Don't be a whiner.

President Bush has called for Latin American's to "defend strong democratic institutions and reject any drift back to the days of authoritarian rule". With these remarks was a clear jab at the "leader" of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. A leftist leader and bedmate of Castro, Chavez needs his head examined. With little better things to do besides hurl lame insults at the US for the past two days, Chavez is clearly deserving of criticism, and any comments plainly warranted.

There are three upcoming presidential elections in Latin America in the near future. The people are urged to make the right decisions and stray away from Chavez' authoritarian and antiquated socialist views. There apparently are two ways to go according to the President: one includes being integrated into the world stage and having a representative government and the other "seeks to roll back the democratic progress of the past two decades by playing to fear, pitting neighbor against neighbor and blaming others for their own failures to provide for the people". That seems pretty accurate to me. Why anyone would want this for their country is beyond me. But, that's pretty much Nutso Chavez in the flesh. Hopefully the people of Latin America are smart enough to make the right decision.
