While Delahunt clearly has no problem collaborating with a man who denounces the United States daily as the “number one terrorist nation on earth,” others, thankfully, do.

No one need take my word for it. Simply speak with those in the duly elected government of Colombia. Some will flat out tell you that they believe Chavez represents the greatest single threat to our hemisphere.

Speak with the newly elected president of Mexico and he will gladly tell you that he owes his election to the fact that he ran not primarily against his socialist opponent but against Hugo Chavez with the promise to the people of Mexico that he would not let the Venezuelan infiltrate the country or help elect a hand-picked stooge.

As Chavez accumulates more oil money, more power and more terrorist allies, he will try to make covert and overt moves against the United States. And when he does, we all need to remember and identify his apologists here in the United States.

At the top of that list is Rep. William Delahunt.
