WTH... so an American President accepts a gift from a well-known slimeball, Hugo Chavez, that rips the West a new a-hole and blames U.S. "economic exploitation and political dominance over the region" for it's problems? Is this a late April Fool's joke or is Obama just an idiot? This is what goes down when kids run the country. BO's probably reading it right now as he touches himself.
A book by an Uruguayan journalist that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez gave to President Barack Obama is now the No. 5 seller on Amazon.com.
It's an astounding jump for "Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent," by Uruguayan journalist Eduardo Galeano.
The paperback edition was ranked 54,295 on the online retailer before Chavez gave Obama a Spanish-language edition of the 1971 book on Saturday. It had jumped to No. 5 by Sunday.
The English hardcover edition is listed as out of print.
Galeano's book documents how foreign interests have dominated and afflicted Latin America since the Spanish conquest. It's a favorite among leftists.
