They say if you can't say anything good about someone you shouldn't say anything at all... There is absolutely nothing good anyone cas say about Hugo Chavez. This man was the embodiment of pure evil. The abuse of power displayed by this dictator knew no bounds.
I'm wondering if they are going to apologize for demonizing the opposition for implying Chavez was going to die. Turns out they were correct, and were correct for speculating. Peace and Liberty to Venezuela and Cuba
Replace Venezuelan with American and you can see where we're heading... "yet was also a masterful communicator and strategist who tapped into Venezuelan nationalism to win broad support, particularly among the poor."
Adios Mr. Dictator. You destroyed a beautiful country. Hopefully the person who takes your place is not half as evil as you were.
Respectfully, Mr. Chavez should have read a chapter from former Pope Benedicts book on how to humbly step down from a leadership position acting on behalf of the citizens and the country.
Not too surprised. When I heard his veep was blaming the cancer on "his enemies" rather than claiming that rumors of his death were "absurd", I knew the end had to be near.
Chavez used his country's vast oil wealth to launch social programs that include state-run food markets, new public housing, free health clinics and education programs. Poverty declined during Chavez's presidency. If you call that pure evil, up is down.
Hugo, you will not be missed. His pure socialistic rulership would be a nightmare to live in.
A poster claims Chavez used the countries oil wealth to alleviate poverty. You bought the lie. I have been to Venezuela a dozen times. Chavez created misery and nothing else for all the people.
Joheraramone4: " the man is the embodiment of pure evil." Now that is hyperbole. Also makes you wonder why the US cannot have free clinics and education. That hardly sounds evil, it sounds like common sense.
