the privilege that he had, speaking at the United Nations," said Pelosi, a frequent Bush critic. "He demeaned himself and he demeaned Venezuela."

So yeah, i don't know what's up. Neither Rangel nor Pelosi (nor Democratic activists in general) have had any qualms in personally attacking the President in the past. He looks like a chimp, he's dumb, etc etc. Those are not policy objections, they are personal attacks. All Chavez did is do as the Democrats do.

Chavez is a thug; can't stand him.

Same could be said about Bush.

I don't disagree with that. I'm no fan of Bush. I think Chavez is worse, though. I guess the devil you know is better, eh? :D

Why do you take it personally with regard to Chavez? I think he's much needed change in South American politics and I'm glad somebody finally thumbed their noses at our foreign policies.

Gupt,

To paraphrase a well-known expression, with enemies like Chavez who needs friends?

Chavez may have some good points, and some good reasons for some of his opinions and beliefs, but he negates them by his own behaviors. He could be much more effective in accomplishing his objectives if he behaved differently. Soooo... Go Chavez!

I don't take it personally at all. I dated a Venezuelan in college who was in Maracaibo for one of Chavez's coup attempts. His stories were horrifying. Unfortunately I don't remember all of the details; I just came away with a strong dislike for Hugo Chavez. The guy's a scumbag.

Everyone has their own version of the truth. I don't think the guy's a saint, but we've erected dictators in South America that make him look like a boy scout, and most South Americans haven't forgotten that fact. To them, Chavez is a hero. It's really all subjective.

Excuse me, to who Chavez is a hero? not for me nor for the vast majority of venezuelan people and that is the truth and not a version of the truth. Chavez is just a chatterbox that just like to talk against nations that are stronger than our nations, after all he needs somebody to blame for his ineptitude, somebody has to be responsible for all the disgrace that this world lives, and Bush is, acording to the venezuelan comedian that sometimes pretend to be president, this one to blame.

I just want to say something if Bush is the Devil, Chavez is the Devil’s Excrement
