Liberals are in deep grief over the death of despicable despot, Hugo Chavez who finally did us the favor of exiting our planet. Sean Penn and Oliver Stone are devastated. The mainstream media is waxing downright poetic about the thug.
Obama has yet to make a statement, but the two were quite friendly when they got together and why not? Birds of a feather and all.
Chavez’s reign revolved around class warfare, sound familiar? How about nationalizing once productive factories and oil wells? Granted, he left a few businesses under private ownership but controlled by the government. Obama’s dreams realized.
While parading himself around as the great champion of the poor, Chavez drove them further into poverty by recklessly printing currency and running up massive debt while living the life of the ruling class.
He did suck up more TV time than Obama currently commands, but given enough time, who knows. Poor Hugo never got to use drones against his own citizens, a treat he would have relished.
Chavez’s own role model was Fidel Castro, who thought of Chavez as something of a dork. Hugo was also an admirer of Ahmadinejad; the two lunatics were quite cozy. And rest assured, should Hezbollah or other terrorist organization had wanted Chavez’s help getting a dirty bomb across our southern border, they could count on him.
The left’s reaction to Chavez’s death may be nauseating, but it was entirely predictable. Ted Nugent had the better response on TMZ: Adios, Mo Fo.
