Chavey Loves Georgie

Daaaaang, Hugo. Well, ‘Ol Chavez had a heck of a lot to say about President Bush today at the United Nations General Assembly.

Hugo Chavez at the UN Today

Here are some highlights (or lowlights?) from a NYTimes article:

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, calling President Bush ”the devil.”

The impassioned speech by the leftist leader came a day after Bush and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad sparred over Tehran’s disputed nuclear program but managed to avoid a personal encounter.

”The devil came here yesterday,” Chavez said, referring to Bush’s address on Tuesday and making the sign of the cross. ”He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world.”

And maybe just a bit more from another source:

The United States will soon lose its place as leader of the world, and the United Nations is a broken organization that is beyond repair, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Wednesday.

“The United States empire is on its way down and it will be finished in the near future, inshallah,” Chavez told reporters, ending the statement with the Arabic phrase for “God willing.”

Here is a video of that speech.

And here is some seriously informed commentary on the ‘axis of evil’.
