Senator Jim Talent says this week’s United Nations rant by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez showed a complete lack of class and taste. In a speech to the United Nations, and later outside the U.N., Chavez criticized the Bush Administration and insulted President Bush, personally, calling him “the Devil.” Talent says most Americans – Republicans and Democrats – realize these comments were terrible. Talent says he doesn’t know why the United States should have to put up with these uncivil comments that no other country would accept. Talent believes sheer civility should dictate that world leaders say civil and polite things about leaders in a country being visited.
