Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

At U.N., Chavez Calls Bush 'The Devil'

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez took his verbal battle with the United States to the floor of the U.N. General Assembly on Wednesday, calling President Bush "the devil."

"The devil came here yesterday," Chavez said, referring to Bush's address Tuesday. "He came here talking as if he were the owner of the world."


This pisses me off. This is why I no longer buy gas from CITGO (for those of you that don't know, Venezuela owns CITGO.) Chavez even held up a Noam Chomsky book during his speech. Why we would let somebody like that enter our country is beyond me.

Any U. S. gasoline retailer selling Citgo needs to find another brand... quick.
