Chavez: Obama an “Ignoramus”

President Obama has apparently wounded Hugo Chavez’s pride. "He goes and accuses me of exporting terrorism? The least I can say is that he's a poor ignoramus; he should read and study a little to understand reality," Chavez said yesterday, referring to an interview Obama gave in January. Chavez said Obama’s comments has caused him to reconsider his plan to send an ambassador to Washington. “My, what ignorance?,” Chavez said. “The real obstacle to development in Latin America has been the empire that you today preside over."
