Chavez Status Update #8

He can sing if he wants to. He can leave your friends behind. Our favorite tinpot little South American dictator is back to blaming Bush as he sets his sights on singing his way back into the hearts of Mexicans everywhere. You go, Hugo.

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez says the United States is the reason for the diplomatic rift between his country and Mexico.

Speaking to thousands of his supporters in Caracas Saturday, Mr. Chavez laid the blame for the conflict squarely on President Bush, whom the Venezuelan leader called "Mister Danger."

Mr. Chavez also told the crowd he hoped things "cool off" between Venezuela and Mexico, then he sang several tunes accompanied by a Mexican mariachi band.
