Chavez about Obama: "Smell of Sulfur Is Gone"

In a recent speech at the U.N. General Council meeting, Hugo Chavez, the Socialist "president" of Venzuela, said, "The smell of sulfur is gone. Now it smells of something else. It smells of hope." His comment refers to his repeated caricature of George W. Bush as the devil and his comments earlier this year about Obama smelling as much of sulfur as Bush. Later in the same aimless diatribe he asked the U.S. president to "come join the Socialist side. Come join the Axis of Evil over here." If one of the members of the "Axis of Evil" senses hope in Barack Obama, linking President Obama's policies to Socialism, how should we react to the policies here?
