Chavez calls Obama "ignorant"
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez continued his habit for insulting U.S. presidents, calling President Barack Obama "ignorant" in his Sunday address to the nation.
Reuters translated this as an "ignoramus."
Chavez said that after Barack Obama insulted him by saying he is an obstacle in Latin America, he will not yet be appointing a new ambassador to Washington.
“At least one could say, ‘poor ignorant person,’ ” Chávez said on his weekly radio address.
