Obama, Chavez Shake Hands at Summit of the Americas

Venezuela quoted Chavez as saying, "I'd like to be your friend," while Obama reportedly expressed thanks, though this couldn't immediately be confirmed with the Obama administration.

FOXNews.com

Friday, April 17, 2009


President Obama shook hands with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez on Friday at the opening of the Summit of the Americas being held this weekend in Trinidad and Tobago.

Photos released by the Venezuelan government show Obama clasping Chavez's hand and smiling broadly, and Venezuela quoted Chavez as saying, "I'd like to be your friend," while noting that he shook President Bush's hand eight years ago with the same hand. Obama reportedly expressed thanks.

A senior White House official said the encounter came before the summit's opening ceremonies during a meeting with the heads of state. Obama talked to many of the 25 or so leaders who were there at the time. At one point, he walked across the room and introduced himself to Chavez.

The official wouldn't directly confirm Venezuela's version of the encounter but didn't dispute it. Chavez spoke in English, the official said.

Earlier Friday, Dan Restrepo, the president's top Western Hemisphere adviser on the National Security Council, had told FOX News Obama might cross paths with Chavez.

"A chance encounter if it occurs," Restrepo said, in describing such a meeting. "Let's put the animosities behind us. Let's not have old arguments.

"Let's not have tired ideological arguments. Let's get down to figuring out how we can advance things that are in our national interest. Things that matter to the United States that should matter to Venezuela. Putting the arguments and ideologies of the past aside and working on pragmatic solutions to real problems that face our countries today," he said.

Chavez, the leftist Venezuelan president, has been an outspoken critic of the United States, and in particular former President George W. Bush, whom Chavez notoriously once called the "diablo," or devil.

Since Obama's election, Chavez has varied from insult to optimism in his assessment of the new U.S. president.

I think his goal is to be more popular in other countries rather than the one he is supposed to run. Its ridiculous what he is sacrificing for popularity.

And do you notice it's not the regular "I'm the President, it's polite to shake your hand" handshake? It's the brotha "Word up homey! We got them crackers over a barrel don't we" shake

Just curious, does obama get a chance to talk to these people privately? Does he have the ability to talk to these people and make conspiracies against the US? It appears that he is talking to all the right people trying to make amends with the worlds evil people that we as a Christian Country shouldnt care to mess with... I mean if he is talking to these people only publically then what would it hurt? Basically besides the obvious does he have the abilty to screw the county with the foriegn leaders? (my spelling sucks and im also not educated in polotics) just curious

I wonder if listening to Daniel Ortega bash him for 50 minutes will make him reconsider meeting with communists? Probably not, but it didn't hurt.

Sadly accurate.

Obama is just a stepping stone.

1/19/09, the last day of Free America.
Pericles "Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it. "

"[T]he people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government and to reform, alter, or totally change the same when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it." --Samuel Adams

PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad and Tobago -- President Obama endured a 50-minute diatribe from socialist Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega that lashed out at a century of what he called terroristic U.S. aggression in Central America and included a rambling denunciation of the U.S.-imposed isolation of Cuba's Communist government.

Obama sat mostly unmoved during the speech but at times jotted notes. The speech was part of the opening ceremonies at the fifth Summit of the Americas here.

Later, at a photo opportunity with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Obama held his tongue when asked what he thought about Ortega's speech.

"It was 50 minutes long. That's what I thought."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ignored two questions about Ortega's speech, instead offering lengthy praise of a cultural performance of dance and song opening the summit.

"I thought the cultural performance was fascinating," Clinton said. Asked again about the Ortega speech, Clinton said: "To have those first class Caribbean entertainers on all on one stage and to see how much was done in such a small amount of space, I was overwhelmed."

A senior administration official declined to criticize Ortega, saying the president wanted to focus on the future.

"His expectation is that these debates of the past can remain that, debates of the past and that the leaders can take advantage of this opportunity to focus on what they can do in the future to advance the interests of all the people of the hemisphere."

There is plenty to bag on this guy for, without having to resort to racism. You lessen yourself, and your arguments by calling him a N*gger.

The left has racism as their only refuge to our arguments.

"The right are just mad a black man is in office" Sound familiar?

Leave race out of it, so they can't bring race into it.

Maybe he is killing them with kindness?

I still think we should kick chavez's ass, but it is interesting watching these latin american leaders rant and rave and obama just ignores it, and keeps pressing the flesh.

We did clean up WMD's and chemical agents.
There are uncountable greatful Iraqis THAT I TALK WITH EVEY DAY who have had their lives change for the better because of our involvment. Take your weak-ass argument elsewhere.

BTW, you're welcome for the chemical clean-up.

Thank you, sir.
Of course it is not you I disagree with in this. It is our government and it's motivation...
or more spacifically, what I personally see it to be. I may be wrong in my beliefs and opinions.
I am indeed lucky to live in a place where I can do that with no further harm than a little web rash.
I am outspoken enough to gripe my gripes. I should be so in my thanks and respect as well.
I do mean it when I say thank you, sir.

LOL... not a problem, but the way you introduced those questions, you made it sound like there wasn't a threat or a reason for us to be over here. That'll get under the wrong person's skin. Even though I get compensated well for being out here, I don't think I'd be a part of this mission if I didn't believe in it. I wouldn't believe in it if I didn't see the need to be here, but I have first-hand knowledge of the threat that WAS here. Part of the problem is that terminating the threat we had also opened us up for the responsibility of leaving this place safely for us AND them.

I could nebver pretend to know enough details to have a sound opinion on weather she should be there enough... like all civilians. We just don't like to be lied to, that's the bottom line. It makes the whole thing look like an oil heist... hence the speculation of that.
W has never been good at speaking the truth... or at lieing.

W had one of the toughest periods during his Administration. I'm surprised he did as well as he did. I'll wait to see what people say about his Administration in the future. I'll be surprised if it doesn't turn out to be AT LEAST in the top half of all US Presidencies.

Did you catch the book chavez gave obama. This should give obama some stuff to apologize about.


“Open Veins of Latin America” was written by Eduardo Galeano (then a professor at the University of Montevideo) in Uruguay in 1971. For promoting left-wing views, the book was banned in Chile, Argentina and Uruguay. Since we live in a free society, the book is available in the United States through Amazon.com, despite the fact that it pretty much denounces everything that America has ever done south of Texas. The book describes how the United States is responsible for the exploitation and oppression in Latin America for the last hundred years or so. The author blames the United States and European colonization for Latin America’s poverty.

You can't fix stupid, but you can vote it out.

There's a good chance Barry has already read that book, right after he memorized "Rules for Radicals"...
