Britney Spear's Speculum: Chavez pissed off the right wing oil tycoons in this country. He wasn't bad at all
Philip J. Fry: I need a refresher. Why are we supposed to hate Chavez?
ongbok: He did stop the super wealthy and foreign corporations from raping the country. His methods in doing so and quieting his opposition may not have been desirable, but if he didn't take the steps that he did, his opposition probably would have killed him a long time ago.Another thing is that when he was ousted in a coup, the people of Venezuela demanded that he be put back into office.
Satanic_Hamster: Subby; Chavez was good for Venezuela's poor. Not defending his methods, corruption, and anti-democratic actions, but you can't honestly say he didn't do a lot to improve the lives of the country's poor.
Jackson Herring: Satanic_Hamster: Subby; Chavez was good for Venezuela's poor. Not defending his methods, corruption, and anti-democratic actions, but you can't honestly say he didn't do a lot to improve the lives of the country's poor.Of COURSE you can. Don't you know that Jimmy Carter is a Democrat and Chavez was a "liberal"? You can say anything you want because liberals are bad, QED
DamnYankees: Chavez may have done many horrible things, but giving stuff to poor people wasn't one of them.
kingoomieiii: DamnYankees: Why is it horrible of O'Reilly to say it about Obama, but everyone is right to say it about Chavez?Because when O'Reilly says it, he's lying.
