Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez branded US President George Bush "an alcoholic and a sick man," during his appearance at a Harlem church on Thursday, receiving a round of applause from people in the crowd, which included actor Danny Glover, activists and other supporters. Chavez also promised to double the amount of discounted heating oil his country was shipping to needy Americans. The Venezuelan leader also called Bush's policies in Iraq criminal, adding he hoped Americans would before long "awaken" and elect a better president. He said that while he opposed Bush, the American people "are our friends."
