I actually read through this whole speech after hearing that Chavez called Bush the devil (it's a really good speech). It's probably a somewhat unfortunate choice of words for Hugo, but in my humble opinion Bush is a monster and not the devil. Call it six of one and a half dozen of the other, but I think the subtle difference is important. The devil comment will no doubt be considered over the top by many, but I think there's not too many folks left that doubt Bush is a monster (and a crazed one at that).

Anyway, I want to encourage folks again to read the speech, it really surprised me how inciteful it was. Meanwhile the MSM will focus on one remark; and ignore Chavez's excellent points about U.S. hypocracy in the war terror, lack of democracy at the U.N., autonomy for developing nations, and even recommends a Noam Chomsky title for all to read.
