You do know what book Chavez gave to Obama?

"PORT OF SPAIN (AFP) – A book accusing the United States of being a neo-colonial bully in the Americas has rocketed up the sales charts, after a copy was given as a gift by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to US leader Barack Obama.

The book, “The Open Veins of Latin America” was given by Chavez, a longtime US critic, to Obama at an Americas summit in Trinidad and Tobago.

The English version of the tome, well-known in leftist political circles, catapulted from 734th place to second place in just 24 hours on the online bookseller Amazon.com.

The work in its original Spanish language had an even more spectacular ascent, from 47,468th place to 283th. It also showed substantial increased sales on the website of online bookseller Barnes and Noble.

The work by Uruguayan author Eduardo Galeano is about the region’s colonial past and exploitation by the world’s big powers – themes hammered constantly by Chavez, who frequently accuses the United States of “imperialist” policies."

You really don't think that Lib University and likely every single Univ in CA, and most of NYC ones (Columbia, NYC) aren't coming up with a semester course in how the US raped the America's?

They'll be salivating like mad dogs with their planned ciricula on using this book as the main instruction book for the course....
