    Well the elections really arent that questionable. The electoral obserbers who were there at the time saw no problems with the election [with the exception of a spannish MP from a party founded by a former member of General Franco's government]. No term limits does not a despot make. A despotic system would be one were Chavez, or his allies, had absolute power. Given that the opossition won many of the local elections this is clearly not the case. Its a very flawed democracy* certainly but by no means a despotic system.

    *Not my words but those of "the econmist" democracy index [remember that the economist is a very free-market magazine]

    Venezuela is a Fascist Party state very similar to Mussolini's Italy but using the dogma/rhetoric of a socialist/communist blend Chavez likes to call the Bolivarian Revolution.
    [ame=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bolivarian_Revolution]Bolivarian Revolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia[/ame]

    Its becoming the foundation for his expansionistic rhetoric and "solidarity" with other like minded types in the hempishpere.

    He control the courts, the legislator, the police, the governors, the media the supreme court, the military*, etc.. etc..

    He has now achieved by vote the legal precedent to run for life.
    Chavez will remain in office until killed or he dies from old age.
    Just read his life story and it becomes obvious to a blind man his intentions in all this.
    He is a Dictator for all intents.

    oh wait. You didn't learn that in school did you?

    And what evidence is there to suggest that Rosales isn't fleeing for actual, legit corruption charges?

    Merely because Chavez is despot doesn't make everyone else suddenly clean.

    Now with Obama joining the Hugo Chavez Book Club, it really gave Rosales no other option than to flee.

    It is ironic how the US right defends the Venezuelan right, a group of people who ruled Venezuela through so called "elections" for generations and were more corrupt that what is going on in the country at the moment.. well so far any ways. I guess it is true for the right.. 2 wrongs = 1 right.
