Even Chavez cannot trump the US Constitution

It's all under the guise of 'humanitarianism'. More accurately, it is an attempt to undermine the US Constitution. Unfortunately Chavez and his associates are not so motivated. It's clear to anybody with the slightest reading of constitutional law, that a state cannot enter into an agreement with a foreign country. Either the media is misrepresenting the situation, or it is blatantly unconstitutional.
That said, the goal of Chavez and his allies within the US is more likely to embarrass the administration by forcing the US government to exert its authority to "deprive the poor of cheap oil". I think they're underestimating how seriously America and americans take the Constitution. This PR stunt will be seen for what it is.
It's a sad day when our elected officials team up with foreign leaders against our own leadership.
