Once again you are a flagrant liar. First, Venezuela is a federal presidential republic (dictatorship), not a socialist state. Also Obama and Chavez are far from pals:

On 22 March 2009 Chavez called Obama "ignorant" and claimed Obama "has the same stench as Bush", after the US accused Venezuela of supporting the insurgent Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia.[41] Chavez was offended after Obama said that he had "been a force that has interrupted progress in the region", resulting in his decision to put Venezuela's new ambassador to the United States on hold.[42]
During the Summit of the Americas on 17 April 2009, Chavez expressed his wish to become Obama's friend.[43][44]
On 10 September 2009, Chavez gave a speech at the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia in Moscow declaring that the United States is "the greatest terrorist in world history", adding that the "Yankee empire will fall. It's already falling, and will disappear from the face of the Earth, and it's going to happen this century." [45]
On 20 December 2011, Chavez called Obama "A clown, embarrassment, shame to Black People" after Obama criticized Venezuela’s ties with Iran and Cuba.[46]
