People with too much time on their hands

We read from The Hill:
GOP Conference Chairman Rep. Mike Pence (Ind.) on Tuesday afternoon called the photographs taken of President Obama and Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez shaking hands at the Summit of the Americas "an enormous propaganda victory for the socialist dictator."

Pence indicated that House Republicans intended to confront Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about Obama and Chavez meeting and mugging for the cameras when she appears before the Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday morning.
I will very respectfully suggest Rep. Pence to go back to other Republican activities (tea parties?) instead of risking to make a fool of himself. After all, even Mel Martinez, GOP Senator of Florida, was OK with the Port of Spain events, as seen on CNN. Not to mention conservative IBD. Or FOX wondering aloud whether Obama did not scold Chavez in their last encounter. Nothing good for the US will come from grilling Secretary Clinton on such a silly matter at this time. There will be better opportunities in the future. However Chavez and the Castros could well benefit a lot in front of their public opinions, showing how capable they are to perturb US politics.
