Hugo Chavez To Comrade Bush, "You are a Socialist."

GOD, if the shoe fits...Hugo Chavez just delivered a stinging accusation at President George W. Bush, accusing him of doing the same thing he critized Hugo Chavez for doing...over riding market laws to protect the economy. OUCH! He went on further to claim Comrade George Bush is becoming a Socialist! Shaking my head...the sad thing about this article is that it is hard to argue with.

Chavez names ‘Comrade Bush’ a socialist

George Bush has been the target of fresh jibes by Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez for doing exactly what he was criticising the socialist leader for – overriding market laws to protect the economy.

Critics say the U.S. bailout plan is an example of a double standard by the Bush administration, reports America’s McClatchy newspaper.

"If the Venezuelan government, for example, approves a law to protect consumers, they say, 'Take notice, Chavez is a tyrant!'" said Chavez, speaking in one of his recent weekly television shows.

"Or they say, 'Chavez is regulating prices. He is violating the laws of the marketplace.' How many times have they criticised me for nationalising the phone company? They say, 'The state shouldn't get involved in that.' But now they don't criticize Bush for having to nationalise (the biggest banks in the world.) Comrade Bush, how are you?"

Warming to his theme, he added: "Comrade Bush is heading toward socialism."
