    And he's still dead, even a day later. So I guess this is really it, then. I was hoping for a message telling us how that sulphur really smells.

    Now if Castro will kick over, Rodman can cap Jong-Un, and we can nail Ahmadenijad with a drone.....

    There is nothing "just" about socialism.

    I think this is not good. Not good at all. I wish Chavez would live to see his idiotic policies bearing their disastrous fruit, and "the masses" turning against him. Now, whatever happens will not be his fault. The myth of a charismatic leader who cared about the poor will live on - and spawn other abominations.

    You would be surprised how populism and rhetoric work. Chavez is still extremely popular in Venezuela and will probably remain so for decades after his death, like Peron of Argentina.

    Re: AP: VP of Venezuela Has Announced Hugo Chavez has Died

    Here is what Obama's Socialist Professor and mentor at Harvard had to say about Chavez. Note his reference to Joe Kennedy as well.



    DR CHARLES OGLETREE (06 March 2013): I think it's worth noting yesterday we lost the President and the leader of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez and I know there's been some conversation about that and what people may not know is that as much as people see his sort of anti-American point of view, one of our former members of Congress has had a good relationship with him and I think that makes a big difference. When you think about Venezuela as the fourth largest donor of provider of oil and other assets to the United States I think it's worth noting that in fact one of his great friends and great supporters here in the United States whose been talking about him for a long time because of giving fuel to freezing families during the winter is the son of one our great Congressman Joe Kennedy and I think that makes an enormous amount of difference in terms of thinking what he means and what he meant to that country.....snip~
