238. This article from Lula's own country sounds exactly the way the more thoughtful
posters who also read the Spanish version of the news said it was written, and that it was the corporate message formed to mold public perception here which claimed, as always, Chavez was calling someone a name. What we got was a poor translation designed to inflame the slow, and willfully uninformed among us.

If I'm not mistaken I think you also mentioned in an earlier post your own reading of the Spanish articles.s

Isn't this sad? These passages are excellent, from portalmaratimba.com:
According to what I read between lines and the expressions (in the response), I concluded that Obama suffers from something that can be overcome; ignorance of what truly occurs (in Latin America), Chavez said.
And:
According to the head of state, that ignorance is due to the fact that the president of the United States "is still hearing the same thing read to him by some advisors who worked for the previous administration in the Pentagon and the White House.
I remember reading years ago you were in Brazil. I should have realized back then you also are fluent with that language, as well.

Thank you for shedding more and more light on this.
