    Kerry attacks Bush's stand on Chavez 

    Presumed Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry is accusing the White House of failing to promote democratic reforms in Venezuela, focusing attention on an issue that Democrats believe could hamper President Bush's quest for Hispanic votes in Florida.

    Kerry, a Massachusetts senator, issued the statement on his campaign website, charging that Bush's passive approach to backing opponents of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez reflects a larger record of "sending mixed signals by supporting undemocratic processes in our own hemisphere."

    The message from Kerry was an attack on Bush's image on Latin America policy, but strategists said it was primarily intended to further erode the president's standing among Cuban-American voters in Florida, who view Chavez as an ally of Fidel Castro and support stronger U.S. action to assist a recall vote against him.
