    I wouldn't shed a tear if he died. It'd be nice to see a more level-headed member of the Venezuelan left take over, especially considering that most of Chavez' successes have been because of high oil prices.

    I'll be sure and quote this the next time you rag on Fox News.

    Chavez is a typical dictator that loves to hear himself speak and assumes everyone is enthralled with himself as he is. His weekly takeover of the state controlled tv stationsfor 6+ hours proves that.

    Venezuela could be a great country, but won't be until he is six feet under.

    This cat can't be bagged, bro. Your assumptions I think Chavéz is some sort of Venezuelan Ghandi are wildly misplaced and wither meant to be insulting or some sort of calling out (which is kindof strange and funny of you). Debate or issue a baseless insult so I can report you. Do something, don't dither and waste my time as you have been so far.
    If you think I'm wasting your time, stop responding.

    See how simple that is.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Not sure what the CEPR has to do with the group I was talking about, but the CEPR is definitely very progressive.

    I think I can pretty much rag on Fox and get away with it. Colloquially, intellectually, pretty much on every level.

    Chavez is a typical dictator
    Typically elected repeatedly, democratically.

    that loves to hear himself speak and assumes everyone is enthralled with himself as he is.
    Yes, yes, we get you hate him on a personal level.

    His weekly takeover of the state controlled tv stationsfor 6+ hours proves that.
    Ooh 'takeover' thats pretty dramatic.

    Venezuela could be a great country, but won't be until he is six feet under.
    : I think your putting down the complexities of having a rentier oil economy and resource rich nation. Supplying the poor with education, housing, and dignity can't really make it out into any measure of success. The ultimate fly in your soup is his democratic re-election witch will debunk all your claims of any monstrous dictatorship by him. Lately some buzz has been going around about increasing awareness of the domestic terror of the right wing regime that were around when 'things were good' with thousands dissapeared and tortured.

    If you think I'm wasting your time, stop responding.
    And give you some twisted satisfaction that confirms whatever twisted beliefs you have, no thanks.

    See how simple that is.
    I think my ignore button may be simpler sometime. Nice not debating in any way with you.

    Good to see you still are a strong believer in hypocrisy.

    Yep, so was Saddam Hussein.

    I agree in many ways but who could keep the movement cohesive? I see nothing wrong with using oil wealth to fund projects for the poor for the time being. Something more sustainable may develop which would be good. I don't see Chavez as not being level headed but not tactful enough in his speech. He stirs up more trouble than does him good when he gets telegraphed into north American television.
