  •  All I know is that Chavez and W got into (0+ / 0-)

    diplomatic spats.  And Chavez aligned himself with Kim Junk Il and Ahmadinejad, even praising Iran's crackdown of the protests after their election in 2009.  But I think he only aligned himself with those regimes because "enemy of my enemy is my friend" crap, rather than actually agreeing with them on any particular issues.

    After Obama came into office, the diplomatic spats settled down a bit, though Chavez made an ass of himself by accusing the US of imperialism for US efforts to assist Haiti after their earthquake.
