    Venezuela Opposition Leader Rosales Flees to Peru (Update3)

    Actions have costs, and unlike Reagan, who gave oppressed people hope, Obama gives The Oppressed good reason to be even more fearful.

    Obama.. The Despot's Best Friend.

    Willing to laugh and listen to despots crap all over America, but unable or willing to speak with the Rush Limbaugh, Obama's anointed leader of the opposition.

    Despots "yes we can speak with you"... Conservatives... "no chance we will speak with you."

    This is the same mentality as during The Clintons years. The Republicans were the enemy... real enemies and threats were outsourced to the UN or not dealt with at all.

    Venezuela Opposition Leader Rosales Flees to Peru (Update3) - Bloomberg.com
    The crackdown comes as Chavez seeks improved relations with President Barack Obama, whose hand he shook at least three times at last weekend’s Fifth Summit of the Americas.

    Republican Senator John Ensign of Nevada said in broadcast comments over the weekend that it was “irresponsible” to be seen “joking” with Chavez. Venezuela is the fourth-biggest supplier of foreign crude oil to the U.S.

    Obama sent a strong message to our real friends in the region when he **** all over Brazil in not signing the trade agreement.

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

    Pain can be such a beautiful thing

    Meh, it seems like Rosales is just exploiting the "tyrant" image propped up by the mainstream media in order to further his own selfish motives. Many Venezuelan politicians have been brought up on corruption charges the past few years, and not all of them have been part of the opposition.

    Dare I ask what the link is between Obama shaking Chavez,s hand and Rosales getting done for corruption is? On that note why are we assuming that its beyond the realms of possibility that he's guilty? He particiapted in a coup attempt in the year 2000 so it cetainly wouldnt be his first offence.

    The fact that Rosales was allowed to run in elections despite particiapation in this coup demonstrates that zimmers claim that Chavez is a despot is very inaccurate. Which despot allows those who attempt the *violent* overthrow of the government to run in elections? Alternatively which Lennist despot would allow Fox News to be broadcast every day

    Even if we assume for the sake of argument that Chavez is seeking to become a despot then Obama's more conciliatory stance toward Latin America will help prevent this from happening. Chavez wont have the option to use the an external enemy as a pretext for doing so.

    I disagree, so do many others.


    President for life, election fraud, people protesting him in the streets. And now this opposition leader fleeing?


    spending Venezualan money on american poor in a propaganda attempt instead of feeding his people...


    For starters.

    The despot who knows he's going to win because he counted the votes before the election.
