PORT OF SPAIN (AFP) – A book accusing the United States of being a neo-colonial bully in the Americas has rocketed up the sales charts, after a copy was given as a gift by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to US leader Barack Obama.
The book, "The Open Veins of Latin America" was given by Chavez, a longtime US critic, to Obama Saturday at an Americas summit in Trinidad and Tobago.
The work by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano is about the region's colonial past and exploitation by the world's big powers -- themes hammered constantly by Chavez, who frequently accuses the United States of "imperialist" policies.
Obama on Sunday called the gift "a nice gesture."
"I think it was, it was a nice gesture to give me a book," he said at a press conference at the conclusion of the three day summit. "I'm a reader."
Obama added that recent harsh rhetoric did not mean that the two countries could not engage in civil dialogue.
"It's unlikely that as a consequence of me shaking hands or having a polite conversation with Mr. Chavez that we are endangering the strategic interest of the United States," Obama said.
Good Obama, keep bowing like a servant to camel fucking "royalty" from the middle east. Keep shitting your pants and walking away like a gutless father who's children literally beat him up when North Korea disobeys and launches long range ballistic missiles. Keep having your little sit downs with countries like Iran to tell them why they shouldn't build nuclear programs at lunch time because that's the only time they'll take a minute from building nuclear programs to talk to you.
It's a nice gesture? IT'S A NICE FUCKING GESTURE!?!? A South American DICTATOR who openly, constantly, verbally, tears down the U.S. gives you an (agreeably outdated) anti-American book and you say it's a nice gesture? You... Mr. President... are a massive piece of dog shit in a crisp new suit. Dog shit in suits may look better than dog shit that isn't wearing a suit it still reaks of shit and makes no positive contribution to society.
Our president is a tree hugging hippie assclown without even the balls to to stand up for himself against an unruly quadriplegic girl scout and this is the man who's supposed to lead our country? This fucking eunuch needs to go. As for Chavez, he needs lured to a "summit" or meeting or whatever you want to call it, fitted for a nice pair of cement shoes and sent Christmas fishing with Scott Peterson... at the very least a Glasgow Grin and a boot in the ass.
