Giuliani assails Venezuela’s Chavez

Presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani said Tuesday that the socialist Venezuelan president is dangerous to U.S. interests.

In a speech to Hispanic small business leaders, the Republican brought up Chavez while discussing ways the United States could become free from its reliance on foreign oil.

The Quotes:

“Isn’t it annoying, upsetting and even in some cases a matter of national security that we have to send money to our enemies?” Giuliani asked. “We need a president who knows how to get things done so we don’t have to be sending money to Chavez.

“Who would listen to Chavez if he didn’t have all this oil money? Nobody would listen to him,” Giuliani said.

“I feel perfect freedom to point out that Hugo Chavez is a person who’s acting against the interests of the United States. He’s someone where we’d be in a much better position if we could cut him off. If we could say we don’t want or need Venezuelan oil,” Giuliani told reporters after the speech. “I don’t think there’s anyone that’s more outspoken about how dangerous I think he is.


Well said by the Mayor. But, now America and the American people need to get serious about oil conservation, more oil exploration and alternative fuels and technologies.
