Wise advice from the President

from the New York Times:

Bush said he would remind Western Hemisphere nations such as those that ”respect for property rights and human rights is essential,” that ”meddling in other elections … to achieve a short-term objective is not in the interests of the neighborhood,” and that the United States expects other nations to stand against corruption and for transparent governance.

”Let me just put it bluntly: I’m concerned about the erosion of democracy in” Venezuela and Bolivia, he said.

Wow.
