Chavez: "Obama is a total fraud"

Caracas, 20 Dic. AVN.- The president of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez, replied to statements said by his counterpart from the United States, Barack Obama, who criticized the sovereign relationship between Venezuela and Cuba, among others.

Chavez asked Obama to take care of poor people in his own country, who since the arrival of winter endured cuts in social aids so as to finance heating systems in their home.

"Obama is a total fraud. He cut social aids of home heating oil for the poor," Chavez said during a cabinet meeting at the Miraflores Presidential Palace.

In the face of that situation, President Chavez commented he held a conversation with Oil Minister Rafael Ramirez so as to increase the support of Venezuela's CITGO to poor people who endure temperatures below zero during winter in the United States.

According to Chavez, Obama is just looking for votes by means of critics and called him to work with "the good people" in the United States.

"Obama is just about losing the elections and with these criticism he just wants to win some votes. You are a fraud, a total fraud. If I could be a candidate in the United States, I would beat you. I would win 80-20, I would beat you with all that good people you have," Chavez said.
