Hugo: Thank you for visiting our country. Now go home.

There is really only one thing to say after listening to clownish behavior of Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez. “Say No to Citgo.” I think I would push my car before I’d stop at a Venezuela-owned Citgo station. Citgo has been owned by Petróleos de Venezuela, the national oil company of Venezuela, since 1990.

The beauty of America is that Hugo and the Iranian president–whose name I don’t even want to learn how to spell–can come onto our soil and verbally soil our nation and its leader–and leave again without being thrown in prison or taken hostage.

Try it in either of their countries.

There is part of me that would like to make it a little difficult for them while they’re here. Maybe just a U.S. fighter squadron escort out of our airspace, with no invitation to return.
