Invitation to the 'path of socialism'
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has called upon the US President Obama to follow the path to socialism, which he termed as the only way.
"Come with us, align yourself, come with us on the road to socialism. This is the only path. Imagine a socialist revolution in the United States," Chavez told a group of workers in the southern Venezuelan state of Bolivar on Friday.
Chavez, who taunted the United States as a source of capitalism, added that the US needs a leader who can take it to a 'higher' destiny and bring it out of "the sad role that it has been given under the former President George Bush, as a murderous, attacking power that is hated all around the world."
Chavez said that people are calling Obama a 'socialist' for the measures of state intervention he is taking to counter the crisis, so it would not be too far-fetched to suggest that he might join the project of '21st century
"Nothing is impossible...and some day there has to come a leader ... who interprets the best of a people who also include human beings who suffer, endure, weep and laugh," the outspoken Chavez said.
