    Obama's Bureau of Labor Statistics must have helped them revise the figures.

    I'm not shocked that Chavez won, all things considered. His opponent this time is a really handsome guy, though. I hope he physically survives his loss in the polls.

    They fixed the election. Then if anyone tries to challenge it, they will probably end up dead.

    Guess who else supported Chavez?
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    When is the cancer going to claim him? (which is kind of ironic being that he is a cancer on his country)

    If these movie stars like him so much, why don't they move there?

    Argentina's top TV journalist Jorge Lanata has alleged that he was held in the basement of Caracas airport for nearly two hours while Venezuela's secret service erased his team's camera, computer and cellphone memories. Only then, he says, were they allowed to leave the country.

    Lanata, a harsh critic of the Venezuelan government of Hugo Chavez and of the Argentinian president Cristina Kirchner, was returning to Buenos Aires on a regular airline flight after covering the Venezuelan election. One of the most popular segments of Lanata's show is a comedy segment with Chavez and Kirchner impersonators that has made his show, Periodismo Para Todos (Journalism for Everyone), one of the most popular on Argentine television.

    The journalist said that he and his team were interrogated by Venezuelan secret police and accused of spying because, during his report last night for the Argentinian TV channel 13, he showed two written orders from Venezuela's secret service ordering his surveillance while in Caracas.

    "We are very shaken and they erased all the material we were bringing back," said Lanata on his release. The passengers of Lanata's airline flight had to wait for nearly two hours while the journalist and his team were interrogated.

    Obama wasted no time in congratulating Chavez.

    The sad thing is that if Chavez had lost, the entire balance of power in the region would have shifted in our favor. Chavez provides safe haven for the Colombian FARC, as well as other terror groups, he has allowed the Russians and Iranians the use of Venezuelan ports for their navies, he provides cover for Iranian bankers so that they can evade sanctions and bankrolls all sorts of mischief with oil revenues. Any US President who wasn't enamored of colonialist studies would see Chavez as a facilitator to our enemies, and an enemy in his own right.
