Much conjecture surrounded Obama shaking the hand of HUGO CHAVEZ . Spin Meisters like David Axelrod told America this was a good thing and we were repairing all the damage inflicted by the failed George Bush administration .Conservative thinkers took the opposite approach and denounced Obama's interaction with arguably the most evil tyrant on the planet. Make no mistake about it , Foreign dignitaries simply do not just " bump into each other " at these summits.Obama had this pre planned
I wrote a few days ago that Chavez used Obama to strengthen his book sales and stir up anti-Americanism.
Let's examine events leading up to the handshake

CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez said on Sunday his U.S. counterpart Barack Obama was at best an "ignoramus" for saying the socialist leader exported terrorism and obstructed progress in Latin America.
"He goes and accuses me of exporting terrorism: the least I can say is that he’s a poor ignoramus; he should read and study a little to understand reality," said Chavez, who heads a group of left-wing Latin American leaders opposed to the U.S. influence in the region.
Chavez said Obama’s comments had made him change his mind about sending a new ambassador to Washington, after he withdrew the previous envoy in a dispute last year with the Bush administration in which he also expelled the U.S. ambassador to Venezuela.
"When I saw Obama saying what he said, I put the decision back in the drawer; let’s wait and see," Chavez said on his weekly television show, adding he had wanted to send a new ambassador to improve relations with the United States after the departure of George W. Bush as president.
In a January interview with Spanish-language U.S. network Univision, Obama said Chavez had hindered progress in Latin America, accusing him of exporting terrorist activities and supporting Colombian guerrillas.
"My, what ignorance; the real obstacle to development in Latin America has been the empire that you today preside over," said Chavez, who is a fierce critic of U.S. foreign policy.
The truth of the matter is that Chavez gave AL QUEIDA over 1 million dollars after the 911 attacks
Knowing all this and allowing Chavez to call him an "ignoramus" and Obama arranges to meet him and accepts his " socialism guide for dummies 101 book'? Was this inexperience ? A simply miscalculation? Was Obama failed by the teleprompter ?NO folks, Obama has the SOCIALIST play book and is running it page by page to destroy our country .
Leading up to the election many warned about Obama " palling around with terrorists".
Obama can now lay claim to the CASTRO brothers, Daniel Ortega , and Hugo Chavez as his latest friends .
Obama really blew this last trip, he humiliated himself and the American public, perhaps on his next international trip he can have some put a sign on the back of his hand tailored suit that reads " KICK ME "
Good news is that we are going to have nationalized train service " , " but the trains ran on time "
