As If he Needs It

From the Huffington Post


CARACAS, Venezuela — President Hugo Chavez says he has a new book for President Barack Obama: “What is to be Done?” by communist Vladimir Lenin, founder of the Soviet state.

Chavez says he’ll “give it to Obama at the next meeting.”

What is to be Done?” is Lenin’s political treatise on the role of intellectuals and the proletariat in promoting revolution, written more than a decade before he led the Bolshevik takeover of Russia in 1917.

Chavez gave Obama a copy of “Open Veins of Latin America: Five Centuries of the Pillage of a Continent” by Eduardo Galeano at an April summit.

The book jumped the next day to the No. 2 seller on Amazon.com.
