Rep. Charlie Rangel Tells Off Hugo Chavez

No media bias here, folks. I just thought people would like to see a video that was just posted at YouTube (hat tip to Drudge) of Rep. Charlie Rangel of New York saying to Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez what most right-thinking Americans are feeling after his disgraceful performance at the United Nations yesterday. Here’s the YouTube video.

Update: CNN now has Rangel's full statement here, and the following is the text of the YouTube excerpt:

You do not come into my country, my congressional district, and you do not condemn my president. If there is any criticism of President Bush, it should be restricted to Americans, whether they voted for him or not. I just want to make it abundantly clear to Hugo Chavez or any other president, do not come to the United States and think because we have problems with our president that any foreigner can come to our country and not think that Americans do not feel offended when you offend our Chief of State.

Amen, Charlie.
