"It doesn't smell of sulfur here anymore," Chavez said during the U.N. General Assembly Thursday -- a clear reference to the speech he gave three years earlier, in which he referred to former President George W. Bush as the devil. "It smells of something else. It smells of hope."
During Chavez’s speech, he spoke of revolution in South America and plugged Oliver Stone’s documentary, which depicts his life. He also made political jokes, including one in which he said he wouldn’t speak as long as Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi, who gave a long, rambling speech the day before.
In a more serious tone, Chavez urged President Obama to lift the United States embargo against Cuba.
