President Obama shook hands with Venezuela's Hugo Chavez on Friday at the opening of the Summit of the Americas being held this weekend in Trinidad and Tobago.
It wasn't immediately clear Friday evening what words were exchanged between the two leaders, but photos released by the Venezuelan government show Obama clasping Chavez's hand and smiling broadly.

At least he didn’t bow - or did he?
Da_m, what has happened to our country? What happened to dignity and acting like adults.
This is going to be a long, long four years!
Sometimes in life we just end up having to shake hands with people we don't like. A begrudging handshake with no smile wouldn't have bothered me too much, but the pic you link shows him smiling broadly and even putting his hand on Chavez's shoulder - body language that says "you're my friend."
Obama is a disgrace.
if this is true then it is disgusting that this man in the white house is being nice to our enemies but ignoring our allies.
He has upset our allies and yet is shaking and bowing to other countries who hate us
that photo now will be put all over the commie, socialist media as propaganda same as the bow to muslims
he has no shame or class what so ever
smiling while doing it and yet shaking with a man who until recently hated us , put down our past president etc
That’s probably his plan.
Soon he will be arming them to keep the peace here.
I really do not know if I can stomach this idiot any longer.
shaking hands bowing and then has his arm on chavez while smiling.
obama needs to be impeached and the GOP had better say something about this and other tings which this idiot is doing
I am so f offed right now
Every enemy of America, has a good friend in Comrade Obama. He’s the Commie-In-Chief.
That picture ought to be good for a few million more in Hollywood donations. I think Sean Penn will come up with a million dollars alone.
Meeting with rogue dictators without preconditions.
Janeane Garofalo will have it framed and put over her bed!
exactly this is not a gentleman’s hand shake this is the ghetto shake.
this is appalling, first bowing , talking to chavez , shaking hands with chavez and now Castro, not too mention talking to Iran
meanwhile he has upset our allies especially the UK who has lost men and women helping us overseas in this war on terror
he is dong this hardest to upset Bush and other past presidents, he us living undoing more than 40 years of work .
I am totally convinced now he hates this country and we have been infiltrated by commies.
Ayers, Soros ,set him up and they got him in there to destroy us as they knew their violence was not working
this has been in the works for years upon years now , he needs to go, surely there is enough stuff out there to get him out of the white house.
There has to be evidence to show obama is an enemy of this country.
could someone not get that blackberry or find papers like his B/C
What will the GOP leadership do in response to this sh!t? Oh, probably nothing...
