So which one is Bush and which one is Gore?
 
2013-04-15 01:15:35 AM  
I'll give this to the Venezuelans.  If the election was stolen, that is how you do it.  Probably could've padded the results a little more, but there has been "mandates" with less.

Shady democracies in south america?  You don't say!

Chances are that this will be the last "election" Venezuelans will partake in that they didn't know the winner ahead of time, any takers?

I thought Chavez had risen from the grave or something.

Yeah, I was really kind of hoping for some zombie Chavez. So disappointed.

Leftists governments usually have lots of trouble unless they win clear majorities.  Right wing governments act like they have a complete mandate when they win close ones, and the left usually rolls over for them because most of the leaders on the left are quite rich and benefit personally from right wing policies.

More like "Americans casting bullshiat aspersions II: Electric Boogaloo", but I understand that doesn't roll off the tongue as well.
 
2013-04-15 01:41:17 AM  
And as Americans we have very little place to disparage their democratic process considering how completely farked up our election process is.
 
2013-04-15 01:46:12 AM  
Yeah, another bogeyman for the RW to curse at and tremble in fear of!

Not sure how they've managed all these months since Chavez's death. Must have been tough for them.

"I have won by nearly 300,000 votes. It is the decision of the people," he said.

More than 18.9 million Venezuelans are registered to vote in the presidential election.

More than 68% of the country's registered voters had cast ballots by 3 p.m. Sunday, elections officials said.


Not exactly a mandate, dude.

Why is what happens in Venezuela my problem? This is nothing more or less than the status quo, so what terrible change should I expect that it should be of great concern to me?

Don't care. Meet the new king, same as the old king.

Looks like the Opposition members won't be able to break out their Augusto Pinocchet T shirts, and relish the prospect of arresting and torturing Chavezistas.

They'll have to grit their teeth while the poor continue to get jobs, education, literacy, housing, and medical care as they did under Chavez. The elites will actually have to continue to treat the poor with some respect because their party has political power.

American capitalists can't stand it when their lackeys can't treat their economic inferiors as fully empowered citizens. It cramps their style.

I just knew Maduro would win. A little bird told me.
 
2013-04-15 02:07:14 AM  
Damn.  I hope a recount puts Capriles in power.  I'd love to be able to go to Citgo again in good conscience.

Looks like capitalist thugs like you are apoplectic that corporations can't at long last resume their looting of Venezuela.

Maybe the U.S. will be able to rig the next election for you so Venezuelan workers can enjoy fine living under capitalism like the average Nigerian and Saudi.

A country rich in oil like Venezuela is nearly a ruin because of Chavez' policies. It's one of the most violent places on earth, and it wasn't back in the 1980s.

Maduro is an uneducated man who will only lead them to further ruin.

Boycotting Citgo just means you don't know what the word "fungible" means or the structure of who owns Citgo stations in the US.

Yep.  Lacking Chavez's charisma, he'll just try to out-Chavez Chavez to try to make himself look good and further crap over the country.

You know I'd have more regard for the anti Chavez comments if you people could even find Venezuela on a map, or even your own state.
 
2013-04-15 02:31:19 AM  
Meh. It sucks for the Venezuelan people, but his administration's ineptitude should ensure the balance of power shifts to the other side by the next election

And John McCain President, as a by-product of that.

Even when oil fails, it succeeds!

Its hilarious to hear Americans speak of the results of internationally monitored elections in Venezuela, while all major legislation in the American democracy is always on sale to those who have money.

But nice projection there.

electronicmaji: The fact it was this close almost assures voter fraud was involved.


Ehh, probably not.

I mean, there's gonna be voter fraud, we have it in most democracies, but the question of whether or not it's going to change the outcome is the one that actually matters.  Yes, it's South America and yes, it's a shiatty not-us country but Venezuelan elections, which have a LOT of international observers every time (for over a decade now) have yet to show an appreciable, "would swing a full percentage point" effect.   And don't think either side has immaculately clean hands either.  There are chavistas and anti-chavistas who are willing to break the rules and try to cheat the vote.

The fact that it was so close means he's in trouble though.  After the exodus and after the brutalization and after Saint Chavez died in office (leaders who die in office tend to have all their sins washed away by, "a nation mourns" tears, no I don't know why but it happens) the heir apparent still managed to only get a 1.5% squeaker of a victory.  If he can't find a BIG distraction (like scary muslims) or find some way to mend fences and repair relations his deficit of political capital is going to cost him.
