So, a swearing-in by email or Skype? He can better stay in Cuba then and use those ” novel ways” to rule Venezuela, that country being already the laughing stock of the world. I thought that countries like Italy, Syria, N. Corea, Iran and other operettes were a joke but now Venezuela clearly steals the global slap-stick show. Poor people.

The article reads, “Venezuela will postpone the inauguration of President Hugo Chavez for a new term due to health problems, the government said on Tuesday, another sign the socialist leader’s cancer may be bringing an end to his 14 years in power.”

Actually, if the HEALTHY Hugo Chavez returns to Venezuela that’s when his health could very well take a course for the worse due to an assassination attempt. That’s why Chavez is in Cuba (or wherever he actually is). These past 18 months or so Chavez has been tipped off to assassination attempts, and ill health is the excuse to go underground without looking cowardly.

You see, Venezuela has 15,000 of Cuba’s best doctors in-country, so there was never a need for Chavez to travel to Cuba for medical attention. Interestingly, no other media outlet, whether mainstream or alternative, has noticed this obvious oddity and what it means!

US government should feel ashamed for covertly inflicting cancer on the South American heads of states…. Eventually this will come biting you on your fat capitalistic behind. Just wait…
