In response to DirtyWaterLover's comment:
So what exactly did Chavez do to any of you?
Apparently he didn't give them free heating oil... Maybe they are mad about that.
Hugo Chavez removed democratic rule from his country and turned it into a scoialist state while nationalizing oil and farms. He imprisoned thousands of detractors, while financing leftist terrorists throughout Latin America. He was a bizarre combination Robin Hood and Sadham Housein and depending on one's own politics you saw what you wanted to see.
Yes, he gave Joe the oil man free oil in order to gain favor from socialist leaning politicians, while supposedly embarassing the US.
The Hollywood elitists; Michael Moore, Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon et al are in mourning.
