CARACAS, Venezuela Oct 1, 2006 (AP)— Venezuela President Hugo Chavez said Sunday he has received warnings from within the White House that the Bush administration is plotting to assassinate him or topple his left-leaning government.

Citing what he said were warnings from an alleged White House informant, Chavez told thousands of supporters at a campaign rally that President Bush has ordered him to be killed before he leaves office in 2008.

Bush "has said that before he goes, Hugo Chavez shouldn't be the president of Venezuela," Chavez told the crowd. "The president of the United States has said it, especially in recent days. What he doesn't know is that I have friends in the White House."

The Venezuelan leader has claimed before that the U.S. government is out to kill him allegations that U.S. officials deny.

The latest accusation came a day after he alleged that there had been a recent attempt to assassinate him and said those responsible had since fled to neighboring Colombia.

Chavez appeared to link the alleged plot to his main rival in upcoming presidential elections, Gov. Manuel Rosales of Zulia state, claiming that he is in constant danger from opponents seeking to get rid of him.

He said a sniper had waited with a long-range gun and planned to shoot him after he debarked a helicopter, he said. He did not elaborate further on the alleged plot.

Chavez vowed to win the Dec. 3 vote and continue governing this South American nation until 2021. "Fourteen more years, that's what's coming," Chavez said.

This guy is getting more and more paranoid by the month. Seriously, its getting boring and a nuisance to the U.S. He's already made friends with Iran just to antagonize us. Wonder whats next.

Oh .. that's a frightening thought, isn't it??? Considering how whacked out he is and the delusions and paranoia he's sprouting (not to mention the 'friends' he's keeping)... I think we could be in for some very explosive situations with the nut.

You people have to understand, that Chavez and Castro love attention, good or bad, and they will put out stuff like this to call attention to themselves all the time.

Its one way of getting the attention they need. I doubt if Chavez has an informant at all.

On the other hand, its not totally incomprehensible that there is a price on his head for things he's said.
They like to stay in the limelight of the political world, and will say and do anything to be front row center of the news.
Its always been this way with Castro, and Chavez is the lap dog- so they're a pair working together to get lots of exposure.
Right now, bush has bigger fish to fry, imo, and i dont see him ordering a hit just because he was called a devil. After all, he'd have to put out a hit on the entire world if this was the case.

"EL DIABLO" Muhaha hahahahaha.......

Dgtempe hit it pretty much on the head.

Chavez is nothing more than a publicity junky.

Fame - for some - is a narcotic.
Don't think so?
Look at the big name sports figures who retire, do the honorarium circuit for a while and when it slows down, they come out of retirement for another shot at things.
Publicity is generated once again and they enjoy the limelight for a while.

I'm hoping Chavez does make it to the elections.
My guess is he will lose.
I would imagine that many Venezuelan's are getting tired of his BS ways.

Whatever Chavez is, which i think is a very clever man manipulating the citizens of countries rather than the governments, I wouldn't be surprised if what he says is true. The US loves to get involved in South America.

Maybe the White House is actually under the control of Pat Robinson?
