RUSH: Michael in Piqua, Ohio. Welcome to the EIB Network, sir. Great to have you with us.
CALLER: Hey, what’s going on Rush? First-time caller.
RUSH: Good. Thank you. Great to hear from you.
CALLER: Man, Hugo Chavez! You hear anything about this in the papers? He’s taking over. He?s seized total control of the private sector, electricity, telecommunications, energy, and he was greeted with open arms I believe it was today or yesterday by his people and mostly the supporters of his party. I think all we’re missing here is basically a little hail Hitler, if you ask me.
RUSH: If they don’t greet him with open arms they die, or get thrown in prisons designed by Fidel Castro. Hugo Chavez is a dictator. But, you know, the guy’s pretty clean. I saw him at the United Nations make that speech, and he’s very articulate, like Barack Obama is clean black guy and an articulate black guy. Hugo Chavez has the same characteristics. But he’s a dictator, nationalizing everything: Big Oil, phones, television shows, stations, networks, broadcast facilities. There won’t be very many more elections in that country. It’s in the news, but the Drive-By Media is not concerned about it, they love dictators, they envy the power that these dictators have. I’m not kidding you. The Democrats, liberals, envy the power these people have. Chavez is not the enemy. He’s just trying to do the best he can for his people. We’ll be back. Plus Democrats love him.
