There are at least three reasons why Joe Kennedy should not be a U.S. senator from any state. First, he’s not only a defender of a declared enemy of the U.S., but is also guilty of shamelessly using that enemy’s resources in an unsuccessful attempt to polish his own image here in America. I refer, of course, to Kennedy’s deal with Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez under which the latter gives the former heating oil which is then sold to “the poor” in America.

The deal makes Kennedy an enabler of a disgusting PR victory for Chavez and assists the tinhorn tyrant in his ongoing stripping of the Venezuelan people of the few remaining shreds of democratic freedom they have left. It is likely to be generations before the people of Venezuela will recover any realistic hope of regaining their freedom.
